Newtown Darlington Suites
Ranked #19 of 57 Sydney B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 21, 2013

I really cannot add to the details that others have given, Golden Grove is excellent, Lloyds the owner was a pleasure to deal with & Newtown is a really fun area to stay in with lots of reasonably priced places to eat and drink.

It is very quick to get into town from Redfern station and if you are staying for any period of time you can purchase various passes that make the journey very economical.

We had a superb week here and would not hesitate to return if we ever go to Sydney again.

What a great find this was, we used Tripadvisor to find it and were not disappointed. Lloyd was a great host, going above and beyond by meeting us at the airport. This was a great plus for us, especially as we were arriving on separate flights at different terminals! Lloyd showed us the lie of the land so we knew how to best get to the centre of town. The apartment was really spacious, with all mod cons and missing absolutely nothing. Lloyd lives nearby so we could easily get in touch with him if we needed to. But that wasn't necessary! Breakfast had been provided in the huge kitchen. There was also a nice grassed area outside for sitting in. It only took about 20 minutes on the bus to get into Sydney, and there are some lovely restaurants very nearby. It made a great start to our holiday in Australia.

Golden Grove was a delight to stay at. Lloyd was most helpful in showing me around town and pointing out restaurants nearby and places of interest. I had just flown in from the USA and this was the perfect place to relax and recover in - a home away from home! This is not just a bedroom but an entire apartment! One could definitely spend a week or two at Golden Grove while exploring Sydney. King Street is a short walk away and has lots of restaurants to eat at. Public transportation also runs there regularly so it's easy to get out and about. If I ever visit Sydney again I would certainly want to stay at the Golden Grove B & B again! Thank you Lloyd!

We have just returned from a fifteen night stay at the Golden Grove B+B, as we were staying for that amount of time Lloyd picked us up from the airport and took us back.
Lloyds attention to detail is excellent and made us very welcome as soon as we were picked up, on the way back from the airport he drove us through Newtown showing us all the eateries and supermarkets and banks.
The flat we had was the downstairs one so we had the advantage of parking and somewhere to sit as the weather has been unseasonably warm, getting the hire car into to parking area was a bit hairy but to be fair I was upgraded with the hire car but a small hatch back would not be a problem.
The position of the property is perfect for central Sydney, we even walked in to the centre to collect the hire car approx 2km, there is a bus stop at the top of the road or Macdonaldtown station is a short walk, we started to use Redfern which is just slightly longer but a nice flat walk.
The kitchen contains everything you need for self catering, I even cooked a roast dinner ! all in all I would recommend the Golden Grove to anybody staying in Sydney well done Lloyd !!!

Golden Grove has a 'wow' factor that makes it incredible value and a definite repeat destination. Lovely interiors, original artworks, all mod-cons, ample breakfast provisions and a 2-minute walk to funky King Street yet super-quiet - a winning combination! Lloyd is the perfect host and has put a lot of thought into creating a uniquely welcoming space for his guests.

A wonderful Oasis in the middle of inner city Sydney. Great for couples and just manages to comfortably house a couple with additional friend :-) Loved the close proximity to Newtown and Enmore theatre. Will definitely be staying in this wonderful and convenient little hide away again. Thank you also to Lloyd for being a very welcoming and helpful host.

Room Tip: Ground floor apartment had the lovely grassed courtyard, was beautiful to have an outside space :-)

Coming from quiet little Cairns going to the 'Big Smoke' can be daunting but Lloyd and his little tranquil haven- Golden Grove- made it a breeze. A delightful, well appointed place to stay and all the creature comforts. If we need to meander down to Sydney again we have the peace of mind knowing airport pick ups and accomm. is sorted!
