Harbour Rocks Hotel Sydney - MGallery Collection

Reviewed October 23, 2013

This attractive hotel is situated on a charming street just a few minutes walk uphill from Circular Quay. It was about 36 degrees when I arrived but the room aircon had been adjusted to a perfect temperature. The staff were very friendly, efficient and accessible. Built in 1887, the former bond store has pedigree and its lovely bones have been cleverly renovated to expose sandstone and brick. Natural timbers, textured fabrics and earthy tones all used to great effect. My chic modern room on the third floor (301) was very quiet with a full size bath. I was delighted to be able to select a pillow from the pillow menu for a great night’s sleep. I will definitely be back as the hotel is unique, charming and a great alternative to your more corporate-style hotels.

Tremendous character in this hotel, coupled with genuine customer service. It’s a gem of a hotel in a really nice part of Sydney. We have been to Sydney several times but this place is unique among the big brand names & their generic, bland styles.

Customer service was excellent and the hotel facilities more than adequate. The restaurant serves quality meals at the price point. Very enjoyable.

It is a city centre hotel in a tourist area so there is going to be noise and some hustle & bustle so do your research well. As for us, we will certainly stay again if we come to Sydney.

I have stayed here twice now and will definitely be coming back. It's a great little boutique hotel, with character within walking distance to city, ferries and restaurants. Staff are also very friendly. I'd highly recommend purchasing breakfast voucher at checkin as its great value.

LOVED this hotel! Stayed 3 nights with 17 y.o. daughter for a weekend of sightseeing and shopping. Location was perfect for all we wanted to do and the ambience of The Rocks area was really special. Hotel staff were excellent, very attentive. Nothing was too much trouble, even hunting down some tape for my blistered feet! We had a superior twin room (room 220) at the rear of the hotel on the first floor. Very niced size room. Bathroom was a little small but the shower pressure and hot water made up for it. Didn't have any trouble sleeping, and I'm a light sleeper! The only noise was from a wedding in the function room on the Saturday night, but what can you do about that. Beds were extremely comfy, especially the pillows. Will definitely recommend, and hopefully stay again.

Room Tip: we found the rooms do vary as we had 4 rooms, ground floor a little noisy at time but not unbearable...

This hotel is in a wonderful location, however, the staff need to be friendlier and more helpful. I felt the girl in the restaurant at breakfast time needed more training and to advise the options available.
I couldn't fault the hotel itself except the windows don't open to allow any fresh air.
