Reasonably priced and comfortable. The only problem experienced was a lack of bacon on the morning of our stay. Apparently not a usual occurrence. Blueberry pancakes were a reasonable substitute. Surrounding night life is some of the best in Sydney, worth a stay for a special occasion.

I only stayed one night and needed to catch a very early ferry to get to my destination on time. Maria and Andrew were so helpful and very accommodating and arranged for an extra early breakfast so I could make my ferry without stress. A great start to the day. Many thanks.

Me and my husband only stayed one night at the Sydney Harbour B&B but enjoyed our stay. We stayed in a Townhouse suite at the back of the property which was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend to our friends and would definitely stay there ourselves again.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Sydney Harbour B&B near the Shangri-la Hotel. If you are arriving with baggage, take the train to Wynyard Train Station for a straight walk exiting from the York Street side and ramp out near the Menzies, then a straight walk. Circular Quay Station = many stairs and its all uphill. The... More

We spent a week at this lovely B&B, our hosts were friendly and very accomadating. The accomadations were cosy and comfortable, the location, The Rocks, is very convent to, both the famous Sydney Bridge, the world famous Sydney Opera House and agreat transportation center. Be sure and buy an Opal Pass, to access all phases of this ultra modern transport... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in the Parkes room. We were able to walk to the B & B, with each of us rolling a piece of luggage, from where our cruise ship docked. The 10-15 minute walk was not too bad even with the hills and steps you must take. We arrived earlier than... More

We arrived very late and check in was a breeze which is what you want at that hour. All rooms are named after historical Australian figures. Our room was impeccably clean with all soaps and linens provided. Price wise we found it the most reasonable in all of our travels in Australia. Everyone is friendly and helpful and bags can...

Very relaxed, clean and located in a very quite historical part of Sydney. Enjoyed the warm hospitality of the hosts and really loved the unique historical nature of the accommodation. Given such a location, right in the heart of Sydney and literally a stone throw from some of Sydney's greatest attractions and transport hub, that's about the best you can... More

When one compares the prices of the hotels in the direct vicinity this B&B can't be matched. Yes its heritage but that's the charm! We can find the sterility in any part of the world but sincere, down to earth people are a whole different story. Beds were queen size (our room actually fit more than 2 people), breakfast is...
