Brilliant boutique hotel in Potts Point Sydney. Homely, efficient, superb service, lovely rooms and great breakfast. Very convenient location for setting out on foot to discover Sydney. You could not ask for a better beginning and end of your day touring Sydney.

Great location and wonderful food venues within walking distance makes Simpsons my choice whenever I stay in Sydney. Simpsons offer an elegant alternative to most hotels and the comfort and hospitality of the staff and owners make you want to return every time.

We were offered an upgrade but the original booked room was far more to our liking. The upgrade room had a leaking tap that I found needed more strength than I had to turn off and the original room was lighter and bigger, just up a level so more walking, or should I say climbing.

Our room was elegant, comfortable, and quiet. The owners were friendly and very very helpful. There is also a lovely, large front room where one could sip sherry, play chess, or read, and a fresh, well stocked continental breakfast is served in a quiet breakfast room at the back of the hotel.

Hello Jessica T. Thank you for your Review. Yes, Potts Point is an historic Art Deco area, with a smattering of much earlier Georgian and Victorian buildings. Many grand mansions have been lost to the "Developers Wrecking Ball", but fortunately a large number have survived, including "Simpsons", which was built in 1892, in the then new "Arts and Crafts" style,...
