We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was clean & comfortable. The door-less shower was a little odd, as others have pointed out, but the hot water was plentiful & we didn't mind a wet floor. The staff was very friendly. A minor negative is that the room window looks out onto the interior courtyard. As we had a... More

The manager was helpful and friendly when I reminded him I had requested a ground floor room and no stairs. (he had been observed going upstairs to check if our room... More

Stayed at Garden Lodge for 9 days last month. Wanted a place close to the city for work and departure for overseas trip. Although located right on Parramatta road I did not find traffic noise an issue. Found staff helpful and no problems with wifi. Location is near to Norton street and other good eateries. Room was clean.

It is an older hotel with indoor corridors and windows that face into an enclosed atrium. There is a door to a small balcony... More

The motel is on a very busy road, but if you get a room at back, there is no noise (except for the planes flying over - on a flight path to Sydney Airport. The rooms are quite large for a motel and adequately appointed - even if it is the minimum. The room is clean if well worn. We... More

Motel close to airport. Comfortable bed and nice shower room. Kettle, fridge, iron and ironing board. Close to some eateries and petrol stations. Perfect for a one night stopover if flying out of Sydney.
