The 5 Best Hotels for Families in Sydney
The choice of family-friendly hotels in the inner city is surprisingly poor. These standard rooms are large enough for two double beds, while an extra single can also be squeezed in, and interconnecting rooms are available. The one- and two-bedroom Loft Suites feature a downstairs living room and can easily cater for a family of five. Children under 16 stay free (with breakfast) for each paying adult. The upside is definitely the location, but the outdoor pool is disappointingly small. The floodlit tennis court, however, is a rare attraction.

The location is superlative: facing Circular Quay (for trains and ferries), it’s a one-minute stroll to the Opera House, and only a little further to the vast Botanical Gardens and historical Rocks area (for cafés). The rooms – called suites – have one or two bedrooms. They feature a fully-equipped kitchenette and lounge/dining area, and the sofa can convert into a double bed for no extra cost for up to two children under 11. All views of the harbour or gardens from the sizeable balconies are excellent, but the large indoor pool does reek of chlorine.
