This B and B is a in a great location. The front of the building is charming. We did get a nice breakfast every morning with the choice of pancakes or eggs and bacon. All in all it was a very expensive breakfast. We were visiting Sydney from the USA. We were in Sydney for business and had come to... More

Very clean and very much cared for, the accomadation had everything we needed for our short stay in Sydney. The... More

We were delighted with our stay from the first moment of welcome. A charming alternative to the more conventional hotel experience. We will stay here again when we visit the Opera House, which was an easy stroll away. Very special to experience the Rocks at close hand.

The cottage associated with this B&B is very sweet and cosy. Breakfast was great and service was friendly, as were our fellow guests. A great place to stay, demonstrating some of the charm and history of The Rocks in a prime location.

We recently stayed the night in this location (Saturday night) and found the accommodation spotlessly clean and comfortable. The location is very convenient offering a walk of only minutes to the Rocks area and Circular Quay. The hosts were extremely pleasant and attentive and supplied a lovely cooked breakfast in a sunny court yard the next morning. All in all... More

Had a great stay here last week, its a nice older building with lots of character. Perfectly situated with a short walk to the bridge climb, circular quay and downtown if you need to do any shopping. Breakfasts were good, bacon and eggs or pancakes and nice portions. Cab rank right outside and a good pub (The Australian) 2 minutes... More

Linda & James were fantastic. Not only did they give us great advice on how to get to the B&B prior to stay, they were prompt to answer any questions asked. We walked from Wynyard Station which was very pleasant and not too difficult. On arrival was greeted and shown direct to accommodation, The Loft, at rear of main establishment.... More

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.
