My husband and I stayed 4 nights in the ensuite room. We enjoyed sitting in the small private balcony that overlooks the back garden. The owners are attentive and very helpful with recommendations. Our rooms were serviced daily. The bed was firm, but comfortable. Downstairs there are sitting rooms and an additional larger balcony that guests can use. We made good use of the WiFI for our iPad. The B&B location is ideal as it is a block to the busy Crown St; handy to public transportation and numerous restaurants.
The B&B is great value for the price. It's not the norm big hotel room/suite. It's full of character; quiet; comfortable; friendly. We would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here for 8 days while visiting Sydney. Our room was beautifully decorated to period, comfortable, clean and super quiet. B&B is a short walk to central railway station, cafes and entertainment. Price was fantastic for location. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The lavender room is my favourite. Great view and comfortable cast iron bed.

Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely B&B in the heart of Surry Hills. We stayed in the ensuite room which was beautifully decorated and featured a large sparkling bathroom with a small private balcony. The balcony was lovely on a sunny morning and also to watch the sun go down over the city scape.The owners were helpful and friendly and we knew we could call on them for anything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Our room was serviced daily with clean fresh towels provided. The guests also have free use of the very charming lounge and dining areas. The house is very quiet,and the noise from other guests minimal. In fact we were surprized that there were other people in the house as we did not hear them.
The house is in a great location with the Crown Street cafes and funky shops just a short stroll away. A 5 minute walk down the hill to Central takes you to the free bus (555) on which you can hop on and off around the city.
A lovely place to stay especially if you would like to avoid the souless hotel room and stay in a place with real old world charm. Many thanks to our hosts, we hope that we will stay here again in the future.

I am sitting in my room (the 'Green Room') at Brickfield Hill high up in Surrey Hills looking out over a Victorian landscape. One of the owners has just brought me a pot of (leaf) tea in what is a dreamy Victorian home. If it wasn't for the WiFi connecting my Mac to the world, and allowing me to write to you, I could swear I had been transported back to 1880 Sydney, complete with the stillness of the era.
This is a tremendous find and had been recommended by a friend who travels frequently to Sydney.
Breakfast an hour ago (which indeed must be ordered, as this is much more a pensione than a B&B) was endless, was in the dining room with the two others guests here today. What is refreshing about staying somewhere like this is that you get to know the other guests (or not, as you please).
The house is in the middle of Surrey Hills, which itself is an amazing place. It's quiet with wonderful cafes, restaurants and boutiques and I would say, no more than 5 minutes by taxicab to the city centre.
This place has got everything. It's got the charm, the right price (and cheap at that...) and a very non-stated service, and from what I've noticed over the past 3 days, the owners have got the right attitude: friendly, but not friends; they are helpful to a fault 'Professional' I think is the correct description. I have felt very welcomed here indeed and it has changed my view of Sydney forever.

After booking at this location that advertises as a B&B, we were advised that there would be and additional charge for breakfast! Quite confusing. Being small business owners ourselves in the service industry, we were quite shocked at the cold response we were given each time we came and went. We imagined all sorts of things, but stayed at this location because of convenience. We're all for supporting gay business, and are very dissappointed in our treatment. Even a FORCED smile of congeniality would have been nice. We now jokingly refer to Surrey Hills as Surly Hills. Sorry, can't recommend. Bryan and Edward, California

BrickfieldHill, Owners at Brickfield Hill, responded to this review, 4 February 2010
We were saddened and confused by this very secretive guest's review. Our staff only saw him and his partner once on arrival and once more on departure. On both occasions we were polite and helpful. Breakfast was served to the other guests every day of their stay, and they mentioned this on departure when we discussed the laughter coming from the dining room every morning. We have a very loyal following. A great many of our repeat guests are in hospitality. None of them would recognize this uneven description of Brickfield Hill.

Was referred here by a nearby B&B (Govenors on Fitzroy) which was sold out. I was warmly greeted and allowed to wander on my own (my preference) or ask for assistance at any time. Got great directions and recommendations. Close to everything, walked everywhere. I'd love to go back.
