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.

I recently stayed at the Royal Pacific hotel for a weekend in Sydney. I booked this hotel for its location, price and convenience - I wanted two rooms for two adults in each, close to each other. Our rooms were adjacent, with a private hallway. The rooms were clean and comfortable and despite being located on a very busy road,... More

I stayed at the Pacific Royal for 7 nights in April and found the hotel to be acceptable for the price. The room was clean and relatively modern. The building itself is a bit old and pokey and the air conditioning in my room was dreadful but that aside the hotel does the job for the price.

Ok, so I admit that it's mostly my fault for returning to this place despite my previous disappointments, but location trumps most things, most of the time, including: 'A', the mediocre meals at the establishment's restaurant; 'B', the hidden cost of WiFi (be certain to ask at check-in if the WiFi is free!!!); and 'C', the street noise that goes...

I found the bed terribly uncomfortable, so that was a big disappointment for me. Having to pay for wifi also is a it disappointing. Free parking was good. Loved the blackout blind to keep the room dark. The aesthetic of the hotel was quite nice. Being on the highway meant there was traffic noise. The noise from the traffic woke... More
