Hotel presents well with good 24 hour reception, there were no items in the mini bar, however you can order drinks etc. from Reception. I find this to be short of top class, also there is no pay tv so tv viewing is limited to free to air stations. Overall though the hotel is in a great location with plenty... More

Stayed in a twin share room just as the renovations were completing. The rooms are modern and clean with air-conditioning and a big screen TV. Front desk staff were also friendly and helpful. On the downside, I thought the rooms were a little on the small side, the bathroom was very compact - one needed to manoeuvre on to the... More

There is absolutely no evidence to indicate that the building at 196 Glebe Point Road is a Best Western motel. When I mentioned this to receptionist he said there was a problem because of all the heritage buildings in the area yet across the street all commercial premises had signs! I didn't sleep a wink due to the uncomfortable ridge... More

Hi Mary, Thank you for your review. We are very sorry for all the inconvenience occurred during your stay with us. Due to our location in the heritage area, our signage has to be considered with the city plan. Therefore, we have been processing the signage application for several months and is currently still awaiting the Council's approval. We will... More

Very conveniently located on Glebe Point Road with access to bus and light rail. Restaurants and cafes abound as soon as you step outside your door.

We had a twin room on first floor. Decor is modern, wifi is included and runs well, bathroom accs are good, in-room coffee facilities appreciated (only instant - pod would have been much better considering the room price!), very little street noise (our room faced the side road).

It is a new hotel - everything is bright, clean and fresh. It is located on Glebe Point Rd - an absolute haven for shopping and dining. There were so many classy dining establishments within a short walk, we were truly spoilt for choice. Will definitely stay again - Winnie on the front desk was lovely!

Staying in Glebe

Neighborhood Profile
Glebe
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
