Pier One Sydney Harbour: Hotel REVIEW

Staying in Sydney? For a Sydney staycation as a local, or as an out of towner?

Look no further than Pier One Sydney Harbour.

It is THE destination hotel in Sydney.

When you think of Sydney, what comes to mind?

That view. The harbour. The Sydney Opera House. The Sydney Harbour Bridge. Heck, even Luna Park thrown in for good measure.

Guess what: you have all of the above RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU.

Pier One Sydney Harbour is situated in Walsh Bay, pretty much under the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Well, you know, under it as such, but... the closest to the Bridge in Sydney. The views... are... to die.

Josie's Juice was very lucky to have deluxe room closest to the Bridge booked (it's where Kylie Minogue, and many celebs stay when they're in town, with my guest booked on the same floor with the large balcony room) - and if you want 'Luxe Sydney', ask for this room when booking at Pier One Sydney Harbour.

Imagine having breakfast on your balcony overlooking the water? Yes, this is the view you'll enjoy.

With a queen sized bed - which, wait for it, has a television IN the foot of the bed, so you can snuggle up and watch telly from your bed - overlooking the water, and a separate lounge/dining area, two toilets, a foyer entrance, and ample space, it's luxe at its best.

But I've left the best until last: the full size bath tub overlooking THAT view. So you can soak in style... I mean, you really have to do it right. Order some bubbles, get some soapy bubbles in your tub, and watch the world go by.

Okay, I won't carry on. Let the photos speak for themselves:

And then... The Gantry. The restaurant you simply MUST come dine at during your stay there:
