It Doesn't Get any Better A review of Simpsons of Potts Point Hotel
Simpson's is simply Sidney's best for reasons of location, comfort, style, taste, amenities and staff. We travel the world constantly staying in budget specials and palaces...price is never our first consideration. We like interesting places well located. Simpson's is a beautiful Victorian mansion furnished thankfully not with Victorian stuff, but rather Georgian. The rooms are all rather grand from the entry to the lounge to the master living room to the regular spacious rooms which have terrific bathrooms with powerful showers and endless hot water. Maid service is unobtrusive and efficient. This place is spotless. Complimentary port, sherry and internet grace the lounge. Breakfast is juice, toast, fruits, yogurt and cereals and the morning papers- all served in a cheery glass atrium. The three person management team is amusing, informed, constantly helpful and never underfoot. You feel as though this is your own home. While not inexpensive, the rate is remarkably underpriced for its level of service and comfort. The location is simply dynamite in one of Sydney's best neighborhoods with a plethora of restaurants nearby. Front the street you can view the harbor and the opera house and everything is within walking distance - through the lovely botanical gardens filled with exotic birds. Of the hundreds of places we have stayed throughout the world this has to be in the top 5.
