The Gold Room is just 5 minutes walk to the city bus, pubs, Balmain shops, many coffee shops and restaurants. Balmain is an easy 15 minutes on bus or ferry from the centre of the CBD. We are on Palmer street, near Booth street. 11 minutes walk to the Ferry. Unrestricted free car parking nearby. You’ll love it because of the neighbourhood, the comfy bed, your own Foxtel, privacy, quiet, music, your private spacious bathroom with heated floor (and bath), the kitchen, everything!
Ours is a multi story heritage terrace dating from 1895. It is just five minutes from the centre of Balmain. Our place is clean and comfortable. Note that this gorgeous old place was built in 1895 so the stairs are steep and narrow. There are 12 up from the street, then 18 up to your room. We can help you carry your bags if need be. Also the Gold Room is quite small - you can access the queen bed from all sides, and there are small bedside stands for water or a phone, along with a power board each side of the bed. Your private en-suite bathroom on the other hand is quite large. Some people stash an extra bag downstairs - we are very flexible. Once you're settled in, you'll love it!
You have The Gold Room which is a small bedroom with queen bed, wardrobe and air conditioner / heater. Included is your own brand new private bathroom with heated floor and bathtub. We have infinite hot water! The Gold Room is upstairs, facing the rear of the property so it is very quiet. You have your own Foxtel with FX channel and movies plus Bluetooth sound bar for your music. You can also rent premium movies and pay us on an honour system.
Early arrival: if the room was not occupied the previous night, we can make it ready for an early arrival from 7am - by PRIOR arrangement. If unavailable, we can check you in, stash your bags, and you can have a shower in our downstairs bathroom by PRIOR arrangement - so that this fits around our household routine (some days we actually go to work early!) We would expect that you then go explore Balmain, and not sit on the couch waiting around as that would be weird.
Общение с гостями
Whatever you prefer! We are generous, happy people - if you want a home cooked meal we can cook for you (small charge applies) - you can cook for yourself, of course.
Другие важные подробности
We have two small friendly Maltese Terriers confined to the lower level, plus a friendly 20 year old daughter confined to the lower front room! All of them are well trained and sociable on request.
A couple of notes - it is a small room, and we have steep stairs as it is an old house. 12 stairs up from the street, 18 stairs up to The Gold Room.
Smoking out back is fine so long as you shut the door! Let us know what food you have added to the fridge, to avoid hungry late night food raid by daughter or her friends.... (unlikely but slightly possible).
