I stayed multiple times in recent months while undertaking study at Sydney University staying in two different rooms across the trips. The beds and linen are excellent; well superior to a hotel. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and airy. High ceilings and walls tastefully decorated with interesting art. These features alone are enough to make this place. However, what... More

I am very late writing this review due to me thinking I had already done it a long time ago. Better late than never! I actually stayed here with a couple of friends during August 2015 while in Sydney for the Netball World Cup. Amazing hospitality and out of this world breakfasts. Julian and Brom are the best hosts and... More

I came down to Sydney with teammates for a competition and we decided to stay here after reading all the reviews - best decision we have ever made. Julian and Brom truly made us feel at home from pickup to the end of our stay. The breakfasts were the best I've ever had - locally sourced, hot off the pan,... More

Julian and Brom were our introduction to Australia -- and a lovely introduction it was. We really felt taken care of, from the moment Julian picked us up at the airport. Getting to talk with them and with their other guests over breakfast was an important part of the experience, one to be savored (with the wonderful food and coffee!).... More

Brom and Julian have created a wonderful, art-filled oasis in the middle of the best city in the world. They are gracious and welcoming hosts that make you feel like you're the only guest in the world. Breakfast of fruits, homemade granola and eggs and bacon make you want to linger and spend time in their company with Oscar the... More

Amazing house, but even more amazing hosts. Interesting people who have seen their share of the world. The breakfast will take you through the day, and so do Brom's suggestions for visits and excursions. We followed them every day and we saw fascinating parts of the city. And the drive from and to the airport was also very handy. Wonderful... More

We stayed 2 nights and had a very pleasant experience. Julian and Brom are wonderful hosts. They made the best homemade breakfast that I have ever had. They were really sweet with our wild two year old. You can tell they have a passion for what they do. They are very genuine. Book with them! You won't regret it.

Beautiful place to stay. Lovely hosts and a gorgeous resident dog Oscar. The most amazing breakfast and pick ups from the airport with two night stay. The wonderful hosts go beyond all expectations. Great proximity to the Enmore theatre. Hope to revisit!

To be brief, this is one of the nicest B&Bs you're going to find: anywhere, let alone in such a wonderful location in Sydney. The hosts are delightful people who've never met a stranger and who are totally gracious, generous and considerate.
