My daughter and I spent 3 nights at this beautiful BnB. The room was sensational and very comfy and clean. Our hosts really looked after us well. We were only a short walk from interesting shops and restaurants and the ferries at Circular Quay. Would definitely recommend this place.

James and Linda were gracious hosts. The building has a warm, vintage charm, and the aroma of cooked breakfast reaching up to the second storey (where I stayed) was very pleasant indeed. :-) From the B&B it's an easy walk to all the charms of The Rocks, Circular Quay, the Opera House, etc. Very much looking forward to my next...

Great hosts Great location! Practically on the Harbour Bridge, this Bnb is within walking distance to Circular Quay, weekend markets and the opera house and numerous popular drinking holes (pubs). We stayed in Flinders room which was one of the least expensive non dorm accommodation options in the Rocks but does not have an ensuite. Very clean and tidy with... More

We stayed for 4 nights in early August 2016 and booked the Flinders Room and the Banks Room the 1/F - so we could have the (shared) bathroom facilities to ourselves. The rooms and bathroom are very clean and the beds are comfortable - but some parts of the premises are starting to look a bit tired and could do... More

James and Linda are great hosts and very helpful, but saying your B&B offers "premium accommodations", is a stretch. From their website... 'Our property is a heritage listed 110 year old building formally two boarding houses side by side, each showing a mirror image of the other with grand antique staircases on both the right hand and the left hand...

Perfect place to stay for a night or two in Sydney with the Rocks, the Bridge, the Opera house and the CBD all within easy walking distance. Old style cottage, with old style bathroom and kitchen and old style charm.

Perfect for our one night stay in the city. This charming B&B is situated in the heart of The Rocks area with everything close by. Certainly beats the large hotels for atmosphere and character. James and Linda serve up a great breakfast. Will certainly stay again when the occasion arises.

We stayed at the B&B for 3 nights for a birthday visit to Sydney. Being my first time in Sydney I was blown away by the friendliness of the staff. Thr breakfast every morning was really nice and kept us going the whole day. The room was just perfect and was exactly what we needed. Nothing more and nothing less!... More

My wife and I had a good stay at Sydney Harbour for the first day of our Australia trip. The property is in a good location near the harbor for access to the bridge, Opera House and botanical gardens. Breakfast was more than adequate as well and they even accommodated our early departure the next morning. We greatly appreciated their... More

Friendly people, James and Linda, who answered any questions and were very helpful. The place is very close to the Bridge Climb, which is why we stayed there, but we will be regulars now because of the great breakfast and good price. We definitely recommend it.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
