Calling Hot Chocolate lovers…

Medusa would love to spoil you this autumn and winter with a warm and sweet accommodation treat.

Our $400 two night package, includes a complimentary ‘Lindt Ball Mocha Nespresso’, and a delicious guest room discount.

Available Monday to Thursday, this good value weekday package, is available now for direct bookings.

Hot chocolate is like a hug from the inside and can be either served with love by our fireplace, or in the cosy comfort of your guest room.

We know, ‘all you need is love’, but a little hot chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.

Pass the soap!

Ahhh… the luxury of soaking in a hot tub with gorgeous Aesop toiletries on these chilly winter days is heaven.

And you don’t need to book a grand room for this treat as every room category at Medusa has the option of bath or shower. Just ask us for a bath when booking in advance. If one is available it’s all yours!

Happy Mothers Day

Mother love is indelible. Our Mother’s Day special rates extend to the whole month of May 2022, so why not treat mum to a night with us this month.
Bookings need to be direct to receive an extra 10% discount.

We ❤️ Darlo, the old and the new!

Dalinghurst’s rich history and vibrancy has never lost its cool. Set on the high (northern) side of the Darlinghurst ridge, the grand terrace, now named Medusa is in the heart of this celebrated Sydney beat.

Medusa was built as part of the posh push of architecture in the 1800’s. Until a recession struck… and then many of these beautiful large stately homes were reconfigured to became boarding houses and naughty places for sly grog, razor gangs and bordellos. In fact Darlinghurst was called Razorhurst for a while.

A turnaround in economy and society has made today’s Darlinghurst a safe, cosmopolitan and creative hub. Now home to renovated manors, beautiful terraces and glamorous apartments boasting contemporary architecture.

The lifestyle and historic elements of Darlinghurst will always satisfy the curious and the easily bored. A plethora of galleries, curiosity boutiques and beautiful parks by day, and by night the choices include not only culinary teasers and cute bars, but also theatre options that are original and unique, such as the Darlinghurst Theatre Company and events including Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

The Covid rules have relaxed for expanded dining and cocktail bar experiences too, so stay with us at Medusa, (circa 1900), go forth and have fun!

Indulge Mum at Medusa

Treat mum to our Indulgence package.
This truly gorgeous indulgence includes champagne, chocolates, Aesop treats and complimentary noon check out – best of all, if you book via our website, for the entire month of May 2021 you will receive 10% off the online published rate of our “Indulgence Escape” package.

No queue for you

Line dancing is cool, your reflection is cooler – yet lining up for reception breaks the fun barrier. And that’s not going to happen at Medusa!
Medusa checkin’s and checkout’s are easy peasy… Another advantage of a small boutique hotel.

As close as the palm of your hand – is the Medusa courtyard.

The surrounding guest rooms lure you to the outside…
The sunny north facing area beckons you, the reflection pond temps you..

The courtyard is the centrepiece of the hotel and the perfect sanctuary to sit and ponder.

Calming for the morning latte, convenient for the afternoon beer, a splendid spot to catch up with friends, a relaxing environment to unwind with your iPad – and the best background and flattering light for a selfie.

Book direct and enjoy the best discounts too.
