I just left the Palisade Hotel top floor as I was told we could not wear gym shoes or hats. I would not have minded but noted that 95 percent of people were wearing gym boots or thongs. There were even a number of men with hats on. The hat I had on was an expensive black felt hat fit...

Drinks on the top bar followed by dinner downstairs. Great view, limited seating due to the crowd. $48.00 for 2 beers (bottled) and 2 Proseccos. Won't be going back at those prices. Restaurant downstairs leaves a lot to be desired re: fit out and ambience. view only of walls with small tables and old chairs. Food good quality.

My partner and I stayed in the Alice Muskett room. After reading reviews on TripAdvisor I expected it to be very small, which is very true. There is also no air conditioning which makes it that tiny less comfortable/luxurious, but this is because it is a heritage listed building. In saying this, the room had beautiful decor and they made...

I had our work Christmas party in The Linnean, a private function room. It was a perfect intimate room with private balcony, for our small group of 18. Finger food was good and views and atmosphere fantastic. We stayed the night in the 8 room boutique hotel. The Standard rooms are tiny but beautifully restored and presented with all mod...

We didn't stay at the hotel, we went for dinner and drinks and were not only greatly surprised but fell in love with the place, becoming one of our favorites in Sydney. The hotel has a couple of floors with bars/restaurants, each decorated very different and vintage style, the last floor being the largest restaurant and very chic. It has...

Had a beautiful relaxing long lunch with my partner here as a last day of work for 2016 celebration and it did not disappoint. The view from the cocktail bar is extraordinary, and the food was delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff friendly. Will definitely be back to dine there.

This place was recommended by a friend of a friend. The views of Sydney harbour from the top floor are fabulous but we could not get a table (tip: make sure you reserve a table if you're coming at night) and the service was incredibly slow. We ended up going back down to the 4th floor where the bar was...

Beautiful Hotel in traditional style overlooking Walsh Bay. Our Regi James Room had marvelous 180* view over the harbour and city. We dined at the restaurant on the roof and were looked after by the very pleasant staff. Recommended..

This hotel has wonderful views of the harbour from the upper levels, however the drinks were very over priced - $25 for a beer and a sparkling wine. Also you couldn't take the stairs and the lift took forever.

In an amazing location with stunning views from the top two floors. In the rooms upstairs it has been tastefully renovated and both the top floors have the views. We were refused entry to the top floor as some of our group (6 of us) were wearing shorts and sneakers. We would be classified as "seniors". We had completed a...
