A swish, three-star, harbour-front B&B just seven minutes by ferry from Circular Quay, this pretty, rambling house boasts spotless facilities and ample bathrooms.

The guest lounge offers cable TV and wireless internet access, and the dining room serves dinner five nights a week. The pet-friendly policy means the critters can come too.
