efficient place to stay before travelling out the next day from Sydney Airport, really the only reason for us to consider. easy access to airport either by shuttle or could use the train with a close by station. the rooms are getting a bit tired looking and worn, high price for internet/wifi is ridiculous. you can get free 20minutes in the lobby per day-get with it and make it free access. rooms were clean enough, but not that comfortable and quite small.

Room Tip: only stay if you want something close to Sydney Airport for one night. otherwise not worthit. You can book the shuttle to/from Airport at time of booking on line, but make sure you still sign up and get your passes early from the registration desk. i may look for other options next time.

Dear Gerald H,

Thank you for posting a review - I appreciate your positive comments about the hotel. Unlike hotels in the USA, major hotel chains in Australia run their internet services through third party suppliers which attracts a nominal fee for usage.

Regards,

Ian Pirodon
Hotel Manager

Had an early start in Sydney the next day so came up from Melbourne the previous evening. It was easy to find the shuttle to the hotel, which is one that services all the hotels in the area (and is pretty grotty). The room was slightly larger than your normal hotel room, the furnishings were a bit dated but clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was the typical buffet style so common and tasty. All-in-all if I have to stay near the airport again, I'd be happy to stay here.

Very comfy accommodations, just a block or so from rail stop to city centre. The fitness center is small, in the basement, with just two treadmills...there is a nice sauna. The WiFi is not free, and after paying $27au for 24hrs, I found it was practically too weak to use from my room.

Stayed one night before my overseas holiday to the USA. I had initially booked two rooms, one for my grandmother who was going to travel with me, but could not come due to being terminally Ill. The hotel was happy to credit my room for her cancelled room, and refunded me the difference. This hotel went above and beyond to assist me and i will definatley stay here on my next over seas trip.

I ordered a steak dinner from the in-room service and it was beautifully cooked and was just delicious.

The location is very close to the airport. I had an early morning flight which meant i had to check out at 3:30 am, and the hotel arranged the taxi for me which was nice aswell. The only thing i found awkward was the fact that taxi drivers dont like the short distance from the hotel to the airport, which is no fault to the hotel, it would be good though if there was an arrangement that Taxi drivers were ok with this short distance? -

Room Tip: i asked for the airport view, which is quite a good view of the run way and planes taking off landing. - The aircraft noise didnt seem to make a difference the glass windows are quite thick and you cant hear it. so its a nice view in my opinion!

The hotel is close to the airport, (5 minutes drive in the early hours of the morning).
The lobby and public areas are impressive and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.
We had a family room (2 queens) which was spacious and the room and bathroom were a good size and very clean. There was a good selection of teas, coffees, hot chocolate and biscuits in the room and a bar fridge with room to store a few things of your own.
The food in the restaurant at night was very good, and the breakfast had a good selection with an egg chef with some tasty special options for omelettes, pancakes etc.
Why I have only given an average rating rather than above is based mainly on the value. For the price I would expect closer to a 5 star accommodation. The bathrooms are outdated with cracked cistern and tiles, a shower over the bath only, noisy air conditioning, and exceptionally slow service for our evening meal. On arrival at the restaurant we were told to take a seat at the bar and have drinks while waiting for our table to be made up. After 20 minutes with no bar service we helped ourselves to some water as we were so thirsty. At least one of the wait staff had been coopted from reception, so maybe there was a staffing problem that night.
None of these things in themselves were terrible but together, along with the usual overpricing typical of Sydney, mean an average rather than very good rating. It is a good hotel and I think is probably the best on offer.
