“The Harbour Rocks hotel is one of our favourites with its style and you can’t beat the location in the heart of the Rocks! The staff are always extremely helpful and friendly too. The room was excellent with a view of the opera house…that was so good to wake up to on Australia…”
This was our fourth stay at the Harbour Rocks Hotel and it is always a comfortable experience. It is quiet, well located, the beds are comfortable and the Scarlet restaurant has delicious food.The staff are friendly and not pretentious and this time around we were given a lovely upgrade room. We enjoy the blend of decor from colonial to industrial, it is interesting and love that the Australian heritage has been preserved in such a way. We often tell our friends about our experience in this hotel and will definitely return on another occasion.
