From the first phone contact with Kevin it was clear we were onto something when we found this gem of a B&B online. Kevin couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming when we arrived for our stay, showing us our lovely ensuite room and explaining features before giving us a tour of the dining room where we were to enjoy a generous continental breakfast in the morning as well as inviting us to use the kitchen. This B&B has been faithfully restored by Kevin over the past 15 years and the early Australian native animal prints adorning the walls in the halls just give it just that much more wow. The decor is akin to what we've experienced at the Stamford Plaza Circular Quay. The beds are firm and comfortable with generous plumped pillows. The ensuite clean, spacious, functional and contemporary. The period decor doesn't mean you don't have all mod cons as there was also a concealed fridge, large LCD TV and hair drier as well as plenty of storage for your things. Electronic keyed doors which were wide to accommodate wheeling beds in and out in the buildings nursing home days but just made the place seem even more stately. Wi-Fi is available though not free. There is no traffic noise.
It was hard leaving Darcys so we lingered in the gorgeous gardens before heading back to Canberra and planning our next trip there. So glad I read other reviews and chose Darcys and will recommend this special experience to colleagues, family and friends.
