About the hotel

The historic and newly renovated Glasgow Arms Hotel is perfectly situated in Harris Street, Ultimo right opposite the iconic Powerhouse Museum!

The hotel is easy walking distance from the Light Rail Tram plus the Sydney Explorer buses run past our front door! You’re literally only 5 minutes from the centre of Australia’s largest and most amazing city, with all its famous attractions.

This lively pub is a warm environment and friendly atmosphere, with great accommodation for you to enjoy while stopping in Sydney.

It’s 10 minutes’ walk from Darling Harbour, a waterfront area with museums, cruises and food, lots of food; 1.2 km from Town Hall railway station and 7 km from Sydney Airport.

Bottle Shop

Take the party with you! Our bottle shop is fully stocked with a great range of drinks. If you need some beverages for a function, gift or just to take back to the office for a Friday afternoon we always have cold beers and a specifically chosen range of Aus & NZ wines.


If you require food for your function you can speak to one of our friendly staff. We can work out a menu plan with you that best suits your needs.

A culinary delight

Right on Sydney’s doorstep


Whether you’re visiting Sydney for the weekend or have a conference or function to attend in Sydney and want to save yourself the long trip home, our rooms are the perfect and affordable place to relax.


The Glasgow Arms Hotel is a very open space so it is perfect for your laid back function. We do not have a private function room but many parties that are held here love the open space as people can mingle around the bar, bistro or courtyard. Why not put a tab on the bar and try our delicious party menu.
