Most deals offer a nice breakfast in the restaurant. This motel is also close to Sydney road shopping with quite a few different options for dinner along with... More

As an essential stay close to the Royal Woman's Hospital, this older style motel met all our needs. A spotless room, quiet location, free wifi, free parking and free buffet breakfast offered weekdays. This was just what our family required to be close to a loved one during their hospital stay. From the initial phone call for the booking we... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful, room was neat and clean and we had a kitchenette which we didn't realise so a good plus. Complimentary continental breakfast... More

We stayed for three nights. Friendly staff and easy check-in. Bed was way small for a queen and consisted of blanket and sheet, luckily there was electric blanket and heaters. Room was clean, but outdated throughout all the areas, needs a substantial upgrade. There were some odd and obtrusive bedside lamps that were mounted on the headboard. Wifi was virtually... More
