This is the first review that involved my family on their first trip to Sydney. That is why this review is special.
I have passed by this little B&B many times in my past business trips. I wanted to experience it because I am used to the larger corporate hotels in most of my trips to Australia. And most of the time, the key essentials ingredient was always missing and that is the warmth of the people in that in hotel.
This little B&B is definitely tops with me and my family because the hotel's proprietor, James & Linda, welcomed the 4 of us with a wonderful warmth of friendship. They were wonderful hosts and made our 5 days stay a pleasant and long lasting experience.
I loved their wonderful wake-up calls through the smell of bacon of breakfast; and the cosy little places like the living room and dining area. In the mornings, the hotel guests from different countries congregate at the breakfast table like family and long lost friends. The walls of strangers just melt away with the fantastic breakfast served by James and Linda.
I appreciate that they immediately had a heater for us in our room when I mentioned that our room was rather cold. That subtle attentiveness to the guests' comfort mirrors the sincerity of the hosts. That's what I like about this place.
Funnily, their hotel is just next door to the mega-hotel of Shangri-La Sydney. Perhaps if I juxtapose my previous review of Shangri-La Sydney and this Sydney Harbour B&B hotel, the contrast is so strikingly far apart. Shangri-La was an epic fail, while this one is just so special.
And it was extra special because I celebrated my birthday with my family here, in Sydney, in this hotel.
