I had a lovely lunch fun atmosphere and friendly staff. The area is great with views and hikes. The village is so nice. I always brought friends here via the ferry from Sydney Harbours. Check schedule because last one back is pretty early if I remember correctly.

In the heart of Watson's Bay this hotel is great value and in a fantastic location. 20 mins by bus to Bondi and a short ferry to the Sydney CBD. This would be the perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway or short holiday however there aren't many cheap food options in the area. We spent one night here...

We stayed at this boutique hotel on Sunday night. Our room (108) was modern, clean, quiet and large, so much so that that the furniture looked sparse. The view from our room balcony was excellent and you could not wish for better. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were especially hard. The room was opposite the laundry and there...

We dropped into the Watson's Bay Hotel mid-afternoon to find there were still places available for a late lunch. We had a lovely table looking down Sydney Harbour towards the city skyscrapers. The barman was friendly and helpful and we quickly had our delicious lunch and cool drinks on the table. While a DJ was playing in the Beach Club...

Lovely local/tourist spot in Watsons Bay.....great views of the Harbor and a DJ was spinning on Sat. The hot chips are a myst. We weathered a thunderstorm but the atmosphere never died down. Enjoy the drinks, food and sights. You can catch a ferry to the city as well.

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is riding PURELY on the back of its location. My story is too long and convoluted to place on here. However it ends with staff messing up our booking, a staff member telling my wife that she never made a booking and even though my wife produced a booking reference number she then tells my wife...

We wanted to book in the CBD but harbour view rooms were prohibitively expensive. We decided to look for somewhere close to a ferry stop and his place is right at the end of the Watsons Bay wharf - a 20 minute ferry ride to the CBD. We chose a room with a view over the harbour and were not...
