Matt,Chris,Emily and the rest of the staff made our stay in Sydney hassle free and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.
We will stay here again and tell all our friends and work colleagues to do so as well.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Whilst the staff are friendly and helpful, the location excellent and common areas stylish, we found our room to be very basic and the bathroom poor. We stayed six nights, booked via our travel agent, and I feel that this was part of the problem, being assigned an internal facing room with no soundproofing. Perhaps had we booked directly with the hotel we may have received better service and value for money. We could hear all the noise from people in the courtyard and also had an intermittent and regular noise that did not appear to be connected to the air con, but kept us both awake, every night, resulting in the worst sleep in Australia! We spoke to staff twice about this but no one appeared interested or willing to look into the source of the noise. The bathroom tried to be industrial but was dated and done on the cheap - even the washbasin pedestal was not square and there were holes in tiles in the shower and bathroom where items had been mis-fitted and moved, with no subsequent attempt to fill the holes. Towels were grey and poor quality and on our first night one was stained with black marks. The toilet seat was cheap and bent when sat on and there was dirt behind the bathroom door that, after 3 days, I cleaned up myself! Three times we had to either ask for the room to be made up or for supplies to be restocked: this should not be necessary in a hotel that aspires to boutique status, and I can only suggest that the owners look at several European boutique hotels for inspiration: Jules et Jim in Paris, Relais Julia in Rome, Porte Leone in Verona or Hotel Indigo, Tower Hill, London. We have stayed in all in the past 18 months and they are excellent in very different ways and push all the buttons that The Harbour Rocks just seems to miss. We were so looking forward to staying here having read reviews and been recommended by our travel agent, but felt let down and very disappointed at the value for money.
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay Skippy.

I can assure you this information goes a long way to assisting me in improving services for future guests. I apologise if the overall comfort and enjoyment of your stay in was impacted by the shortfalls you have highlighted above.
If you are ever looking to stay in Sydney again, don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
Thanks again for taking the time to review your stay.
Harbour Rocks is a great place to stay in the center of the old part of Sydney. The service is excellent and the room was comfortable with a beautifull view of the Sydney Opera House. We enjoied the breakfast very much and there is a nice little terrasse to sit and have an afternoon coffee or tea. This is a place I want to return to.
Thanks for your wonderful review!
You are right in saying, we are in top location down in The Rocks. I will be sure to pass on the feedback in regards to the service you received from our team. I’m glad to hear you were able to enjoy breakfast down in Scarlett restaurant!
We can’t wait to welcome you back.
There is an industrial feel to the interior décor but nothing cold or wanting in the provision of the accommodation. The hotel is ideally sited and from our room you could see the Opera House when the cruise liner left! The room had all that was needed including a docking system for the iphone 5 The staff ensured you had all that was required. There are restaurants and eateries nearby which are also listed on trip advisor
I appreciate the time you have taken to review your stay!
I’m glad to hear you were able to make use of the rooms facilities and that you were able to get a peak of the Opera House once the cruise liner left! I hope you had time to try a few of the wonderful restaurants located near by!
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
