Harbourside Apartments

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had such a fantastic time at this hotel! We were here for New Years Eve and we had THE perfect spot to welcome the New Year in. The view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House is amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and it was a great way to start 2018 off with my family and a spectacular view!

I like everything about this place: the view, the unit, the strategic location, the friendly staff, the surrounding, etc. The ferry wharf is only two minutes away, save you from having to wait in chill in the wharf during winter time. You can also sit and relax in the yard in front of the apartment building during other seasons, while looking at extremely beautiful view (great for taking pictures).

Location, location, location!!!!! Magnificent views across to Luna Park, the Opera House and the Bridge. Situated only metres from McMahons Point to catch the ferry over to Circular Quay to embark ship - no hassles with taxis and traffic and at a cost of only $7.50!

From the moment we arrived we loved this place. The view spectacular the rooms clean and comfortable. The heated pool and the pool area wonderful Reception staff pleasant , fresh complimentary muffins from the counter and convenient car parking. Lovely walks and great cafes nearby Can't wait to return.

We stay here on a regular basis for several reasons. It is in North Sydney at the end of Blues Point Road with the best uninterrupted view of the Opera House, harbour bridge, all of north Sydney and right up the harbour both ways. The windows open, the apartments are all updated and spotless and it has plenty of free parking and is a stones throw from the Sydney Ferries. And when you are hungry there are a plethora of eateries up the road. Oh, and it is less than half the cost of all of the hotels in both Sydney and North Sydney. Beat that! And most of all, friendly and helpful staff, who have become friends.

The building is old but clean. My room was spacious with all the facilities you would expect. The view from the front of the property is spectacular. I thought it waa overpriced as to the standard of accommodation

Our room was top floor, corner, and the views across the harbor were fantastic, day and night. Rooms are a little dated but very clean and functional. Don't plan to walk anywhere, as it is a tough stair climb up to the street and then a long walk to anything; pretty isolated. There is a bus stop and a ferry dock a block away, though, and the ferry runs over to the main Sydney locations like Darling Harbour and Circular Quay (= "key") very regularly (20 mins daytime). There are brightly colored lorikeets that hang out on the window sills and if you open the kitchen window they will come in and steal the sugar packets supplied by the hotel for your tea and coffee. We would stay again but it took a day to learn how to get around.

Far superior to many of the high end accommodation in the harbour, the apartments provided a fantastic base for the harbour with a ferry stop a the doorstep and McMahon's Point shops a very short walk. The apartments are undergoing renovations so will be even better once the bathrooms and kitchens are modernised. A few more refinements (ie the picture on wall kept falling down) and it would be outstanding, but very good as it is.

These apartments are the perfect place to stay in Sydney. You can travel very easily by ferry, bus and train from here. The apartment we had was on the 10th floor with views of the Harbour Bridge & Opera House, absolutely spectacular! The apartment was spotlessly clean and appeared to have been beautifully renovated quite recently. The daily housekeeping was an added bonus as were the delicious muffins that were available each morning at Reception. My only disappointment was that there is no air conditioning, there were very efficient ceiling fans but I think on very hot Sydney summer days it could be a little uncomfortable but there is always the beautiful swimming pool to cool off in. I'm sure this will be a place we chose to stay on our frequent visits to Sydney.

Hello, Just stayed at the apartments for a week end in Sydney. Apartments are awesomely located, next to a ferry terminal to take you to darling harbour or circular quay to manly in no time. Clean, friendly staff, great views onto bridge and opera and great value compared to hotel in cbd.
