“Pier One, Sydney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Stayed here for four nights.
Slightly away from the bustle of the Rocks, but right under the Harbour Bridge on converted finger wharf.
No pool and nowhere to take the sun but well equipped gym.
Breakfast excellent at extra charge.
Air conditioning not working first night - pretty torrid in summer heat - but bill adjusted without objection. Wifi expensive (but free for diners!)
Choose a room with either a balcony or French windows on to quay - otherwise rooms tend to be claustrophobic.
A good experience and added value to be able to watch harbour traffic during breakfast and fishermen on wharf opposite.

I think everyone has said it before but WOW what a view. so close to everything. but none of that noisy city feel. Staff were very friendly and helpful when we arrived. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. Food was great and with a view of the harbour, what more could you ask for! what recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

I really liked this hotel. The staff were very friendly and the location is awesome. We were able to walk around to Circular Quay and the Rocks. The wharf was a great place for drinks, dinner and breakfast. We did all three and dinner was excellent. The room was very nice,nothing amazing but the sheets were good quality as were the provided bathroom amenities. The view was fantastic!. Nice quite location out of the hustle and bustle of Sydney.

The view from many of the rooms, and the lobby and resturant was wonderful, and being situted on the wharf, was an easy stroll to the harbour bridge and rocks area.Breakfast was delightful and enjoyed sitting on the harbourside. Although we had an initial issue with one room, we were quickly upgraded to an alternate room with no fuss and our check out time extended. Staff were obliging, polite and helpful. My only criticism would be the valet parking. We had a show booked for 9pm and had requested the car at 830 - it was 915 before the car was delivered. Again on checking out the next morning, the car was significantly delayed. My tip is to order the car at least an hour earlier than required!
Overall very pleased with the motel and would gladly stay there again!

This hotel is well located with views of the Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Luna Park and Opera House only a few steps away. More importantly for us, we could take our dog, Bonnie for the night. She was provided with a bed, a couple of plastic bags and a small packet of liver treats on entry to our room. She was allowed to be with us in the bar area inside the hotel and at our table on the pier for breakfast. The staff were most tolerant and accepting of our hairy Golden Retriever and their service throughout was excellent - nothing too much trouble. Following a delicious Christmas Day lunch in the hotel, we arranged for the Bonnie to arrive at the hotel after check in. She was allowed at the check in counter too. Rooms which are dog friendly are on the ground floor along one wing of the complex. Rooms are small by the time you have a large human, pet bed alongside and chest of drawers but adequate. The bathroom is spacious. One slight hitch is that as your room is on a walkway along a pier, you can not really sleep with your blind or window open so have to sleep in the air conditioning (summer). We did open the door for fresh air in the early hours of the morning but for security probably not wise to sleep all night with door open. Would have perhaps liked to have seen a little more information in the room re pet rules, a map of where we could find grassed areas, (we knew the area so were fine but for out of towners), and a list of nearby restaurants that allow dogs to sit outside would be useful.
We would recommend this hotel for you and your pet but be aware, the dog can not be left in the room alone - "baby sitting" can be arranged at a cost. Book directly with the hotel for clear instructions - the phone reservation system let us down.
