    We loved that the property is heritage listed, the rooms are styled in keeping with the period, they are large and very comfortable. The bathroom is very clean. Ou hostess Ree was fabulous and very welcoming. The location is great. We’ll definitely stay again.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This is a lovely, old B& B with much character. The hosts are gracious, friendly and helpful. The front room (room where you can relax, read, etc) is tastefully decorated suited to the age of the house. Music for relaxation is piped into this room. The breakfast provides a good range of healthy options. This is a self service (except for coffee and tea) breakfast. While hard boiled eggs are available, I would have appreciated being served something other than self serve - e.g. pancakes or choice eggs The rooms (we stayed in 2 different rooms) are not as tastefully decorated like the reception room. While the furniture is adequate, it would be nice if there were a few pieces that reflected the charm of this old house. This is an old house but some of the maintenance has not been kept up. Taps drip. The caulking in tub and shower is missing in spots and black in others. This should not have any impact on your stay but I thought knowing this in advance may help you with your choice There are pluses and negatives about the location. This is a quiet location out of the downtown area. Dining is very close and you have a wide range of choices. You can also choose from a wide range of takeouts. I recommend that you are good at walking if you stay here or be prepared to take taxis. It takes 30 - 40 minutes to walk to the quay and opera house. Coming back, you have to climb 106 steps. We took a taxi a couple of time (about $16 per trip)

    The Simpson is located in a quiet street in Potts Point and has an elegance about it that cant be found in a modern hotel. The decor is superbly interesting and my room and bed were perfectly comfortable. The care and hospitality extended by Keith was quite refreshing and the breakfast room was divine. Lovely experience all round

  • 6.0.Good

    This simple little hotel is in a great location, their communication prior to our arrival was good and they were kind enough to let us check in early as we arrived in the morning long haul from England. The WIFI was very poor which was disappointing and difficult for forward planning and communication with our friends and family. We were also a little disappointed by the staff's lack of provision for an early breakfast as we left for an early flight at 7am.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Fabulous B&B style accommodation in Potts Point. We had a fantastic, spacious room with a balcony. The bathroom was well appointed and had everything you’d need. Restaurants are about 50m away and the main shopping thoroughfare just around the corner but the area of the Hotel is very quiet. Walkable to Sydney CBD. Highly recommend
