We booked a "standard room" here for 1 night to stay after a car event we had gone to as it was cheap and close by. Upon arrival I was totally gobsmacked, the exterior of the place looked like it hadnt been touched since the early 1800's and it was filthy, rubbish everywhere.. Lady that checked us in was nice...

-Executive Style room- Stayed two nights - The room decor was basic, quality and new. The room was a decent size and typical for this design of early motor inn. Externally the hotel needs some major TLC but don't let that fool you, the staff, refurbished rooms and surrounding amenities were good. For the price you get a hotel room,... More

Well a trip to Sydney and a "want to be close to the action" was the decision to stay here at the El Toro Liverpool. Our room was neat and tidy and was a decent size. The bathroom was newly renovated but flooded every time we had showers. The bed was comfortable and the room ammenities were pretty good. There... More

We had a daughter playing state titles for softball and stayed with the team and their families in various rooms. The rooms were paid for by us but booked by the team so when I read the reviews I very apprehensive, but the rooms were small but neat, clean and seemed to have been newish. The pub attached looks rougher... More

I stayed for 4 nights because I had to be local and I as on a very low budget. Having read reviews here and elsewhere I almost didn't stay. That would have been a mistake. Yes, the motel should have been renovated 10 years ago. The rooms and furnishing are tired and shabby (and the carpet could do with a... More

Terrible for even 1 second. I am even ashamed to say I stayed there a night. It is filthy, smelly and awful. The whole place should be pulled down. All websites should let there customers know the places we book b'cos we trust them to service our requests. This is australia and we need honest info. One thing positive was... More

We stayed here due to an 11 hour flight delay as we needed somewhere cheap, but still in Sydney, for a 3am check-in. Never again. The room, from the second I walked in, made me skin itch. It looked ( and felt) terribly dirty. Outside our window there were people drag racing all night long. My children went to swim... More

We stayed here the end of June 2013 and were really disappointed in the Condition of the rooms, not to mention the dodgy area being attached to a pub and factory industrial area . Smelly smoke filled rooms, stained carpets, dirty bathrooms, stained bed linen, Electrical Switches that are damaged, the council should be doing more to inspect this place,... More

We stay here frequently when we travel to Sydney. I am amazed at the reviews I have read. Sure it is old with old furnishings but my room was clean. The location is great to walking distance to Liverpool shops.
