My wife and I had a commitment in this part of Sydney that required accommodation for two nights. Entered our destination on TripAdvisor, and this hotel was top of the list. Our allocated room on the ground floor turned out to be clean and adequate for our needs. The queen size bed was comfortable. However, we normally sleep in a... More

Room quiet and secure (couldn't ask for a more comfortable bed). We stayed for three weeks just recently and will stay again on our return to Sydney. - the staff were very helpful. Bus stop was very convenient at front door and the bus took us to the city or shopping centre with-out any problems.

I regularly stay in Sydney to visit family, but tend to stay at the same place because I'm used to it, but wanting something more centrally located, I took a chance and tried Philip Lodge. I was very satisfied with all aspects of my stay and will definitely be using this motel as my base in future. I travel alone,... More

Stayed overnight as attending conference next day. Pleasantly surprised at how good the accommodation is. Bed was superb and the room had a recent make over as has the motel generally. Had a nice meal at the restaurant. Room was very clean and comfortable and surprisingly quiet. Very friendly and helpful staff. A pleasant stay and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here for a week in March. Suited us perfectly for our stay in Sydney. Good location, close to the city. Bus stop outside the front of the motel. Short walk to the station which was convenient. The price was good value for money. Excellent service, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms a tad dated but comfortable. Sunday night when... More

Jackie and Wayne are the best hosts….they go beyond the call of duty. Lisa the receptionist is dedicated and extremely helpful and informative. Nothing is too much trouble for the whole team. Very helpful on local knowledge, even dropped us off at the local ferry on our way into Sydney CBD. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The public... More

This is a older motel that is very clean and well serviced and well priced. Parking is available on site. Meals are available at reasonable prices. The down side is that often you will have a plane fly low overhead. As its reasonably priced there are a lot of tradesmen staying there and they all leave at 6 am so... More

Stayed here last weekend for the first time, after viewing good reports on tripadvisor. I have to say it was just perfect. Clean and comfortable rooms, quiet with ample parking and free wifi.
