This hotel is a little dated and shows it with the size of the bathroom amongst other things. The bathroom is so small that the shower door cannot be opened fully. It hits the toilet. The security card for the room had a sticker with room number on it which makes me think that the rooms aren't as secure as... More

I didn't realize until we pulled up that this hotel is on a university campus. It wasn't loud or anything, but the layout was a little confusing. We stayed here two nights while visiting Sydney (it was the closest affordable and decently-rated hotel we could find). When I arrived I walked to the front desk only to find it was... More

I stayed at MGSM for a week in March 2015. The room was modern, clean, and relatively spacious. I wasn't initially a fan of the motel style external corridors but the room still felt safe and secure. The tranquil view of the lake and university grounds were relaxing although the five minute trek to the carpark was somewhat annoying. All... More

With Chinese New Year Sydney was short on accommodation so I stayed out here for a change. The room was really quite good. Very clean and comfortable. It's been a big week so I hoped to sleep til 8, but before 7 the whipper snippet, blower and lawnmowers started outside my room. When I check out the guy on reception... More

I stayed here overnight for a family gathering. The lobby feel like a high school or library but the rooms themselves are quite nicely decorated. The grounds had beautiful views outside the big glass doors. I paid $120 on a Saturday night which I felt was a great price for the location. There is a little gym with some basic... More

We were enroute to Forster and passing through Sydney. It was still Christmas holidays so there were no conferences happening and we had the place to ourselves. The room was on the compact side but it was nicely decorated and comfortable. Bathroom was well lit but small for 2 people; nice shower though. We had a balcony with a lovely... More

We went to Sydney for a medical conference held at the MGSM. We stayed there for 4 nights and had a great stay. We arrived from the Blue Mountains and checked in. The staff were great and very helpful. We dumped our bags in the room which was very nice. Two big beds, tv, table and bathroom. We then headed... More

We stayed here just for night on our way back to Canberra. The reception area was really plain and felt like we were walking into a public library. The door key didn't work (reception didn't code it properly) so it took a while to get into the room. Rooms are small but tastefully furnished. Compare this to the Travelodge only... More

TV remote was partly broken, but everything else was good. One of the cheapest places to stay in the Macquarie Park area. Comfy beds, not too far from the train station and Macquarie Centre, and is practically part of Macquarie University. Thumbs up.

It's a cross between a Y/hostel and a higher end motel. The receptionist is average, it was a bit hard to find and we went through the MGSM building itself. The rooms are your basic 4 star hotel, room bathroom to the right ( small shower and the bathroom is small). There are generic toiletries, basic cable TV, room service... More
