The Fullerton Hotel Sydney opened its doors in the heart of Sydney’s bustling Central Business District on No. 1 Martin Place on Friday, 18 October 2019.  

This heralds the first international expansion of homegrown brand, The Fullerton Hotels and Resorts; the brand that is central to The Fullerton Heritage—the world-class waterfront precinct by the enchanting Marina Bay in Singapore.

Housed in the iconic former General Post Office building, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is steeped in history and character. The Fullerton Hotel Sydney provides guests and visitors with signature Fullerton hospitality as they create their own memories, while showcasing the beauty and heritage of the Grand Dame to a wider audience nationally and globally.

From immersive heritage tours and cross-cultural cuisines to unique Fullerton touches that are introduced in each guest room, guests can look forward to an elevated stay in the newly transformed Hotel.

Known as the city’s rendezvous location, where Sydneysiders dressed to the nines to meet beneath the GPO clock completed in the mid-20th century, the building commands a prominent social and physical position in the city.

In present times, the landmark building remains in the heart of the city’s action, surrounded by financial institutions, luxury retail and lifestyle boutiques as well as galleries. 

Well entrenched in the spirit and vibrancy of The Fullerton Hotel Sydney is a taste of multicultural Southeast Asian signature dishes, and handcrafted cocktails.

Breat The Fullerton Sydney

Situated in the light-filled atrium on level one, The Place features a delectable breakfast buffet and flavourful à la carte specials for lunch and dinner featuring signature dishes you would expect to be found when visiting Singapore.

Enjoy delights including Hainanese Chicken Rice and the Green Chicken Curry while enjoying natural light streaming in from an impressive atrium that overlooks the General Post Office heritage building.

Chicken Rice

A perfect meeting place, The Bar is also located in the hotel lobby and is perfect for a signature Afternoon Tea, served daily from 12.00 p.m. to 6.00 p.m. daily.

Hotel guests and the general public can also explore the building’s vibrant history, dating back to 1874 through complimentary heritage tours, which were launched on 1 November 2019.

Docents share fascinating stories of those who have worked at the GPO building, which has connected Sydney to the wider world through letters, telegrams and the lively phone exchange.  

The 90-minute heritage tours will showcase the intricate stonework and reveal little-known facts of bygone years, including the once controversial Pitt Street carvings that depict the city’s early life and caused a public outcry upon their reveal.

The carvings feature the Postmaster General flirtatiously delivering a letter to a barmaid, an astronomer marking Sydney’s position on a globe, a young architect drafting a building, and a digger happily pointing to a chunk of quartz and gold.  

Exclusive tours of The Fullerton Sydney for hotel guests run on Fridays and Saturdays at 10a.m., while members of the public are invited to join the tours on Fridays and Saturdays at 11.45a.m.

Each session can accommodate 15 guests to ensure a personalised experience and bookings are advised through the Hotel concierge or via [email protected]

The Fullerton Hotel Sydney shares more than its history as a former GPO building with its sister property The Fullerton Hotel Singapore; it also features authentic Southeast Asian cuisines alongside Modern Australian dishes in the new restaurant The Place. Located on level one of The Fullerton Hotel Sydney, The Place is bathed in natural light through the magnificent glass atrium. Guests can wine and dine and enjoy the elevated views within the six-storey atrium that overlooks the former GPO courtyard. The sophisticated atmosphere is complemented by an open kitchen and lofty perch. Modern Australian dishes including pan-fried red emperor and braised wagyu short rib are married with signature Southeast Asian dishes such as the not-to-miss Singaporean chicken rice, chicken curry, seafood laksa, satay and many more. Another Fullerton tradition that take up permanent residency at The Bar is the Signature Afternoon Tea. The menu delivers on delectable savoury options including Lobster Cornet a l'Oriental, duck rillettes in sesame bun and smoked salmon mille-feuille with caviar. Satisfy the sweet tooth with dessert choices including chocolate moelleux, pecan maple tart or a pandan lamington. A selection of scones and an extensive TWG tea menu is also featured. Diners or visitors seeking a tipple can choose between a Singapore Sling or the new signature, Sydney Sling, each featuring unique flavours from the respective cities.
