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. Jackie and Wayne run a tight ship with all amenities catered for. Jackie is so friendly and helpful, always smiling. Breakfast delivered to our room was lovely... More

By far the best Best Western we've stayed at thus far, I found the lady at reception to be very welcoming and helpful, with maps of local shops already printed out to help customers around the area. The rooms where equipped with all our needs and had possibly the best soap dispensing unit (had shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, hand soap,... More

Took me back 30 years but this is a friendly old school Motel. Very clean and beats many City Hotels by having great TV's with foxtel and free WIFI. No extra charges for parking either. Will be back soon. Is under the flight path if taking off over the city, but this did not worry me.
