This motel is clean and comfortable with very helpful and friendly staff. Close to public transport for easy access to the city and the airport. Great family stay, plenty of choices for meals close by as well as restaurant in motel. Would highly recommend. Vicky, Adelaide.

We were welcomed by a very pleasant and friendly gentleman. When we arrived we found that it is an old-style 2 storey motel with external access to all rooms and we were booked into an upper floor with steps. My sister has issues with stairs so we agreed to pay extra for an upgrade in a non-smoking room on ground level. This room was large and comfortable. On going to bed we realised that the room smelt of smoke which hadn't been obvious on first entry. When we mentioned this on checkout the owner was very upset and immediately waived the additional fee.
Breakfast was served in our room. The room has a desk but with no table to sit at so we sat on the couch and used the dining chairs as tables. Breakfast was plentiful, beautifully cooked, hot and served by a very friendly waitress.
Overall our stay was good, the room clean (except for the residual smoke in a designated non-smoking room) and the bed comfortable. Good value for money.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify a ground floor room if you have mobility issues.

On my first business trip to Sydney the company booked me into the Gardenia. Close to work, close to Sydney, close to shops. The food is exceptional and the servings are huge. The two owners and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The regular guests who stay are very friendly and there is no need to eat by yourself as someone will always ask if you would like to join them at the table. Would highly recommend the Gardenia and I will return to stay again for business or pleasure with the family.

Very friendly welcoming staff. Lots of parking and a great on site restaurant, the meals are huge.

Room is comfortable but very basic, I stayed in winter and it was very cold all night, Air conditioning was restricted on the controls.

Overall great little place, convenient and well priced.

We had booked 4 nights at a nearby hotel but found ourselves spending the first night here as our booked hotel put us in a room here due to a water leak on the floor our room there was supposed to be on. At first I was worried but found the room to be updated and clean. And it ended up being better than the room we were in, in the other hotel. Service was good. We rang up after checking out to let them know our little girl left her favorite teddy in the fold out sofa bed, and that we would return for it in the afternoon, it was at the front desk waiting for us! I would definitely try to stay here again by choice this time!
