With views over the infamous Sydney Harbour - Opera House et al - the Four Season’s location is undeniably good.
There are a grand total of 534 rooms, 14 of which are suites, all decorated in true Four Seasons style with marble bathrooms, rich fabrics and exotic mahogany wood. The views are the icing on the cake, overlooking either Sydney Harbour Bridge and Walsh Bay, George Street, or the Sydney Opera House and Circular Quay.
Dining options include a modern Australian restaurant which serves an a la carte menu crafted from seasonal local produce, and The Cabana for light bites and relaxed snacks by the pool. Pop-up restaurant Tables joins the show in early 2017, where regional specialities including Milly Hill lamb chops and Mt Cook Salmon are complemented by fresh, seasonal veg and world class wines. The hotel's bar, Grain, is a meeting spot for the great and good of Sydney - i.e. it makes for great people watching. For a more home away from home experience Lounge 32 offers guests an inviting open plan space complete with a kitchen, open bar and self-service fridges stocked with Australian wines, and healthy homemade-style dishes. Sit and enjoy the views as if you were in the comfort of your own home.
Facilities include a heated outdoor pool, spa with sauna and steam room, and a gym. Away from the hotel, Sydney has plenty on offer for both grown ups and families, from tours of the Royal Botanical Gardens to a visit to Sydney Aquarium and Wildlife World. Located in the historic Rock's district, there are numerous restaurants, shops, bars, museums and markets on the hotel's doorstep.
Families are well catered for, with babysitting, children's menus and child-size dressing gowns all available. There are also numerous activities in and around the hotel that suit children of all ages.
Why we love it
The hotspots of Sydney are a stone's throw from the Four Seasons.
