Oh, how good is a room with a view?
And it must be said that Sydney Harbour was looking particularly gorgeous in the view from the lovely suite I stayed in recently at the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel.
What a view to wake up to, gorgeous to go to bed too as well.
Now then, I must get a grip and wrench my eyes away from the vistas.
This 32-room hotel on the harbourside at beautiful Watsons Bay is certainly a place I’d recommend for families visiting Sydney (or even for Sydneysiders in search of a gorgeous staycation.)
Here’s why… the family loft rooms are really good. They are well set up with a king bed downstairs and twins singles up on a mezzanine level. So long as your children are old enough to be safe around mezzanines, these rooms are terrific.
The second major reason why this hotel works well for families is simply location, location, location.
Watsons Bay has lots of cool kid-friendly things to do itself: Watson’s Bay Tea Gardens, the lovely beach, Robertson Park with its fenced playground, Doyles Fish Cafe, walks along the cliff tops, Watsons Bay Baths and more.

Then too, Watsons Bay is close to Bondi and the other Eastern Suburbs beaches. The bustling busy city centre of Sydney with its musems and art galleries and more is easily accessible by ferry, and the journey is most beautiful.
Back to the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel. In summer time the hotel is all about sitting outside enjoying the views in the Beach Club – this used to be known as the beer garden when I used to come and enjoy beer, views and sunshine here in my 20s. Ah, happy memories…
Anyway, the interior dining room is the Sunset Room and it’s where I ate dinner and breakfast.
It’s has the most lovely decor. Weddings and other functions are held here. How divine.
There are actually several different types of accommodation. I was hosted in a Harbour View Deluxe King Suite, which I can highly recommend if you’re a mum in need of escape from family life. I was and it did the trick nicely.
This room was just gorgeous, with a huge, elegant bathroom, comfy bed, heaps of space and the most gorgeous sliding shutters.
What an epic post!
I’ll end up with a photo of my very favourite spot in Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel, the comfy chair by the log fire. A winter wonder for chilly Sydneysiders.

In the sumer, I must bring the kids here by ferry from Circular Quay – they would love that.
Is Watsons Bay a favourite haunt for you?
Does it bring back youthful memories as it does for me?
Many thanks for the lovely room and for kindly shouting dinner for Grace from With Some Grace and myself. We really enjoyed our bloggy and twin-mum natterings in such lovely surrounds.
Dinner was yummy too!
