The room was clean, it had a fridge (no microwave or stove) and the bathroom was very modern. The space in Room 2 was massive but the lighting could have been brighter. Definitely, a good amount...

Stayed here Dec 2015. Excellent value centrally located, outstanding breakfasts. George, his sister and father could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. Would be the first place I'd try to book if I ever go back to Sydney..
