This guesthouse is in a lovely, high-ceilinged victorian house. It's very clean and airy and bright. The 'commute' to it, via ferry on Sydney harbour, is an absolute delight.
Hosts are very charming, and showed us round, giving us coffee even though we were very early checking in (flight gets in at 7AM- We went straight there!) Breakfasts are serve-yourself, bread (toast) juice, jam, fruit, cereals. There are fridges in the room to store food, and you can use the kitchen if you want to cook.
Only downside it that is under the flightpath somewhat; the planes stop at night,thankfully, but start at 630-ish. This may bother some people; I liked watching the planes go overhead.
Shared bathrooms - ours was over the hall, and we never had to wait. 2 bathrooms on our floor, plus one extra lavatory. All super-clean, lots of bath mats/soaps etc. Large, spacious showers.
