I spent a weekend at Bev & Gordon's B&B. It was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were tastefully decorated with private ensuites, and the large four poster beds were fresh and so comfortable. The food was scrumptious, fresh, and the attention to detail was not lost on Gordon who would appear just as you needed more coffee. The wrap around deck... More

This was a great place to stay in Sydney. Bev and Gordon were wonderful hosts and Bev's breakfast took us through the day, not to mention it was delicious. They went out of their way to help us with any questions we had about our travels. Room was beautiful, cozy, clean and with all the amenities. Can't imagine a better... More

All the reviews we'd read of Colby House had left us with very high expectations and we weren't disappointed. Bev and Gordon were excellent hosts and the accommodation was everything we could have hoped for. The breakfasts were outstanding. Much thought had clearly gone into them and we enjoyed every bite! After several weeks away from home it felt like... More

This was our first visit to Sydney and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Our hosts were wonderful and we loved our room. Breakfast was excellent and we had a great visit and met other travellers over breakfast. Can't beat their maritimes hospitality. Thank you so much Bev & Gordon!
