Doug M.:” Park Hyatt – amazing hotel right next to the dock.

Joyce C.; “We stayed there several years ago. It was fantastic. Absolutely phenomenal, but pricey. Great view of the Opera House from our room.”

It’s got character to spare

Trish Hawksworth- C.:” Harbour Rocks hotel is very close to the cruise terminal, it’s slightly uphill if you are staying after a cruise, but an easy walk with cases if you’re starting a cruise. We have used this lovely boutique hotel and will stay there before our cruise next March.”

Linda G.:” I stayed at Harbor Rocks Hotel which was a very short walk to where my Celebrity ship was docked. It took us a couple of minutes to walk to port from the hotel or would be no more than a 2-minute cab ride. Rooms are small but nice. A boutique hotel, part of the MGallery Collection. Located in the convenient and historic Rocks area.”

The Harbour Rocks Sydney MGallery is the perfect Sydney accommodation choice, a popular home for many travellers. Harbour Rocks Hotel offers a fascinating glimpse into Sydney’s past and is a unique base from which to explore the city. All 59 rooms are well-appointed with modern amenities whilst preserving the historic charm of the building. The city’s harbour, Opera House and famous Rocks precinct are ideally located on your doorstep.

With its excellent location within The Rocks, Harbour Rocks Sydney MGallery has many of Sydney’s best attractions on its doorstep. Guests staying at this beautiful Sydney hotel are within walking distance of Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge e and the Royal Botanic Gardens. Other attractions in the area include The Rocks Markets, Museum of Contemporary Art, Dawes Point Park and The Rocks Discovery Museum. Trains, buses and ferries allow guests to explore the rest of Sydney and its surrounds.

The beautiful historic hotel has captured some of the earliest stories of Sydney’s past. The hotel does not have lifts and has four levels with short flights of stairs between each. There is a luggage lift and our porter is always willing to assist.

For a location, you could certainly do a lot worse: The Rocks is the corner of town with a front-row view of both the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the famous opera house. Then again, what’s inside the Harbour Rocks Hotel isn’t exactly hard on the eyes, either. The building is nearly a century and a half old, originally a warehouse, and the latest renovation is a master class on how to make the most of a splendid old building: the weathered brick walls, painted an expansive white in the public spaces and an arresting black in the bedrooms, are the envy of any “loft-style” boutique hotel.

It’s got character to spare, that much is clear. So it might be a bit of a surprise to learn that it’s an MGallery hotel, and thus part of the Accor family tree. Clearly, the corporate office hasn’t interfered with the aesthetics of the place. Like all the best city hotels, the Harbour Rocks interacts with the city around it. The leafy terrace is a hidden Sydney gem, and both the Scarlett restaurant and Eric’s Bar attract locals as well as hotel guests. And with a memorable location as well as the polished, professional service the big chains excel at, the Harbour Rocks has all the makings of a truly unique experience — and that, it turns out, is what matters the most.

Welcome to Wonder

Ovolo Hotel Woolloomooloo offers a unique stay, close to the heart of Sydney CBD but yet in a peaceful wharf location. Offering 5-star boutique accommodation options that include beautifully-designed private rooms and outstanding loft suites.  The rooms are incredibly spacious, with beds that will make you forget about home! They have amazing facilities which include an Indoor pool, restaurant, bar & a fitness center.

Bridging between heritage and modern luxury, indulge in the rich history of the Woolloomooloo wharf complemented by contemporary designs and tech-savvy inclusions. All in the comfort of your generously sized abode over picturesque Sydney Harbour.

Located near Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens, you will be in the perfect location to explore beautiful parklands and the Sydney Opera House as well as The Rocks.
We truly are the perfect luxury boutique hotel for your next trip to Sydney

It’s impossible to resist Ovolo Woolloomooloo’s location, an old finger wharf extending out over the water, still surrounded by docked vessels and affording prime views of the marina, the city, and the landmarks on the Harbour.

As is typical in industrial retrofits, some of the wharf’s structure and machinery is left exposed for effect, and rooms are loft-style, many split-levels, with vast and sumptuous king beds perched above living areas. The décor is maximalist, in this case avoiding the clichéd sunny Down Under palette in favor of chocolate faux-suede — an odd choice, and a memorable one. Colonial windows, Edison bulbs, and articulated lamps collectively signify a thoroughly contemporary design perspective, though it’s probably the in-room Apple TV unit, Smart TV, and iPad that prove once and for all that we’ve moved on from the Aughts. Or, you know, the incredible variety of complimentary: speedy wi-fi, stocked minibar — hell, there’s even a 24-hour indoor pool and gym on-site.

As with all Ovolo hotels, Lo Lounge offers an all-day and all-night retreat for every social need: coffee, a quick snack, shareable bites, and the hard stuff all flow freely. Then there’s the wharf at large, which houses a luxury apartment and entertainment complex as well as the hotel; you don’t have to set foot on dry land if you don’t want to, and certainly not to mingle, as the locals visit just for the bar. Then again, come morning, you’re so close to the shopping districts and the city’s landmarks that it would be a shame to miss them — take a walk to the Opera House and find not just an arresting Modernist structure but, inside, one of Sydney’s top restaurants as well.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.

Explore Sydney from our Circular Quay hotel

Stacy B.;  “Marriott at Circular Quay I recommend. Get an Opera house view room. There is a building in front of the hotel so you can’t get a room with a view of both the Opera house and the bridge. I don’t find the bridge is that interesting. On the weekend, The Rocks nearby has a great open-air market. The ferries come in at Circular Quay a block away. On Sundays, all public transportation is discounted. The ships dock nearby – if you need a cab when you disembark in Sydney, take the lift up to the 2nd floor of the terminal.”
