    Very unusual for a pub to offer 99% of their drinks on very good happy hour prices ($5) & for a good convenient length of time (2hrs 7-9pm!). Conveniently located bar in The Rocks & live music if you’re in to that.

    Pretty basic rooms but great if you just need somewhere to rest your head for the night. We stayed in the family room and all beds were comfortable. The pub below was fantastic with great lice music and a brilliant atmosphere. Highly recommended

    Enjoyed great service and generous meals with my daughters in a trip to Sydney. The location is especially great close to Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay and the Harbour. We plan to stay here again when we arrive on a cruise.

    The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
