Reviewed 3 September 2013

I have stayed at the Harbour Rocks many times over the years but I am extremely impressed with the changes that have been made over recent times.

The service, ambience, staff, accommodation and location could not be faulted on our recent stay.

Unfortunately, we only had one night to indulge in all the amenities on offer but will definitely be back for more in the very near future.

Harbour Rocks Hotel is very well located - walkable to many Sydney points of interest. Rooms are small but well-designed and charming. Ana at the front desk absolutely made our stay though - anything we hatched up she took care of gracefully and thoughtfully - from dinner to massage to a kayak trip. We felt so well taken care of!

Beautiful hotel and great location. However we had a very noisy room overlooking the courtyard, meaning there was no relaxing time when we were done venturing the city. A standard room it is just a bit too small for two people.

I enjoyed this hotel and the view from my rooftop room was beautiful with the opera house in sight. It's an old building, I believe over 100 years old so if you are looking for ultra modern I recommend a different hotel. I like both type of hotels but will stay here again.

There is no question this is a delightful, well located, high grade hotel. Located in the delightful Rocks area, it is a stones throw to all that area offers whether the shopping on George Street, a stroll up to the Harbour Bridge or a look around the Rocks Discovery Museum to learn how this area being the mainstay of Sydney settlers was saved from demolition and the story of the Aboriginal history. However, while room 106 which I occupied is well furnished! It sits behind a bookshelf opposite the reception, bar and lobby, next to public toilets and the office. I'm a very frequent traveller but never really settled in the room given the extent of noise that can travel. I should not be conscious in my room of avoiding noise travelling to a public area or be concerned about external noise. There's an open atrium above the lobby and I imagine first floor rooms around that must also hear what's going on. Ok in the quieter winter months perhaps but I suspect a different story in the summer. Breakfast was excellent but on the first morning, when I decided I would like to take up the offer advertised on the reception but not mentioned on check in, I was told it was only available on check in. However we got round that but it's a bit of a pointless rule. Tell folk at the time or be flexible. The room was well priced for Sydney, great location but a little uncomfortable niggle or two.

Room Tip: Be careful on room selection and if you want an admittedly excellent breakfast! As about it on check...

Stayed 2 nights on business, the reception staff were great on check in, I was lucky to get a room on the upper floor with views of the bridge and opera house, the rooms are small but very well laid out, the restaurant offers good value and quality food. as this is a boutique hotel it comes with features some will love and some will not ie small bathroom, if you have more than a couple of items you wish to use you will have to leave them in the bedroom, there is no lift (only 2 floors up), but luggage will be carried to you room if required, all this is made up for by a massive amounts of charm rarely found these days in modern hotels. the gym is small but functional or you can take to the outdoors and walk to the opera house or over the harbour bridge. this hotel want be for everyone but it certainly was for me.

Room Tip: I had room 305 which had a great view
