We stayed here to be close to the Vivid experience.We had dinner and drinks 50 metres up the road at the Australia hotel. Here they have lots of Aussie beers to choose from plus beautiful pizzas. We watched the lightshow another 50 metres up the road at the Glenmore Hotel from the top deck. A great viewing spot for the... More

It's very difficult to understand all the positive reviews on TA: our experience was not a pleasure. We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of May, the location is really good, but it's the only positive thing. On the ground floor -The Parker room -2 bedrooms suite, is described as having a queen bed and 2 twin beds. One... More

Dear Domy We are saddened to hear that your stay was sub par. We take reviews very seriously and whether good or bad always give us a chance to improve and respond. We are not sure where you read the description of the Parkes room however it is described as a Queen with a single room with ample room for... More

The owners were hospital, they go the extra mile and this is an overall great place to stay. The breakfast is yummy and the outdoor courtyard is leafy and bright. The owners let us have a late check-out, let us leave our car in the car space we rented from them for late in the day so we could explore... More

I stayed at the Sydney Harbour Bed and Breakfast for two nights last week. it was a business trip but I wanted to steer clear from regular hotels and find something warm and homey, and that is exactly what I got. The building itself is very rustic and well-preserved. A lot of effort has gone into maintaining this old historical... More

I stayed at this B&B upon arrival from overseas, US, on 4/18, they were gracious in allowing my travel buddy to keep her luggage in my room, the breakfast was lovely and it is in a great location. When I send emails prior to my arrival to ask about the surrounding areas/pubs/restaurants to coordinate with other traveling buddies, they were... More

We were stuck in Sydney due to bad weather and every where was booked out. Sydney Harbour Bed and Breakfast were able to find room for myself, my partner, my parents and my uncle, his wife and their 12 year old daughter. It was absolutely stunning, service was wonderful and breakfast was delicious. Will certainly be staying again next time... More

You cannot go wrong when staying at this hidden little gem. A beautiful old home updated to accomodate every visitor. With only a handful of rooms, you will feel like you are at home in Sydney. The breakfast is wonderful, the beds are comfortable and your vacation will be all the better by staying here. Just minutes from the Opera... More

Sydney Harbour B&B is very conveniently located close to Circular Quay (~5min walk from the station using the lift & Cahill Walk), has a very nice "heritage" atmosphere you won't find in more standard accomodations, and more than anything else James and Linda are very pleasant hosts. At first I was a bit afraid the location close to the Harbour... More

My brother, sister & I stayed for only one night in the Parkes room so we could attend the Anzac Dawn service. After walking into the room & checking it all out the first thing my sister said was 'can we stay longer'. Sums it up really. Sure it was not perfect & the design a little odd but it... More
