This gorgeous hotel has understated character, spacious rooms, comfortable beds and, when we went in April, a gentle fun & friendly vibe (it shifts to more of a beach party feel in the summer - the beer garden is one of the best places you can be on a Sydney summer afternoon). The staff are friendly, efficient (and honest, pointing out the room we had booked might be loud when the weekend DJ is on). We wanted to stay longer before we had even got to our room. Perfect for a relaxing, chilled weekend.

Thank you for your wonderful review Kevin. So glad to hear that you and the family enjoyed your stay and we cannot wait to welcome you back next time!

Beautiful loft room, perfect for a family. Even on the “least desirable” view side (north facing), we could still see the harbour (but also the storage yard for the Beach Club and the neighbour’s laundry drying). The bathroom is exceptional and the beds were very comfortable. The location is amazing in the hub of Watson’s Bay. My only minor complaint was the metal plates installed on the loft stairs - the stairs are carpeted and I assume the metal plates were installed to prevent people slipping, but they are very uncomfortable to step on barefoot. However, that’s a very small issue for an otherwise excellent stay.
