The hotel is in a wonderful location and is within walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and sights in The Rocks. The Superior Queen room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff had great recommendations on where to eat and even made a reservation for us. We were traveling in a group of four, so had two separate rooms. While the room […] my husband and I stayed in was fine, my husband’s parents found ants in the room they were originally given. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating and moved them to an upgraded room. They were very happy with the new room until the card swipe machine on the door stopped working. For the remainder of our stay, they had to have a member of the hotel staff let them into the room every time they needed back in since the hotel wasn’t able to get the mechanism fixed while we were there. The staff again were very accommodating and ended up discounting our parking for the length of our stay. So while we did have a couple of issues, overall we really enjoyed our stay and cannot say enough good things about the staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Locaton in the Rocks"
Located in the heart of the Rocks district, the hotel is close to many tourist sites. Room and bed were comfortable and clean, though on the small side. Bathrooms were very tiny, but for one or two, it's adequate. Hotel décor is modern and chic. Staff was very friendly. Breakie was included in our rate and was good and tasty, though not elaborate. My […] room was interior and based on where the hotel is located, probably has limited (if any) views of the Circular Quay Harbor, but was essentially just around the block from the harbor. I've stay at several hotels in the Circular Quay area, all with slightly different appeal depending on what you are looking for (views of Opera House or views of city sky-line), but as far as staying in the heart of the historic Rocks district, the Harbour Rocks is an excellent choice.

"Perfect boutique HOTEL! !"
This hotel is perfect. Enter into a modern/rustic library lobby with a beautiful bar open 24 hrs.!! Everyone was amazing and so helpful and the rooms were beautiful and clean and just perfect for our needs. Right in the rocks a few steps from the Lowenbrau and other amazing food and pub spots and five minutes from the Harbour. We will only stay here […] when we are in the city.

Response by Harbour Rocks Hotel Sydney - MGallery Collection Hi Edwin, Thanks for taking the time to review your stay! We love the 5 stars - THANK YOU! We hope to welcome you back soon. Sincerely, Dylan Cole General Manager
We loved the Harbour Rocks-the location could not be beat as we were about a 2 minute walk to circular quay and to the harbour bridge. The area is full of great cafes, restaurants and lots of live music. The staff at the Harbour rocks was so friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed Paul, who works at the front desk/bar and was an absolute pleasure. […] Our first evening we were too jet-lagged to go far and ate dinner at the bar, which was delicious as well. Overall, cannot recommend this boutique hotel enough!

The rooms are a bit small but the hotel is in great shape. Love the staff and you cannot beat the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This lovely boutique hotel is so close to Circular Quay, you can walk there in minutes. If you're going on a cruise, you can roll your luggage down the street to the ship! The staff is super friendly and the hotel is nice size. The only criticism is that there is not elevator (lift). There is a luggage "dumb waiter" so you don't have to trudge your […] bags upstairs. If you have a problem with stairs, ask for a room on the first floor. It's worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Rock's Beauty!"
Our family of three have just spent the New Years week at this hotel. The location was great, the inhouse restaurant & surrounding restaurants didnt dissapoint, the beds were so beautiful we slept in every day. Two things not so good was the Internet access - which we ended up using the free 3 hr offer from the Rendezvous Hotel across the road! Also […] the bathroom was verging on being too small. Other than that a great stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great tourist location in Sydney"
We enjoyed the hotel, especially for it's prime location. We arrived in Australia via cruse, which docked two blocks away. We were within walking distance of many great sites including Darling Harbour. Within an easy walk to bus, train and ferry transportation. We did have a problem with the AC unit making noise (which was never resolved), other than […] that everything was fine. Overpriced maybe, but everything in Sydney is overpriced...

"Great location in the heart of the city"
Great boutique hotel in the Rocks area close to the key city attractions. Small but adequate rooms in a charmingly renovated building. Stayed here for 7 days exploring Sydney. At arrival a bottle of wine waited for us in the room. There is an on-site bar/ lounge and a breakfast restaurant with good menu. The hotel offers pre-payment of breakfasts which […] gives you a lower price, but you have to commit in advance how many breakfasts you want. I typically like to eat at local places to get a better feeling of the local atmosphere. House keeping was excellent Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Surprisingly, this hotel does not have an elevator. It can thus be difficult to reach your room or the restaurant in the basement if you have a physical disability. The hotel staff, however, were very helpful in taking baggage to and from our room. The walls of our room were painted black. This made for a dismal ambiance, particularly since the lighting […] in the room was not strong. We expected better for the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Still rocks, only a little less!"
I had stayed here before and had a fantastic experience. I realise now, that that was because I had the handicap access room, to the back of the hotel, away from the traffic and noise of the main street. This time, I had a room that not only captured all of the traffic noise, but had every passerby literally walking past the room window with every opportunity […] to peer into the room. Moreover, it was the weekend, so I also had to endure drunken serenaders. The staff are as fantastic as ever, but anyone booking should ask for a room away from the street.

