It has been a long and hot travelling day for me. Bridget at the check-in turned my day around. She worked tirelessly to have my lovely room ready. The view from my room is stunning and very comfortable. As it was a scorching day in Sydney, I spent much of my time in the room. Perfectly located, lovely hotel in Sydney.

This hotel is not a 4.5/5 star establishment. The rooms are small which means cramped. We stayed for 2 nights and on day 2 were tempted to check out. Eric's bar is advertised as "Sophisticated, private, welcoming and beautiful, Eric's Bar is designed especially for you". It is none of these, it is an extension of the reception desk, it is not private or beautiful. Basically it's a dump. The only part of this hotel that has a 4.5/5 star rating is the Creperie Suzette, wonderful staff and food. When I booked this hotel I checked out the dining options and basically it only had a $60 pp two course menu that did not attract the AccorPlus dining benefit. So I booked us into the Pullman Grand at East Circular Quay. When we checked in at the Rocks there was a menu which showed small plates $15 and large plates $35 and I asked the receptionist if that was available because the website said it wasn't. She said yes it is things had changed and they had reintroduced the A La Carte menu with 50% Accor dining benefit. So I said good book us in for dinner on Friday 27/11 and I cancelled the Pullman reservation. Lo and behold got to the Restaurant, Tayim and they only had the fixed menu. I complained to no avail, the receptionist came down and told me she couldn't find any menu like the one I saw and said there must have been a miscommunication. This was a blatant lie. I have a photo of the menu which I took from the Hotel Information displayed on the in room TV. Ended up having Hungry Jacks on a bench at Circular Quay. Another couple of things was no pen and paper in the room, I didn't receive 2 bottles of water until I mentioned it at checkout, Free WiFi?? No mention of that no sign in information on the room key or in the room. It also wouldn't hurt to actually publish the fact that you don't have a lift rather than waiting till people to check in and then telling them. In the morning there was a foul smell coming from the aircon.

Great two night stay. Perfect location. Front desk service was fantastic. Great bed, good sized room (we stayed in the suite). Shame the restaurant isn’t open on Sunday nights. Didn’t matter, plenty of places nearby. Thanks for a great stay.

My wife and I had a great two-night stay here on a Friday and Saturday night. The hotel has a great heritage ambience to it despite being modernised. The King Studio Suite to which we were upgraded free of charge was very nice without being particularly large. The room was clean but lacking a few of the niceties such as mini-bar and shower cap. We do understand that these things are not standard these days under COVID conditions. There was also very little room in the bathroom for setting out our bathroom items. We had breakfasts and one dinner at the on-site Tayim middle eastern restaurant and enjoyed the meals. The “3 glasses of wine from Lebanon” we chose to accompany our dinner were different and great. However, the desk service was quite slow. It seems that the staff (more than one) struggled finding details on the computer and didn’t seem to have the checking in, checking out, and other processes sorted. Having checked in online ended up being useless but again that might just be COVID. Our complimentary bottle of wine was not in the room when we arrived and despite being told it would be sent up, we had to go get it ourselves later. The hotel is in a fantastic location at The Rocks in Sydney and although others have complained about party noise, we really didn’t hear that much and slept well. The local hotels, cafes, and restaurants were buzzing the whole time we were there which was a great atmosphere but restricted where you could get in at short notice. Nice stay, but Accor really don’t have their act together at all. We are Accor Plus members and have had various problems with service levels over the past year or so.

We booked a night as a staycation at Harbour Rocks hotel. The staff are amazing, Moss the night manager provided excellent service! The room is beautiful with that subtle elegance and class that you gain from The Rocks. I highly recommend this for a couples night in the city, I will definitely be back!!
