“Great Overnight Stay”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I was in Sydney on business and was recommneded to stay at the Harbour View. Carparking was cheap, certainly as Sydney parking goes. The staff were curtious and friendly. The view from my room of the harbour bridge and surrounding area was spectacular. Although there wasn't a restaurant, the room service had a decent menu, not too expensive and the food arrived promptly and was fair for the money. For a short stay overnight, the hotel is great. Located adjacent North Sydney railway station, and close to the city centre for car, taxi or bus. One downside for the light sleeper, you can certainly hear the trains on the second floor, but believe this deminishes as you stay higher up the building.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a harbour view, as high up as you can get.

We have had many visits to North Sydney Harbourview Hotel and have used it for family events, one night stopovers when travelling through Sydney, and as a base in Sydney with our overseas family when they visit. Our most recent visit was as a couple in December. We have stayed in a number of room configurations and every visit has been pleasure. The rooms are recently refurbished and although not large are perfectly comfortable. The extra big windows give a feeling of spaciousness. There are a couple King Suites on the top floor if you need the extra room. The bathrooms are compact but include great showers. The hotel is extremely convenient to the city, being next door to North Sydney station so travel time is only minutes to the CBD. It is also a short walk to Lavender Bay and Luna Park.

What really stands out for us are the views, the servce and the value for money. The views from most windows looking back on the Harbour Bridge and the City skyline from the North Sydney side are breathtaking. We have never taken any family member to this hotel without them being impressed. Most times we request a high floor and prefer near the centre of the hotel for the best view. Train noise has not bothered us even when we were on a lower floor, but that is a personal matter. The service is excellent. Claire in Reservations is a gem - always friendly and willing to help you choose the room that is best for each situation. I recommend booking directly with the hotel. All staff that we have dealt with are helpful and efficient and as return visitors there is always a nice card and gift in our room. Those little touches are pleasing. Value for money, particularly on the weekend nights is excellent. The Romancing With a View package is our favourite, including a great dinner and buffet breakfast in LBs and car parking. Check out the various packages on the website to find one that suits your personal situation and then ring and discuss directly with them. Join Viewpoints if you will stay regularly - we unfortunately didn't when we first stayed there so we will have to wait for some of those benefits.

We stayed here for one night recently and were so impressed with all aspects of this hotel that we booked again for Australia Day weekend.

The view of the harbour and bridge exceeded our expectations -- the room was clean, nicely decorated and there was a cold bottle of sparkly waiting for us -- all good so far.

A short walk up the street to some great shops where I picked up a few bargains - another tick !

Loved the window in the bathroom that you could look out to the harbour when seated if you wished ^^

Our package included a 3 course dinner which was first class and our window seat was lovely. Nice bottle of wine and great service.

Buffet breakfast had the usual hotel offerings -- but plenty of everything and most of all, it was served hot, not warm. Loved their stewed rhubarb....

A late checkout and easy parking included in the package = happy dayz ~

We have stayed at this hotel twice now, the first time was 2 years ago and we only stayed one night so we didn't really spend much time there. This time we had two nights and I really can't fault this place. I dealt direct with the hotel via e-mail and received excellent responses from the various reception staff who dealt with my questions. We had 2 family rooms and our rate included parking and breakfast which, having seen my 3 kids eat their own body weights in pancakes and eggs, was fabulous value for money. All of the staff we came into contact with were professional and friendly. Happy hour in the bar is also good value when drinks are just $3, it just means you get a bit of a shock when you go into a central sydney bar and the price is double or even triple that! The rooms family are also lovely and spacious. We had an extra rollaway bed in one room which usually means an uncomfortable camping style bed but this was a lovely comfy bed according to my 10 year old. The views are amazing and the location is perfect, away from the hustle and bustle of central Sydney but so easy to hop on a train and you're in Wynyard station in 5 mins. A tip not relating to the hotel is that on sundays families can purchase train/ferry/bus tickets for $2.50 and you can use them all day, amazing value.
If i ever visit sydney again I would stay here for sure!

I stayed there for two nights. The view from the room on the 6th floor was devine, I assume the higher the better it gets. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Has a good loyalty program If travelling to Sydney regularly for work. The breakfast was very good. The restuarant was also very good and great service in the bar area. Good work by all staff. The only negative is that it us built on top of a train station, so at the bottom level it is a bit noisy. Close to airport.

Room Tip: Ask for a room - level 10 or above

Stayed here one night - and was out the door by 6 a.m. But got a good night's sleep. Easy walk to Harbour Bridge and over to the Rocks. Nice, comfortable, modern, clean, convenient. Had a lovely view of the bridge and downtown Syndey. My local business associate who made the reservation uses this hotel frequently, and she spoke very highly of its service, plus the fact that it is well-located for getting out of the city easily by motorway.

We stay here every Christmas for a few days to catch up with friends and relatives in Sydney.
We always get a nice welcome and the service is good, the beds superb and the rooms clean and comfortable, and of course the views are spectacular! We usually call the hotel direct and take a "package" which includes breakfast, parking and accommodation. The location is very convenient and close to trains and ferries, should we want to go into the city or Manly or where ever. Kirribilli, a short walk away, has some nice little boutique restaurants, which are reasonably priced for lunches or dinners. Always a very pleasant stay in Sydney.
