Great location right next to Sydney's CBD, this hotel provides an old school charm while maintaining a clean and comfortable stay. It isn't a far walk to quench your thirst or curb your cravings upon arrival as the hotel is home to a lively bar and restaurant. The service is friendly and quick, without disappointing your tastebuds! I recommend the...

Good hotel for a night or two, but definitely not for extended stays. Room was small and description on booking listed it as having a balcony, which it didn't. Staff were nice and bar downstairs was good for a couple of drinks. Location is good if you want to get out amongst it but wouldn't recommend if you're looking to...

Looking for a good place to watch a little rugby and I found Harpoon Harry's (part of Harry's Hotel dating back to 1912) as a place that had the games on, a great old style pub decor and food and service that more than hit the spot. The Sunday roast was superb with all the trimmings including a giant portion...

My wife and I visited Sydney this easter and stayed in this Hotel. When booking online we thought it would be nice to stay at a hotel with charm. Oh how wrong we were. First we were given room 217.

For my last business trip to Sydney in many years to come, I chose to avoid a normal business hotel and opted for this funky option. The bar and restaurant on ground floor as well as the lounge spaces on the 1st floor are quintessential Surrey Hills, with quirky laid back design, garage feel and great staff. The room however...

Stayed at hotel Harry from 10th-13th March, staff were very friendly especially Rachel and David who were very helpful throughout the weekend with suggestions of places to visit and where to go for dinner. A complimentary bottle of wine was very unexpected but an excellent touch to the weekend. The bar downstairs had a great atmosphere and the noise wasn't...

Beautiful old building with unbelievably good food in the pub downstairs. I ate the Green Goddess Salad twice in the two days we were there, it was awesome!

I stayed in a very small room that was so poorly lit that it was claustrophobic. It was very noisy and there is a decent size hole in the ceiling in the bathroom (photo attached). The entire bathroom floor was under water when I had a shower. Definitely not 4 stars as advertised!
