Great casual setting, to enjoy really good fish and chips. The terrace had great views, not too busy so our meals came out quickly. Really nice cocktail carafes to share. Fish and chips and salad definitely hit the mark.

This is a nice chill out day for a few drinks and feed . The prices and service reasonable . But do young upstart yuppies have to bring their dam great big dogs and prams and expect others to graciously accept them . This should be a dog free zone especially on a crowded Saturday afternoon. These idiots have nil...

Lovely hotel and staff, beautiful views, free bike hire. Foyer was warm and smelt lovely. Room service was fantastic! We drove here from Melbourne so had a car to easily get around however those dependant on the ferry may find it hard to get around as the ferry ends early. Then again, with such a pleasant stay there, who would...

After a couple of hours exploring Watsons Bay, and before lunch, it was time for a chill beer and I found this Bar at the Hotel. A chill pint of Tooheys Old Dark Ale went down very well.... They do meals including daily specials but I was looking for some seafood elsewhere. A decent bar with background music, a Pool...

Family arrived and were seated by a pleasant happy person. Ordered food with specific details of no chile in one meal; asked for alternative which was said to be no problem. Food arrived and on the one meal no chile was expected; quizzed waiter about alternative dressing: she looked at us as we were from outer space; she was vague...

We had a spacious loft room for four people with amazing harbour views. Our room was very comfortable and we had a fun and relaxing stay. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The bar and restaurant areas are great. We loved the food at dinner and the generous continental breakfast.

Stayed at the hotel with a group of girlfriends from around the country. Hotel beautifully renovated and staff very helpful. The beach club at the front on weekends is packed and pretty noisy but it all shuts down at a reasonable hour. Rooms around the side don't have as greater view but are quieter. Tea tray with biscuits was a...

Extremely charming hotel with outstanding views of the Sydney skyline. Highly recommend staying in one of the rooms with ocean view, probably the best view we've ever had from a hotel room. A very down to earth kind of feel where everything down to the little signs at the breakfast buffet has a personal touch. Nice friendly atmosphere, very kid...

Relaxed reception and dining area. Rooms are slighted faded but comfortable enough. Bed linen is poor quality and needs an upgrade. Lovely tea tray but no bottled water in the room. No minibar either. The bar/kitchen/dining on the waterfront is super cute but there is NO service at all. Staff are young and inexperienced. All appeared to be international backpackers...

Hi, Thank you for your review, we value your very valid comments. It is good for all visitors to be aware that we are a casual dining venue where you do order at the bar and collect your meal when it is ready. We are a very large venue and we do find that on most occasions this allows us...
