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

I needed somewhere to stay in the Artarmon/Chatswood area for 1 night. Unfortunately I left it a bit late to book, and no cheaper hotels were available nearby. I therefore booked at The Royal Pacific, spending $260 (about £130) on a double room for a night including breakfast. I would not normally spend so much on a hotel room, but... More

My partner and I stayed at The Royal Pacific Hotel last weekend, while we were in Sydney to celebrate our birthday's and going to Rockpool for dinner. The hotel is conveniently located on the Pacific Highway, and even know it is on the north shore, it is located a short walk to the local train station, which then leads to... More

The CORRECT ADDRESS is : 472 Pacific Highway 
Lane Cove North, NSW 2066 - the heading above is confusing but yes, it is near Artarmon and not that far from Willoughby, etc. Feb 2015. This hotel is convenient if in the north western suburbs of Sydney. The name of the room however, belies its size. Deluxe Queen it was not... More

Looking for a place to stay for a couple of nights in Sydney and unable to get URBAN St Leonards, I settled on this place. I had stayed there before in its previous life as Punt Hill. On arrival, the decor has not changed... Sort of retro 60s. Colourful, interesting. Full payment on demand at registering...that wasn't on the website,... More

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. We needed somewhere to stay not too far from Sydney CBD and not too far from a railway station. We also did not want to pay extra to park our rental car and we wanted a swimming pool on site. This hotel provided us with all of the above. We had... More
