We are a family of 4 with two young boys both under 12 at the time of our visit. We spent five days at Cecil Street B&B in April 2016. Linda is a warm and generous hostess. Adding small touches that make a huge difference (won't spoil the surprise and it may be different for each person/family). The rooms are... More

Owner was very responsive and well organised. My room was charming with pretty touches everywhere - even a bunch of fresh yellow roses on the dresser - nice bathroom and facilities. The owner, Linda, went out of her way to look after me.

We had a wonderful 3 nights at Cecil St B&B whilst in Sydney. Linda is such a lovely hostess and makes one feel completely at home. The breakfasts were delicious, the bedrooms so comfortable and we loved the gorgeous little tv lounge. Can't wait to go back!

Linda is a fantastic hostess from start to finish. Picked us up and dropped us to the Manly Ferry even. 5-10 min walk to Manly's Center so it was a quieter residential place to stay with a modernised rustic charm. Highly recommend this place and I will definitely choose this B&B again

I stayed for five nights with my wife and small daughter Ellie (8 months old). Linda is an amazing hostess, that makes you feel so welcome, she was incredibly friendly and helpful, and makes a killer breakfast.. the mango-strawberry yogurt is almost addictive. If we ever come to Sydney again, we know where to stay!
