Three grand 1870s terraces have been blended together to create one of Sydney’s most elegant small hotels.

The 16 guest rooms and four luxurious suites are individually styled with modern furniture, rich drapes and contemporary Australian artwork. The property does not have a restaurant, but guests do have the use of a charming breakfast room, an honesty bar and small library. The hotel does offer a la carte breakfast, plus complimentary drinks and canapes each evening.

Potts Point is a trendy, upscale residential suburb where the locals hang out in excellent restaurants and cafes. It’s an easy train hop or taxi to the city centre, so easy to access the main city sights, but benefits from also being close to the beautiful harbour bays, for walking, sailing, kayaking and swimming.

Surrounding area

Victoria Street is a quiet, leafy street of elegantly restored terrace houses, with buildings dating back to the 1850s.
