Recent guest reviews

Our family get together for 15 people last Friday evening was perfect thanks to the professionalism & attention to detail of management, reception & service staff. All the rooms had gorgeous harbour, bridge & Luna Park views, were spotless & so comfortable. Dinner was absolutely delicious from entree to dessert, with the chef also providing an additional sweet platter with coffees. The next morning 8 of us walked just down the road to the secret garden, like a childhood fantasy garden, & Luna Park in brilliant sunshine, warmth & the sparkling harbour. A special thank you to Ionel & David who were very patient & responsive to each change & request that made the difference. We are already planning the next stay.

Arrived at this hotel and was pleasantly surprised at the location. We bought an Opal Card and jumped on the train, 20 mins later, one change at central station and we arrived at North Harbour Station next door to the hotel. Staff are really friendly and the bar man Steve made the very non descriptive bar a great place to stop by and have a drink. The rooms are great and have a view of Sydney Harbour Bridge which Just added value to the hotel. Breakfast is $30 and worth the price paid, buffet style and enough choice for all. We had early bird breakfast before 8am Sat & Sun (not sure if this is a regular offer) but again worth getting up early for. The easy train link makes this a great place to stay, the only downside to this hotel is the station is underneath and you get a constant low rumbling from trains, notwithstanding, this did not effect our enjoyment of the hotel. Ferry station is close so you can take the ferry to circular quay, however be prepared to wait as services didn’t seem that regular and is a walk to the hotel. Wendy’s secret garden is quaint and Just behind the hotel so make sure you have a walk around this. Would I stay here again? Most definitely, without hesitation!!

Stayed one night and didn’t want to leave! The view was sensational and we didn’t want to leave the room so much that we ordered room service for dinner. Food was delicious, bar was well stocked and the staff were friendly. The hotel also offers fantastic value compared to what you would find in the CBD. You’re only a quick train trip or ferry ride from Circular Quay.

We stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary and it was fantastic. Our room had views of the harbour and the rooms are really nice.The breakfast overlooking the harbour was a great selection of foods and very fresh. Staff were all very friendly. Central to everything you would want to see in Sydney.

Selected for its claimed views it certainly lived up to our expectations, just awesome. Staff very helpful, clean and comfortable bed and room nicely laid out. Great location to shops, eateries and the Harbour Bridge. Coming from the airport we took the train getting off at North Sydney just 50 mts from the hotel, so convenient and quick. Would have received 5 stars if only the bar staff knew what they were doing! Just one fabulous Tongan gentleman had any idea about drinks and service. Recommend you give it a go.

Room provides a great view of the Sydney Harbour bridge, and is spacious even for two people. Was being placed on a high floor, thus I had no issue with the train noise that other travellers mentioned about. Location is near the train station and various dining options, but since it is located in the business district, the area is pretty quiet on weekends with most shops closed.

The room was large, comfortable and immaculate. The shower unit was a dream. Breakfast was fantastic and evening meal in restaurant was excellent. 2 mins from station + opal card shop next door made travel easy. I did not see a better hotel in Sydney. Highly recommended.

Arrived here after a 14 hour flight to be greeted by a distinctively attired young man but who was both welcoming and efficient. This is the same for all the staff be they cleaning, concierge or bar staff. The hotel is older than I thought but was spotlessly clean when arrived and stayed this way throughout our stay. The bar snacks we ordered were well cooked and very tasty. I can recommend room 1001 for the view alone. Many thanks for a pleasant stay.

The Harbourview is a great place to stay if you want the best view of the entire Sydney harbour. It is delightful to wake up in the morning, open the curtains, and see the activity on the harbour from a distance. Also, at night, the lights of the city provide an interesting reflection on the water.. The hotel staff is great. Quite helpful for whatever one needs. They will also point the way to local restaurants in Kirribilli and Lavender Bay or to the harbour bridge if you wish to use the walking path over to the center of Sydney. North Sydney is a little quite after 5 p.m. so you will want to take the walk nearby Kirribilli or a quick cab ride to the city for dinner and other evening activities. This is not a luxury hotel. Rooms are nice, clean, functional, but a bit small. Be sure to request a room on or above the 7th floor in order to not hear the train that runs nearby. The restaurant on the premise serves a good breakfast. I have been there many times on business in North Sydney. I really enjoy the view.

Just like the name suggests, there is an incredible view of the bridge Also easy walk down to the water and along to Luna Park . The hotel restaurant is decent for dinner, but I didn't bother staying for breakfast as it was buffet only (not my thing) Rooms are nice, but nothing special Hotel could do with a refurbishment, but for the price and location it's recommended
