Historical Traveler Reviews Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour
Had a three night stay in a two bedroom harbour view apartment. The view was breath taking. The rooms weren't bad either. Room service was excellent and great value for money.
The only slight draw back is that the harbour is a buzzing area so expect some noise from bars. Even so I would still stay there again.
Needs to work out the bugs
There are many nice things to say about this hotel. The view from the harbor view apartments is stunning. The staff and restaurant are both quite pleasant. There is space for families, especially in the two bedroom apartments. The kitchen appears to be quite nice.
Unfortunately, there are also some problems. The housekeeping is not up to snuff in any way. We found dirty socks under the bed belonging to some previous guest. The socks were covered in dust indicating that there had been no vacuuming under there in quite some time. The furniture was not in particularly good shape either, as the upholstery looked rather well worn. Towels are average, and not what you would expect in this price range.
My most upsetting complaint, however, was that our apartment had cockroaches. I killed about 10-12 one night. I know Sydney is notorious for cockroaches. However, at these prices (which I was happy to pay for a good experience), the Quay Grand needs to take care of the problem. I have never before seen cockroaches in my hotel room, and we have stayed in many countries where you might expect them. The Quay Grand did move us the following night, at our request, but were not apologetic about the inconvenience. I noticed that our old room was occupied the night after we left, and I wondered what the Quay Grand did to alleviate the roach problem. At the very least, the new occupants should have been exposed to a lot of bug spray.
We loved the view from our room, and the room suited us space-wise, but we probably will look for somewhere else next time we are in Sydney. The Quay Grand has great potential, but needs to work out the bugs-no pun intended.
A home away from home!
Stayed at Quay Grand in sydney June 2005 in the Garden room. The apartment room have everything from two TV's to a full kitchen and a lush spa! Apartment was spotless and very comfy. I would definatley recommend staying in the water view room as the garden view room did not really look oevr a nice garden. It also proved very frustrating knowing you had one of the worlds most beautiful harbours and couldn't admire it when you wanted to.
Definately would stay again.
We have stayed 3 times at this hotel - our only complaint is that it gets booked up particularly at peak times. We have stayed on the front - breathtaking and on the back still atmospheric. There is no greater location on the planet!!!!!
Sydney Harbour balcony view
We stayed here for our wedding night and we had the best view while eating breakfast from our balcony...what else but the Sydney Harbour Bridge, right next to Circular Quay.
I greatly recommend it to anyone!
Fabulous location and facilities
Stayed for 4 nights here and it is the most stunning location for a hotel - very accomodating with the kids too. Staff very friendly and great to have a kitchen with everything! would stay again if someone else is paying!
Perfect spot for 1st time Sydney visitors from anywhere
I always go back
I used to be a frequent guest at sister property Quay West till Quay Grand opened. The name is pretentious but everything else is perfect, and I haven't stopped going back. Being accustomed to the views of the harbor and the bridge these days I tend to stay in the garden view rooms as Macquary Street is much quieter than Quay East, and the apartments on that side are $100 cheaper too. If the apartments were just a touch bigger I could stay forever. My wife feels remorse everytime she thinks how we toyed with buying one of the apartments when they were launched!
Excellent value and location
Our family of four (two adults, one 5 year old and one 10) stayed at the Quay Grand for seven nights in August and were extremely happy with the choice. We had a one bedroom suite overlooking the Circular Quay and the Harbour Bridge. Our children slept on a queen-size sofa sleeper in the living area. A full kitchen (necessary cooking utensils, appliances and dinnerware included) and dining table allowed us to dine in, especially for breakfast and a few dinners. Room service is available all day off of a limited but tasty menu. Although we were directly over the hustle and bustle of the main harbor, the room was surprisingly quiet. A balcony with two chairs and a table make for an enjoyable perch in warmer weather for watching the constant parade of ship traffic below and sunsets over the Bridge. The location is terrific with immediate access to the great public transportation options (subway, buses and ferries) that allow one to visit most parts of the city. The botanical gardens are directly across the street on the other side of the hotel and the Opera House is a five minute stroll along the arcaded edge of the harbor. The financial center and main shopping district are an easy uphill stroll (fifteen minutes), too.
Room decor is modern and, although the unit is not very large, it is cleverly subdivided by a curving wall that opens up the views from the living room and allows for built in closets and storage areas on the bedroom side. We considered all luxury hotels in the area and, after investigating them, would return to the Quay Grand; it felt more like our private pied a terre than a hotel.
Best hotel in the World!!
Must stress that I didn't pay to stay here (company paid for it!!) as there's no way I could afford it! It's the best place I've ever stayed, the views of the harbour from the rooms are amazing. Was lucky enough to be here for 2 weeks and it felt like my home. If you get the chance, stay here!!
Excellent location. Beautiful five star property.
This is a top choice in Sydney.

... no seats in front of us and plenty of legroom. Oh, and our chocolates were a hit! One flight attendant came over and was so thankful saying "no one ever gives us anything, other than grief." They showered us with gifts, champagne, flight socks and noise cancelation headphones. The head flight attendant came up to us at the end of the flight to thank us for the chocolates and handed us a bottle of wine! What?! We are never going on another international flight without our ...
... on the flat below, climbed up and got in the back door to find both Katie and Joes keys inside. During the week we checked out a lot more of Sydney walking a stupid amount almost daily seeing not only the main sights of Circular Quays but also checking out Darling Harbour, Bondi, Chinatown and getting the ferry to beautiful Watsons bays and then into the iconic harbour. On the Tuesday evening while Emma and Katie went to the cinema to ...
Yesterday was a very full day of sightseeing in Sydney! I got up pretty early, around 5:30 and was downstairs in the lobby around 6 AM. I'd had trouble connecting to the wifi the night before, but early in the morning with no one else around I finally got on. So that was good.
Had breakfast in the hostel at 7 AM and talked to the guy at the reception about what I should see in two days in Sydney. He gave me some advice and I headed out of ...

... wire, they represented all aspects of the Chinese and were illuminated after dusk. We got there a bit early but decided to hang out and people watch until they were lit up. It was rather interesting to see all the Asian families in their finest wear stopping by for visits. Our favorite was a little girl in a red silk dress that we dubbed Chub Chub for her pudgy little legs and cheeks. I soooo wanted to snap her picture, but there was never a good opportunity (and I was ...
