2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2006

We stayed one night at this motel. From our travel guide book we expected a motel but this place rather is a budget hotel for backpackers. On the first and second floor are dorms. Only the third floor has doubles with in suite showers and toilets.
The place was rather noisy. At 7.50am the workers started on the rooftop, but stopped after 15 min. We heard from other guests that the rooms located near the stairs are particularly noisy due to all the poeple that walk up onto the rooftop.
The staff was very friendly but the price (A$ 99,-) seems expensive for what you get.
It was nice that we could park our car without extra costs.
We had a PC with internet access in our room without any extra costs but it was extremely slow in the morning.
We will not stay at this place again.

For a budget hotel this is a wonderful find. The room was spacious, with a microwave and fridge and a computer in the room for surfing the web. The bathroom was shower only but still great. The staff were wonderful and very helpful and the area is perfect for those touring Sydney.

The MAJOR drawback is that the check in is one floor up and the rooms above that... and no elevator! Can be a real chore if you have heavy bags.

The rooftop was being renovated, but the view from up there is still spectacular.

Looking forward to staying again... with less luggage.
