This is just the best place to stay if you are visiting sydney. Located in Potts Pony, away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, within walking distance to Restaurants, Art Gallery, Botanical Gardens, and if you are up to it, a 20 minute walk to David Jones! Lovely charming old world ambiance, with very comfortable rooms and beds. Good...

Recently I took my mother to Sydney and as a surprise for her booked us into this fantastic, classy heritage hotel. From our first correspondence the experience was a pleasure.

Great location and wonderful food venues within walking distance makes Simpsons my choice whenever I stay in Sydney.

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. The stairs are a but...
