We had the distinct pleasure of staying at the Colby recently on a trip down to visit the Fortress. Bev, the inn keeper is remarkable and so hospitable, a great host and a gourmet chef to boot. The house is extremely well run. We stayed in the MacLellan room and it was lovely. Our only regret was only staying 1... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the Pafford Suite. Its much larger than it looks on the website....its more like a spacious 1-BR apartment than a hotel room. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishware, utensils, stove, full-size fridge, pantry and microwave. It has a full size bathroom and house-sized bedroom. It even has a washer/dryer (with soap/dryer sheets) for doing... More

Ask to stay in the School House ! A beautiful one bedroom apartment where absolutely nothing has been overlooked for guest comfort -- chocolates, washing machine and dryer, full kitchen, coffee and tea. What a beautiful place. Walk round a couple of blocks to the main house for an absolutely sumptuous breakfast. Delightful owner and staff. Incredible value. We were... More

We stumbled upon this B&B by chance when we required a place to stay for one night. I wish we could have stayed longer. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. There were wine glasses and a cork screw and bottles of water provided in the room.Beverley was so helpful, recommending great places to eat in Sydney... More

We stayed at the Colby for five nights, Sep 17-21. We were so glad we chose this place for our long stay. The suite was immaculate and like new. The decor was in very good taste. The location was great for our walks to the water. Most of all, the proprietors are genuinely concerned about their guests’ experience and welfare.... More

We stayed 5 nights in the Park Suite in early September 2015. If you look on the web site you won't see listed the ensuite laundry facilities, that is washer and dryer,...but they are there and new. The people were great and helpful, food was wonderful. It is a great location close to Wentworth Park, downtown and the harbour boardwalk.... More

When my husband and I arrived we were met by Gabriel and Bev. They gave us a really warm welcome and showed us around the house. Our room was gorgeous. Breakfast was superb. Bev was very helpful and gave us good suggestions about where to eat. We had dinner in Flavours on the Waterfront. Great food, service and ambience.

We enjoyed our brief stay at The Colby House. The hosts were welcoming and helped us decide on restaurants, as well as gave us directions and a little history in the area. Our room was equipped with everything we needed (including chocolates!). The wrap around porch is a great place to sit and have a cup of tea. The breakfast... More

Need I say more than that title? I will anyway. A beautiful Victorian, with amazingly comfortable beds, gorgeously appointed and very clean. Our host Bev welcomed us and showed us around then gave suggestions/directions to restaurants for supper. We had the Fanjoy room with two single beds that knocked me right out and kept me in dreamland until morning. Our... More
