“Home from Home”
Reviewed 13 June 2011

Ree at Simpsons saved me. I arrived in Sydney late at night, following a longhaul flight from the UK. My company had booked me into a hotel which on arrival I immediately knew I couldn't hack for the 5 days worth of business in Sydney that I had. A quick search on the internet and a phone call to Simpsons immediately rescued me and I found myself in the best safe haven ever found. Gorgeous, comfortable, spacious rooms. Great location for work and leisure. Just all round wonderful. They remember everyone by name, make a point of ensuring that they can't help you with your day, make you feel at home (so much so that I'm sure that one of the guests used to come to breakfast in his pyjamas). The sitting room, with burning coal fire, was also a place of comfortable refuge. Fresh coffee readily provided. I just felt very comfortable, very at home, and, as a single woman travelling on business, very safe. On one evening when I'd had enough of dinners and lunches, I brought back a bottle of wine and snack to the room and they didn't bat an eyelid at providing me with chopping knives, plates, napkins, salt and pepper etc ... even though I did pop down to fetch them from the kitchen in my pjs! A genuinely lovely team. However, if you want to remain anonymous, be left in total peace, and have a penchant for dark, supercool boutique style hotels - this is definitely not the place for you.

We stayed here on a quick visit to Sydney to catch up with family & friends. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Having lived in Sydney previously I had always thought it would be a great place to stay - it is! Ree, Keith and Marie were so friendly & very knowledgable about everything happening in Sydney that weekend. Many thanks - we'll be back!

Great room, quiet neighbourhood, easy access to everything, fantastic cafes/restaurants in walking distance - in fact just a few doors away. Lots of friendly, concerned service and informed advice re: getting about Sydney. Lovely breakfast room and a generous breakfast. Access to a sitting room and full bathroom even once we had checked out and were waiting for flights. And to top it all off - free wifi - which made for a very happy teenage boy.

Our first impressions of Simpsons was from the lovely, friendly emails from Keith when making our booking. Following the directions given it was easy to find from Kings Cross Station. On entering Simpsons it has a warm feeling, more like a country house than a city hotel. It was easy to walk through the Botanical Gardens to the Opera House and to the main attractions. We had excellent restaurant recommendations from Ree and felt that she couldn't do enough for us. Not sure of the waiter's name at breakfast but he ran everything very efficiently and quietly. We shall certainly return to Simpsons, so much more personal than your big corporate chain hotels.

Room Tip: The back of the hotel though noise is minimal

Great location near shops, supermarket and restaurants. Booked online with www.byojet.com got an excellent rate much less than Expedia or direct.
