4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

Good location, very close to train station and bus stop. The room is quite spacious and clean. All the guests share one washing machine and two dryers. Although it's a little bit noisy at night, cause it's close to a busy road, this is not a bad choice if you have a tight budget in Sydney.

Stayed just one night between business meetings in the Sydney area. The hotel was basically as described except for the bathroom. "Designer toiletries" consisted of a generic brand 'conditioning shampoo' and shower gel. If you're female and know what "designer" really means, take your own shower products. Towels that were provided for a 2 person room consisted of 2 older... More

Booked for a 4 night stay. Check in no problems, free car parking. Pleasantly surprised with the size of the room - certainly bigger than some of the 5-star hotels we've stayed in!! Very efficient, professional, helpful staff. Lovely, peaceful atrium which houses breakfast tables as well as comfortable sofas & reading material (even a free massage chair for guests... More

This hotel rates itself as 3 but should be closer to 4. The rooms clean, modern and bright and of a good size. The reception staff were excellent. The breakfast was self serve light (toast, cereal, etc) although I had to go back to the room for a sachet of coffee. Their public areas/lounge were clean and I liked the... More

Stayed for two nights. Tidy, close to where I needed to be, free wifi and a good sized room. Perfect for the work trip to Sydney. No noisy neighbors, good sized shower and I liked that I could open the door to the small balcony for some fresh air.

For an aging motel, the room was large, bright, airy and clean, ours had a small balcony. The central atrium was very welcoming with a lounge area & dining tables & chairs. We used it for relaxing. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Security is good with code access gates protecting vehicles & access to the motel. Free Wifi... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Choose it for the vehicle parking & access to the Blue mountains. Handy to both light rail & suburb trains. Rooms are a decent size, very basic but for the price it's what I expected. Good location if you want to park your car & use public transport. I would consider using this Motel again.... More
