We wanted to stay in the Bondi area and this B & B was wonderful. Close to shops, train - we had no trouble getting around Sydney from here. Even the airport was easy to get to. The staff could not do enough to help us and everything was tidy and clean. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed 6 nights spread between the Bennett St and Paul St properties, we shifted so we could have a private bathroom when we discovered that was an option. Both places are within fairly easy walking distance of Bondi Junction (bus and train station) and Bondi or Bronte Beaches. The managers of each property were really friendly and helpful in all...

We stayed at Sinclairs Paul street and thought it had a great atmosphere. The staff who work there were really friendly and accommodating, the rooms and common areas were always clean. We had one of the rooms without a bathroom so had to use the shared bathroom which I was a bit unsure of before we stayed having used shared...

A premises that promises so much yet sadly delivers so little. Basic hygiene is a must whether your a 5 star or a backpackers hostel. Failure to service rooms is unforgivable. Towels and bed linen well passed their sell by date should be dumped. Sinclairs failed on most fronts - we were stuck and had no choice.

Stayed two nights in June. Cosy and clean room with comfy bed. Room and bed were slightly on the small side. The owner was friendly and was good about storing our bags. Safe and secure. An easy 10min walk to both Bondi Beach and Bondi Junction. Many places to eat nearby. Central Sydney is close by train. Room was cold...

I stayed at Sinclairs at the Bennett street property and also the Paul street location as I flew into sydney and then out again 1 month later. If possible I would ask for the Paul street location as its much better than Bennett street for many reasons including: - much cleaner with pollished floor boards - better managed- barry runs...

My husband and I enjoyed a great overnight stay at Sinclair's on Paul Street. After a long flight from the US we needed somewhere to rest and recoup before flying home to Western Australia. It was very secure, quiet and clean with lots of old world charm. So close to Bondi Beach, Westfield shopping centre and inner Sydney. It was...

I had a wonderful stay at Sinclairs, my Double room with ensuite and Kitchenette I was very comfortable, clean and I felt very safe. I was initially concerned about only having an overhead fan, especially arriving on the Hottest day in Sydney's history! But I was comfortably cool and that's saying something being from Melbourne! The other travellers, a lot...

“The queen sized room at the front was spacious, but had night traffic. The double room at the back was quieter in terms of traffic noise, but the walls were a bit thin, so you could hear your neighbours.”
