    Great hotel. Best location possible, almost under the Harbour Bridge and within a short walk to The Rocks and the Opera House. The hotel was also really good with a nautical theme decor and I also had some great lamb cutlets for dinner the one night.

    Excellent location, superb hotel


    This is a superb hotel. Sydney is a magnificent city & this hotel is in an awesome location right under the harbor bridge. This is a renovated wharf / wool shed type hotel & has been marvellously done. The fittings and finishings are superb. The staff are so friendly & it is nice & quiet at night.

    The only downside was that I had a room facing the base of the bridge & had no water views. In a room facing the harbor, this would be a perfect hotel.

    Reasonably Pleased


    Fantastic location, and our room had wonderful views. Only a couple of negative comments, our safe seemed to have problems and this was never resolved. The service of our room was haphazard, sometimes no clean towels etc. Missed not having laundry facilities. Meals were fair, but adequate. Despite the problems, we would stay again, mainly for the location.

    Thoroughly enjoyed Pier One


    My wife and I just spent a lovely weekend at the Sebel Pier One in the Rocks area of Sydney. This was the last part of our grand 3 weeks in Australia and it was a great wrap-up. Pier One is in a perfect location for doing the sightseeing in Sydney. Located right next to Sydney's famous Bridge and a short walk to the Opera House made this an ideal location for us. We were able to jump onto the ferriers, trains or busses located right on the pier by Central Quay. The room that we were in had a specatular view of the bridge and it was the perfect size for us. The room was clean and the help from the staff was great. It was nice to be greeted everyday and everynight with a very warm good morning or good evening. We would recommend this hotel to anyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pier One.

    Fantastic Location


    The Sebel Pier One Hotel is situated in the perfect location to explore Sydney. Located directly under the Harbour Bridge, the hotel is in close proximity to The Rocks, Circular Quay and the Opera House.

    The hotel itself is a trendy warehouse conversion right on the water overlooking Walsh Bay. Great views from the bar and restaurant and an interesting glass panel on the floor in the bar area allowing sight of the water beneath you! The rooms are minimalistic in style with spacious glass/chrome bathroom. Its position means you can easily explore the attractions of Sydney by foot, it is close to many restaurants and bars and is so near to the start of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge climb, it helps to motivate you to take part. (An amazing experience - just be warned the start of the climb is more scary than when you get to the top - stick with it - it's worth it!) If I am lucky enough to come back to Sydney I would definitely stay here again.

    First class luxury


    this hotel was first class, the staff were very friendly and helpful, situated under the harbour bridge you could not be closer to all the main attractions, and entertainment. the hotel has an excellent breakfast buffet and the rooms are cleaned daily and include complimentary newspaper. Main Sydney shopping malls and Sydney's famous Skytower (fantastic views) are only a fifteen minute casual walk away. The very close harbour area offers ferry, rail and bus transportation to a variety of locations and attractions. The day tripper ticket allows you unlimited access to all transportation for the entire day for only $15, this was great value.

    New Year Delight


    We spent 5 nights at the Sebel over New Year and found it to be a first class hotel. It is in an excellent location within easy walking distance of The Rocks and Circular Quay. Had a lovely room with a small balcony overlooking Walsh Bay, beautiful view. We could not have picked a better location to spend New Years Eve, under the bridge with fireworks overhead - perfect! Hotel facilities were great and the restaurant was excellent. Recommended!

    Superb situation


    We spent 8 nights in this wonderful hotel. Our room was extremely comfortable and spacious with excellent views over Walsh Bay. The hotel is in a great location for seeing the city and with a few minutes walk of some superb restaurants. Having said that, do try the hotel restaurant as well which was excellent value.

    Great Hotel in a great City


    This is a really good hotel. The location under the bridge is superb and the views over the water are great. The rooms are very cool, the bathroom in particular was very trendy, glass and chrome everywhere.

    The breakfasts were good and it was nice to be able to sit outside overlooking the water whilst eating. The staff were very friendly and made the stay most enjoyable. Would recommend as a great base for exploring the city.

    Superb hotel, superb location


    If you want to stay right on the water, under the bridge, in a fabulous location in Sydney, then Pier One is the plave to be. Within easy walking distance of Circular Quay, Bridgeclimb, The Rocks etc, etc, opposite Luna Park, this hotel and the staff are top notch.

    The warehouse conversion is fabulous, rooms are gorgeous and the experience is superb.

    Fully recommend you stay here.

    No complaints. Hotel, breakfast buffet and location were excellent.

    On my last day in Sydney I went to Darling Harbour and the Aquarium. The aquarium was not impressive especially after it had been talked up in all of their promo material on the Internet. This was actually quite surprising. Anyway Darling Harbour is a very pleasant place for a visit and there are some really good shopping malls on the western side …

    I took a bus out to Bondi Beach early to avoid the rush later on in the day. I need not have worried. The cold wind that was really pumping kept most people away from the beach even though the sun was shining. The beach is beautifully clean and white and the sea is a deep blue. A really great beach. I had an excellent lunch at a small place just …

    I arrived at the hotel quite late with just enough time to take a stroll under the Harbour Bridge and along the boardwalk to The Rocks, a very popular waterfront area with a number of restaurants and bars. The sun was setting behind the Opera House and this provided some excellent views of the harbour, the rocks area and the Opera House.

    Formal Warning

    ... our flat twice. We are not in their good books. In fact, there was a lovely email in my inbox by 10 o'clock Monday morning requesting that myself and flatmate Maui meet with Housing about the 'social gathering'. Felt like I was being summoned to the head teachers office. We held our hands up to it, which was greatly appreciated, and the formal warning they said we'd get may well have been swept under the carpet unless it's waiting in the postbox that we never ...
