The moment we crossed over the bridge and entered the North Shore of Sydney Harbour– I knew we had made the right choice on where to stay. The winding streets were filled with beautiful mansions, manicured gardens all of which led to the beautiful Mosman Bay with outstanding views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.
Cremorne Point Manor was the highlight of our trip to Sydney and an absolute gem of location. A boutique luxury hotel, it has everything thought out down to the last detail. Not to mention it’s a 19th century federation building and beautifully restored. Although I love the hustle and bustle of Sydney City it was a welcome breathe of fresh air with it’s relaxing and tranquil location.
The Penthouse was unfortunately unavailable (booked out for a wedding) but we had the pleasure of staying in the Deluxe Bath Ensuite. Our room was spacious and filled with light, beautifully placed mirrors and comfortable furniture. The bathroom was hands down the most incredible bathroom of any hotel I have stayed in. The same size as the bedroom itself it was bright, beautiful and filled with all the amenities you could ask for. Oh and did I mention the claw bathtub? Considering it rained for most of our stay in Sydney the bathtub was much appreciated. Both my friend, Nina and I look back and think about how this luxury boutique hotel made our trip in Sydney as unique and special as it was.
My favourite part of staying here by far is the incredible views it offers of Cremorne Point and Mosman Bay, the beautiful spacious rooms and the proximity to the bay of Sydney. It was too easy to stroll down to the bay or catch a two minute bus to the wharf, from which we could get to the centre of the city or hop around to various areas nearby. Since we were close to Taronga Zoo we took a bus up to the main road and had a beautiful brunch one day before strolling down to the zoo and enjoying the sunshine on the way before taking a bus home later that evening. Sydney transport is easy to learn when you useGoogle Maps and possess an Opal card.
Since we were lucky enough to have a beautiful day of sunshine and visit Taronga Zoo I enjoyed sharing with my American friend a tour of all the Australian animals whilst admiring the beautiful backdrop of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House on the skyline. It was definitely an experience not to missed. Thanks so much Travel Lovers Australia for setting up this incredible day trip for us! And as a tip – if you happen to visit during the Sydney Vivid Lights festival, the zoo has a special display set up especially for this (I won’t say too much).
Thanks so much to Travels Lovers Australia and Cremorne Point Manor for our beautiful stay. We will definitely be back for more! Hopefully next time we can try out the Penthouse suite 😉
Until next time,
