Nice location and good solid food. Only the service sucks by showing the absolute no care factor. It is one of those places where the guests seems to be the least important factor and the best thing that works is the till.

Visited today for lunch at the hotel's restaurant overlooking Sydney harbour. Can access this restaurant by driving to Watsons Bay (fairly good parking) or by ferry from Circular Quay. Tables very clean and staff very polite. Have to place your order at the bar where you are given a gizmo that will bleep when your meal is ready for collection...

Was lucky enough to visit this establishment with the inlaws last Sunday for the first time// very impressive the location the building and the food. The atmosphere was very casual with a very impressive view over Sydney Harbor to take in whilst enjoying a good beer and great food

Stayed over Xmas period. Only 10min drive from CBD but offers very peaceful location. Amazing views wedged between Sydney Harbour & South Head. Plenty things to do around area including swimming, walking along the cliff top walk or relaxing in the park. Rooms are clean and very homely.

Lovely newly renovated hotel with lovely outlook over the bay. A little noisy on the first floor but stops around midnight so to be expected in a pub . Food in the outdoor eatery was fast and really nice. We watched a beautiful sunset . Really good atmosphere . Room was clean and nice.

We had a one night stay with our daughter's family following a wedding reception at the venue. My daughter booked the Loft Room for the 5 of them, and my husband & I had a standard room. Both rooms were well presented with KS beds, quality linen, towels & toiletries. The Loft room had 2 single beds in the loft....

All the staff are helpful and work to deliver a top quality stay. The beach at watsons bay isn't the nicest but camp cove a short walk is ideal for everyone. Every night the bar area is busy so book a table and sample the great food they have on offer.

The worst place I have been in Australia. Non-existent service complimented by awful food. What's worse than awful food? Cold food. What's worse than cold food?

I live nearby so this is my local go-to for drinks, early supper with kids, coffee take out and weekend eats. It's always crowded and noisy when the sun comes out, filled with Sydney's young and beautiful, but weekday evenings and grey days are calmer. Good daily specials, decent breakfast and great coffee out front. For a bit of quiet,...

Visiting Sydney and family, we took to ferry to Watsons Bay and decided to have lunch at the WBH. Holiday time and the area was crowded and understandably it was difficult to find a seat. The fish and chips were excellent but the Pims my daughter ordered was a watered down version, very poor.
