“Great location boutique hotel”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

If you don't mind a small bathroom, the Harbour Rocks is in a superb location and has the unique charms of a beautiful boutique hotel. Breakfast in their restaurant Stella is excellent, and dinner there was great as well. Very cool lobby bar that's not your typical lobby bar b

We have stayed at this hotel before. They don't have all the facilities that the larger hotels have but they have enough. We were in a very nice room this time. It was lovely and big.
We do find the check in desk a bit strange as it doubles as a bar with the check in at one end and the rest of it as a bar. It has been busy when we arrive and we found it a bit disconcerting.

What a fabulous boutique hotel. Friendly and efficient staff, helpful and very professional. My lunch at the Scarlett restaurant was delicious and, again, great staff and service. Tastefully decorated throughout and very comfortable room. The Terrace was a lovely place to relax, enjoy a drink or coffee and take in the atmosphere of The Rocks. Excellent location. My stay was thoroughly enjoyable and I would recommend the Harbour Rocks Hotel to all and sundry! Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room.

I stayed at The Harbour Rocks for a business trip, on recommendation. This is definitely a great boutique hotel which is a short walk from just about everything. The interior decor is striking as you walk in. The staff here were very friendly and personable, offering suggestions on eateries and bars. On the first night of my stay there was a function in the courtyard below (the courtyard is enveloped by rooms and you can look down from upper floors). A complimentary bottle of wine was waiting in the room to apologise- but I was personally uninterrupted from any noise. The hotel has a great charm about it. On subsequent nights we had drinks by the lobby couches and then the courtyard, a lovely setting. The rooms are a standard size and have all the essentials. I would stay here again.

Have stayed at this property twice in the past week, one night in room 214 and another in 401. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of The Rocks, walking distance to the Opera House and many fine restaurants. Room rate competitive, great value. The hotel is nostalgic, charming, homely, warm and friendly. The property has a history originally as the site of a hospital and more recently a warehouse. Check in for both stays was seamless and to my surprise on both nights my room had been automatically upgraded. As a Le Club card holder I received a welcome drink in the hotel's quaint little bar "Eric's" which was lovely. My rooms for both stays were faultless. Modern, cozy, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Everything worked, good shower pressure, comfortable bed, well stocked mini bar. Faultless. Late check out - not an issue. Overall a wonderful experience. Will definitely return.

From the time we checked in until the time we checked out, we loved the hotel.

We were fortunate to be upgraded and had a lovely room, spotlessly clean and it was kept that way during the six nights we were there.

We were in Sydney to attend a conference so after a long day it was lovely to relax in the bar with a glass of wine The wine list is small but a wide choice of varieties is available.

Most nights we ate in the restaurant. The food was wonderful the staff attentive and friendly

We had the most comfortable bed and enjoyed the best night sleep we have had whilst staying in a hotel.

The fitness centre was small but had enough equipment to do a reasonable workout. We used it once but as the weather was so lovely we decided that a walk each morning was the better option as the Opera house, Harbour Bridge and the city centre are really close by and very accessible.

We will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on the second or third floor, they are away from the restaurant, fitness cent...
