We stayed in a suite at this hotel between Christmas and new years - so possibly one of the busiest times. The pub is open 24 hours per day during this period for the boats finishing the Sydney to Hobart race. Not once were we disturbed by anybody having drinks in the pub or outside The suite was spacious -...

I had two hotels booked in this wonderful city and after constantly checking reviews decided to keep Customs House. A lovely old hotel/pub. Our room was directly above the bar and quite noisy at night. It didn't really bother me but did my husband. Checked with reception and were able to change to upper level still overlooking the harbour. Breakfast...

We stayed for two nights. Rooms are reasonable in size. Basic fit out - everything you need. Comfortable bed and a great hot shower. Breakfast comes with the room rate. 👍 The only item I would improve on is the old fashioned wall mounted hair dryer. They are not great. Rate: $180/night (incl breakfast).

Excellent quality / price ratio: greatly located, rooms with a lot of space, simple deco but very nice, very comfortable beds, good breakfast, easy to park closed by. And next door is a very good bakery.

This is a great location on the waterfront close to many eateries and a short walk to shops.The quirkiness of the old building with the ups and downs of its internal stairways and rough sandstone internal walls, is a reminder of the building's history of licence since 1846. Despite its history, the rooms are modern,comfortable and spacious. Loved the included...

We recently stayed here for four nights. The location is right on the waterfront and an easy walk to shops and restaurants. We arrived at 8pm on a Saturday night hoping to be able to get a few provisions, but found the local convienence stores were closed. The hotel room didn't have any form of minibar only tea and coffee...

My partner booked a standard queen room three months out from our stay. Our initial check-in was great and the staff came across as friendly and helpful. Once we got to our room however, it did not resemble what we had been shown when it was originally booked. Our bedroom was tiny, with a double bed which was comfortable (although...

What a great morning at the unofficial watering hole of the Sydney To Hobart Yacht Race. The wheelchair access is in place and all bars and restaurants are accessible. Staff very friendly and the beer was cold. Great views of the waterways. The hotel is on a busy corner but road works have helped with the introduction of safe access...

We recently spent 2 nights (Friday, Saturday) here. The room was quite nice, the bed was comfortable and I really liked the bathroom. The downfalls were that there was quite a bit of noise on the Friday night from a band playing nearby which went till quite late. The other downfall was the lack of parking, the website says there...
