“Great location for Sydney”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Love the open plan loft. Very cosy and comfortable. Private entry is a plus and there's room to move when our children and partners visited for afternoon tea. Our walks were enjoyable with plenty to see and do. Our bridge climb was an amazing experience to do as a family and the weather cleared at the right time for us. We will be back for sure.
Studio style accommodation is comfortable, roomy and affordable.Bet and Keith are friendly hosts and we would have to recommend Bets B & B to anyone visiting Sydney.

Thanks Greg and Debra. You had only a short two-day visit but you certainly made the most of your time in Sydney. We hope to welcome you back sometime soon.

We have just spent a week with Keith and Bet in their spacious and impressive Loft accommodation and could not fault the attention to detail in the facilities provided.
It was almost impossible to find good accommodation in the inner Western Sydney Suburbs
as we needed to be close to our family who have welcomed their first baby recently.
Annandale proved to be the ideal suburb and Bet's B & B the ideal home away from home.
We have no hesitation in recommending this venue to all of our friends and neighbours if they visit Sydney for a short or long stay. Cheers. Barry and Patricia Dunlop.

We spent 17 night in this wonderful B&B and could not have asked for anything more. Welcome greetings and good info about things to do and places to visit in well researched booklets left for our leisure reading.The accommodation was excellent very well furnished with all the mod cons in a most lovely setting.You have your own entrance and it is very private .Very near shops and a bus route as we had no car and we managed fantastically well .Bets and Keith very friendly and helpful in all matters.It was perfect!!!

Thanks Rixie and Neville. It was good to hear that you appreciated our recently updated information booklets. They cover the History of Annandale, Cafes and Restaurants of Annandale (including our recommendations), Historical Pictures of Annandale, The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Walks in Annandale (17 hectares of parks at the bottom of Johnston Street), and a Public Transport Guide. There's much to see around the neighbourhood and I know you enjoyed the parks and bike tracks. We look forward to seeing you again.

I was having a working week in Sydney and wanted to stay somewhere out of the city where I could cook for myself and practise my bassoon in the evening without disturbing anyone. Bet's B and B was perfect. The apartment is in the rebuilt stables at the back of the block, providing privacy and space. The amenities were great and Keith and Bet were charming hosts. One unexpected pleasure was the discovery of the 'witches' houses' on the way to catching the tram. There are also lots of green spaces close by where it was possible to walk. It was just what I needed.

One word of warning, the stairs from street level to the living area come from an old terrace house and are quite steep. I can imagine that if you had problems with your knees they could be a challenge.

Thanks, Susan. Your stay will be remembered for your your bassoon playing, which even the neighbours didn't seem to mind. It's also great to hear that you discovered the nearby parks. Yes, there are 17 hectares of parks around the foreshore at the bottom of Johnston Street. As for those stairs, they're about 110 years old and typical of terrace houses of that era.

In 6 weeks of touring Australia, we found ourselves comparing our accommodations to Bet's B&B, and Bet's came out on top every time. The high-ceilinged studio was immaculate and roomy and the furnishings were comfortable and attractive, with wonderful attention to detail. It's more like a furnished apartment than a traditional B&B bedroom. You do your own breakfast cooking, but Bet & Keith ask for your preferences, then fill the frig with eggs, bacon/sausage, jam, milk, juice, yogurt, etc. and provide bread, cereal, coffee, tea and condiments, as well, restocking every day. The air conditioning was top-notch and Wi-Fi service excellent and dependable. It's a short bus ride into Sydney's CBD and easy to connect to light-rail or the train system. The Annandale neighborhood is well-kept and felt safe.

Bet and Keith were wonderful hosts, generous with their time and quick to offer suggestions for touring Sydney. Bet helped us buy the Multi-Pass for travel by bus, train, and light rail and accompanied us on a morning's introduction to the city...thanks, Bet! Keith helped us contact our family back in Massachusetts when a blizzard there shut down the electricity...and then drove us into town to purchase cell phones. Many thanks! It's hard to be far from home when emergencies arise, and we are so grateful to Bet and Keith for their help. We highly recommend Bet's B&B and would be delighted to stay there again.

What a wonderful review! Thank you Ed and Becky for such kind words. We remember your visit with great fondness because it came at a time when you were experiencing terrible weather back home in Massachusetts and you had just arrived in sunny Sydney. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in the studio and to read that you rate our B&B as the best during your six-week Australia holiday is the finest compliment of all.

Right from the personal greeting by Bet and Keith, tour of the apartment and the facilities this place has everything you need plus some. It is also well located close to the Sydney CBD, Darling Harbour, Norton St and with easy access to public transport (Buses and Light rail). I kinda don't really want to tell too many people how good it is because it will be harder for me to book next time!!

I found the accommodation really comfortable, exceptionally clean and well-appointed. Everything I could possibly need was there and of a high standard. It was homely and close to cafes and shops. I liked the private entrance from the quiet lane and as a woman on her own this trip, felt quite safe and thoroughly enjoyed exploring in the vicinity. It was also exactly as portrayed on the website. I would happily stay there again.
