I must admit when we selected here to stay we did so we trepidation as many of the reviews are quite bad.....I even had a backup hotel to call just in case that was over double the cost of this one.
We need not have worried.....I am not sure if most people think everywhere they stay needs to be 5 star even in 3 star accomodation but the Burwood Bed and Breakfast is 3 star. It is a very old house (huge) that has been turned into many many separate rooms. We have a dog so finding pet friendly was important to us.
Linda, the manager of the place has been there for 3 years.....we found her to be very friendly and she came to meet our dog and say Hi after we booked in.
The room was small but the bed was comfortable, the heating was fine and the toilet/shower (a prefab unit installed later) was small and a bit dark but the water was hot and you didn't have to run around to get wet.
Our room had a door to the outside garden area which was great when taking the dog out for her to get her business done. A little more grass would be good but we are in Sydney and grass is at a premium in the urban sprawl that is Burwood.
The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. The towels weren't brand new but they were clean and they dried us.
For breakfast on the first day of our stay cereal which was set out for self serve as was the bread for toasting. The table was set with butter, jam and marmalade. We were also served with sausages and eggs and at the end of our meal, Linda encouraged us to "take a sausage for the doggie"
We spent two nights there quite happily (we are the type of people who as long as the place is clean and the bed comfortable and the shower hot we are happy) We got all of this and a hot brekkie as well. Sure there were some scuff marks on the wall, the blinds were old and needed replacing but given the age of the house it's not a huge drama.
We would definitely stay there again if we were taking our dog to Sydney with us.
