This charming house is located walking distance from downtown Sydney and the boardwalk. As you walk downtown, there are nice parks to walk through. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Although our private bathroom was outside the room, we did not mind. They serve a delicious hearty breakfast. They also have a cozy veranda where you can relax and... More

Can't ask for much more. Great & comfortable rooms. Awesome outdoor balcony for relaxing. Great and helpful hosts (Bev & Gordon). Delicious breakfasts. By far the best place we stayed at during our two week trip through Eastern Canada.

We were just starting our holiday and after a long drive we got to Bev and Gordon's place. We were immediately made to feel at home. The Gabriel room was nicely appointed and had all the amenities that we could have asked for including a separate shower, disposable razors, chocolates in the room, and plugins for all of our electronic...

We had the opportunity to stay with Bev and Gordon for 2 nights in the Macdonald room. Everything about this place was excellent, the breakfasts were exceptional and the room had a comfortable bed. It was also within an easy walk of towndown for dinners. Would highly recommend this property.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! From the minute we walked in the door, our hosts (Bev and Gordon) welcomed us into their beautiful home and treated us like family. It doesn't get any better than this! The multi-course breakfasts were amazing. We stayed in the MacLellan room for 2 nights and Gabriel room for... More

We really enjoyed our hosts as well as the other folks staying there at the time. The breakfast each morning was excellent and just... More

Fantastic; Perfection; Relaxing. Bev. and Gordon could run seminars for people wanting to run a B&B. Their period home has been restored beautifully and most of it has been give over for use by their guests; four relaxing rooms on the second floor and a sitting room and dining area on the first; really well done. Now to the breakfasts.... More
