Linda is a fantastic hostess from start to finish. Picked us up and dropped us to the Manly Ferry even. 5-10 min walk to Manly's Center so it was a quieter residential place to stay with a modernised rustic charm. Highly recommend this place and I will definitely choose this B&B again

I stayed for five nights with my wife and small daughter Ellie (8 months old). Linda is an amazing hostess, that makes you feel so welcome, she was incredibly friendly and helpful, and makes a killer breakfast.. the mango-strawberry yogurt is almost addictive. If we ever come to Sydney again, we know where to stay!