"The Place to Stay in the Rocks"
The Hotel was modern and great. We stayed in the Heritage superior queen room and had a view of the Sydney Opera house. The stay was comfortable and worth the cost. The location was great. A quick walk from the ferry and train station and opera house. It was ultra convenient. If I am in Sydney again this is where I am going to stay. The staff was very […] helpful. There was a luggage elevator, but no human elevator so you need to walk up stairs to get to your room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We put a lot of expectations about this Hotel. The situation is very good and the hotel is charm. But, overall, we r not happy with the hotel, and for the amount of money we paid we would go for some of the others surrounding this area. We had the room 306 and the whole night was very noisy, so , was hard to sleep even we don't have any problem sleeping […] at all. We ask to pay by cash on the hotels website and they charged to our credit card and the also charged to us medium bottles of water when he just a small one, we was told that this is going to be fixed...so we will see Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"At the heart of historical Sydney"
My wife and I booked this hotel due to its location. We were not disappointed with the location being right in the centre of historical Sydney. The staff are very helpful, unpretentious and frankly just good people. The rooms are well situated and clean with what you need.Genuine Expedia guest review
On the positive side, the hotel is in an excellent location, within walking distance of the harbour and opera house. It is charming and has very comfortable and appealing common areas. Staff are friendly and competent. On the negative side, our room was small, but more importantly the bed was uncomfortable and the air conditioning unit blew directly […] on the bed. The window didn't open so it was necessary to have the unit on to manage the temperature in the room. It was not a good situation for sleeping well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, beautiful hotel no WIFI"
The hotel is beautiful and the location is right next to The Rocks - so great for dining out and close to Waterfront - with fab views of the Opera House. The hotel had come highly recommended by several people and as I visit Australia every year for business reasons, I decided I should try it. If I was staying in Australia for a holiday I would definitely […] choose this hotel. But as I was here on business the lack of WIFI was a real problem. I stayed for 10 days and the WIFI in my room did not work once. It worked outside my bedroom door, but not inside! I did complain and was told that as the router was literally ‘outside’ my room they couldn't get me closer to the router so it wouldn't help to move me to a different room. The reception staff tried to reset the WIFI but nothing worked. I ended up racking up a mobile phone bill of over £1000 just to download my emails every day. Needless to say, next year I will stay at one of the faceless corporate hotels which allows me to keep in touch with the UK office without the huge costs! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Coffee and tea making facilities located in the wardrobe!! Silly shelf above the vanity basin in the bathroom made it difficult to use. Wardrobe and bathroom doors clashed. Design won over functionality too little shelf and draw space and poor use of floor space. Lovely hotel let down by poor room design and selection of furnitureGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Harbour Rocks Hotel Sydney - MGallery Collection Hi Derek, Thank you very much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I'm sorry that your overall stay didn’t fully live up to expectations. I appreciate you highlighting areas that we can improve. I'll be sure to raise your comment in regards to the Coffee and Tea making facilities, this is a fair point you raise. I agree that the functionality of the little shelf above the vanity basin was not fully thought through when refurbishing the hotel. We continue to look at ways that we can better manage our space in the bathroom. I'm sorry this impacted on the comfort of your stay. Thanks again for taking the time to review your stay and we do hope to welcome you back in the future. Sincerely, Dylan Cole General Manager

"A very funky hotel"
My husband and I chose this hotel for its location not really knowing too much about it. The hotel is very cool - a combination of old world charm and very trendy décor. Our room (# 120) was light and spacious despite the dark décor - bathroom a little small but very clean. The hotel is small but as mentioned tastefully decorated - if you're after boutique […] style accommodation then this is the place to stay. The staff are so warm and inviting and we'd like to make special thanks to Paul the On-site Manager who went out of his way to ensure our stay was memorable. Breakfast was included in our package and we could order anything off the a la carte menu which was delicious. The menu prices were also very reasonable which surprised us given the venue. There is a lovely little private courtyard you can have a few drinks on with comfortable lounges and heaters. We will definitely return to the hotel again without a doubt.

Great location in the heart of the Rocks. Booked Superior Heritage room but it was located on ground floor at street level and a lot of street noise at night prevented a good nights sleep.

The en suite was the smallest I have ever come across; the staff informed me that due to the old building the original en suites could not be altered. For a superior room it was very small. Breakfast was ordered for our first morning; we arrived at 9.30 and there were no tables. When we were seated 10 minutes later we immediately ordered our cooked […] breakfast. These took over 30 minutes to arrive which is unacceptable. Apparently only 1 chef was on duty that morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great to walk into - historic building restored in interesting contemporary style. Efficient check-in and check-out.

"Nice room, hard to check in."
No complaints about the facilities. However, when I arrived to check in the hotel was locked up, no one answered the door and when I phoned the hotel nobody picked up the phone. If it wasn't for another guest who already had a key who came back and let me in, I would have been locked out.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stairs are a little bit of a negative and size of rooms are a little small however the location and staff make up for that.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Harbour Rocks Sydney last week"
V disappointing. I was charged a high rate. The room was pokey, right on the street. Without proper curtains. The bathroom was tiny - could hardly move in it. The TV had v few working channels - most came up with Foxtel messages to upgrade the TV subscription. I had been precharged when I had specified to pay on the day via Expedia.Genuine Expedia guest review
