It was my first trip to Sydney and I was really glad I chose this B&B. I stayed here for 9 days. The owner is very helpful and made my stay a very pleasant experience. It felt more like staying with a host than just a B&B.
Location is good with public bus direct to Circular Quay, a light rail station minutes away, and 15 mins walk to the Sydney Fish Market. There are many cafes, local grocers along the Glebe Point Road with inexpensive eats. There is also a very nice park nearby for those who like to take walks or jog.
Room is clean, nicely done up, and beyond my expectations. The owner is fast in meeting my requests too.
What is really nice is that the owner gave pretty good advice on local attractions and ways to get around for me, especially since I was on partial business, and I do not have a fixed itinerary on things to do.
Overall, this is a great B&B to stay. However, please take note this is a fully non-smoking facility.
