Besides, if you’re someone with a fine taste in Australian cuisine, then chef Peter Doyle is going to enjoy surprising your taste buds with his incredible cooking skills!

2. Dive Hotel

The Dive Hotel is a family own establishment that is about eight kilometers S-E of central Sydney and allows you to enjoy your stay here in a groovy and relaxing atmosphere. Most people come here in the warm summer months since they can experience everything Australia is meant to be at a slower pace they can easily adapt to. A quick look at the blue tiled bathrooms, the polished floorboards and the crisp cotton sheets immediately reveals the hotel doesn’t live up to its name, but is indeed a comfortable and welcoming place to stay.

Each of the fourteen rooms in the Dive Hotel feature a microwave, a fridge and a small kitchen, so they are perfect if you plan on cooking more instead of eating out. On top of that, you also have a breathtaking ocean view out to Wedding Cake Island which will make for many lovely photographs!

3. Royal Hotel, Randwick

Cannot make up your mind between the beach and the city? If so then Randwick is a great compromise with Coogee Beach being just fifteen minutes down the hill and many buses going to the city center. The hotel has been recently renovated and it’s the perfect place where you can enjoy spending your time in an authentic Australian pub.

In total, the hotel has forty rooms and each of them is painted in a palette of grays, browns and creams while at the same time maintaining the building’s vintage charm. And when you add to that a free parking spot, free Wi-Fi and an unbeatable value of 10 AUD lunch money from local chef Danny Russo, you cannot feel but utterly compelled to give Randwick your nod of approval.

4. The Darling Hotel

The Darling hotel is one of the top hotels in Sydney that’s going to guarantee you’ll enjoy a 5 start vacation. While the smallest rooms start at thirty five square meters (and are therefore great if you don’t have a large budget), there are also some pretty big suites you can choose from the hotel’s 171 rooms. Each suite has a water view from floor to ceiling windows and the furnishings are top notch to the smallest detail. And if you want to enjoy the most delicious food in town, there are a couple of fabulous restaurants nearby that are really going to redefine what delicious food is all about.

5. Sydney Park Hyatt

By far the Sydney Park Hyatt is one of the most luxurious hotels in the city and having been recently renovated, you can only imagine that if it looked amazing in the past, now it looks spectacular. The location of the hotel makes it perfect if you want to enjoy a romantic vacation with each room having a marvelous Opera House\ harbor view.

When it comes to the interiors, they all feature beige and cream hues matched with rich layers of chocolate that create a space which reflects a truly natural feel. There’s a really great balance between elegance, luxury and modern design which the Park Hyatt manages to pull off really well, delighting everyone who decides to be its guest even if for one night. But if you really fancy a 5 star stay, then you’d want to opt for the signature suite. Each of these suites feature a private balcony and allow you to relish the best Sydney has to offer. Just make sure you have the champagne ice and some good music playing in the background and you’re all set for enjoying a perfect evening.
