Sydney

Friends House Devonshire Street Sydney


Friends House, 119 Devonshire Street, Surry Hills, is a tranquil place in the inner city. Less than five minutes walk from Central station, close to the business district, shops, restaurants, cafes and all forms of transport yet imbued with the calm you would expect in a heritage building that has held Meeting for Worship for over a hundred years. Fully refurbished in 1999, there are four guest rooms available: one single, two doubles and a twin single. The modest room tariffs include a continental breakfast.
UPDATE: Friends House will be closed for renovations at various times from January until April 2017. Construction of the Sydney Light Rail in Devonshire Street has commenced and we are under notice that there will be intermittent extremely disruptive periods of work with all night time noise restrictions waived for the first quarter of 2017. The day-to-day schedule of construction is unreliable and rather than disturb our guests we have chosen to use this time to improve some of the facilities. Please do not hesitate to contact us during this period for an update on the current status.
