“A gracious sanctuary admist the eclectic urbane mix of Potts Point”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

Staying at Simpson's is a most calming, gracious and elegant retreat from the wonderfully diverse village that is Potts Point. With an easy stroll to the harbour and the city, Simpson's is a wonderful hotel in which to base yourself, yet be close at hand to all the very best that Sydney has to offer. From the soothing music to the elegant lounge and well-appointed rooms and suites, Simpson's has refinement and class, yet one feels complelely at home.

What an interesting summation.

We like to think that encapsulates what Simpsons and Potts Point has to offer.

We are a pleasant oasis from te "hustle and bustle" of the outside world, but still just a pleasant stroll back in the downtown area.

Thanks for the clear description.

Cheers....Keith and the gang at "Simpsons" !

I was going to Sydney for a business trip but decided to make a weekend of it with my wife. I have stayed downtown in Sydney before and have found it to get very quiet very early. So having seen great reviews on Trip advisor i booked here.
Excellent choice . On a very early arrival from Singapore they had the room ready.The property is old but full of character and the rooms are very large and very comfortable . Couple this with great hospitality from the team and you have a great place to stay.
The area is also excellent with some very good restaurants just up the street.
Its a lovely walk through the Botanical gardens to the Opera house etc. -the location is excellent
I noted an earlier post from someone in Winnipeg cautioning people about the King's Cross area which is very close. I'm not sure what happened to them but i wouldn't worry. Yes its a colourful (red light) area but its tame compared to most and it enhances the experience of staying in the area.
All in all a great place to stay. When I return I will be back at Simpsons!

Room Tip: only saw one room but from the layout of the property i would suspect that they are all pretty large...

Thanks for the Review.

So glad that you enjoyed your change from the C.B.D. hotels. There is no doubt that the chain hotels have greater facilities and more modern accomdation, but we hope to compensate for that by the ambience and location of our lovely old home, and the personal service that we can offer!

And thankyou for clarifying the earlier comments from our Winnipeg Reviewer about Kings Cross. Sure it gets busy up there late on Friday and Saturday night when all the young people come into town, but overwise it is an interesting place to visit, with some good bars and restaurants, and convenient tourist shopping.

Cheers....Keith and the gang at "Simpsons" !

We planned to stay at Simpson's for 4 days and were enjoying our stay very much. The room was lovely, the breakfasts were very good, and everyone was friendly. But our stay had a surprise - my husband became very ill and I needed help in a city where I knew no one. The staff, Ree, Keith, Marie, and Damien, went above and beyond to help us. They called an ambulance and were there for me for the time I stayed beyond our planned stay. Without this support, I would have felt very alone, but Simpson's became my refuge. We can't begin to thank the staff enough. We are home now and my husband is doing well.

Simpsons Hotel is very charming indeed. We loved the classical music and fresh flowers in the entrance hall - it added such a welcoming feel each time we walked in. The guest lounge is so elegant, the rooms are beautifully decorated and clean, and the staff are warm and helpful (even with an emergency sewing kit for a recalcitrant dress hem, just before we were about to go out to dinner!!) We also enjoyed the breakfast, which had a good range of options. The location is excellent - a nice walk into the city passing many iconic Sydney sights. Most of all, the ambiance in a place so rich in history and eclectic art was truly memorable.

Thankyou for your kind words and excellent summary.

We are pleased that you enjoyed the atmosphere of "Simposns" and our charming Potts Point neighourhood!

And your comments about our little breakfast buffet were appreciated, as we do try to make in intersting and tasty. Whilst we are not able to serve hot fried food, we do think that this is good healthy start to the day!

My wife and I took a trip to the Simpsons of Potts Point Hotel and were extremely pleased with everything that it had to offer.

Situated close enough to the harbour, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this hotel has prime positioning.

Our room was comfortable, calming and cosy.

Finally, the staff. What a loving, friendly group of people. Keith was a godsend! If you need anything, just ask, all staff were more than accomodating.

Will return and bring friends :)

We loved Simpsons. It is perfectly located - a pleasant walk around the harbour to the main attractions of Sydney, surrounded by some good restaurants and bars and yet the rooms were quiet and peaceful. Our room was spacious and very comfortable.
We found the area quite safe.
The staff, especially Keith, were fantastic.
We will definitely stay there again and can highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The dormer room was very comfortable, spacious and peaceful and quiet.

Simpsons of Potts Point is truly a wonderful little hotel. An oasis in the busy city of Sydney.

Close enough to walk to all the beautiful sights around the harbour, yet in a quaint, trendy neighbourhood where great food and bars surround you.

Ree, Keith, Marie and Damien always make me feel welcome and are always happy to help with a new restaurant suggestion or walking route.

The rooms are all filled with individual antique pieces and lovely soft furnishings. All are traditional in style, and are in keeping with the style of the hotel.

The continental breakfast is lovely. Always complete with fresh gorgeous produce.

I cannot recommend Simpsons highly enough to all those travellers seeking a truly boutique experience.

Thankyou for that Review and your kind words.

We would like to think that you have summed us up accurately!

We do try to make guests feel comfortable and to help them plan their trip and vists around Sydney!

We also try to offer a healthy continental buffet breakfast, with interesting varied choices, as a good start to the day.

And yes, Potts Point is great village area, with a plethora of interesting little bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as all the neighbourhood conveniences. Far more choice than one gets in the heart of the C.B.D.

Thankyou again for your positive statements. We hope to see you again.

Cheers....Keith, and all of us at "Simpsons" !
