Hi everyone. Now to be detailed but brief -I booked the Syd Harbour B&B way back in August 14 for my stay there on the weekend. I booked 4 rooms for myself and some friends as I was planning a weekend in the city for my up and coming birthday. It may seem and felt a bit early to book... More

James and Linda made us very, very welcome, which we really appreciated after our long journey. We arrived early, but were able to leave our bags until check in time, which was helpful. The hotel is located in The Rocks, a very interesting area of Sydney - lots of quirky restaurants and next door to the bridge. The room was... More

We loved being in an older building, with carpet runners up the stairs, wooden floors, sash windows - with modern showers. The welcome was nice and eggs and bacon for breakfast. A great place to have a break. And we could see the Opera House from our room. I was interested to see if it was noisy or quiet being... More

Excellent little place; ideally located right in The Rocks so within walking distance of pretty much everything. Nothing was too much trouble, James and Linda are genuinely lovely people and the whole place has a lovely feel to it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you both for making our first visit to Sydney so memorable. See you... More

The friendliness of the staff and the location of this charming B&B made our time in Sydney a pleasure. James and Linda were welcoming, friendly, and a great asset to Sydney. They were great hosts and cooked a delicious breakfast each morning, while spending time with us to chat about ourselves and our trip. The building itself is historic, which... More

Great central location and easy to find. As soon as you enter there is a warm welcoming from hostess Linda and a bit of a tour. The building is a beautiful old heritage building that is full of charm. We stayed in a room on the top floor with a small view of the opera house. The room itself was... More

A big thank you to James and Linda for being so helpful before during and after our stay. There is real attention to detail at SHBB and the place has an antipodean Victorian charm and character that made our stay even more enjoyable.

Felt safe and breaky was great in the courtyard. I had a concert at the Opera House and it was the perfect location. Great value for money. Had a... More

My mother, cousin and I stayed at the B&B for several days in the lead up to Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. If you would like to experience a true B&B and one that is heritage listed, full of character and authenticity, then this is the place to stay. Linda and James were lovely and couldn't have been more... More
