“We love it and will definitely be back!”
Reviewed 22 May 2011

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at Verona Guesthouse. The website is very basic so I expected the same from the guesthouse. We stayed there for several nights over Christmas 2010 and loved it. We were delighted with our accommodation, Ben, our host, and the location in Glebe. It felt like we were made welcome in a friend's beautiful home and also given plenty of space to do our own thing. This is ideal for us.

Our double bed and pillows were comfortable.

There is plenty to choose from for breakfast. The fact that it is self-serve means you can eat earlier or later if you choose. This is a bonus if you need to catch an early flight.

Buses to the CBD and Balmain are easy to catch from nearby bus stops. There are plenty of nice shops and cafes if you want to stay in Glebe.

Light sleepers might prefer a room at the rear of the guesthouse because Glebe Point Rd is a busy road.

I booked a 3 nights at the Verona Guest House for my parents who were visiting from Melbourne. My place isn’t conducive for overnight guests, and Verona had been recommended by a colleague. I’m pleased to say I couldn’t have found better – it has a welcoming, at-home feel; making it easy for me to spend some time with Mum and Dad before or after our day trips or dinners. We were welcome to sit and chat in the loungeroom, the back verandah or (my favourite!) the upstairs balcony, just off their room. The accommodation is clean, stylish, great value for the price, and a self-serve breakfast is included. It is a family-owned business with a friendly touch, and helpful information is always happily offered in terms of things to do, and local knowledge. Great place, great location.

Fabulous home, central location, minutes to UNI with bus stop across the road and great hosts! Ive travelled extensively and the value received at this property was tremendous. Kitchen was always open if you needed a cup of tea and toast.

Watch out for those bed bugs! Our stay was very pleasant until I ended up covered in bites from bed bugs (>150 itchy bites!!)! The owner admitted they were found in the room earlier, he thought the room was treated properly (I guess not!). We changed from room 5 to room 3 without treating luggage first, so there is a change they have spread. The owner believed they must have hidden in the mattress, so he got a new one. We got one night off as compensation.

Thankyou very much for your review. To the best of our knoweldge this is the only reported case of bed bugs we have found in ten years. We voluntarily had each room tested six months ago and there were no bed bugs to be found. On 17 February 2011, in response to your concerns, we had every room tested and retreated for bed bugs. Only room 5 was found to be contaminated and the mattress and all bedding has been replaced. We consider this to be a very serious issue and we will be testing each room on a minimum six-monthly basis. Thank you for bringing this so promptly to our attention.

We stayed here recently and found the Verona clean and comfortable, with a great brekky each morning. The location is great (close to a number of cafes and a short busride to Sydney CBD), parking easy and a very comfortable feel to the place. We will definitely be back!

Appreciative of the anytime use of lounge (with digital tv, dvd player, books, newspapers, magazines) and kitchen (well stocked and able to do own breakfasts - eggs, fruit, different cereals and breads, teas, coffee, toaster etc.). Nice that they don't come into your room during stay (unless you ask them to). Found it by chance when looking to move onto another place (although had seen good reviews before leaving UK), stayed 4 nights and liked it so much booked another 3 nights for following week. They even moved beds around in between to make it more spacious (had double and single beds - triple room). Get water in room, any hot drinks can make down in kitchen and bring up - there was a little table and chairs so could eat in room, but more fun chatting to other guests round kitchen table. Only 1 niggle was tv in our room hadn't good reception as only room not with cable. However, the 100s of stations on the one in lounge made up for it! Owner very helpful and keen to please. There are laundry facilities, but we didn't get to use them. Also has internet connection in room, but didn't get to use that either. Would stay there again.
