We had a delightful stay at Simpsons of Potts Point Hotel, and have enjoyed returning to what must be the most intimate and charming small Hotel in this exclusive suburb. The setting is quite enchanting, and is well placed for public transport nearby. Breakfast is always a wonderful start to the day, with a large spread. Keith, Marie and Ree are wonderful hosts, and nothing is too hard for them when assisting their guests. “Simpsons” is our ‘go to’ place whenever we visit Sydney.

Room tip: Old style splendour at it's best.

Hello Franke 787 !

What thoughtful words!

We are very pleased to hear that you have become regulars.

Thankyou for expressing your kind opinion. And yes, i cannot but agree that our healthy breakfast buffet is a great start to the day. Marie's homemade rhubarb and apple compote is especially popular.

We look forward to seeing you on another occasion.

Cheers Keith and the "Simpsons team"

Good morning Cheadleblade !

Thanks for your kind words.

Yes, that walk to the Opera House, along the harbour front and through the Royal Botanic Gardens, must be amongst the most scenic urban walks in the world. My wife and I never tire of it. We can do the round-trip in under one hour.

Glad that you enjoyed your time at Simpsons.

Cheers Keith and the Simpsons Team.

The location of the property is excellent, close to cafes and restaurants and great harbour walks. At check in we weren't welcomed as we would have liked but thankfully the other two male managers of the property made up for this and were warm and friendly.

Hello Pace !

Thankyou for Review and your 4-star rating.

However, I am sorry that apparently you were not welcomed as you should have been.

Without knowing the circumstances, I cannot really comment further, other than to say that we do pride ourselves on trying to offer a friendly and welcoming approach, and I am sorry if we fell down on this occasion.

Thankyou for bringing it to our attention, and we shall try harder next time.

Cheers Keith and the Simpsons Team

The accomodation is extremely accomodating. The hotel is a beautiful old manor, very clean, very spacious and cozy. The staff are super friendly and the location is extremely convenient to all major tourist attractions around Sydney harbour.

Thanks Ruben.

Yes, Potts Point is a very convenient situation.

Far enough from the hustle and bustle of the City, yet close enough to walk to all the major attractions.

It has become one of the most sought after locations in Sydney, and has an amazing number of excellent restaurants, cafes and little bars.

Thankyou for your review.

Cheers Keith and the "Simpsons Team" !

I found Potts Point Hotel online and as soon as saw pictures of the interior, I knew it would be a good place to stay. Set in a quiet street this old colonial property is beautifully furnished and extremely welcoming. The room I stayed in was cosy but with a spacious bathroom, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities with a greater choice than usual. Continental breakfast was sumptuous and the team running the hotel friendly and helpful. A nice touch was a decanter of port left in the drawing room for a nightcap. A bonus was the location of the hotel away from the hustle but close enough to walk to the Harbour and with two excellent restaurants only a few minutes walk away and King's Cross round the corner. I would love to return.

Hello Ricahrd !

Thanks for that insightful review.

Yes, Simpsons is a little hidden gem, an oasis in an exciting, eclectic neighbourhood.

An "Olde Worlde" mansion house, but with all the creature comforts and conveniences.

I am glad that you found our team friendly and helpful. That is certainly our aim.

Thanks for taking the time to review us.

Cheers Keith and the "Simpsons Team" !
