“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I would recommend Abcot Inn if you want to stay in Sydney South - even thought it was on highway I could not hear traffic as rooms are not close to road. I had an Executive room and price was reasonable, room was clean and had everything I needed. Staff were excellent - from check-in, breakfast and check-out. Lucas was very friendly and helpful at check-in, as was the Polish girl with long dark hair who served me breakfast and also was on Reception at check-out. I will stay there again.

There is no unnecessary luxury in this place. My room was from the cheaper ones, but it was quite clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable, even the couch was good enough for me to sleep like a log. The personnel is polite and helpful. The continental breakfast in the restaurant is like at most of the places. If you want something more special, I do recommend the English breakfast. I've tried the swimming pool as well. I had some problems with opening the child security fence, but after I managed to do that I had a great time.

Room Tip: If you need a good internet connection, you should take a room close to the reception desk.

Its a bit hard to find reasonably priced good accomodation in this part of Sydney, this place fits that bill quite well though. Nothing particularly flash but clean and comfortable at a reasonable price.

I was impressed with the room which was an excutive, very clean, nice comfortable chair and bed. Staff very helpful was late arriving on the first night, manager was very cheerful when i arrri9ved and booked. The blond girl (know this is not a nice way to discribe her but i didnt get her name) who worked in the afternoon was very helpful about finding a place to eat, (even though the golf course changed to you had to make bookings and not advised them). Will stay again if ever back in sydney. ps Book for a meal at the golf club.

Room Tip: stayed in room 15

Do not choose Room #39. Carpet torn. TV older than 2000. Not 1 hook or rail in bathroom apart from 1 rail over bath and over 2 metres up for the bath towel. Toiet seat was pitted and old. How much is a new plastic toilet seat? Bathroom door warped and paint peeling. Bathroom air vent vibrated so loud had to turn off. Needed face washer to turn taps off. Given last available room, which was a family room and took it as desperate. Big mistake. Give this hotel a big miss. Big time.

Dear Carol, it's disappointing to see that you were so dissatisfied with the room you stayed in. I admit there were some maintenence issues in that room and it would not have normally been rented out on the night, but as you mentioned yourself we were full and we still had many customers desperately looking for a room. In hindsight the decision to rent the room out was probably wrong and I regret it, but there is little I can do about it now. We value our customer and strive to keep them happy. Had you told us straight after check in that you were unhappy with the room we would have gladly refunded you in full.

We stayed here overnight on our way to the south coast and found it to be a nice place. Even though it is situated on the Princess Hwy, the traffic noise was not at all loud or annoying, and we had no problems sleeping here. Our arrival was after 10pm but this was no problem, a night manager is always available. The rooms are not elaborate but are clean and tidy, although a little dated and probably in need of a make over. The complimentary continental breakfast was a good start to the day with cereal, toast, juice, tea and coffee available. This is probably not a place I would spend many nights at but was good for our overnight stay.

Renovation of the room we had was badly overdue - so was a good clean! Stale broken biscuits and torn papers in bedside cupboard, cobwebs (eye level) in bathroom, stained bedspreads and a wet towel on the floor when we arrived. Felt dirty staying here. No excuse for this type of careless cleaning. Positives: no highway noise and pleasant receptionist.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated one!

Dear Julia, thank you for letting us know about the issues you experienced. I completely agree with you that there is no excuse for that and would like to sincerely apologise on behalf of myself and the rest of the team. I have passed your comments to the housekeeper who cleaned your room and feel confident that they have been taken on board.
