    The Rocks
    The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
    sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
    neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
    streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
    buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
    Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
    “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
    waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

    Hi Wendy, you are not permitted to smoke inside any of our rooms. Our private rooftop terrace is a designated smoking area, or you can smoke outside the building in Globe Lane or on George Street. Thanks!
