Dear Guest, We truly appreciate your great review. Look forward to assisting with future accommodation needs. Just for information we would love to sell very cheap beer. However our beers are actually priced slightly higher. $3.50 for a Light Beer & $4 for full strength. The Juices & soft drinks are the $3 variety. Regards Owen Reception More

The McLaren Hotel provides a refreshing dose of old-fashioned hospitality in the heart of North Sydney. The property is a fantatsic historic building in a quiet street only minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city and within walking distance of the train station. After 24hrs of travelling from the USA I was desperate for somewhere to freshen up... More

Arriving after a 24 hour flight, late at night, all was done to make sure we were in safe and sound, The room was large and welcoming. All facilities were above expectation for this extremely well situated and not over the top, priced hotel.

Solo traveller very warm welcome from staff, stayed in a deluxe terrace room, just lovely. A new restaurant down the road (Italian ) delivers to the hotel, breakfast in the atrium very nice. Would recommend as a B & B style and would definately stay again. Well Done Mclaren !

We stayed three nights in May and were glad we chose this hotel for its charming style and gracious decor. Located in a leafy street in North Sydney, it is quiet, away from the city's noise, and yet accessible to central Sydney by the North Sydney train station which is about a 1 km walk away. Then it is just... More

Spent a few nights at the Mclaren Hotel and was impressed with the friendly staff, room size, free parking onsite and general location in North Sydney. Rooms are very affordable with a reasonably priced continental breakfast - something that you don't get in the big hotels. It was easy to get to public transport to get around Sydney and there...

We were in Sydney visiting friends and stayed 2 nights at the McLaren Hotel . It was a great choice for us - close access to everything we needed - bridge, harbour, railway station and restaurants. We especially like that we didn't have to pay a high price for a huge cooked breakfast we didn't want. The buffet continental breakfast... More

We had a quick one night stopover at The McLaren Hotel on Saturday 31 May 2014. We had early bird booked a Deluxe King Room. The hotel phoned a few days ahead to confirm our booking and check our estimated time of arrival. So when we arrived the receptionist was ready for us. She was polite, helpful and attentive. She...

We were only here overnight and it certainly met our needs. The room was adequate but bathroom very small - the shower area was tiny. The king size bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast for $8 was also adequate. When we returned from our evening out, there was no parking available underground. Having said this, its probably one of the better hotels... More

We booked for two nights, needing near access to Bradley's Head for a Wedding. We also booked four other rooms for family and friends. Needing easy access for two of our party with mobility issues, the layout of the Hotel and the requested rooms, met our needs.
