“we'll stay again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Dennis the owner and other staff did everything to make our stay wonderful. On Sunday morning Dennis organised for our breakfast to be cooked earlier than the 10am opening from the Bistro so we could get on with our day - and lit the open fire for us as well. Our coffees arrived very quickly along with a jug of water and glasses we hadn't even requested. The meal serving had lashings of bacon, eggs to perfection, tomato, sausage and a hash brown. (10% disc as well)
For proximity to Darling Harbour and price you will be hard pressed to do as well let alone better.

Stayed for the weekend just been and had a fantastic time. From the moment we walked in, (looking completely lost!) we were welcomed and shown to our rooms, even had our bags taken for us. Great atmoshphere, CHEAP drinks!! Awesome food too. We wanted somewhere central enough but not in the middle of everything, an the Hotel was perfect. With a bus stop straight across the road and quick taxi rides to central areas it was just what we wanted. Rooms had everything we needed and apperared to be nice and clean. Only downside was the little wee bathrooms but not a biggie!! All the staff were very helpful and friendly as well!! If we are ever go to Sydney again we will be sure to book again (:

Hope & Skeez

Room Tip: Pick a room with an ensuite, bit more private!

As I entered Kirk on Harris for the first time, my reaction was mixed - the pub had character, but as we headed up to our room... The carpet was stained and worn, paint was peeling and the skirting boards were layered with dust. Our room was on the second floor. The furnishings were a little tired, but on the whole, provided everything we needed. The room was clean, and we had a queen bed, table & chairs, a kitchenette, tv and ensuite. They also provided continental breakfast. For the price, it was great, particularly as ours was a short stay, with very little time spent at the hotel. The major bonus was the location. Convenient, just a few blocks from Darling Harbour, and close to public transport. The subsidised parking also added to its appeal. We were pleased with our choice.

This reminded me of some hostels we have stayed in. You can have shared bathroom facilities or an ensuite in the room. The only difference, there were no shared rooms.

When we arrived it took a bit of working out where we needed to check in. Finally we were served by the only person in the bar once he finished pouring beers.

The carpet on the steps which lead to the accommodation is very dirty. It is in need of a shampoo/clean. My first thoughts were if the room is anything like the steps we are in trouble.

We had an ensuite room which had the exhaust fan from the kitchen and the fans from the fridges right outside our window. Once the kitchen closed, the exhaust fan stopped. I guess it could have been worse, we didn't have traffic noise or the noise from the walk sign on the traffic lights.

There was a single bed and a double bed. The single bed had a phone book propping it up on one corner. There was no shortage of pillows which was great. Not sure how long since the quilts had been washed and the blanket on the double bed had a stain which was very off putting. There was a large flat screen TV in the room.

The kettle had been boiled dry so foreign black bits kept emerging from the boiled water. Luckily there was a microwave so I was able to use this for a cup of coffee.

There was a generous amount of tea, coffee, and sugar supplied. Breakfast was provided in the form of breakfast cereal and fresh milk. A fruit drink and some packaged fruit in syrup as well as some bread (toaster in room) and butter and Vegemite, jam, honey and peanut butter.
There was also some plain Arnott's biscuits to have with a cuppa. All very generous, I thought.

We returned on the second day to find our beds had been made but the towels were not changed.

I just felt like the whole room needed a good spring clean as did the bathroom. The toilet needed fixing. It did not work on full fulsh. The sink in the kitchen needed a good scrub.

Just because it is standard pub accommodation is no excuse for it to be unclean.

They have negotiated a very affordable rate for long term parking.

This large pub is split into different areas and rooms making it cosy and seem spacious. Food is cheap, very tasty and large portions. The pub has been modenised but still retains its character.
