3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I stayed in the Drummoyne Serviced Apartments at 165 Lyons Rd, Drummoyne for 12 days in September 2012. These are the studio apartments. I chose these apartments as I was in the area for a course for 2 weeks, and wanted affordable accommodation in a nearby location. Friends of mine had gone to the same course and stayed here. The apartment was clean and neat, with a kitchen and cooking supplies, fridge, washer and drier and a bathroom. The bed was comfortable enough, and the room was spacious. The room itself looks quite dated but I expected this given that the rate I paid for the accommodation was very reasonable.

I noticed that this building is directly under the flight path of the airport, and often in the day/afternoon planes can be heard quite loudly overhead. They did not continue throughout the night and therefore I did not have problems sleeping. It is also important to note that Lyons road can get quite busy with lots of traffic/emergency vehicles so if you plan to be in the room lots then you may have trouble. There is no lift in the building so be aware you will need to climb the stairs and carry your luggage up.

Nearby there is a bakery, fish and chip shop, small deli and restaurants in walking distance. I found the location very good. There are buses which go up/down Lyons road regularly and therefore it is easy to get around.

The main complaint I have with this place is that it was advertised to be a "serviced" apartment, with the room serviced once a week. During my 12 day stay, my room was not serviced at all. Given that you are paying the rate for a serviced apartment I would expect to receive this service. Also, when I arrived there, I did not get appropriate instructions about where to pick up my Key. Being a sunday, the reception was closed, and I had to make phone contact with the caretaker to be advised the key would need to be picked up from their other building. This would not have been too much of a problem except I had a fair bit of luggage which I then needed to carry across the road, so it would have been better if I was informed about this prior to going there.

Overall, I had a decent stay in this apartment. It would be reasonable for a short term stay if you are need to be in the Drummoyne area.

Room Tip: As far from the road as possible is the best option.

We stayed here for 5 nights at end of August.The 2 bedroom apartment we booked had 1 queen size bed, 2 single bed and 1 sofa bed (large enough for 2 person), it accommodated all 6 of us(3 adults & 3 kids). The kitchen was spacious with gas stove/oven and basic utensils provided including Microwave/TV/Fridge. There is a shared laundry room complete with cloth dryer next door. The TV channel and heater are working fine. There are fish & chips shop and Bakery just 30 meter away (about 1 minute walk), same goes to its Bus stand. It took us just less than 25 minutes to arrive to Sydney CBD by bus no 504 and it stop right in front of QVB. Town hall light rail station is just a few step away. Actually the bus pass by Birkenhead shopping mall and Darling Harbour. We will recommend this place to our friends and family.

Room Tip: Our room was apartment no 5 on the ground floor and very near to Bus stand and Food outlet. No probl...

We stayed in Deummoyne apartments in Sydney for 5 nights this year.This was the second time we staued in this complex.There was a significant inprovement as the apartment has been fully renovated with new furniture and a good wifi service has been installed. The 2 bedroom apartment we had was very spacious with kitchen and laundry. The 2 bedroom accommodated all 5 of us ( 2 adults +3 kids) and there were a nice large dinning area for all of us to have meals together. There are few very good coffee shops & reastuarnt within the close area.We will highly recomended the fish & chips shop ( 200 m away) and the Bakery ( aslo 200 n away). To sum up we have a good stay at a very reasonable rate for a family of 5 in a nice,clean & secured furnished apartments complex. We will recommend this venue to our friends and family
