We stayed at the hotel for a week. It is in a great position for all the sights of Sydney. However, it is in a very noisy area (extractor fans, air conditioning and traffic to name but a few. Sadly there is no double glazing (not in keeping with the building I guess) so if you are a light sleeper this probably not the place for you. That said, sleep deprivation aside we really enjoyed the hotel and its origins.

Was in Sydney twice, at the beginning and end of a larger trip to Australia. Ended up cancelling my planned hotel for the second stay after visiting The Rocks on the first stay. Booked into a Rocks hotel and increased the enjoyment factor by a bunch!

Recommended tor everyone.

We chose this hotel as it was right in the centre of the historical Rocks, & it didn't disappoint. We were worried it might be a little noisy, but no such trouble & we were lucky to have a small view of the Opera House (when the cruise ship had sailed for the day).

Our room was lovely with a comfortable bed. Slightly lacking in cupboard space if you wanted to unpack, but bright, good air con & nice. The bathroom was functional-had everything required & clean, but unimaginatively standard white & compared to the rest of the beautifully restored building, not quite up to the mark (although had nice comp toiletries).

We only had breakfast once in the hotel. It was good and as expected from a hotel of this calibre, but we enjoyed venturing out to the many individual cafes to be found in the locale for brekkie.

All in all, great & would def return.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Heritage Superior.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a long weekend away in October. We found the hotel by accident when we were walking around the Rocks one afternoon and went in for a few drinks. It is a lovely old building from the outside but has been done up on the inside and is very easy on the eye. The bar is facing the street so you can just walk in and your in the hotel. The service was very friendly so we decided to stay when we next had a weekend free. We booked online through wotif and found the price a bit high but all hotels in the Rocks were. We were there for the long weekend and found the Rocks to be very busy and lots happening. There were markets on the Friday Saturday and Sunday and by night all the pubs and bars were full. We were never short of anything to do even catching a ferry over to Manly, only my second time. We found everything to be five minutes away so we found the hotel to be in a great location. The bar even has happy hour so we drank there before heading out and the staff were nice. We love the Rocks and will be back as soon as the prices go down or we can afford it, which ever comes first.

We visited Sydney mid-October and the HRH turned out to b a wonderful choice. After an overnight flight from the States we were lucky enough to have our room available upon arrival.

The historic designation for the building does present some challenges when providing a modern hotel experience but I think the HRH was very well done (no lift, so if you are on the upper floor be ready for a few stairs.) There is a luggage lift though which helps with check-in/check-out.

Our room was small but very well appointed and comfortable. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom, while compact, did deliver. The shower was surprisingly roomy and had a great rain spout shower head. The only issue was the small shelf over the sink. I konked my head on it at first but then adjusted. Ouch.

Great staff, very helpful! Breakfast was also extremely satisfying.

The location cannot be beat either. An easy walk to the Circular Quay, Opera House, Harbor Bridge and surrounding establishments (The Glenmore, Pony, Le Renaissance Patisserie, etc.) Weekend events in the surrounding area also made for an exciting stay (street vendors and food). Easy access to ferries and public transportation to see other city sights and excursions.

Stayed 4 nights for part business part holiday. Very clean, comfortable and great service. Excellent Rocks location, close to everything including transport, food, entertainment. Good in-house food and bar. Standard rooms are very compact but adequate. Friendly and very helpful staff.
You need to like stairs, there's no lift.
