“Simpsons of Potts Point Just Great”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Stayed for 3 nights at this lovely little hotel on a quiet street in Potts Point. Very friendly and helpfull staff Keith and Ree are full of intesting facts and places to visit in Sydney. Immaculate rooms (they only have 12) well looked after far better than sterile chain hotels! Plenty of places to eat nearby and easy to wak into the city via the botaical gardens. The place to stay in this great city.

Room Tip: Any room is good

Thankyou for that kind Review.

Our dear old housekeeper, Juanna, who has been with us for over ten years,was especially gratified to hear you comments, as she does try so hard to keep everything immaculate.. Being an old building, it is often difficult to keep up with all the maintenance issues, but we do hope that our guests will forgive the odd paint chip here and there in return for the ambience of our lovely old mansion house.

Ree and I do enjoy sharing our knowledge of Sydney, and trying to show guests some of its hidden secrets they may not otherwise get to visit !

And yes, the walk into the C.B.D., along the Harbour and through the Domain Park, or the Royal Botanic Gardens is a real tonic ! Marie walks each day to work, near the Queen Victoria Building, in about 20-minutes, and tells me she enjoys every minute of it !.

Thanks again for your thoughtful Review.

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

Our second stay at Simpsons. Cannot recommend this place too highly. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is superb. the rooms well-appointed, and the atmosphere of the whole place is wonderfully welcoming. Location is excellent for a pleasant walk into the city centre, and of course the local facilities in Potts Point.

Thankyou Andrew for your kind words.

I am glad that you complimented us on our breakfast. Whilst our complimentary little buffet is not large, it is tasty and healthy, with a good range of interesting choices. Marie and Ree try to vary it as much as possible, and there seems to be something for most palates.

Marie's home-made rhubarb and apple compote is especially popular, and is very tasty with our Greek-style yoghurt, and Swiss-mix muesli! Yummy !

We are not able to offer hot food, for those who need the traditional " fried bacon and eggs style", there are a number of great "people-watching" cafes within a few minutes walk.

Thanks again for your Review....it does make all the difference, and we do appreciate it!

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

Simpsons of Potts Point is a beautiful hotel or rather house dating back to the 19th century, marvelously decorated and situated in a very enjoyable area with many restaurants and shops. A bus stop nearby to Circular Quay and Kings Cross Station is within walking distance. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and can suggest several highlights of Sydney. The rooms and the breakfast are excellent.

We remember these nice guys from the Netherlands. Thay did enjoy our Potts Point neighbourhood, and the friendly local restaurant scene.

We are close enough to walk into town (Marie works near the Strand Arcade in George Street and walks door-to-door, each day in 20-minutes), yet far enough away to avoid the "busyness" of the commercial centre, (an unintentional play on words!)

The Simpsons is a magnificently appointed heritage mansion full of charm and character. The large rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable. Located close to funky bars and cafes in the edgy Potts Point neighborhood, the Simpsons offers that perfect boutique hotel experience without being too far from the iconic landmarks of Sydney.

The staff are delightful! Thank you Keith, Marie and Ree for such warm and friendly service. We look forward to returning soon.

Yes, we do love the Potts Point area, and so it seems do a lot of our Australian visitors. Melbourne is a very gracious city, with lots of great locations, but certainly Sydney has it for scenic location, and Potts Point is just far enough away from the "hustle and bustle" of the C.B.D., but close enough to walk in.

Thanks Sherriff for your kind words. We do appreciate it!

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

I have just had my third stay at Simpson's. The location is perfect: close to the practical and the exotic when it comes to shopping and dining; close to transport or, even better, a very walkable distance into the city centre; close to the harbour. Simpson's hosts are a delight - knowledgeable about their city and the history of the house itself, flexible, attentive without being intrusive, and very smooth organisation-wise. The three rooms I've stayed in were quite different in set up but equally clean, comfortable, stylish and light. Windows looking out over the rooftops give you a special perspective of the city and the local area. Sherry in the lounge before dinner, port when you finally wander back after a big day out. Treat yourself to Simpson's - you'll love it.

Room Tip: Just ask for a room with a bigger bathroom if sharing or if you are a larger body build.

Lovely hosts, lovely room and nestled in the best part of Sydney. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back (hopefully with slightly less of a hangover). Big thanks to Ree for her wonderful hospitality and to Keith for the superb breakfast! Andrew and Nerissa

A lovingly restored Arts and Crafts house furnished with beautiful period pieces. More like staying in a home than a hotel and far removed from chain hotels. It is ideally situated in a quiet area but within easy walking distance of the Botanical Gardens and the Sydney Opera House. Everyone was so friendly and helpful giving us lots of tips on places to stay. Found by accident on the net but will remain in our address book next time we come to Sydney.

Room Tip: There is no lift so choose ground floor if you have problems with stairs

We are pleased that you just found us on the net!

We thankyou for your kind Review, and are glad that you enjoyed the various outings we planned for you.

Sydney is such a beautiful city, so we always feel a little disappointed when we hear that guests have only visited the traditional tourist spots, rather than some of the hidden secrets that the City has to offer.

Thanks again Jane.
