I have stayed here a few times for business. On the whole, it is a good place to stay if you have business immediately nearby - otherwise, I think for the price, you can do better elsewhere in Sydney (e.g. my recent stay at the Meriton Apartments on Pitt St right in the middle of Sydney was cheaper, while still being a very good property, and I regularly stay in North Sydney for much less as well). However, if you do need to stay in this area or on the Macquarie campus, I recommend this property over the Travelodge Macquarie as the rooms here are more luxurious and the staff are far better trained. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are very comfortable and clean with very modern decor and updated bathrooms, and the 'lake' view is pleasant (lots of birds, sometimes kangaroos). On this stay, my mattress was saggy and I found it uncomfortable, perhaps it is time it was replaced. The airconditioner was a bit too noisy, but as it was a warm night, it was a bit too warm in the room with it turned off. Breakfast is good with cereal, toast, fruit, pastries, juices, yogurt, as well as a hot buffet, although on this stay, there weren't enough people to offer the hot buffet and although you could order the same food separately, I hadn't planned around waiting for food to be cooked (and the gentleman in the restaurant was a bit slow at bringing out the menu and letting us know the situation regarding the lack of buffet - I had already started eating something else). Although I don't like their coffee machine, they can sometimes be convinced to make you a proper coffee out the back. I think the restaurant is pretty good for a restaurant in a hotel on a university campus (some grumbles from vegetarian colleagues about the limited veg options). If you are without a car, the campus is a bit dark and isolated at night, although it is not a long walk from the train station and the Macquarie shopping centre is also within walking distance.
