Right on the Rocks by Circular Quay and with great views from the terrace on the roof across Sydney Harbour. The rooms are functional and clean, the staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Ask for a high floor room overlooking the harbour.More

Walk out side door of hotel not front. In alleyway that has restaurant entrance. There ahead is a cafe that is organic and healthy and fresh food. Just can’t remember it’s name. So just a stroll under 2mins.
