Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow. What a gorgeous historic Hotel. We stayed in The Reggie James room & was just beautiful. Magnificent views of the Harbour Bridge. Staff were just beautiful, friendly & accommodating. Didnt eat but what food we saw looked delicious. Henry Deane on the top floor was unbelievable, views to die for.Extra shout out to the Hotel Manager Holli, she was exceptional. Totally rate this hotel & staff.

We had a wonderful reunion party at PUSH couple of weeks ago for 35 ex-colleagues. Stunning views. Excellent service. Great food and wines. Loved the potato with abalone sauce. Natalie, Jacky, Camilla and Ben were all very professional. Highly recommend

Had a Xmas party here on weekend. Beautiful views from balcony even though it rained on and off and rooms were lovely. Very surprised though that they only had boutique beers or pale ales and none of the standard beers and food was very disappointing. Stayed in one of the rooms which also had lovely views but quite expensive seeing as you couldn't swing a cat in the room as it was so small.

Nice boutique hotel in a ?historic building. Good location for walking distance to Quay and The Rocks for fit guests, though some construction and poor signposting can make the walk tricky. Rooms are fine though small. Best mattress we have had in a long while in a boutique hotel. Main drawback is the noise, as all guest rooms are close to street, to car horns, party goers etc can be very loud at times (to be expected in this city location)

The room was very quaint and beautifully appointed with a good shower. The staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Our flight was delayed so we were arriving after hours and Jen waited for us to arrive to help us in even after she had messaged us and given us instructions for the key box. On checking out we needed to leave our luggage and again the staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful especially as we had so many bags as we were bringing extras for our daughter!

We came here to try the rooftop bar during Vivid before going on to see the Vivid Festival events. It was very busy and they seated us at a table outside on the terrace. No menus were provided. After 10 minutes we went up to the bar and asked for a menu. We were promptly told it was table service, given some menus and informed someone would come to our table for our order. We waited another 15 minutes. Not even a hint of someone coming out for a drinks order was forthcoming. I went up to the bar again and was told to wait for table service. After another 10 minutes, l gave up and went elsewhere. Shame, because the view up there on the rooftop bar is spectacular and the menu sounded great. Its a beautiful heritage hotel with a lot of character. I'm just less tolerant of poor service after a few bad experiences in Sydney during Vivid week. I get that the industry is suffering and its difficult to get enough staff. However, we were in Melbourne the week prior to Sydney and service there was considerably better in all venues and I'm sure they are suffering from the same staff shortages there too.

On the two higher floors, Henry Deane is a venue with a lovely view of Sydney Harbour - it’s a great place for a special occasion. My companion and I came here to celebrate my birthday. We enjoyed Abalone Potato, Patty Pans (but this was not what we expected - we thought it would be individual pieces, but it wasn’t), Prawn Tails and a really nice Shiraz. It was a lovely evening - make sure you go out on the balcony, another lovely experience. The whole thing was delightful. Thank you.

Absolutely fantastic. Only way I can describe the Hotel Pallisade experience. Quiet location on the reserve of The Rocks, this old pub has been transformed into a swank rocking joint. Ground floor pub with both outdoor and indoor seating, upper level accommodation (two floors) then upper level bar and restaurant. Sounds pretty simple but sometimes simple is the best. Rooms modern albeit small but perfect for a getaway night - views north to the harbour and south to the Mecca of the city. Oddly enough incredibly quiet and a stones throw from bars, restaurants and all city activities. Restaurant on the top floor is a must and definitely book well in advance. Can’t rate highly enough and will return next year for another round. Enjoy!!!

Great location on the harbour. Laura found us a table at rooftop and was so amazing 🥂. more suited for a drink for 2 rather than a group of 6 gals on the town. Beautiful cocktails on offer & stunning views.
