We stayed recently. The room was clean and overall well maintained. Squeezed into the shower. Bed was comfortable and slept well. Lounge was ok - not that comfortable. Parking overall good. No move channel. Breakfast was a typical mass production even though it wasn't that busy. I would assume they would now how many people were staying to plan out... More

Very old, creaky lift to room, but nice to have a door that opens to a small balcony - great view towards the harbour and fresh air. Very, very clean. Fast internet access. No fuss hotel. Ideal for regular business traveller whose company only funds 3 star accomm and only 5min walk to my office. Taxis at the door at... More

We were very impressed with the staff at this hotel. Very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable, but a little dated. You could tell they were old rooms that had just had a spruce up. Bathroom was tiny. The rest of the suite was spacious though - we had a separate main bedroom and then the kids had the fold... More

Stayed here because it was close to the expressway south out of Sydney. Overall impression was it needed to be refurbished. Bathroom exhaust fan didn't work, air conditioning was so noisy we turned it off. No disabled parking making disabled access difficult. Only 1 comfy chair in the room. It is a quiet location. Has plusses & minuses.

The bed is great, parking is easy and rooms very clean & tidy. I'd probably give this 3.5 stars overall. Couple of small points frustrated me 1. No movie channel or movies for hire, and 2. In room dining had an inflexible menu for their 'combos' by that I mean I could order pizza and pay an extra $4 for... More

This is quite possibly the most let down I have ever been for a hotel. You'd think that if you're booking a 4 star hotel... then the cleanliness and quality would be equivalent to 4 stars or above (shock horror!). When entering my room, there was a disgusting smell coming from the bathroom, like someone just used the toilet only... More

Given the previous reviews I wasn't expecting too much, to the point that I warned my wife this before we went into the room. Actually I was pleasantly surprised, room was clean, well appointed and bathroom was nice, water pressure in the shower was excellent. The minibar was very well stocked - although I couldn't find a price list, I'm... More
