"This is by no means my first trip to Sydney, and I could not have done better ... Staying there really was a home from home - comfortable, relaxed & incredible breakfasts – the table they keep is the best I have ever happily noshed at. The pub across the road is great, particularly after Peter and Declan introduce you round – they appear to know everyone, as well as vast amounts of local history. Tara, the resident dog, was also a perfect host and good company to boot. Staying at Ardmore House will give you an opportunity to taste the real Sydney’s diverse, easy-going, forthright and generally sunny nature – cannot recommend staying there highly enough."

"My husband and I stayed with Declan and Peter for 2 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed their company and that of Tara, their dog. The house is charming and very clean. It is also across the street from a great pub and restaurant. Declan and Peter took us there for a beer and introduced us to the neighbourhood!!! They were great hosts full of information and suggestions. The breakfasts are sumptuous and delicious. We would definitely recommend this B&B."

"My husband and I stayed in a lot of nice B&Bs during our trip through Australia but Ardmore House was special! Peter's and Declan's outstanding hospitality made our stay in Sydney unforgettable. The rooms and the bathroom were spotlessly clean, the breakfast delicious and dog Tara is cuddly! We also did the Sydney tour they offer and it is really worth it if you want to see more than on regular city tours. Ardmore House is absolutely recommendable!"

"My four days at Ardmore House in Sydney/Newtown were wonderful! The owners, Peter and Declan, are warm and funny. I felt thoroughly at home. Dec serves up a different, delicious breakfast every morning! Peter took me out for personalized walking tours of Sydney and the Newtown neighborhood. They really made my stay in Sydney a unique and memorable one."

"If Sydney is your first stop, and the first time in Australia, the Ardmore is one of those rare gems of a place that will ease your transition, especially after a long journey and truly make you feel welcome. This is one of those places you will likely reflect upon about your past travels and put Australia, then Sydney and obviously the Ardmore House in your future travel plans."

"Great hosts - a great location - a great time. I was is Sydney for job interviews, and Declan and Peter offered fantastic support."

General Information: Welcome to Ardmore House near the centre of Sydney, Australia ... a fine example of the high Italianate style of architecture, common in Australia in the mid-late nineteenth century. Built in the 1870's, it has been carefully restored to its period, with marble fire-places, moulded plaster ceilings, and polished wooden floors and iron-lace balconies.

Ardmore House is an elegant free standing terrace house, redolent with the atmosphere of its age. A beautiful semi-tropical garden allows guests to have breakfast under the spreading eucalypts whilst watching the native parrots feeding.

"We just returned home to Germany form our first ever trip to Sydney. We stayed at the Ardmore House for 2.5 weeks and had a wonderful time. The house is a nicely renovated Victorian house located in a quiet street close to a park. The two rooms they rent out both have access to a balcony ... We highly recommend staying there if you want something different from a standard modern type hotel room."

"My husband and I stayed at many different B&B's during our month long vacation to New Zealand and Australia. The Ardmore House was our last stop before we had to head home. This was the BEST B&B on our trip. The food at the B&B was wonderful and the places they took us to eat were great also! We could not have seen so much of Sydney without taking their amazing tour. Peter and Declan are wonderful people and if we get to go back someday, wouldn't hesitate to visit with them again. We had a blast!!!!!! I would say that we made two special friends and the memories will last a lifetime!"

"The extraordinary service provided by the hosts of Ardmore House, Peter and Declan, began as they picked us up at the airport, accommodating our 10:30 p.m. arrival, and delivering us to their charming house in funky Newtown ... As appealing as Sydney's landscapes, museums, opera house, and exotic animals are, it is getting to know people like Peter and Declan that provides the best travel experience of all. While the cost of these lodgings is low, the value in terms of satisfaction is priceless!"
