Fodor's Review

If your idea of heaven is sleeping above a pub that brews its own boutique beers (or ales, as they're rightly called) then this is the place. The hotel, hewn from Sydney sandstone, has been a popular watering hole with Sydneysiders and visitors for decades. Built in the early 1840s, the building has recently been restored to its former grandeur. While the nine guest rooms and the first-floor Lord Nelson Brasserie restaurant have exposed sandstone walls, their fittings

and decor are very contemporary. Seven standard rooms have en-suite bathrooms and cost A$200 a night; a smaller room with ensuite bathroom is A$180 a night, while one room has a bathroom that's located a short walk across the hall (costing A$180). All rates include continental breakfast. The hotel is a stroll from the Harbour Bridge. The bar is always busy on Friday nights and most weekends as the craft beer is excellent.
