The hotel is conveniently located a short walk from Central railway station. We discovered a number of excellent restaurants and cafes nearby. There is a supermarket close by for supplies. We found the staff friendly and helpful.

We just returned yesterday from an 8 night stay at this hotel. We were dropping off our daughter at Hillsong college and the location was perfect for us as it was about midway between the college and the Central Railway station. The walk to the railway station was only about 10 minutes and from there you have access to many... More

While the staff who run this establishment do their best in assisting guests, they have very little to work with when it comes to the overall lack of decent facilities. Our family booked 4 rooms to attend a family wedding. We booked this hotel as it was close proximity to the wedding and the photos appeared to be OK. The... More

Each time you have to go down to reception or after hours call the contact number. Terrible. Excuse was that someone... More

Thank you for your feedback. While I was pleased you received good service from our front desk, I was very disheartened to read about your overall experience at Central Railway Hotel. Unfortunately we did have an issue with a hot water system shorting out our power supply. This also effected the level of hot water supplied to our guests for... More

The hotel is 600 m from Central making it extremely convenient to move around. Room is clean, sheets, towels etc are well kept. The best is their staff, very helpful even though the front desk not available in the night. There is no lift, but i am sure if any one has a constraint the staff will help. Some times... More

The setting of your hotel was very nice and the rooms were very nicely set out, really enjoyed it.

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.
