A great place to stay. Very helpful, pleasant staff, clean, quiet rooms, and very importantly, comfortable beds and pillows. The restaurant meals are excellent, showcasing Australia's fresh meat and produce, and the self service breakfast very good. The couple who manage this hotel are extremely helpful in regard to the surrounding sights, transport, eateries and shopping, with a vast local... More

We were in 201. The rooms are a good size and we liked that we could open the window and get fresh air. The staff were attentive and even shuttle bussed us to Artarmon station at an off peak hour. And suggested a place to eat which was great [Burger joint on the other side of Artmaron station through the... More

Firstly this is not a mid-city hotel, but rather a suburban hotel but much less expensive than a CBD hotel. We had a first floor room overlooking the outdoor unheated pool at the back of the hotel. Despite the hotel being on a very busy road, there was very little road noise in our room. We enjoyed being able to... More

Good basic hotel in the burbs. I was disappointed that the buffet breaky didn't come with bacon and eggs - toast and spreads only. Clean and tidy rooms with a nice view out west if you get a room on the higher floors. Has a bar for quiet after drink before bed. The pool and gym are adequate for a... More

Stayed here for a business trip. Rooms were clean and comfortable. No views to speak of however I would imagine the majorty of customers would be for business. Staff were pleasant and overall my stay was good.

Stayed 2 nights due to work being done on my home nearby and needed a place to crash. Clean and comfortable. Decent size tv. Microwave, tea and coffee facilities. They run a shuttle bus service to local train stations in the morning only. You need to book the day before at reception. Staff pleasant and will smile and pass the... More

Good clean rooms, staff were helpful, was a little way out from Sydney centre but only took 30 mins on the train which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Breakfast was quite nice, pretty much self service. And the pool look nice although didn't get to try it. Would recommend everything you would expect from a hotel!

I spent a working week here and was pleasantly surprised that - despite the moderate room rates - I had a fairly pain-free experience staying. The hotel is right at the Pacific Highway but all rooms are facing out the back, so there is no issue with noise. I stayed on the 5th floor, thinking it's a problem because they... More
