“Worth stopping here its so handy for everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

There was some confusion on booking in as travel agent had booked it in partners name but staff were very helpful and friend whilst sorting this out. Lovely boutique hotel but if you need a lift upstairs this is not the place for you. Rooms are very clean and tidy, bathroom ok. Breakfast is good value. Very very handy for the bridge, circular quay and the opera house. Also the tour buses stop quite near by. Just an ideal location for anyone stopping for a few days in Sydney. Didn't have a car but they organised taxis for you. The only complaint was there alcohol licence 9.30pm .... we thought they were joking! So if you want a drink in the evening ou have to go elsewhere.

Great spot for a stay in Sydney with perfect location in the Rocks, close to all public transport (esp ferries), restuarants and entertainment and having it's own good bar, terrace cafe and very hospitable staff.
Car parking is a nuisance (typical inner city) having to use the public carpark nearby (the guest price reduction helped a lot).
WIll stay again.

Ideally located in the heart of The Rocks in the historic section around Nurse's Walk and the Suez Canal and a short five minute walk to Circular Quay. Boutique style and wonderfully restored to maintain original stone work and timber beams. Scarlett's Restaurant offers friendly service with well presented meals and great service. Plenty of other restaurants and cafes in easy walking distance. No elevators but assistance is available from the responsive staff.

Room Tip: 2nd level suite.

A lovely, quaint hotel just 3 levels high. Warm, cosy setting with very friendly and attentive staff. We stayed 2 nights and loved the close proximity to restaurants and cafes, and the Circular Quay ferry and train terminals. The main attraction was being in the heart of The Rocks and all its history! There is a dummy waiter-like lift only for luggage so rooms are reached via stairs but that's all part of the experience :) Lots of people have evening drinks at the bar which doubles up as the reception (I know, sounds weird but it works here!).

Room Tip: We stayed in 221 and you can hear a nearby band in the daytime but it got pretty quiet at night so n...

we stayed here one night only as a stopover & it was a very pleasant experience.the rooms are very modern with everything there for you & good free toiletries aswell.The staff here are smartly dressed,well spoken,very polite & courteous .nothing was a problem here & everything was sorted for you.this hotel is not for groups but ideal for couples & families.there is lots of bars & eateries nearby.You are in 2 minutes walking distance from The Harbour Bridge & 5 minutes walk from the Opera house.the main shopping area is a 10 minute stroll away.i would recommend this hotel for that special occasion & would definetly stay here again.

This is one of my favourite hotels in the world. It's not particular cheap but is a great boutique hotel. The staff are friendly and exceptionally helpful. I used to go to this hotel whenever I was in Sydney on business but then my company made a rule that you had to stay in a Sheraton or Westin when on business. A great shame.

Ideally placed for the restaurants and bars on the Rocks and not far from Circular Quay.
