Circular Quay is the place to stay in Sydney for its harbourside location, proximity to iconic landmarks, and foodie scene. Pullman Quay is right in the middle of it all with views of the harbour bridge and just a short walk from the Opera House. The hotel takes self-catering to a new level of luxury with spacious, apartment-style suites overlooking either the harbour or the botanic gardens. Self-catering doesn't mean a lack of service. On arrival you're greeted by an efficient team who spring into action parking the car, taking your bags and checking you into your suite in record time. The fine-dining restaurant serves modern Australian cuisine and there's a trendy cocktail bar. The indoor pool is a bonus.

The hotel has an enviable location on Circular Quay, surrounded by local landmarks, great views and excellent eateries.

Style & Character

Self-catering makes this perfect for families, longer stays in the city and business travellers who enjoy little luxuries. You're surrounded by tempting eateries, but it's nice to have the option of whipping something up in your own kitchen.

Service & Facilities

The location, together with the option for self-catering, the pool and the gym set the hotel apart from its peers. The Jacuzzi overlooks the harbour, which means it's perfect for people-watching as well as relaxing.

We love the harbour-view suites, like two-bedroomed 501, where you can while away an afternoon watching the goings-on on the water. There's plenty of room to settle in for an extended stay, and everything you could possibly need.
