This has to be the best location to stay if you are visiting the Opera House, or want to enjoy the old area of Sydney called the rocks.
The hotel is more expensive than others in the area, but after staying in several others, this remains my favorite.
Take care that the 'Eastern Harbour View' rooms don't give you a view of the Opera House or Sydney Harbour Bridge. Instead you will be looking out over Garden Island, towards the ocean. Still a great view, but when visiting Sydney, I feel it is worth that little bit extra to enjoy the views of the Bridge and Opera House.
The staff as always are friendly, polite, and will go out of their way to help.
The only reason I didn't rate as excellent this visit is the frustration of a blocked toilet, which although fixed within an hour, detracted somewhat from an otherwise romantic weekend.More
