From the outside Spicers Retreats’ new boutique hotel is almost indistinguishable from the chic residences lining the leafy streets of Victoria Street. But the once modest, suburban interiors have now been transformed into 20 luxury hotel rooms, complete with lobby, restaurant and bar.
The hotel started life as three separate terrace houses in the late eighties and many of the building’s historical features have been preserved with the addition of modern design elements. Rooms are decorated in a neutral palette with gold and marble accents, while coastal artworks adorn the walls, paying homage to Sydney’s beach culture. Those staying in a balcony suite can take their morning coffee on the street-facing verandah like a Potts Point local.
The hotel lobby
While the hotel offers breakfast and a small bar, the venue has no restaurant, instead urging guests to explore the neighbourhood’s award winning eateries. The Potts Point dining scene was one of the key motivations behind Spicers’ location choice, while the luxury boutiques, water view parks and close proximity to the CBD add to the suburb’s appeal.
Rates for the bed and breakfast package at Spicers Potts Point start from A$395 per night.
