Personal service and old world atmosphere with all modern amenities
 

Guests staying at the Harbour Rocks Hotel are immediately steeped in the history of the area; this 150 year old building was partially built by convicts and is located on the site of Sydney's first hospital. An intimate and personalized service is offered and staff aim to make each guest feel truly welcome and relaxed. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, with soft armchairs in the lounge, open fireplaces and elegant, refined décor. There is dining in the courtyard of Lanes Restaurant, where delicious local cuisine is served overlooking the delightful Rocks precinct.

3 Reasons To Stay:
 
  • Located in the heart of the historic Rocks district of Sydney, in a 150 year old listed building

  • Guests receive personal attention and a warm welcome, making this the perfect place to relax

  • Quiet, refined atmosphere that makes an ideal base for sightseeing and exploring the city

Harbour Rocks Hotel Rooms
 

The emphasis in Harbour Rocks Hotel guestrooms is on comfort and style and each of the 55 rooms and suites is delightfully decorated with warm colors and soft lighting, to create a pleasant atmosphere.

Up to the minute amenities and features are here too, with flat screen televisions, including on demand pay per view movies, air-conditioning and high-speed Internet access. For a truly special experience, visit the Harbour View suite, a penthouse apartment that offers astounding views across Sydney Harbour towards the iconic Sydney Opera House.

lovely but loud

Lovely boutique hotel in great area. Easy walk to Central Quay and transportation. Nice outside sitting area. Very loud on weekend nights though and our room was on the street level so it was very distracting. Smallest bathroom ever-sink partially blocked toilet.

Perfect location for a couple's getaway

We wanted to be in the heart of The Rocks so that we could walk to all the major attractions - Opera House, Harbour Bridge, etc. But we didn't want to pay the extreme prices of the big hotels. So we booked Harbour Rocks and would absolutely recommend it and come back. Small room, but perfect for the two of us as we were only there to sleep and shower! Location couldn't be easier.

Harbor Rocks Hotel Sydney

Made 4 calls to the desk to report that the air conditioning wasn't working in our room and was assured the maintenance engineer would call back. Never did get a call back as we checked in on a Fri. and learned he was gone til Monday and the air wouldn't be fixed. [...]

Good location

We used this hotel as a jumping point for walking to Darling Harbour, Hyde Park, the Queen Victoria Building, and Chinatown. All were within easy walking distance. Internet use was more expensive here than other places we used around Sydney. We really didn't use any other services at this hotel. The staff though helpful when asked, didn't go out of their way either. No one ever mentioned having breakfast here.

Avoid this place

The staff were incredibly unfriendly and gave us a room below the class we had booked online. Only upon presenting our confirmation did they move us to a room with a queen bed. This upgraded room was located next to a restaurant with loud music playing. [...]
