Bridgeclimb

A weekend away for mother and daughter, did the bridgeclimb and went to Darling harbour and Circular Quay. Enjoyin g the beautiful restaurants and went to The Opera House. The Hotel Inn is a beautiful place and staff are very friendly and helpful, but the bed was so uncomfortable, we both suffered bad backs after sleeping there. We enjoyed the spa and pool a beautiful area looking over the magnificent view of The Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, and was so relaxing.

Excellent location for family stay

We always stay here when we take our grandchildren to Sydney to look at the shops as it has the most comfortable rooms with excellent rooftop pool surrounded by great views and wonderful eateries. This part of the city is always alive and open so no problems obtaining reasonable food at any time.

Perfect place to stay if doing the bridge climb

Great location if your going on the bridge climb, breakfast was fantastic, only there was no parking in hotel, it was full, I thought it was supposed to be for guests only, my husband went around in circles trying to find parking. We have never had a problem in any other hotels, also the rooms need to be aired out, it has an old smell, not nice at all

Family Gathering

Being the 5th time I have stayed here, I can thoroughly recommend the facility. The location is fantastic, so close to a variety of markets, restaurants, hotels and of course the Quay with buskers, cafes, food outlets, ferries and trains. Views from the rooftop pool are exceptional - the iconic harbour bridge to the left and opera house opposite, with ferries, water taxis, tall ships and tugs sailing by - especially when the skies are blue and sun shining on the water of the harbour. Wonderful to see the arrival and departure of the huge passenger ships that dock at the pier. The foyer area is most welcoming, with a lovely lounge/bar area available for relaxing. Rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. Staff are to be commended for their very friendly and efficient manner - extremely helpful. Family members who had not previously stayed were totally satisfied with all aspects. Will definitely be returning!

Perfect Sydney location

The polite and very helpful staff made this one of the most enjoyable hotel experiences I have had. Our room had views of the city and Opera House and was very comfortable. Perfect for our overnight Sydney experience with a huge choice of restaurants, bars and cafes all within a short stroll.

Ideal Weekend Getaway

This hotel is located in the Rocks area of Sydney , park your car and you can walk to all that this part of the city has to offer with great eateries just a stroll away, the rooms are compact but adequate , the staff are very helpful and friendly. Make sure you get the location of their subsidised parking station correct otherwise it could prove costly.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

leave your vehicle in the parking station and walk or use public transport taxi rank at hotel front door parking and traffic in Sydney is a nightmare.
