“Good location in Sydney”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

We enjoyed our visit. The guesthouse is in a lovely part of Sydney, where you can walk to a wide choice of restaurants and to a nice park on the waterfront. Frequent buses connect you to the inner city (about 20 minutes).

We found the Verona to be spotless, orderly and extremely well equipped. They supply current newspapers and magazines and nice places to read them. The eat-in kitchen with its breakfast supplies is available any time of day. I would have preferred two or three small breakfast tables to the very cluttered large one, where you have to sit closer to strangers than is comfortable. However, there are other areas for the less sociable.

Glebe Point is a peninsula. The street has some local traffic during the day but not much at night, so a front room was no problem for us. The bed was ve

When planning to come to Sydney for a weekend, and not wanting to stay on the coast we picked this place as it was close to the city and we hadn't been to Glebe before.

It is what the name suggests, a guesthouse and a very good one. The rooms are good and the layout with a big, well equipped kitchen with cereal, fruit, juice, eggs, tea, coffee and so on is excellent. The lounge with TV is great for travellers as you can sit and chat with others. The location is superb as there are a stack of good shops and restaurants up and down the road and the buses available to get around. Try the AB hotel or the Himalayan Char Grill.

The only thing to watch out for is parking. It's inner Sydney and while you can park in the street it is limited to two hours, Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm. They have a couple of reserved spots out the back got an extra charge.

Our room was good, ground floor at the front, but next time we'll try for one of the up stairs rooms with the balcony. The en suite was a bit tight for space (it is an old house after all) but clean.. Overall a pleasant place to stay.

Stayed one night over the weekend. No fuss, nice room friendly people. Top location and a great alternate to 4 start hotel accomodation. Rooms are simple but nice- bathroom a little on the small size but due to the historic building its in. Beds comfy

When we arrived we were told where everything was, which was good, didn't have to ask. Friendly staff, the rooms very clean, having a kitchen open 24/7 is a good idea. Great area with buses right outside to the CBD. We will diffently be back next time in Syd. Thank u for a lovely stay. From Nth QLD.

The guest house was in an area close to great cafes and interesting shops. A frequent bus service to Circular Quay ran past the door and the light rail was just a short walk away. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The manager was available and helpful. Breakfast was available at anytime and the kitchen was well stocked with a range of breakfast foods.

Room Tip: Rooms on ground floor avoided stairs

In April, we had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at this lovely B&B. The location is perfect, on a very interesting street and just a short ride to Circular Key and downtown Sydney. The room was very comfortable and even had very large bath towels, not something you get at too many places. The kitchen was well stocked with many options for breakfast, including fresh fruit and espresso coffee. Our host and his daughter were always available, always pleasant and helpful and never obtrusive. This will undoubtably become our home away from home in Sydney. See you again in August.
