This hotel has spectatular views of the harbour bridge, opera house and the lights from the roof top swimming pool at night must not be missed. It is within walking distance of the harbour and many of the attractions.

Rooftop is great, no doubt at all on this. If you have bad luck a Cruise Ship blocks that great view onto the opera house. Staff is doing a great job, no doubt. In my opinion, the lobby could be made a bit more attractive, but it's ok. My room would have needed a bit a refreshment in facilities plus...

This hotel, although not the 'fanciest' hotel in Sydney, offers a comfortable stay. The highlight for me was the incredible views of the bridge, opera house, city and harbour on the rooftop pool. It was a great surprise. Service was exceptional as well - friendly staff!

Just a one night stopover using IHG free night award. Very early arrival, was looking to leave my bag and collect later, but the reception staff went beyond requirements to get me a room and upgraded one at that. Great location, close to Harbor Bridge / Circular Quay attractions and cruise passenger terminal. Nice view from roof top pool area,...

My wife and I stayed one night to attend a nearby wedding. As Sydney locals, we were proud to see how good this hotel is, and looked at it from the point of view of "tourists" in our own city. Superb. The staff were brilliant...it's the staff that make a difference, and the people here couldn't be more helpful. Great...

Our two families with teenagers used this hotel for our base for 4 days in Sydney. We could not have made a better choice. Comfortable beds, great service, lovely lobby and the location is perfect. Close to but seemingly far away from the city bustle. Beautiful views and great restaurants. Would stay here again

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
