We stayed 4 nights in a 2 bed townhouse with one bed, bathroom, laundry downstairs and 1 bed, bathroom (with bath) and living upstairs. Living is spacious. Bedroom a little tight with luggage rack but has adequate built in robes. Bathrooms spacious. All rooms well appointed and well maintained. Bacony overlooked lovely central courtyard. Lap pool in basement and BBQ area available in courtyard. The info said that servicing is only available with 7 night stays but each day we would return with some tidying having been done. Nice surprise. Secure underground parking $25 per day. Very secure complex. We received exceptional service from Ivan on the front desk. Located next to Rivercat wharf. Great pizza place next door and Port Bar opposite ferry was good for Sunday Brekki. 15-20 min walk to Church street and main restaurant/shopping strip. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will stay again.

Our company usually uses the Parkroyal in Paramatta, but recently we have been staying at the Meriton Serviced Appartments instead. This is a much better option than a hotel, especially if there are several of you staying - for example a company meeting.
We have used a 3-room appartment and a 2-room appartment. The appartments are very modern, luxurious, and have all the mod cons. The space is much larger than a hotel, so you don't get cabin fever. It is also more companionable. There is plenty of space so you don't feel like you are encroaching on each other's space. The cost per person is much cheaper than individual rooms in a hotel.
What we particularly like is that the RiverCat is right on the front doorstep. Getting back to the airport is a breeze using the RiverCat and train from Circular Quay, and much cheaper than a taxi.

Dear RonandSue,

Thank you for your review of our apartments.

As you have kindly noted our serviced apartments are much more spacious than a Hotel. Our rooms are made to feel like a home away from home to cater for short and long term stays.

I am pleased we had met all your expectations. We do maintain and regularly update our facilities to ensure guest’s expectations are met.

Our Apartments are on the doorstep of the Rivercat terminal which run during peak time every hour to get you to and from the city.

RonandSue, thank you once again for taking your time and sharing your review on tripadvisor.com. I hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Kind Regards

Well set out large complex. Security has been well thought out to discourage unwelcome "guests"The staff overall, while obliging did not seem enthusiastic in their work.
The staff servicing our room seemed intent on just making to beds, tidying and replacing shampoo and conditioner without any other cleaning or wiping down. The apartment itself was quite spacious and comfortable. The restaurant on the river side (which also offered room service to the apartments) was really great and offered an excellent menu choice at very reasonable prices.
The ferry to Sydney stops right in front of the apartments and offers a scenic ride to the city but allow 60 to 90 minutes to Circular Quay, Our greatest problem was parking around the apartments as our vehicle was too tall to use the apartment parking (at $25/ Day I might add) and we had to continually feed the parking meters or risk a ticket. There were not alot of shopping opportunities close by with reasonable food shopping a good 15 to 20 minute walk away although there were a number of cafes and restaurants close by.

Room Tip: Rooms facing east offer good views of the river and of Sydney CBD.

Dear joeblow345,

I appreciate you providing candid feedback on the Meriton Parramatta. It is always good to receive reviews from well-travelled customers that benchmark our product against other destinations.

Our team aims for excellence in service and your feedback on the team is disappointing to read. I will be sure to discuss to your feedback at our next team meeting to address the issues you have mentioned.

I would like to mention that as part of our continuous commitment to improving the services we provide we will be staffing our reception desk 24 hours in the very near future to better meet the needs of our guests.

In regards to car parking charges though they are competitively priced for the area, we recognise your feedback as we are always reviewing what we can do to maximise the value for our guests. Unfortunately due to the original design of the building our car park height is restricted to 2.0 meters.

We are only short walk away from Church Street and Westfield Parramatta which offer a wide variety of shopping and restaurant options.

I hope we will give us the opportunity welcome you back on a future stay to Parramatta.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on 7th floor. Apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Huge 2 person bath in main bedroom.Great enclosed balcony with casual dining setting off main living area. Amazing large lap pool in basement with great spa. The Italian restaurant - Port Bar was right in front of the hotel at the Rivercat wharf. Great food and service. We also utilised King George's Pizza bar right next to the apartments. Such an easy meal after a huge day at the Royal Easter Show. The Parramatta free shuttle bus stops across the road from the apartments and took us directly to Parramatta railway station for a quick trip to the showground. We walked back from the station after the return trip. Parking was a little pricey at $25 a night. We feel this should have been included in price of apartment. Be wary of waiting for Rivercat at weekends as it is a bus service to Rydalmere then rivercat to city. Check the signs on the wharf.

Dear wombie,

Thank you for choosing the Meriton Serviced Apartments - Parramatta for your “Easter getaway”, we are very pleased to read that you found our spacious apartments and onsite facilities well suited to your needs.

We are well situated in Parramatta to provide easy access to shopping, restaurants and public transport. The River cat service is scheduled to operate on weekends however due to weather conditions the service may be cancelled, I would also recommend utilising the train service when the ferry is not operating to get to the city. The train service as you have mentioned is an easy stroll or you can take free Parramatta shuttle bus.

We also provide room service from the best local restaurants in Parramatta for the convenience of all our guests.

In regards to car parking charge though we are competitively priced for the area, we recognise your feedback. We are always reviewing what we can do for our guests to make their stay more valuable.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future

I stayed one night at the Meriton in Parramatta. For those who don't know, I believe the Meriton has a special of $91 for a STUDIO the first week of every month.

Although we had to wait past the 2pm check-in time in order to check-in, the staff (more specifically, Ivan) was very helpful and considerate. He took his time to provide us with as much information about the area as we needed and even compensated us with an extra hour for check-out - and we didn't even request it!

The place is amazing! It has a very gated community vibe and structure to it which makes you feel special and safe. The STUDIO was excellent! Very spacious and had all the things you could want and need!

There are only a few trivial things I could critique about it:

* The television was not placed in front of the bed which was annoying. We had to manually move it to face the bed.
* Because the pillows are fairly new, they were still pretty plump and hard. I had a better sleeping without them.
* The gym facilities are nothing to be envied. Quite simple and lacking actually. But i guess that's the same with all the Meritons.

Other than that, this place is superb! Definitely will be back!

This was a great place to stay, with the Ferry right out the front we were able to travel into Circular Qyay without any of the traffic worries. As we had to travel out to Penrith Regatta Centre on several occasions, we found this an excellent half way option.
Also the restaurants in the local area were great.
Accomodation very comfortable and affordable.

Stayed on 13th floor. Superb views over Sydney inthe distance. Apartment w as s really comfortable. Great facilities, proper kitchen allows you to keep costs down. 1hour trip on ferry to Central Sydney, past Olympic stadium, under harbour bridge and great views of opera house. Much cheaper than a paid for tour. Thoroughly recommend if happy to stay a bit further out.
