The well set out room had two comfortable beds - one queen and one single with the kitchenette including both a table as well as bench space for eating. My room had a nice outlook from the windows into green shrubbery. For a well priced (if you are a "Golden Chain member you receive an extra 10% discount) quiet, relaxing... More

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
