Lord Nelson Brewery Hotel 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 of the rooms have en-suite bathrooms and cost A$190 a night with Continental breakfast; the other two double bedrooms share a bathroom and are competitively priced at $130 a night, including breakfast. The hotel is a short walk from the Harbour Bridge, and the bar is always busy on Friday nights and most weekends.
