“Quaint, clean and roomy”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We stayed in room 1, just next to the entry, so had no stairs. The window was on the street and looked straight across to the hotel windows opposite, but we had no privacy concerns.
The room was very spacious, with two large lounge chairs, small table and chairs, spacious bed area and very neat, clean and tidy. The bed was great, and bathroom good, with two vanity basins!
They don't take credit cards, so we had to go to the ATM nearby for cash.
We would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs, ask for the front rooms.

We booked a room for 4 (including 2 kids)...when we arrived it had been given away and the only other available room could not fit any extra beds besides the queen it already had. Luckily the reception was able to contact the people they had given our room to and they very kindly agreed to come back to the motel and swap rooms. Our room had a full size fridge which was handy as we had quite a bit of food on us, and everything we needed to make tea and eat our our cereal and even make toast in the morning. The bathroom smelt a bit dank and there was a horrible corner of the shower stall which we all kept stubbing our toe on. The motel is an odd building, with corridors and stairs all this way and that. I bet it could be made into something really quaint but right now it is just ok. The village is very picturesque and there are some nice coffee shops and galleries. Next time we would explore alternatives to dinner in the pub across the road - it was pretty underwhelming. A train runs by the village on a regular basis, so don't expect total quiet.

Room Tip: Make sure your room is not given away!

Brooklyn Motel is convenient to the township and the railway station and ferries to the Hawkesbury islands. We enjoyed dinner at the pub over the road and used the motel as a base to go on the Postman Ferry. The beds were comfy, the shower was fantastic, there was plenty of space to move around in the room and it was very clean. Although there is no onsite parking there is plenty on the street out the front or nearby and it felt safe to leave the car out there. The only negatives were that there were some minor maintenance issues (tap on handbasin loose, door very stiff to open/close) and that there were a lot of stairs to drag bags up to if you are in rooms 3, 4 or 5. I'd be happy to stay at this motel again.

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs ask for rooms one or two - there will still be some stairs to get to th...

Brooklyn Motel is a very nice motel, just one hour from Sydney CBD! It's easy to catch the train to the city! The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Good mattress, nice bathroom. The owners, Bert & Anke are lovely people. Brooklyn is also à quiet small village. I definetly come back when I visit Sydney!

A nice little motel in a nice little part of northern Sydney. Could easily stay here for a few days and commute by train to the center of Sydney with the hourly express service.

Check in easy, friendly people, room nice and clean and well appointed.

My only con; timber floor boards means someone walking around outside the room cause some creaking, but not a reason not to stop here.

Would stay here again.

The motel was ideal for our overnight stay before the RiverBoatPostman cruise, with a large and well-furnished room and bathroom. Brooklyn is small and the motel is handy to everything, with a pub across the road which serves good meals.

Room Tip: We had room 1 which was large and well furnished.

This motel is clean, comfortable and the owners (Bert and Anke) are friendly.
The beds are comfortable and clean. The location is beautiful within walking distance to train, ferry and restaurants. We took a ferry trip to Dangar Island and enjoyed the delightful scenery.
I would recommend this hotel as it is new, tastefully furnished and has a spa bath!.

The locals are friendly and this town has a delightful village atmosphere. You feel walking safe around the streets. There is a quaint little rugby club next door that has an open fire and shows all the rugby matches on the weekends. We enjoyed having a bbq and chatting to the locals. On Thursday we went to a local open mike night at the Anglers Rest Pub it was fun as some of singers were good. The atmosphere was fun and entertaining.

On Friday we took a cruise on the river boat postman run. The food was great and Ben was very informative and friendly. He told lots of tall tales. The food was really delicous!!

The only drawback is there is there is no restaurant located in the hotel but there are good ones located within walking distance especially the pub across the road.
