This hotel offers a pleasing change from the usual international hotel chain accommodation. The building's appearance is deceptive, once you traverse the old stairway you have access to a modern, up to date hotel room. Admittedly the room was not large, but the open air balcony and views add to the allure of the hotel. The public bar and Henry...

The rooftop bar here is magic. A view of the Bridge and Darling Harbour. It is magic as the sun goes down. Take the elevator to the top floor and then hick up the stairs to the rooftop. You won't be disappointed. There is a nice light filled room plus a small outdoor area. You can watch the world go...

Great spot to eat here, views from the roof are amazing (sadly to busy when we were there to get a seat) but enjoyed the atmosphere of the ground floor. A nice variety of beer and food choices. The view on the ground is pretty good given you look out one window to find the Harbour Bridge.

This hotel is in a quiet street very close to Sydney Harbour bridge, with great views over the bay. Its quirky - an old building with quite a funky bar on ground floor and no formal reception area. - our room nicely restored and, while small, quite luxurious and very comfortable. Staff are charming and most helpful, and there's a...

We went to the Palliside after dinner at a local restaurant, the view was magnificent! We bought a lovely bottle of wine to finish off the evening. Unfortunately my girlfriend had bought her bottle of wine from the BYO restaurant with one glass left in the bottle. She didn't want to carry the bottle home wth her so finished off...

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to provide some feedback. Are you able to provide me with some more information on a time and date and whether this was in our public house or in our top floor cocktail lounge. We are a licenced venue and as such are not allowed to have outside beverages brought in and certainly...

The hotel is in quite a good location and the onsite bar and restaurant is good and has amazing views. The downside of the room though is it's quite small especially if you have a couple of big suitcases. The biggest problem though was that it doesn't have air con! We just assumed this would be the case in a...

Hotel Palisade was a bit of a gamble for me, I more often stay in well known places or places I have been before. I do love history however and this pub was built in 1915 and reopened in 2015 after award winning renovations. It has character and charm, is beautifully clean and well located with quick easy walk to...

Great old pub restored to its original glory. Wide variety of beers served with a smile. Sensational lunchtime meal in the quiet bar area on the ground floor. But take the elevator upstairs to catch 360 degree views of the city and surrounds. Could be Sydney's best kept secret !

First time visitors to this hotel and greeted by security at the front entrance who was very polite and accommodating. Proceeded to level four for drinks where bar staff could not be more helpful. Very friendly with outstanding customer service and made our evening a real treat. The barman was an absolute gentleman. Wife & I very impressed and will...
