With lovely original features and period furnishings, Lilyfield Guest House is an elegant, restful home away from home.


Nestled between Balmain and Leichhardt in Sydney's inner west, Lilyfield Guest House is surrounded by award-winning restaurants, pubs, shops, weekend markets, playgrounds and parks. Darling Street, Norton Street, Balmain Tigers' home ground, Le Montage function centre, Leichhardt Acquatic Centre and The Bay Run are all less than ten minute's walk away. Sydney city centre is less than five minutes by car, or 15 minutes by lightrail - the station a two minute walk away. Sydney's beaches and the airport are a 25 minute drive.

The ensuite room has a top of the range Sleepmaker innerspring queen mattress while the second bedroom has a Sealy latex queen mattress, both are dressed with 1000 thread-count linen and luxurious white towels are supplied. The beds have dual control electric blankets and the bathrooms are fitted with heated towel rails.

The wide-screen tv in the lounge/sitting room is equipped with Foxtel.

  • Thank-you for your hospitality, a warm and very comfortable stay.
    Thanks for being so child friendly and accommodating.

  • Charlotte was extremely helpful and happy to oblige us with all our requests during our 5 night stay. Lilyfield Guest House was perfect to stay in; the rooms and bathrooms were beautifully renovated and very comfortable. Breakfast provisions were great and couldn't have asked for a better variety. The house is situated on a very quiet street within easy walking distance to the light rail station and very close to the city. We would highly recommend staying here and would love to return.

  • Our host Charlotte was fabulous, very helpful and accommodating. She allowed us to check in early , drop our bags off early so as we could get out and about without them. Then she let us check out and leave our gear there all day until we wanted to collect it before heading to the airport. We really appreciated that.
    We felt Charlotte was very generous with our breakfast options and loved being able to help ourselves. The special little touches on the table, chocolate biscuits, freshly squeezed orange juice and the best coffee selection ever really made our stay fantastic. Oh and the beds and lovely linen were so comfortable and delicious...not to mention the two very nice bathrooms...with toiletries.

    This location was perfect for us, so close to the city but so nice and quiet! Very hard to find often.

    I will definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a easy special little sanctuary to stay at while in Sydney.

  • I have on many occasions stayed in Sydney at chain apartments. This time we decided to use Airbnb as I had success in using it previously and again was not disappointment.

    Charlotte is lovely, professional and a wonderful host. The location perfect only minutes from the lightrail, restaurants and very close to the city.

    The house is beautiful and clearly loving restored. The bedrooms very generous in size, very comfortable beds and beautiful linen. The bathrooms are so luxurious, the main bathroom is enormous with the most inviting bath.

    If you are looking for a location that is close to the city and the comfort of home you can't go past this house and Charlotte.

  • Anyone going to Sydney would be foolish to not stay at the Lilyfield Guest House. Charlotte was a wonderful hostess that went above and beyond several times when we had special needs. The home is lovely, warm and beautifully furnished. Staying in a neighborhood was an extra bonus, as we rode the light rail everyday with "locals" and learned much about the area that we wouldn't have staying in a hotel. The light rail station is only a block and a half away, as are bus lines. The eight days we stayed in Sydney were made better by staying here!!!

  • The house was exquisite and Charlotte was a lovely host. Would definitely stay there again.

  • This was a really wonderful place to stay. The house is perfect--clean, comfortable, quiet only begin to describe the experience. The neighborhood, too, is charming and quiet but an easy ride on the light rail to Central Station (although we really loved taking the bus to the Balmain East wharf and the ferry into Central Quay.). Charlotte was a perfect host; she was quick to answer questions and help with information but never intrusive. The coffee machine was a great perk to have! Couldn't have had a better experience in Sydney.

  • Lilyfield B and B was an ideal spot for our jet lagged family to recover from our trip from the UK. The rooms are simple and comfortable and the bathrooms are luxurious. Charlotte is the perfect host with all the little details attended to and she couldn't do enough for us before and during our stay, including collecting parcels from the post office! The location is peaceful, but in easy reach of the city on the light rail or buses and ferries. Thoroughly recommended as an alternative to chain hotels and apartments.

I love living in Lilyfield with my beautiful family. Just 5mins to Sydney city with enough space for the kids, close to the bay, fabulous pubs and restaurants, weekend markets and wonderful shops. I am now hosting two funky studios on Bondi Beach as well which is so exciting. It is such a vibrant area of Sydney which makes for a great holiday! I look forward to taking guests through all the amazing things the innerwest, eastern suburbs and greater Sydney has to offer and then leaving them to explore, enjoy and relax.
