From communication to enquire about availability thru booking to being greeted on arrival, we felt welcomed by David. The B&B is an absolutely charming property, very sympathetically restored to give a warm and welcoming place to stay. David is very welcoming, makes himself available if required but is very unobtrusive. His local knowledge and recommendations on places to visit was... More

I had five days in Sydney between 25th-29th March and booked in to stay at Brickfield Hill having read so many positive reviews about it online. Suffice to stay, Brickfield Hill lived up to my expectations and from the moment I arrived it was a pleasure to be there. David met me on the morning of 25th and was extremely... More

The good things about Brickfield Hill: It's a magnificent, well-maintained late-Victorian four storey terrace, well-located in what I think is the best restaurant and cafe part of Sydney. David and the staff are very helpful and responsive, and at $130 a night, this is not bad value. Rooms are very clean, and the plumbing is up to date. There are... More

Nice, quiet street in close proximity to great restaurants, shops and nightlife. Easy walk to Central station. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Great historic building, and friendly, helpful host. Shared bathroom facilities, but one room available with ensuite.

This beautifully restored 1885 Victorian terrace house is well situated for a visit to Sydney since it is a 10 minute walk from Central Station but right away from tourist mania, making it very peaceful at night and a joy to walk around. I stayed in a second floor en suited room which was scrupulously clean, fresh-smelling and very comfortable.... More

This is a quiet yet fun neighborhood with great cafes. David is a really helpful host. Ask him for recommendations about transport and eating. You can walk to downtown and the harbor through parks and the Botanic Gardens. Just right.

Brickfield Hill is a delight. All previously reviews apply so if you care about tea making and uneven floors go elsewhere. If you adore heritage well done, ambience, detail and delight... Don't look further and book here. As for insects, they were here before us and the diffuser was effective. I wandered out for breakfast to the Orto Trading company... More

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.

“Because of the stairs, this accommodation does not suit people with mobility issues. Not all rooms have en suites. It is a quiet neighbourhood and so I think all 4 rooms would afford a good night's sleep.”

“If it's available and you have the money first floor with own bath ! Otherwise 2nd floor with 4 poster and balcony.”

“There's only room with its own bathroom and that's on the first floor so not too many stairs either”

“We stayed in the Lavender room. Top floor. Probably do not choose this room if you don't want to climb stairs. Also the bed in this room was quite high off the floor, so perhaps don't choose this if you have mobility issues. But for us, it was perfect!!”
