We stayed here for just one night prior to cruise out of Circular Quay. We were given a room on the 8th floor near the back of the hotel which gave us a partial view of the Harbour Bridge. The room turned out to be very small considering the price we paid for a one night stay. Food and drinks...

The rooftop pool has a fantastic view of the Opera House and Harbor Bridge! But mainly at night as every day cruise ships block the view of the Opera House. But it was great to be out there at night! Great staff! Delicious food in their restaurant!

The staff was amazing and we were very impressed with the location. Mary, at the front desk was very welcoming. She is an excellent person...

Lovely warm pool on the roof (view of bridge) of the building with good views of the opera house. Excellent breakfast buffet on offer, with an egg chef. Well located in the rocks with a selection of...

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
