This B and B had a great location, proximity to main attractions was perfect. However, the room was super cold at night. Rooms didn't have sufficient heating or blankets. The bathroom was relatively clean, but we did get a couple of insects during our 3 day stay. Our hosts James and Linda were really nice and helpful. To sum up,... More

We were very disappointed with our stay at this B & B despite its proximity to the main Sydney attractions. It is practically under a busy freeway flyover so very noisy. The room was very cold with insufficient blankets and heaters. The curtains were also very thin. I slept in my fleece and was still woken by the cold. The... More

What a lovely stay we had at this place. The location is exceptional - only a short walk into The Rocks with all amenities close by. Our stay in the Barton room was fantastic. It was spacious, cute and had an AMAZING bed. Breakfast was also lovely, a great variety of cereal and bread with the option of cooked eggs... More

This Bed and Breakfast was excellent. The hotel was well very welcoming. It is steps from The Rocks and major attractions. The owners are helpful and cook an excellent breakfast. You do have to pay for parking extra at $35 per night and do not have access to your car after 5 pm. You can walk to most destinations or... More

My husband and I stayed here for two night in the heart of winter.

Dear Miamiamia Thanks for taking time to review Sydney Harbour B&B. We are glad that you enjoyed the complimentary upgrade from a share bathroom to an en-suite with Opera House view. On occasions, where the large cruise liners decide to park is completely out of our hands. I do have a direct line to most cruise captains but they just... More

Sydney Harbor Bed and Breakfast was such a great experience for us; James and Linda were so friendly, hospitable, thoughtful, and kind! We appreciated the home-like atmosphere, the service and room were nice, and the breakfasts were fantastic! Best sunny-side-up eggs in the world :) The location was also ideal for attending my conference and for sight-seeing. If/when we get... More

My son and I stayed one night at this B&B which enabled us to see the opening night of Don Giovanni at the Opera House. We were looked after with kind attention to detail by James and Linda. My son is autistic and was welcomed with an openness that implied James had had experience of similar situations. He found answers... More

Having only a weekend to spend in Sydney, location was everything. We walked everywhere and loved the proximity to the Opera House, the ferries, and the markets. Will certainly be returning - thanks James and Linda

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.
