My wife and I stayed for 4 nights before our cruise out of Sydney. The hotel location is very convenient, 5 minutes from Overseas Passenger Terminal and the Circular Quay. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The major drawback is that there is no A/C nor window screens. It was a bit unbearable when we experienced a couple of hot...

The Rocks is a great neighborhood to stay in to explore Sydney. The hotel is above the pub. The pub has a great atmosphere and an extensive beer list and also has plenty of outside tables. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms upstairs are not great. If are okay with a small room with bad carpet, basically no...

I have been drinking at this pub since the mid 1980's. It is in a great location and is a very well preserved heritage building. I have been travelling overseas and returned to Australia last December. I dropped into the Australia for a beer. I was stunned to find that a pint of beer was &12.62. A couple of day...

I'll start with the positives: The location is perfect for exploring The Rocks, Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay and and easy walk from Wynyard Station, the staff were very pleasant, the shared bathroom was clean, the bed was clean and comfortable, and the hotel has a lot of historic charm. Now for the negatives: The carpet in my room (room 3)...

Visited after completing the bridge climb and we had definitely worked up a appetite. We ordered 2 Auzzie pizzas 1 was the famous coat of arms pizza and a bottle of red. We really enjoyed it, what a lovely pub. Great location in the Rocks would defiantly recommend, thought it was good value too!

I visited this place with my girl and an another couple (friends of ours). We ordered 3 different pizzas to be shared and they all were very good. We enjoyed our stay and pizzas were quite affordable. There were 2 sizes available and if you're hungry then don't think about the small one because it is more like a snack....

We took some friends from overseas here for pizza and beer. The men loved the Kangaroo and emu pizza. I had the nachos which were delicious but we ended up ordering more wedges as they were so vruchy and tasty. We had a large group and so sat outside on a hot afternoon...the vibe and atmosphere was just perfect. The...

I had a half and half large pizza containing half crocodile. The other half was half emu and half kangaroo. I had never tried these meats before, so the pizza was more of an indulgence for the novelty. The crocodile looked like a stringy version of chicken with a bit less flavour. The emu and beef were both gamey and...

Having visited this pub for the first time over thirty years ago I am delighted to report that in that time it has retained it's character for subsequent visits. It is a true gem in the heart of this vibrant city!

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
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 “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
