“Our Sydney Home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Our family of four arrived after a long flight from Canada to be greeted by Keith, who welcomed us into his home with a friendly smile and a generous welcome. The house is absolutely amazing with stained glass windows, high ceilings, crown mouldings, and is beautifully renovated. There is a library and diningroom with a computer which guests may access any time. A sideboard holds sherry and por,t which I sometimes succombed to, and outside the dining room is a small intimate patio, which we used several times to entertain friends. Our room was large and airy, with a small garden patio, and tea/coffee facilities were provided. Breakfast was served in a sunny conservatory and the array of food options was mouthwatering. One day I told Maree I loved passionfruit and couldn't get them easily in Canada - the next morning, there were passionfruit in the large fruit bowl! Keith would give us maps of how to get to where we wanted to go and was always onhand to help us with tourist information and directions. The location of Simpsons is fabulous, with shops and restaurants around the corner, and is easy walking distance to downtown, the Domain, Art Gallery and The Rocks. If you're planning a trip to Sydney, forget the hotels and book in at Simpsons of Potts Point. You won't want to leave! Thanks Keith and Maree for making our stay so amazing!

What a pleasant Review. Thankyou.

We were all really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time at "Simpsons" so much.

It is very rewarding to us to receive a Review as positive as this. And yes, we also think that Potts Point is a wonderful, eclectic neighbourhood in which to stay, with all its great restaurants, cafes and little boutiques, and that lovely stroll into town.

Thanks again for your kind words.

Cheers....Keith and all the "Simpsons" team!

My partner and I had never been to Sydney before so we found the accommodation through wotif and saw a special rate going for the time we would be visiting. It looked promising but what we didn't realise was how helpful the staff would be, how gorgeous the historic house is, and what a great place it was in. Potts Point was a bit of a gamble for us since we didn't know the area, but everything was accessible either on foot (if you have sneakers on and plenty of time) or via the underground train and busses. At the end of a long day of seeing as much as we could, our cosy room up in the attic was an absolute haven and the easy breakfast system in the mornings meant we always got off to a good start. We may have taken a few pictures of the house itself for inspiration when we eventually build our own, or perhaps restore an old house.

Room Tip: We had what was the least expensive room and it was still great.

This was our fifth stay at Simpsons and fortunately nothing has changed. We had a different room this time, the Cloud Suite, a large spacious room at the front with the best bathroom of all the rooms we have stayed in at Simpsons. Actually, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms, although we have not yet experienced every one. As the other glowing reviews of Simpsons are accurate I need not repeat them. But for those who have not yet been, you will appreciate the location, which is convenient to the airport (about $40 taxi) and to local restaurants (Fratelli and Lotus right next door) and the Woloomoloo Wharf (incidentally the longest wooden structure in the world), a ten minute walk which does involve traversing what we now term the "stairs of death." We plan to return in August!

It was a memorable 2 night stay here...loved hopping down the steps to walk up to Victoria wharf and across the gardens to the Opera house!
Enjoyed breakfast at the sun deck ....
The room next to it is where we were put up, nice and cosy with a little balcony.
Theres a lovely little library where you can laze...
Kieth was very good with directing us to places and suggesting activities...
You step out and there are a lot of fine dine places and convenience stores.
Absolutely loved the stay!

Thankyou Sumi!

You summed us up very well, we think!

"Simpsons" is certainly situated in a great area....lots of fine-dining, or casual eating places all around, to suit all tastes and budgets.

I am glad that you found my travel hints helpful!

Thanks for staying, and thanks for the Review!
