    The owners took personal interest in the clients. The room was ready ahead of time and their information with maps and brochures was excellent. They offered free wi-fi which was also a big help with airline reservations and e-mail home to the US! Thank you

    Very good

    Quaint bed and breakfast. Friendly owner. Beautiful old house and very nice location.

    No elevator -- had to carry luggage to 3rd floor. No room service or exercise room. It's a bed a breakfast which wasn't clear from the website. If you're looking for a full service hotel, you'll be disappointed.

    Fabulous

    The staff were brilliant - all on hand with hints, tips and suggestions for places to go and things to do. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was comfortable, clean and spacious and the whole hotel was charming.

    The daily 6am dustbin collections outside our window, and the people who felt it necessary to rev their engines to the maximum when driving past in the small hours. Travellers who are not broad-minded should also consider avoiding the nearby Kings Cross area (Potts Point itself is lovely).

    Superb

    Reminded us of our home, very cosy and welcoming. Location was pretty good; a reasonable walk to the centre of Sydney through the botanical gardens until early evening and close to public transport and local Kings X shops.

    Superb

    Tranquility, style, friendly staff. Easy, free and stable wifi.

    Steep direct pedestrian access to CBD may not appeal to the elderly or immobile but otherwise an easy 15 minutes to the Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens. Limited parking.

    Lovely small "b&b" hotel. The building itself is historic and beautiful. It has a charming sitting area with free computer access. Our room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Ree was extremely helpful in helping us with directions and suggestions. I appreciated her being there to say good-bye when our cab arrived to leave for the airport. Just a small touch, but nice. The location was excellent. We found good restaurants and shops nearby. I would definitely suggest Simpsons to anyone traveling to Sydney.

    A different experience, more personal/homely/relaxed/classy/quiet/intimate to that of the traditional hotel stay.

    Fabulous

    This hotel is very charming and such a better choice than a large chain hotel. Being located in the Potts Point neighborhood is a plus, with easy walking to the harbor, museums, the botanic garden and nearby shopping and dining locations.

    The hotel can be a little noisy with people coming and going. Next time I would ask for a room on the top floor, if possible.

    Good

    Unsophisticated and casual. Very classy public room(s) - good breakfast facilities and service.

    Bedroom was scruffy with no wardrobe space and no drawer space. Hotel advertised "Free WiFi throughout" but it proved impossible to maintain any kind of effective connection, anywhere. When mentioned to the owner it produced a shrug of the shoulders !!!

    Simpsons is a very nicely appointed small hotel in an excellent location, but what makes it sparkle are the inn keepers Ree and Damien. Their energetic attention to detail and their graciousness is unparalleled.

    heritage building. close to good restaurants.

    poor standard of continental breakfast.DIY toast presliced packet bread, marmalade/jam and butter in small peeltop containers as with inflight meals.no croissant or danish pastry. A small courtesy packet of biscuits togo with tea and coffee in the room would be appropriate as would some minibar facility.I also think towelling dressing gowns and disposable slippers could be provided in this category - Luxury Boutique Hotel.
