We had no idea where this hotel was in Sydney, in relation to other places we wanted to visit, but the price was OK and service was great. A little far from downtown and the harbors, but within easy walk to bus line and train station. Room had a full-size Jacuzzi and a small patio (very small) outside. Only negative... More

Dear Marlene B, Thank you so much for your positive review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Garden-Lodge. A very new feature of Sydney’s public transport, the light rail, has just opened a station near us at Taverner’s Hill. Only a two-minute walk from the motel, the light rail runs direct to Star City Casino,... More

It is a Motel, not a Hotel. Service was very good. Close to a railway station and a public bus station heading to the city. Close, 10min walk, to Sunny Hill suburb with nice cafes, restaurants and liquor shop.

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was well appointed and clean. Front desk staff was very helpful. The location was great. Not too far from Summer Hill Station which meant you were just 10 minutes away from Central Station.

Thank God we arrived late and were leaving early!!! The carpet was HORRIBLY dirty through out the lobby the hallway leading to our room and in our room! Yuck! I did NOT walk barefoot!

I stayed here for 3 nights over the New Year's holiday. Although it is not perfect, I think it's a reasonably priced hotel for such an expensive city. The GOOD: -Very convenient location. There is a bus stop outside that will take you to most of the downtown areas in 20-30 minutes; if there's no traffic I think you might... More

Hopefully the owners take some time to do some basic cleaning. We arrived and were given a room at the front of the hotel. No windows in the room. A door that opens to a balcony onto a main highway that is noisy. The room stunk of cigarette smoke. The room is best described as grubby. Dirty fridge as well.... More

The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We were lucky to get a room at the back of the motel so it was quiet. The rooms do not come with hand towels or flannels so if using these is important to you bring your own. Our room was spacious and the bed comfy. There was a problem using the balcony... More
