This dear little hotel is about 5 minutes from Central station.. Small apartment style,the hotel staff are friendly,professional and helpful. The apartment has a microwave,kettle,great TV,airconditioning,2 rooms,a small with couch and TV, and the bigger room with VERY comfy bed. I have stayed at cheaper places and had nothing but a bed and a loo.

My daughter and I stayed at the Central Railway Hotel for 2 nights. We found the service that we received throughout our stay was of a very high standard. The room was very well presented and very clean would suit a family. They allowed us to stow our luggage on the day of check in and even on our departure.... More

Stayed here for 5 nights for a trade show (at Moore Park). By far the most economically friendly hotel in the area. the hotel was clean, the staff was very helpful, and the rooms were great. I had locals tell me that it used to be a bit of a rough neighborhood, but I couldn't tell, the neighborhood seems to... More

Reasonable rate, clean and situated at a nice, quaint location. We had a good 7-10 minutes breezy walk to Central Railway Station and 20 minutes walk to CBD. An ample free-flow of packet coffee and tea too!

It was great to have a kitchenette in the room and a couch to sit on. I did not like the shower being on a 20 cm platform and I would have preferred curtains rather than shades but for the price it was good value overall.

The Central Railway Hotel is about 10 mins walk from the Central Station, which is very convenient to us, plus the beautiful view we had while walking through the Prince Alfred Park to the station and back everyday. The room was good enough for the four of us (family with 2 kids)- 2 queen beds,mini pantry and a 2 seater... More

As two of a group of ten attending the Rotary International Convention at Olympic Park we found the location, approx. 900 metres to the Central Railway, very handy. It was on the main bus route into the City which was also great as we were able to ride straight to Circular Quay and the Rocks. Our room was clean and... More

We booked two rooms for family members for a wedding at $299 each for a Sunday night. The rooms were very clean but are overdue for an update particularly in the bathroom where there is no vanity shelf space and the shower head is very small. However the beds were very comfortable and there was little street noise on the... More

Traveling from Coffs Harbour arriving at Central Station only 5 minutes walk to the hotel was very welcome. The room on the second floor was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The beds were spacious, and comfortable, the shower was a bit small but worked fine. The air con/ heater didn't work properly so it was a little... More
