Without a doubt, this place is the best accommodation in the area by FAR! Friendly service, clean and comfortable rooms, spacious and quiet - this place is everything you need! Linen was clean and crisp, towels were plush and new, bathroom was renovated and sleek. Such a bargain for a wonderful experience!

Room Tip: Would be great for families because of the huge amount of space!

a very nice property. rooms are very large (much larger than a normal hotel room). bathrooms seemed brand new. split system air con's also seemed brand new. all bed linen / towels etc very nice / clean. i could not find anything in the immediate vicinity for a meal, however i was happy to drive to find something. the place was very quiet, no traffic / road noise, and the owner was very courteous.

Having not been to Sydney before I was amazed that you could find somewhere so fabulous and so reasonably priced. It was quiet and so attentive, they even turned the light on so you didn't come back to a dark room.. Host Kevin was warm and very helpful...nothing was a problem. Great breakfast. Public transport only 3-4 minute walk so could access everything easily. Great local food outlets and facilities. I would highly recommend to anybody who needed to be close to the city.

After sitting at the hospital for several hours, we arrived at Darcys Hotel over an hour earlier than check-in time. My father had had an operation and needed to rest but we were worried as we arrived much earlier than the normal check-in time. We were warmly greeted by the hostess who told us not to worry and that our rooms were ready. She helped us in with our baggage and showed us to our rooms. What a wonderful surprise! We could not fault this wonderful old mansion with its tasteful, period-style furnishings, King Beds and immaculate presentation. Next morning down for an early start to the day and a delicious continental breakfast. We found Kevin, our hos,t to be a very attentive and gracious man who was only too willing to help us. We all recommend Darcys, without reservation! You had better hurry as I think Sydney's best-kept secret is about to unfold.

We stayed here as we were seeing a concert at Olympic Park and it is only a 7 minute drive and we did not want to pay a fortune for a less than average hotel. What a beautiful building that has been lovingly restored, with high ceilings, stained glass windows and lovely decor. We paid $139 for the room which included, offstreet parking, continental breakfast and room with king size bed (firm but comfy), tv, shower ensuite, coffee provisions, iron and ironing board. Kevin the host was most helpful, we will stay again when we next see another concert, wonderful place!!!

Found the BEST B&B in Sydney!! The gorgeous old style rooms are spacious, the location very handy to transport, and the best value for money! Kevin, the host, was so gracious and helpful for any needs. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The King with ensuite upstairs is a delight!!
