      Historical Traveler Reviews Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour

      Great view


      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.

      Nowhere better


      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.

      Checked in to our hotel, which was very modern and our room very small, even by European standards (good thing I specifically booked the "Deluxe King Room"), but it had everything you could want and a few things completely unexpected, like an IPad in our room for our personal use. Again, the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful - we're surmising that this is just the Aussie way. They set a great example for us all. We decided, having not had lunch, to go grab a ...

      ... box of dinner goodies had been delivered for the week! We've been getting the ingredients for 3 meals a week delivered by a company called Hello Fresh. They basically construct a menu for the week, and then deliver exactly what you need, in the exact amounts so that you can cook it yourself. We like it because we hate deciding what to cook for dinner so this makes the decision for us, and we don't have to worry about not having the right herbs or whatever, cause we get those ...

      This fountain is a reasonably large body of water, large by Sydney standards, that wraps around Tumbalong park oval. There are several rectangular/curved pools of water that connect around the oval's edge. Each pool has its own feature - which could be jets of water, stepping stones or plain old ...

      A very lazy day today I must say. We woke earlyish and then dozed on and off until brekky was delivered by room service. We also snacked from the cafe before brekky arrived. Once we were sorted we collected day and hit the onboard shops. Dad got his Glenfiddich and we got presents for the girls. Then it was time for more coffee and returned to the cabin for another rest. Very easy for me today. So much so that each time I laid down I ...
