We needed to choose a Hotel where we could spend the last few days, in the Sydney area, of our trip to Australia. We had already stayed in the city and now we wanted a different location. We chose the Watson Bay Boutique Hotel.
We liked the room which was spacious; we liked the Hotel, which had a glorious view at the back of the Hotel and into the distance; we liked the Australian continental breakfast, which covered our needs, with the possibility of ordering extra, payable, cooked items. We found all the staff very empathetic and helpful and we had some interesting conversations.
As we stayed during the week, we could take advantage of some of the deals, which my wife did. There were vegetarian choices, but I could have done with more and it would have been nice if one of the deals had been a vegetarian deal.
However, there were great views towards Sydney, which became particularly good as the light faded and the distant buildings turned their lights on.
We are very happy to record this Hotel. We would all suggest that anyone staying considers walking to Dover Heights for a wonderful view of Sydney. Amazing!

Hi Robin,

Loved your review thank you so much! I agree that the quieter weekdays are magic at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel. I especially love this time of year as the soft Autumn light makes the views even more beautiful. So glad you had the chance to enjoy our hotel and location. Hope to see you back soon.
Warmest regards

The Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel is in an incredible location with great natural beauty all around.
We stayed there to celebrate a wedding anniversary & were thrilled to be given a bottle of bubbles as part of our welcome! The staff were friendly & helpful, noise was not a problem as some others have experienced, the room was lovely & breakfast was varied & plentiful.
We would return anytime!

A lovely hotel in a beautiful location. The room was excellent- comfy bed and a nice strong, hot shower. We were disappointed with the included breakfast. The continental breakfast was great but no real hot food options - pancakes and frittata that had gone cold. Many of our party ordered breakfast from the a la carte menu and that looked fabulous. We just thought that the room rate warranted a good included breakfast. Parking was included but not regulated so some of our group were not able to park in or near the hotel. Having said that we would not hesitate to stay there again.

Hi Natalie,

Fabulous news that your enjoyed your stay and would stay again. Our room rate does include a generous continental breakfast in the beautiful Sunset Room or Beach Club Dinning, please accept my apologises for the cold pancakes (normally made to order) and the frittata. Thank you also for the feedback about the car parking. We have 29 complimentary spaces which are allocated on a first in first served basis. We endeavor to keep this simple so that we don't have to charge guest for parking like most Sydney hotels.There is a 90 space free non- timed car park across the road and all street parking is also free. It should be noted if you arrive around lunch time the parking can be in high demand especially on weekends, at other times car parking is ample. Hopefully these comments will assist other guests.
Thank you for taking the time to provide a review we really appreciate it.
Warmest regards

We enjoyed this thoroughly. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was great. Love the pancake machine! We were able to get to Bondi Beach easily and there was an option to use the bus from there as well.
