Just spent two nights at the best B&B ever. Gracious hosts, Brom and Julian, looked after our every need. Had a splendid breakfast each day - yum cha if we wanted, in addition to the normal bacon and eggs, etc. The second breakfast also included some Indian delights, as there was a young Indian couple staying and Brom cooked up some steamed 'Idlies' stuffed with cashews and coriander for them (we just had to try!). Julian was the chauffeur extraordinaire and picked us up at Central Railway Station and also dropped us back. He also provided us with transport to Bondi (which is a bit difficult to get to) knowing that we were very limited for time. B&J also recommended a nearby restaurants on their website. La Ricetta was fantastic - best food I have had in ages with a 10% discount when we mentioned where we were staying (will do a separate review for this), Thanks Brom and Julian - we had a terrific couple of days and we will certainly be returning.
