I stayed here with friends on a recent trip to Australia, it is a lovely hotel with excellent friendly staff. My only negative comment would be that the rooms we had were quite small as there were 4 of us, 2 of whom were a married couple, 2 of us shared a twin room upstairs and it wasn't a room...

Hi, Thank you for your review we really appreciate your comments. We were delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found our staff to be friendly. We will pass on this postive feedback.

I love catching the ferry there, we ordered fish and chips, white bait and also some bruschetta. Fish and chips were delicious, white bait didn't like that much too chilli and bruschetta is with ricotta and zucchini not my favourite. The view is wonderful. Family day out would be beautiful in watsons bay

What a find! We normally stay in CBD and only booked Watson's Bay Boutique Hotel as our preferred 5* hotel in town was fully booked. Watsons Bay is a very good 4* with extremely welcoming staff, comfortable rooms with extraordinary views and a lovely complimentary breakfast. Parking is free of charge which is a great plus in Sydney. We certainly...

This was both a Wedding Reception and accommodation for our experience. The food was the best we have ever experienced at a wedding. The rooms were exquisite. High class quality and value for money. The location also provided the opportunity to explore the delightful shores of Watson's Bay, or amazing cliff views of the ocean. A must for overseas travellers...

WE stayed for 2 nights, the room was great, staff friendly (except for the Barista in the restaurant. Great views of the Harbour. It does get busy in the afternoon and evening so not suited for a romantic getaway in Spring or Summer as it was pretty noisy.

Thank you for your awesome review. I agree with your comments that the hotel does get busy from this time on year onwards so future visitors from October to March need to keep this in mind. The quiet rooms are on the sides of the hotel, the harbourview rooms are in a more vibrant (and potentially less quiet) spot. The...

Stopped for a couple of drinks after lunch next door and found the place to be quite vibrant with a friendly vibe. Staff were all happy and helpful. I was luck enough to match my shirt with the sun umbrellas so blended right in! Easy spot to spend a few hours.

This place is a weekend hotspot for those that want tasty tunes, good food and a free and easy atmosphere. The food and drinks menu is what you would expect of a up-market pub on the water. Not the cheapest meals but you are also paying for the position and experience. This close to the water I would opt for...

Anyone travelling to Sydney should experience the ferry ride to Watsons Bay and stop over for a stay at the Boutique Hotel. An amazing environment with fantastic rooms including breakfast. An absolutely stunning location and great service all round.
