We. Had a fabulous time. The house was perfect, in a great area and very clean and beautiful. I would recommend charlotte's place for anyone going to Sydney. Thanks Charlotte for opening your home.
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.
Lovely accommodation, close to transport. Charlotte is an excellent and welcoming host. I return to Sydney from time to time and am looking forward to staying at this beautiful, meticulously maintained accommodation once again. Highly recommended.
It's really great & beautiful house for stay, location nice, surrounding very comfortable. We are all enjoyable and happy to stay in this house. Thanks so much Charlotte.
Thank you Charlotte for a very enjoyable experience. The guest house was immaculately clean and perfectly located for our wedding reception at La Montage. Our bed was super comfortable and we loved the sitting area. I will be recommending Lilyfield Guest House to my friends.
This place was perfect! I was so proud to take my family there. Charlotte could not have been better. Good attention to detail and even a tablet all wifi'ed and ready to use. We were a little late checking out but she maintained her lovely graceful and caring attitude. Big thanks Charlotte.
Our experience staying in the beautiful Lilyfield Guesthouse was nothing less than perfect. Great location an easy walk to fabulous food, great pubs & coffee. A quick cab ride anywhere. Charlotte was a helpful warm & gracious host, her home is stunning and there was nothing amiss with great attention to every detail ensuring our comfort. We only required a one night stay on a weekend, I had been finding it difficult to find for 2 couples, Charlotte responded promptly and it wasn't a problem. I would love to stay again & highly recommend Lilyfield Guesthouse.
Beautifully decorated .
Fantastic location .
Thanks Charlotte .
We stayed at Charlotte's for 4 four days and were very happy with the lovely property that she provides. It is very private, in a great location, a 5min walk to the light rail and a ten minute walk to the three weeds restaurant in which Charlotte recommended to us. Wonderful for a special occasion. As far as Charlotte's children we never heard a word.
We had a week in Sydney and staying at Lilyfield Guest House was a huge success - beautiful, stylish, comfortable and very accessible but with the benefit of being in a lovely leafy suburb. Charlotte is a fabulous host - she thought of everything we might need and is a font of knowledge giving us some great recommendations re places to eat, shop and visit. The icing on the cake was Charlotte getting up at 3am to see us off and make sure that our taxi arrived and we had no issues catching our very early flight.
Thank you for everything Charlotte - we are already recommending you and will be definitely be back.
