We stayed in the Town House and had both rooms to our selves. Brilliant location for exploring The Rocks and Circular Quay, only a short walk to the Opera House. Made very welcome - will stay there again.

He was true to his word...even telling us about the historical significance of the building. If you get the chance, ask him! In the... More

We came across the Sydney Harbour B&B purely by accident, me and my girlfriend were searching for accommodation closer to Sydney Bridge as we were planning to do the walk, the location was perfect, for the Sydney Harbour Bridge is only a short walk to the end of the road. We turned up with no booking just hoping they had... More

My daughter and I spent a night here at for such a good price considering the location ( taxis always available outside as Shangri-La Hotel next door) we were very happy with a cosy comfy room with heating and cooling, clean bathroom to share with one other room and Linda was incredibly kind, welcoming and hospitable.
