Spent 2 nights in the Park Suite which is across the street from the main B&B. Beautifully appointed apartment with sitting room, kitchen and bedroom. Very clean and very comfortable and very reasonably priced. Also includes a washer and dryer. Breakfast was served at the main house and they were the best we've had on our 3 week trip. Highly...

We stayed here for two nights and were amazed at how nice it was. The owners have done this for eight years. We stayed all over in the Maritimes and this was, by far, our best accommodations. Walk to town, the staff is friendly and informed. They think of everything. STAY HERE!

My mom and I stayed here in August travelling the east coast (we are from Toronto). We stayed in the school suite so if you can snag that it is a must! It's not at the main B&B, so do have to walk 5 mins to get breakfast. It's private and a fully furnished apartment. I was even able to...

We enjoyed 2 seperate complete flats adjacent, as we were 2 couples. Anything you may expect at your home exists in the flats. Breakfast nice. Service nicer... location perfect.. No need to look for another place around. This spot is perfect. Price is also very good.

I recently enjoyed my second stay at the Colby House. The rooms are tastefully decorated and every convenience is provided. We spent an enjoyable evening sitting on the large wrap-around porch. The breakfast was delicious. The Colby House is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Sydney.

We travelled to Sydney in July and were so glad we had booked this bed and breakfast. We stayed in the Pafford suite which is directly across the street from the main house. We were greeted and welcomed with a map showing us where local amenities could be found. Parking was ample. There was tons of space for the four...
