          At the top end of The Rocks. Very affordable. No elevator or lifts. Many stairs to rooms. Tasty tucker and creamy Guinness. Handy to the Quay, 10 mins to Wynyard or Circular Quay railway stations. Under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

          This place was chosen for a family birthday lunch, primarily because of the positive reviews. The kitchen must have been having an off day as no-ones food was anything more than passable. Disappointing!

          I had dinner here with a friend and had the Irish Chicken curry which actually comes with rice and chips. The meal was delicious. Good cold beer and a good atmosphere. The staff were very alert and friendly and we had a great night.

          The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
          sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
          neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
          streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
          buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
          Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi

          My husband and I have reservations (Booking number: 1536218573) or Feb. 17, 2018. I believe that we have a private bathroom, air conditioning and non smoking. Which are a priority for us. After reading the reviews and the fact that we arrive on a Saturday, would it be possible for a quiet room? Also since check in starts at 1:30, would it be possible to drop off our suitcases and enjoy the day because our flight arrives early in the morning. Elizabeth Aklinski
