The Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel proved to be an ideal place for us to spend Dec. 23rd and Christmas Eve. 2011. It is located in the historic "Rocks" of Sydney, AU., and is within walking distance of Circular Quay, Darling Harbor, Chinatown, and most of the CBD. Registration takes place on the second floor where the restaurant is also located. The rooms are up yet another two levels.
Our four bags were generously toted up the stairs (there is no lift) by two very willing young lads. We enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfasts both mornings. A cooked breakfast was available for purchase as well. On Christmas morning we were offered a complimentary glass of champagne, but since we were facing a long flight to Los Angeles, we declined.
Our second story room was charming and comfortable, with exposed rock walls and shuttered windows that looked out over the street. There was a small refrigerator to keep our wine cool. We thoroughly enjoyed the pub on the street level, all though it was difficult to have a private conversation due to the volume of the general conversations of the wall to wall crowd of patrons. The staff in general was very friendly and most accommodating. We were a bit surprised at the price of two pints of their beer ($17.80 au), but it was conveniently added to our hotel bill. Since the Lord Nelson is located in a residential area, the pub closes around 11 pm. so getting to sleep in the rooms is not a problem.
We would highly recommend the Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel as a good alternative to the high priced high rise hotels in Sydney.
