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.

This property is in a fabulous location; tucked quietly behind the bustle of Sydney Harbour, and yet only a few feet away from all the great cafes, restaurants and pubs the Rocks has to offer, Formerly an old Boarding Home, this converted Bed and Breakfast has lots of character and old world charm, including a small sitting room by the...

We started off very badly due to our flight being delayed but James, one of the owners, was very nice. He told us not to worry and that he would still be awake to welcome us. 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
