Hotel Palisade was a bit of a gamble for me, I more often stay in well known places or places I have been before. I do love history however and this pub was built in 1915 and reopened in 2015 after award winning renovations. It has character and charm, is beautifully clean and well located with quick easy walk to...

Great old pub restored to its original glory. Wide variety of beers served with a smile. Sensational lunchtime meal in the quiet bar area on the ground floor. But take the elevator upstairs to catch 360 degree views of the city and surrounds. Could be Sydney's best kept secret !

First time visitors to this hotel and greeted by security at the front entrance who was very polite and accommodating. Proceeded to level four for drinks where bar staff could not be more helpful. Very friendly with outstanding customer service and made our evening a real treat. The barman was an absolute gentleman. Wife & I very impressed and will...

From a derelict and dangerous building to a thriving and lively hotel, this is not to be missed. Its like stepping back in time, but with plenty of contemporary touches. The rooftop area has a great view and has plenty of life.

Lunch and an ale at the Palisade. Enjoy fabulous views delicious food with a refreshing ale at this historic location. Take the elevator to the top floor for open air comfort with majestic views of the Rocks, Harbour Bridge, Barangaroo and Pyrmont.

We decided on the spur of the moment to go to the top floor of this pub. Secured a parking spot nearby as a bonus. Perched ourselves at the bar and started a very pleasant two hours. Beers and then cocktails were a heap of fun. Chatted to the barman as he worked which led us into conversation about gin....

I just left the Palisade Hotel top floor as I was told we could not wear gym shoes or hats. I would not have minded but noted that 95 percent of people were wearing gym boots or thongs. There were even a number of men with hats on. The hat I had on was an expensive black felt hat fit...

Drinks on the top bar followed by dinner downstairs. Great view, limited seating due to the crowd. $48.00 for 2 beers (bottled) and 2 Proseccos. Won't be going back at those prices. Restaurant downstairs leaves a lot to be desired re: fit out and ambience. view only of walls with small tables and old chairs. Food good quality.

My partner and I stayed in the Alice Muskett room. After reading reviews on TripAdvisor I expected it to be very small, which is very true. There is also no air conditioning which makes it that tiny less comfortable/luxurious, but this is because it is a heritage listed building. In saying this, the room had beautiful decor and they made...

I had our work Christmas party in The Linnean, a private function room. It was a perfect intimate room with private balcony, for our small group of 18. Finger food was good and views and atmosphere fantastic. We stayed the night in the 8 room boutique hotel. The Standard rooms are tiny but beautifully restored and presented with all mod...
