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. The rooms were all clean, tidy and comfortable with all equipment functional. The... More

I spent nearly a month in the McLaren in January/February this year and was delighted with it. Since my visit was split, I had two rooms each of which was large, light and comfortable with its own verandah to sit out on. The personnel and staff of the hotel were always friendly, obliging and helpful and the atmosphere more like... More

So glad that we stayed at the McLaren Hotel in North Sydney. It was easy to find driving in on Pacific Highway, has limited free parking, and is one of the most charming hotels we have stayed in. The greeting at Reception was friendly and then we were shown to our room, which was spacious and comfortable. There's not a... More

We stayed at the McLaren Hotel on the 7th & 8th Feb 2014 whilst in Sydney for a wedding. What a nice little Hotel.

On arrival greeted by an offer to share a complementary sherry or port in the ground floor lounge. The gentleman who greeted me was affable and informed me breakfast served from 7.15am, however given I needed to be out of the hotel and on my way by 7.00am this was a problem. My room was up a steep staircase and... More

I stayed here because I had some business nearby, and the hotel had free parking. The front part of the hotel is an old large house. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. The outlook was to a wall of a next door house. The hotel is in a business area, and arriving on a Sunday meant that... More

I stayed in the McLaren Hotel over the new year period and found it excellent value for money! Whilst the hotel appears a little dated, the staff were great and my room was more than adequate. The air con was great, shower was powerful and the bed was huge and very comfortable. I had a great nights sleep every night!... More

This was a pleasant find, our room had a king sized bed which was comfortable, and our room had everything we needed for a very reasonable price. A continental breakfast was an additional $8 which was very good value, the dining room was pleasant and surrounded by pretty gardens. Newspapers were available to read in the dining room.
