Straight to the reason for the poor review. And if you check my past reviews this is my first negative one. Trying to prove I don't whinge for the sake of it.

Pleasent stay, hotel was nice and querky, we had a room with a shared bathroom and it was clean and spacious. Breakfast was good but limited selection. What made this hotel brilliant was the location, it one street back from the Harbour bridge and Opera...More
We stayed for four nights in a small standard room with ensuite (#29). We chose this hotel because of the location at circular quay. We had everything we wanted at our doorstep. The Rocks and all that area offers. The trains, ferries and buses a...More
Lovely hotel with good sized rooms and a good breakfast. The best thing about this hotel is the location! It is right by the bridge and across the water from the opera house. We visited for our honeymoon and couldn't ask for better.
Stayed here for one night. We had a room with our own bathroom. The room was fairly small but fine for a short stay.
Bed was comfy and it's a great location right in 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.

Hi Wendy, you are not permitted to smoke inside any of our rooms. Our private rooftop terrace is a designated smoking area, or you can smoke outside the building in Globe Lane or on George Street. Thanks!
