“Cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2011

Stayed for the CHS Swimming state championships. Beds comfy and room tiny but comfortable. Only issue I would raise is the parking which is difficult as there are only limited car parks on site so costs $20 for a car park about 700m away. The night I went the football was on meaning the parking had to be pre booked. This should be mentioned on the website or you need to be able to book the car spaces at the hotel so you know if you can get a spot or not.

Hotel in excellent location for sporting events at homebush. We visited for Schools swimming competition. Has breakfast facilities, a microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. Has vending frozen meals that can use the microwave, but no sink/water have to get staff to fill kettle etc.
Rooms are very compact, but fine for a short stay. TV in room, but all viewing had to be paid for which was a bit of a shame. Sadly the beds were very uncomfortable, very hard mattresses so neither my son or myself had a great night sleep. would recommend only if money is tight!

Clean, tidy and well priced. Self serve continental breakfast for $7.00 was value for money. Definately stay again. Location of the hotel is good. One critisism... needs a bar fridge for extended stays.

This hotel is perfect for those using the Athletics Stadium across the road. If you want simple, clean, quiet accommodation, then this is the place for you. The self-service area on the ground floor, with a fridge, microwave and tea/coffee making facilities is also very convenient. The rooms are quiet and can be made very dark for a great night (or day) sleep. Only downfall is the waiting time required for lift use at peak times (can take a good 10 minutes). Otherwise, we have never been disappointed with our stays. Keep up the great work!
