We have been staying here for over eight years and I thought it was time to write a review.
We go up to Sydney to go to the footy and go out at night, as well as the occasional performance and a bit of walking (working our way round the harbour). The motel is perfectly located, on the edge of Darlinghurst and Surry Hills, so you can walk to the SCG and SFS, Kings Cross, the bars of Oxford Street, Paddington and the CBD. Central Station is close but it's a fairly steep walk back up. this does make it noisy in the neighbourhood until quite late.
Car parking is limited but secure under the motel; you need to book in advance for a car space.
The owners and their staff are great. It's a hectic family-run business, so the owners are occasionally a little stressed/frazzled.
Ensuite shower, toilet and vanity, with soap and shampoo supplied.
Rooms are serviced daily except Sundays (the busiest turnover day) but if you want fresh towels or more toilet roll you only need to ask.
Aircons and TVs have all recently been changed, as far as we can tell; we haven't stayed in *every* room yet.
Staff on site 24 hours, so you can always check in.
The rooms are definitely on the basic side and storage space is limited, but we've always found the beds comfortable, the facilities serviceable and the room clean.
The only time the room wasn't spotless was when I found myself unexpectedly stuck in Sydney one evening. I called to check and the last room had gone, but was called back to be told that some members of a larger group had gone and the rest had asked to downsize. The duty manager tidied the room and changed the bed. I was so grateful!
No stairs, three floors plus car park basement, stairs up to reception/ground floor.
Great cafe attached.
