The Garden Lodge is a dated hodge podge of crazy. Greeting us near the FRONT ENTERANCE in the parking lot were was a set of discarded, filthy mattresses. We were... More

We've been here a few times now. Very quiet motel close to rail, bus and the new tram stop that provides convenient access to Sydney. Rooms are a good size and open on to an internal garden court. Lots of opportunity for meals elsewhere, helpful staff and competitive rates. On site car parking.

This is a very tidy motel which is totally soundproofed from any traffic noise on Parramatta Road. Room was quite large, clean and comfortable with a small smokers balcony. Staff are cheerful and quickly able to sort out my channel selection problems on the TV. Not much dining within walking distance but a myriad of Asian cuisine to choose from... More
