This Hotel is a little tired. The chairs in the seating area of the room were very uncomfortable and too high for the coffee table, especially if you are eating a room service meal. The Restaurant has a very limited menu and the standard of the meal I had was not much more than three star. Maybe I was over... More

We stayed here on a Friday night and was pleasantly surprised at how 'cute' this hotel was. The room was clean and quite spacious and since we were on the 4th floor, we had a good and refreshing view of the bushland in the North of Sydney. It's too bad that their restaurant is closed on a Friday night and... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks on a business visit. Ideal for business purposes only as the hotel provides complimentary shuttle to the train stations (Artarmon, Chatswood and St. Leonards) on weekdays. Room was decent and staff was receptive to my requirements. Overall a pleasant experience.

This is a much better hotel than we thought it would be. The in-house restaurant has great food (though it's only open Mon-Thurs). There's plenty of free parking for guests, a pool, and free internet on the computers in the business center. You have to buy internet for your room, but the prices are reasonable if you get it for... More

It's a nice ~4 Star hotel that's well looked after. Easy to get a good price. Downside is that it's adjacent to any restaurants/bars. It's only 1km walk through Artarmon's leafy streets to the local shops and Artarmon station (15 minutes train to Central) or a 1.5km to Chatswood which is full of shops, food and more. If you have...

I recently had a one night stay here on a business trip and it ticked all the boxes. A lot better value than some other hotels in Central Chatswood this was clean and comfortable and had everything i needed for my trip. Room was well equipped and I had a good nights sleep at the rear of the building. A... More

Very unwelcoming staff when we arrived, uncomfortable atmosphere to the place..cold, dark corridors and room not much better. The staff continued to be unhelpful throughout our stay. The big TV was their only redeeming feature but we weren't on holidays to watch TV. Nicer hotels in same vicinity.

The staff a courteous and friendly. The same staff have been operating the property for a while now, and they know what... More

I was travelling on business and this was a great location, but very, very noisy from highway and seems to be under a flight path. It was quite winy when I stayed and the noise from the wind also seemed to be accentuated, not sure why. Otherwise very comfortable and clean.

Nice and comfortable room. Decent bathroom. Bed was great. Plenty of free parking. Hotel is located right on the Pacific Highway so can be a bit noisy at times from traffic. Only one elevator for all guests. Breakfast is decent and plentiful. Happy to stay again.
