Incredible and Romantic Stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 20, 2009

Simpson’s is one of the best hotel stays. Actually it’s more of a boutique type B&B in a quaint Victorian house in the Potts Point section of Sydney. The hotel has several suites with their own unique personality and décor. Chris and I stayed in the Cloud Suite and it was heavenly and romantic.

We arrived via cab to Simpsons where Damien greeted us at the door after we rang the bell. He showed us around the first floor of the hotel which consisted of a solarium breakfast/tea area, sitting room, library and living room. The décor was amazing with grand styled mirrors, plush furnishings and lovely accent pieces.

There were two more floors of guest suites and we were situated on the second floor.
The Cloud Suite was incredible and I loved it immediately. The ceilings were incredibly high and the room was full of light from the huge windows with stained glass accents. There was a nice fireplace with a mantle and a large mirror. The wardrobe was huge and big enough to fit all of our clothing and our suitcases. Thee wardrobe also had a full ironing board, iron, hairdryer, extra blankets and pillows. There was a TV with DVD player and a nice collection of DVD’s. Right under the TV was the mini bar/fridge. Our suite came with a box of chocolates ad a bottle of champagne so we bopped the already chilled champagne in the fridge for later. The couch was right in front of the main windows and very comfortable. The coffee table had various magazines strew across it from fashion, travel and local happenings. The bed was very comfortable and was some of the best sleep I’ve ever had. The bathroom was a bit on the old fashioned side with small black and white tiles and stark white fixtures. The large steam shower and huge Jacuzzi tub was my favorite.

Included in our stay was a light breakfast served in the solarium. It was a buffet spread of breads, cereal, and canned fruits and some fresh fruit along with juice and tea/coffee. The breakfast wasn’t bad but it was no Pancakes in the Rocks. The main office is off to the side of the solarium where the staff is eager to give you any advice on events, attractions and Sydney life. The service and staff made us feel as if we were family and not guests. It was a wonderful experience and better than I could have i

Unique Quality: The large jacuzzi bathtub was a big highlight for me. We enjoyed many a bubble bath after a long day of sightseeing.

The bed was extremely comfortable and it was some of the best sleeping experiences.

The chocolates and champagne upon arrival was a nice touch. It was a large bottle of chapagne and we enjoyed sippingit while taking a relaxing bubble bath. Thhe choclate swere quite nice in delicate shapes.

The in-room fridge was also appreciated. We often brough drinks or desserts back to the room for later and I was happy to have a place to store them.

Excellent Small Place

This was one of my best ever hotel stays, perhaps because it is not your typical hotel. Set up with several rooms that they call suites each is quite unique and individual. We were in the Cloud Suite which consisted of the main bedroom with queen sized bed and also a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and stand alone shower.

Check in was a breeze in that there really is no check in. We arrived and rang from the front door to Damien that we were there. He buzzed us in and came out to meet us. Showed us around a little which really meant the living/sitting room then up to our room. This was on the 1st floor (2nd in America) facing the street. Here he left us to ourselves, and left the registration card for us to “bring down in the morning at breakfast, no rush.”

The room itself was quite amazing. I did not measure the size but would say that it is about 14 by 21 feet or so. From the door facing the window and street you have the wardrobe and TV along the left wall. Inside the wardrobe we found a full ironing board, iron and hair dryer as well as extra blankets and pillows and room to hang our clothes. Under the TV you find the refrigerator with mini bar and also a DVD player with a fairly large selection of DVDs. In front of the window is the couch and in the right side corner the chair. The bed is on the right wall and is one of the most comfortable I’ve ever been in.

The bathroom is to the right on the wall that the main door is on. It opens with the toilet behind the door and the sink to your left. Stand alone shower by the window and a large Jacuzzi tub.

Each morning they give a light breakfast of breads, cereal, and canned fruits and some fresh fruit along with juice and tea/coffee. This is given in the solarium in the back down stairs. Their main office is just off of this too where they are very happy to give ideas and help you out with what ever it is you possibly need. The service and the people are the best parts of this place and trust me the room was amazing.
