Our focus was a family celebration, and we missed in house breakfasts due to other commitments, but I would like to re-visit the hotel to make better use of the guest amenities: spacious lounge with fully equipped bathroom, continental breakfast, maps, guides, and the very helpful...

Simpsons is a nice alternative to the glass and glitter of the modern hotel chains. Built in the late 1800s, it has an interesting history, and now provides very comfortable accommodation. Situated in Potts Point, it is also a nice alterative to being in the city or rocks areas, yet still very assessable to both, as well as Woolloomooloo, Elizabeth...

Hello Fun-times! Thanks for your succinct and interesting Review, which I think describes very well our little Hotel, and the eclectic Potts Point neighbourhood ! Unless you need to stay right in the CBD, Potts Point is a great alternative, being Sydney's "Restaurant HQ", yet only 15-mins. stroll to the City!
