Reply To: Sydney hotel recommendation New Years eve 2013Back to Forum
I stayed at Quay Grand Suites in Circular Quay and had a one-bed suite overlooking the bridge. Had breakfast a couple of mornings on my own private balcony and was right in the heart of the action, the views were amazing as was the walk around the botanical gardens. I had the assistance of my best friend who is a native of Sydney and his recommendation was spot-on.
Nice large living room, kitchen with washer-dryer, luxurious bedroom, quality linens and an amazing bathroom – even though I didn’t spend loads of time in the apartment, the views, luxury and location were perfect.
Behind the scenes tour of Opera House is amazing as is the dinner at Guillaume at Bennelong, their degustation menu with wine pairing is amazing. If you get a nice Scottish waiter, stick him a $20 and he’ll pour more wine than even a fellow Scot can handle….oh the hangover the next morning.
Lastly, something which is a bit different is the Sea Plane tour – spectacular views and landing on the water is a bizarre and frightening experience!
On my bucket-list is Sydney at New Year, said on another thread that I loved Sydney as it took my very much by surprise, hope you have a great time!
