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.

wonderful place to stay in Sydney..Gracious hostess and impeccable place..Close to Tram so sightseeing into the city is easy to do after walking about 3 to 5 minutes..Lovely home..
Beautiful accommodation,close to transport, lovely host
We had a wonderful time in Charlottes cozy blue house. From the first moment we felt welcome. Lilyfield and Balmain are so nice, espacially with kids. A lot of shops, cafes and restaurants. And it is so close to the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. We often went by Ferryboat. Thank you Charlotte for your good ideas what to do, the flowers and all the other things. You were a wonderful host.
Charlotte, the host was wonderful. The whole stay was easy, and I wish we had the time to stay longer. The house was very lovely and the bathroom was spectacular! There was fresh fruit and breakfast.
My wife and I stayed at Lilyfield for the two days between our marriage and honeymoon. It was a delightful setting to relax and unwind in. The place has lovely quaint little touches and a warmth to it, added to welcomed elements such as very modern and large bathrooms. Charlotte was the perfect host: quick to respond to questions,helpful with suggestions - even securing a fan to help make the place even cooler. We were very happy with our stay and I was very grateful that my wife loved the place!!
We would recommend Lilyfield Guest House as a wonderful place to stay. So comfortable, with sparkling bathrooms, delightful bedrooms and lovely crockery - perfect for our week long stay. Charlotte was so welcoming and friendly and gave us good ideas for places to eat and to visit.
We had a fabulous break at the Lilyfield guesthouse. Charlotte is a great host. The guest house is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It is centrally located to main shopping areas and public transport making it very easy to get around. In highly recommend the guest house for a Sydney getaway.
Wonderful house, great welcome, superb experience. Very good access to City with lightrail - we haven't used the car once. Will surely visit again. Luc
Charlotte is very responsive and a thoroughly prepared host. The place is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms are quaint and the bathrooms are modern, which is a great combination. The bedrooms, separate bathroom, and lounge are also spacious. Charlotte is very thoughtful and meticulous with the interior design and down to the choice of toiletries and jam spread provided. My family enjoyed having a separate section which included a lounge, where we could play monopoly (board games provided) before retiring to bed. Breakfast was a good spread served with lovely china. My family really enjoyed our stay and wished we were staying for more than one night. We would love to return if we pop by Sydney again.
