Spectacular views of Sydney Harbour over breakfast
A brother, visiting from interstate and staying at Pier One Sydney Harbour, gave us the option of dining for breakfast or dinner. As my family enjoys a hearty breakfast when we venture from home, I chose the breakfast option and requested the buffet brekky at Pier One. This luxurious hotel is located under the Harbour Bridge with fabulous water views and a short stroll to The Rocks and Opera House.

Once we arrived, the six of us were seated indoors as the outdoor seating was occupied. The waitress asked for hot drink orders and we responded with Earl Grey tea, cappuccino and two hot chocolates. These drinks were refreshing and my children said the hot chocolates were delicious. We strolled around the hot food section which included an assortment of pork sausages, scrambled eggs, hot tomatoes and bacon which I piled onto my plate. The bacon was cooked to my liking, not too tough to cut and it was chewy. The chef asked for my choice of cooked egg and I chose 2 poached eggs which were delicious.

I ordered an omelette with ham, tomato, cheese, chives and onion. My order arrived several minutes later and it was tasty and moist. I checked out the bread section but was disappointed with the lack of variety. There were plain white bread slices and bread sticks but there was no grainy bread or raisin bread. There were cold meats and cheeses and these were tasty.

I enquired about pancakes but was told they would be an extra cost. I have had breakfasts at a number of hotels and there have always been pancakes with no additional cost so this was astonishing. The buffet was situated in a small area at the back of the restaurant with lighting that was surprisingly dim for breakfast time. It was also unusual there were no Asian foods for breakfast. There was fresh fruit in tubs, as well as yoghurts and bottles of fruit drinks in the fridge. These were all nourishing and delectable. After our meal, we walked through the hotel towards the outdoor promenade. The hotel's interior is beautifully decorated with soft snug chairs and a nicely designed bar.

Once outside, we observed the rows of blue comfy couches which overlooked an outstanding view of Sydney Harbour. My brother commented he will return to these couches for his afternoon drink.

Overall, we had friendly and attentive service in a top rated hotel situated on one of the most spectacular harbours in the world. We were all satisfied with our meal. The main negative was a lack of variety for breakfast, particularly as the full buffet breakfast is $38 per person. There is a Continental breakfast for $28 per person.

Pier One also has accommodation and my brother and sister-in-law were impressed that the room was large and had gorgeous views.
