Cremorne Point Manor Boutique Hotel Review

Just the other day I was talking about one of the prettiest spots in Sydney, the gorgeous Cremorne Point. At the time I mentioned some of the beautiful homes that are found on the point and how I like to dream about living in them, but what I didn’t tell you is there’s also a home that was long ago turned into a guesthouse, and that you can still stay there today.

The Cremorne Point Manor was built sometime in the late 1880s and later converted into a guesthouse called Redcourt. Now a heritage building, I’m told it’s one of Sydney’s oldest continually run guesthouses, and I can only imagine the tales the walls could tell if they could talk.

Staying in a four star guesthouse like Cremorne Point Manor is not like staying in your typical hotel. While both types of accommodation offer different room types, here they range from a two room family suite for around $330 a night, down to a small room where you have your own toilet but share a shower, for around $99 a night, with most rooms around the $160 mark.

As for me, I lucked out with a stay in the Deluxe King Spa Suite, which includes a king size bed and a spa that looks like you could fit three people in. Not that I tried. Promise.

The current owners took over the property eight years ago and have renovated it to take it up from three to four stars. It is filled with design touches I like (read: wondered if I could replicate at home), including framed pieces of jewellery, china and other sweet pieces, and I also like the little things, like the way they’ve put their logo on toiletries and water bottles in the fridge.

Continental breakfast is served in a room at the back of the two-storey building and they have a free DVD library and a selection of books to choose from depending on how you want to curl up in bed.

But the best form of relaxation on offer is just fifty metres or so down the road. It is here that you can start one of the best walks in Sydney, or simply join some of the locals or canny tourists and sit on the picnic blanket on the harbour’s edge, optional glass of wine in hand, and soak up one of the best views in the world.

Amanda Woods stayed as a guest of The Cremorne Point Manor but as usual all opinions and thoughts remain her own.

The owners of the Cremorne Point Manor also have another boutique budget lodge around the corner. Check out my piece on the Glenferrie Lodge in Kirribilli for more.

  1. Wat a lovely place, especially if you were visiting friends on the north shore 🙂

    • Absolutely… and not a bad spot for Vivid as well, just a few minutes from Circular Quay and you’d get to hop the ferry past those beautiful lights 🙂
