Our first time here, and it was a great experience. Very professional friendly staff, made us feel welcome. I am gluten free, and I can say that the chef has breakfast down to a science! Thank you!

Greatly enjoyed our stay in Sidney

Beautiful Inn in Lovely Sidney by the Sea

We were so fortunate to be able to book with the Beacon Inn rather last minute, they must have and a cancellation, good luck for us. We had a flight change and had to leave at 6am so didn't get to enjoy the Inn as much as we would have liked to. As we would miss breakfast our Hostess packed us a bagged breakfast of muffin and fruit which was very kind. Our room was upgraded with no extra charge to the suite which is very large and lovely. Will go back next time we visit the area.

Two Day Getaway

We were greeted upon arrival by a very welcoming staff who escorted us to our room and explained all the amenities. She also provided suggestions for dining in Sydney. The room was immaculate and very comfortably decorated. Our breakfast both mornings was delicious. We will definitely return to the Beacon Inn at Sydney.

Lovely, friendly B&B

We stayed at Beacon Inn in early August. The staff were excellent, the breakfast was great too. Good position. The person that designed this modern Edwardian guest house did an incredible job with meticulous attention to detail--charming!

Beautiful and convenient lodging

We stayed at the Beacon Inn for a full week and enjoyed it thoroughly. The bed was very comfy and the staff were exceedingly friendly - especially Syd. Only reason for not five stars across the board was two days we had housekeeping glitcheqs where we got back and room hadn’t been cleaned Obviously this does not happen often and apologies were profuse. We would stay again in a heartbeat. So conveniently close to the ocean, restaurants, pubs, and stores. And the breakfasts were delicious and well prepared. Would definitely recommend this B&B!!

The receptionist was warm and helpful. The room was perfect as this B&B had exactly what we were looking for: a quiet, quaint, kid free opportunity to relax and enjoy an evening of peace. Breakfast was just right as well! Thank you so much! We are sure to visit again!
