This is a very good hotel to stay in Sydney without spending big bucks but getting a very good service! Staff is very friendly and will try to help you if needed . We will stay here again next time. There is free parking too!!!

Although name had changed between booking and staying, the Punthill leaf logo was still there so it was easy to find.
Booked 2 rooms for 5 days and these were comfortable and well appointed. Lots of uncovered parking and very friendly staff.
Close to train and bus services and shopping centre.
Fantastic Great Northern Pub just a short walk up the road, reasonably priced with cook your own meat or meal provided options.
Highly recommended place to stay.

Room Tip: We overlooked the carpark on first floor but had no issues with noise.

We stayed for ten days and each day service was top notch, with a staff that is very accommodating and friendly. Originally we were booked for only five days since we had arrangements to fly to New Zealand. When are plans fell through, they were able to book us for the rest of the stay with no worries. This was our first stay in Australia coming from the US and the manager and his wife helped with everything from transportation, (excellent public transportation system Sydney has) places to see and things to do(maps/suggestions), and just providing us an excellent experience. The room was very modern and had everything we needed for the longer stay with a small kitchenware set and fridge to fit our items we bought from Chatswood Shopping Center. Every night getting back from our day trip we would come back to freshly made bed and new towels and everything was just as when we checked in the first day. We didn't get to eat at Fat Arnie's the restaurant in the hotel. But from what we could tell everything looked and smelled delicious. Also there is a tiny bar that you can get a nice cool beverage. Price wise with the location close (5 min walk) to the Artarmon station and the multi trip pass that can be purchased at the train station to ride bus, ferry, train, tram was very affordable and allowed us to spend more money on day trips and other tourist attractions. I think the best thing about this place is the personal feeling you have at this hotel and that your not just another guest, but a welcomed friend. Thank you so much Steven, Rachel, Michael, and William. If we have the opportunity to stay in Sydney again we know where we will be booking.

As a continual weekly stayer at the Royal Pacific Hotel, I always look forward to "coming home" to the hotel, where you can relax , sit by the pool with a cooling ale , enjoy the ambiance and friendly staff, who remember your name ! The rooms are clean, comfortable and roomy ! The restaurant has a good selection of meals. Being so near to Chatswood ( nearest railway station) and Lane Cove, which has a great selection of shops !
I have no trouble in recommending this hotel or the business person or holiday person !

Room Tip: Any rooms have a great view from any rooms

Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Lots of free car parking and handy to train and bus services. Downtown Sydney only 20 minutes away by train.

Very close to Chatswood Mall and shopping village and a short walk to the Great Northern Pub.

I chose this hotel after reading a number of good reviews. We were welcomed efficiently by the front counter staff. The room I was allocated was all that I required. Nice and tidy, if not slightly showing some signs of wear. The bed was comfortable and they had everything that I'd expect. The shower door didn't open without me having to physically lift it, so I was glad that I was given this room as my older travelling companion wouldn't have been able to access the shower if it had been their room. Also, the chairs in the room were a little uncomfortable to sit in. But overall the room was great. The location is so handy to everything. Twenty minutes from the airport, a few minutes from Chatswood Westfields. We felt like everything was so close by. If they fix the shower door and get some comfy chairs in the room, I'll be back!

We needed a reasonably priced hotel in this area as I had medical appointments nearby. The room had been recently renovated - crisp white sheets, freshly painted, a large coffee table with 2 chairs etc. The room was decorated tastefully - very clean & comfortable. Usual coffee/tea making but having a microwave, bowls & basic cutlery made it possible to have a simple DIU breakfast. It was a bit of a walk to the main shopping strip & restaurants were very low key but we found a byo pizza place that was ok. Free hotel parking also helped to keep our costs down and while we felt the area lacked the vibrancy of our other trips to Sydney, this hotel did meet our needs very well on this occasion.
