A good range beers on tap and plenty of food options. Totally inattentive and uninterested staff who care more about chatting amongst themselves than serving the customers that keep thwlem employed. Had the duck pizza. The topping was dry and the pizza base was dry. First and hopefully the last time i have a cheese less pizza. Terrible. No serviette...

Lots of character. Good food - we had the kangaroo burgers. Also lots of beer on tap. 25 on tap plus another 75 in bottle - all Australian. Try getting a paddle (flight of 5 beers to try a bunch). Service a little slow, but the staff is nice if you take a minute to talk to them. Also this...

For my brief (2 night) flying visit to Sydney I had a list of requirements which included easy access to trains, ferries and busses, close to bars, value for money and definitely not a soulless hotel. The Australian filled the requirements completely. Arriving at 10pm on a Friday the staff found time for a smile, a friendly greeting and escorting...

Our stay was very enjoyable the staff so friendly and courteous, the bed was very comfortable. The old girl (hotel) might be a little dated but it certainly makes up with it's location and all the previous mentions above.

Nice spot for late lunch/early dinner. One of the few places serving meals at this 3-5pm time slot. Children's meals well sized. Hubby very pleased with lamb burger. Pumpkin and Beetroot salad for me. Easy ordering at the bar.

Overall this is an excellent location to stay whilst in Sydney. Rooms are quite small, so if you're only there for a night or two, it's excellent. Bed is nice and hard, sheets soft, pillow a tiny bit lumpy. Staff are top notch, couldn't ask for a better team! The downside, however, as there is always one would be the...

.....and the sweet potato was pretty good too! Great location near the harbour bridge up in Rocks area of Sydney. Old fashioned Aussie pub, great selection of ales too. The menu was extensive and the staff were a friendly bunch. Takes paypass (contactless for UK folk)

Could do with a renovation, the place does look tired & run down. Stuck out like a sore thumb & not neccessarily in a good way. Particularly given the suave, affluent area. However pub had an excellent vibe. Food was well priced & "Coat of Arms" pizza was absolutely delicious. Well recommended.

Lovely old hotel/pub in a perfect location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are tired but clean. Breakfast was a basic DIY affair but perfect to get the metabolism started. Things to note: it's 100% uphill from Circular Quay with many steps so even though it's a short distance, consider a cab if you're not reasonably fit. The...

Five star it is not - but therein lies most of its charm. Friendly staff, seriously comfortable bed, free wifi, good choice of beer, great location. The food menu in the bar is typical pub grub but fills the hole nonetheless in a tasty way. I would have no problems staying here again. Its location makes it a great base...

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.
