The Hornsby Inn was great. It is basic pub accommodation. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had all the amenities I needed for a one night stay. The Thai restaurant on site was great.

When reading reviews on this hotel they were mixed but on their website it stated free breakfast, wifi and parking all in a "deluxe" double room. First of all, the "breakfast" was bread in the fridge with packets of condiments plus tea bags and small cereal boxes. Would not like to see the standard room, we had to sit on... More

The room was clean and had everything we needed. The hotel was located near the train station which suited us. There was a continental breakfast provided which also was great. Our only complaint was that the first night we stayed there was a Saturday and the rooms are above the entertainment and we had a loud band till midnight -... More

The Hornsby Inn is in an excellent location with the Westfield Shopping Centre right next door. The room was basic but very clean. A continental breakfast was supplied which was also basic but adequate if you wanted a quick breakfast.

very close to railway station and westfield. the thai restaurant looked good, and the food smelled amazing. Unfortunately we only were here 1 night and didn't get a chance to eat. I had a couple of cocktails in the old fashioned style railway bar, very nice! Only issue is the door was quite thin, and sound in the corridor travels,... More

I may be old fashioned but at 65 being greeted as "doll" by the young receptionist was a bit off-putting. The room was old and tired with no proper window. There was no desk so working at the computer was a challenge. The bed was comfortable enough and the bathroom was clean, serviceable and with plenty of hot water. The... More

Handy to railway station and shopping centre. The room was clean although a little bit small. It offers the opportunity to stay in a good location away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD. Trains readily available to travel anywhere else in the City.

Me and my friend stayed here after cycling around the 3 Gorges. Check-in was smooth, staff were very friendly and the room was clean and had the amenities you would expect.

Decided to spend the night in Hornsby, rather than drive down with all the rush hour traffic, to pick up friends from the International airport. Found the hotel to be comfortable and convenient to drive to. If I needed travel by train, the Hornsby station is about 10 minutes away. The room was comfortable. The only annoying thing was that...
