This is the second time I have stayed at Simpsons in the last 6 months. It is a great location in a quiet residential street with heaps of restaurants within a short walk. The waterfront is close by and it is an easy 20 minute walk to to the city. A beautiful heritage building provides you with a very pleasant... More

About 15min walk to the royal botanical gardens and a few minutes more to the opera house / circular quay. The hotel was situated in an idyllic old australian heritage site... More

Very much the location and the place to stay, I thought, in Sydney. Close to the city and park, but set back and private. We have stayed in the main house as well as in the smallish rooms/apartments off to the side of the main location. I was disappointed that we would be staying away from the main location, but...

Great hotel, really lovely old fashioned and with genuine period piece furnishings. The sitting room was beautiful with period couches, chairs bookcases and a fireplace. Our guest room was cosy and comfortable with a good bathroom. There are no lifts so you must be fit enough for stairs if on the upper floors. Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast room was... More
