Sydney Harbour Bed & Breakfast

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This place has a lot of history,. The staff is friendly. However the place is run down, I killed a roach the first day there and it stayed on the stair case till the day I left. I had a street facing room and it was noisy, especially at 4 am, when the street sweeper passses. But worst of all, they entered my room when I was out, and did construction , made a mess all over my clothes and bed and never said a word.

Good clean, safe and friendly option just steps from the Shangri-la and Four Seasons at a fraction of the price. Good value for a family or party of 3/4 who can all be accommodated in a single room such as the Macquarie. Downstairs is a reading room and dining room. Breakfast is served from 0730-0900, though guests can grab cereal, bread etc from the kitchen before that, self service. Only disclaimer is that this property is for early risers. Noise from the nearby railway line starts early - fine if you are a road warrior with an early start, perhaps not if you are jetlagged or have been up late the might before. Also, shower and lavatory are accessed via the hallway, not ensuite. If you are ok with these factors, this presents better value than the nearby hotels. Other good factors- this is just a few hundred metres from Circular Quay station. Very convenient if coming in from the airport without lots of luggage. Also, no lift in the building so you must be able bodied to get up two storeys on the stairs. If you want to run in the botanical gardens or across the harbour bridge,this a great base. Note that the gardens open fairly late at 0700, reflecting Sydney 's laid back approach to life. Hoo-ah!
