We were booked into this b&b by a local and were well impressed. Situated in the ground floor of a traditional Queenslander house, this self-contained unit has everything you need. The bed is comfy, the aircon works and the fridge contains plenty for breakfast and snacks, including proper coffee. Merelyn is friendly, helpful but never intrusive. A treat. I'd stay...

We were visiting my partner's mother in Sandgate and needed a convenient place for a one-night stay. First Avenue B&B more than lived up to expectations! Merilyn was on hand to meet us as agreed. The ground floor bedroom with shared living/dining room and our separate bathroom were tastefully and comfortably decorated. One of us was eyeing off the antique...

We were looking for somewhere to stay near the Entertainment centre and are so pleased we were recommended Sandgate and we found this B&B( although when you search Sandgate on Trip advisor there are no results). Sandgate and Shorncliffe is a lovely area filled with quaint Queenslanders and leafy streets with a village like atmosphere, an expansive foreshore for walks...

Our family of five had two nights at this great B&B. We booked both apartments which had an interconnecting door. Very clean and welcoming, Merilyn made sure we had everything we needed-the fresh fruit platter, crumpets and yoghurt for breakfast was perfect and chocolate for that late night snack too! Perfect location for a wedding reception at the Full Moon...

Merilyn welcomed our wedding party there recently and we had a lovely stay. Quaint, clean, quiet, spacious - a perfect little bnb with a friendly host. We would love to come back soon. You won't be disappointed with your stay here.

We spent one night at 1st Avenue B&B. Merilyn was a wonderful hostess & made us feel right at home. We had a beautiful room with separate sitting room, private bath & a wonderful breakfast of fresh fruit, juice, coffee & toast. The location is less than a block from the Bay. The back yard was lovely with a small...

merilyn b, Owner at First Avenue B&B, responded to this review

I have tried several times to contact Trip Advisor to let them know I am in Queensland not Newcastle but have been unable to get a response or get it corrected. There is no First Avenue B&B in Newcastle Australia and one awful mistake by guests from Italy left them in Newcastle with no accommodation. I hope someone will contact...

What a wonderful place to stay. Spotless, tidy, charming and a welcoming owner who accommodated our Gluten Free request with GF muesli, bread, organic juice, fruit platter and all the little things. Fine touches to everything including wonderful linen on the comfy bed, lovely smelling towels and great local knowledge. Couldn't have asked for anything more. We'll certainly be back...
