Sydney Boutique Accommodation

Sydney puts flashlights to shame, we always say. The sparkle of Darling Harbour and light bouncing off the sails of the famous opera house are always shining. Like a spotlight showering Olivia Newton John, Sydney is set on you: You’re the one that it wants. So why shouldn’t you bask in the city’s glow?

Book a room at one of the most charming Sydney boutique hotels (staying at a chain is so last year), and you’re ready to set off on a New South Wales adventure fit for a savvy traveller.

Soak Up the Sydney Sun

You’ve dropped your bag at one of the best boutique hotels in Sydney—perhaps QT Sydney or The Russell Hotel—and you won’t be back until you’re ready to nod off for the night. Well, good news: Sydney is always aiming to impress. Like a well-groomed bachelor on a dating app, it’s always putting its best foot forward—picture it posing with a puppy. Here are a few things to do in the Harbour City:

  • Royal Botanic Gardens: Your Instagram account is about to get a lot of hits, so prepare to be internet-famous. We’re talking about the incredible photos you’ll post of the Herbarium and blooming lotus flowers.
  • Sydney Harbour Bridge: Your next mission, should you choose to accept it, is to climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Tackle the BridgeClimb during the twilight hour and the sunset might just take your breath away. Wait, are you in the middle of a romantic comedy? Maybe.
  • Bondi Beach: Bondi is one of the most epic beaches in the world, hands down. Get to the serious business of lounging on the bone-white sand, or take your surfboard out beyond the tide. The best boutique hotels in Sydney don’t mind if you return smelling like sun cream and salt.

Have an Epicurean Expedition

Sydney is by the sea—have we mentioned that? That means your dinner could have been sleeping in the ocean last night, if you’re into that sort of thing. Put a fork into a plate of crab linguine at a Bondi Beach restaurant, and then put that fork in your mouth. Repeat. You’ll thank us later.

On the cusp of Sydney Harbour, Hickson’s Food & Wine is serving up kingfish ceviche and a massive wine list. When you’re not afraid of getting a little grease on your hands, which is most of the time, you can go ahead and order up a plate of fish and chips in North Sydney. No matter what you chow on, you’ll be stumbling back to one of our charming boutique Sydney hotels as happy as Larry.

What’s the hold-up, traveller? Time to book Sydney boutique accommodation on Wotif today. Boutique hotels offer the privacy and personality that a brand hotel may not, and without sacrificing a prime location. That’s what we call a win-win.
