Hotel of the Week: Harbour Rocks Hotel, Mgallery by Sofitel!
Harbour Rocks Hotel is perfectly located in ‘The Rocks’ and just a short stroll from some of Australia’s best icons including Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay Terminal, and Sydney & CBD.
Built in 1887 on the site of Sydney’s first hospital, the hotel was originally a bonds warehouse and six adjoining terraces. The building has since undergone various incarnations. The décor is a now a unique combination of heritage charm with and modern appointments.
This boutique hotel offers a variety of accommodation, unique event venues as well as wonderful dining options.
When learning the history of the Harbour Rocks Hotel, there is one story that must be told – the story of Scarlett and Eric. Eric’s Bar is named after a late-19th- century seafarer. The legend goes that he was enamored of Scarlett, the madam in a nearby house of ill repute, and steadfastly beseeched her to wed him. Scarlett finally agreed to marry Eric on his return from a voyage to South America, but, alas, Scarlett died of tuberculosis shortly after Eric sailed. On his return, he was told of Scarlett’s death and was devastated. Eric died 2 weeks later of a broken heart.
The hotel’s fine dining Scarlett restaurant is also named in memory of the “Madame”.
– Scarlett Restaurant: 40 seated fine-dining restaurant with a 15 seated private dining room. The focus is on fresh quality produce delivered through modern Australian cuisine.
