Timeless and historic, Spicers Potts Point is located in the beating heart of one of Australia’s most intriguing precincts. From the 19th century terrace houses to the ornate decorative filigree latticework; from the broad leaves of the majestic London plane trees to the hum of inner-city life – this is quintessential Sydney. At Spicers Potts Point, you become part of the surroundings, embracing the colour and character, living like a local, immersing yourself in the style, sophistication and bohemian charm of the eclectic streets.
Graciously housed within three beautiful, conjoined terrace houses, Spicers Potts Point offers an authentic, welcoming experience that puts you at the heart of the very best of Sydney. This hidden secret is for the adventurist who likes to experience things a little differently, and craves an informal, comfortable, friendly atmosphere where you’re made to feel part of the family.
Far enough away from the city, yet close enough to walk there easily, Spicers Potts Point is only moments from the Botanical Gardens, Opera House, NSW Art Gallery, Rose Bay and Kings Cross. And being located in one of Sydney’s most historic, charming suburbs, you’ll find an endless selection of nearby restaurants, cafes, bars and boutiques to explore.
Inside, you’ll find an effortless blend of heritage character and contemporary feel. The long hallways, classic staircases, marble fireplaces and wooden floorboards are all stunning emblems of the era, while the cool slate tiles, sleek furniture and designer touches give the property a modern edge. In keeping with the retreat’s close proximity to the harbour, the décor is cool, soft and aquatic, and natural light plays softly throughout. Bold and sensual artwork fills the space – think Martine Emdur’s underwater exploration of the human form, and Keith Burt’s abstract interpretations of sea life.
In the main common area, a casual bar invites guests to take a seat and select from the honesty fridge. A relaxed dining room serves a delicious morning breakfast, preparing guests for their day ahead.
The 16 elegant rooms and 4 spacious suites feature a unique blend of luxury and character. The bedding is sumptuous, the soft furnishings are opulent, and the modern, sparkling bathrooms are a sheer indulgence in themselves. In the Victoria Terrace suites, a private balcony provides a quiet sanctuary to sit and watch the artistic, the interesting and the monied all go about their business below.
Bars and restaurants within easy walking distance include Potts Point institutions such as The Butler, Chaco Bar, Dear Saint Élouise, The Apollo, Fratelli Paradiso, Yellow and Bistro Rex. And for something out of the ordinary, a visit to an eclectic boutique such as Macleay on Manning or Becker Minty is a must.
Whether you’re travelling for business, holidaying with friends, or planning a romantic getaway, Spicers Potts Point is a charismatic, iconic and classic retreat that will quickly become your favourite home away from home.
