“Small room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

This motel is hidden from view of the highway. The room is small, even for a room with a queen bed and a single bed all squeezed in. The reception staff seems friendly enough. The Lane Cove bus interchange is within walking distance, so is the Lane Cove shopping where there are number of restaurants. Hence I did not eat at the motel's own restaurant.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

If you have stayed at many of the other comfort inns, you will be thoroughly disappointed by this one. Very small rooms with cramped space for desk, small bathrooms, and parking space that is so difficult to maneuver are some of the characteristics of this hotel. On the plus side, it is close to a highway and also close to a number of restaurants and shopping. Housekeeping did their job everyday and there was also an expensive restaurant on site. The city center is few miles away and you will get stuck in traffic during peak hours. Front desk is staffed only during specific working hours and hence it is important to know if you are missing something like soap or towels and replenish them during this time. There is no appearance or decor to speak of. It looks like this is overpriced for what it provides and doesn't seem to be in the same league as other Choice branded hotels.

Stayed three nights, good 3.5 star standard, thiss was our second visit.Used the restaurant for the first time, reasonable choice of food and cost, breakfast buffet was good value. Traffic noise not a problem even though it is close to the Pacific Hwy.

Booked through agoda - was supposed to be a STANDARD room they have two levels of standard rooms this was the bottom. TV no FOXTEL lighting poor, fan in bathroom noisy, little to no table top space. They debited my account with the security deposit and still not returned it.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else

Great location! Stayed in ground floor refurbished rooms for 4 nights which are spacious and well equipped! If you expect to stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel this is not your place, but is definitely a 3.5 star! The room service menu is limited but variety available would suit most! I had entree size chicken/mushroom crepe and it was enough as a main! The lovely man who served me was friendly and very helpful! My only complaint was a constant humming noise similar to a generator that kept me awake for two nights even after the staff happily moved me to another room! Apparently it was a one off problem and no one else complained! Hopefully that is the case because overall this is a reasonable establishment especially given the rate!

I stayed for three nights with my sister and mother. Like the location, couldn't hear the traffic at (Not sure how it would be on the other side). Small tea making facilities were the extent of any sort of kitchen or kitchenette, no toaster. The beds were comfortable, sheets cleaned once throughout stay. Room was quite clean, although matinence would be handy. It was fine staying here for a few nights, but wouldn't long- term.

Besides the fact that when we arrived the woman at the front desk was completely rude, could not even bring herself to put a smile on her face. When we entered our room it smelt, it was dirty and the bathroom was really quite disgusting with hair still in the sink... Paying $120.00 for this room just to find a comfortable place to rest our heads - was not worth it at all, I would not have paid half that for the room we stayed in.
Mean while the floors were dirty to the point we didn't want to take our shoes off.
When we decided to get a meal and eat it at the tiny broken desk as the only surface in the room available to use, we left a plastic bag on the table the next day as we checked out early for work, it contained an empty packet of biscuits - their policy is to take a $100 deposit which will be refunded to an account once checking out of the hotel is complete. When I realised they had not done this, I called the rude woman at the front desk to enquiry about this deposit, she was completely unhelpful and then claimed the room was "far too messy" to have our $100 refunded - this was completely ridiculous, and all in all we spend $220 on one of the worst hotel stay experiences we've ever had. I would advise no one to stay there and have done so to all my travelling friends. They have lost some potential regular customers due to provided us with a completely infuriating, rude and terrible experience.
