We spend here 4 nights after the long inter-continental flight from Europe and found this an ideal place to settle down. The hosts Gery and Julie are very hospitable and friendly, very interesting to talk to during breakfast, and a source of useful tips and hints about Sydney.
They are very flexible to accomodate to the needs of their guests. There are 2 guest rooms, we had the larger one with a nice terrace overlooking the garden, the room was very spacious and tastefully decorated in a modern style. The bathroom modern, spacious and well planned. The location of the B&B is in a quiet side street less than 5 minutes off the main shopping street of Glebe, with many stores and restaurants near by. Public transport and downtown are easily reached. Not far is an an excellent Thai restaurant, at stays of 3 nights and more the hosts have arranged a deal with nice local restaurant in the direct neighbourhood where you get a free bottle of wine when having diner diner, absolutely to recommend
Gery makes an excellent coffee, the breakfast is (weather allowing) served on a terrace facing the garden, a wonderful tranquil setting. Selection of food was very good, changing daily with lots of fresh fruits and very good bread.
