This hotel is old and in need a of makeover (or demolition) - inside the hotel looks and feels much older than the google view from Victoria Road. This is one hotel I would not return for another stay. As you walk down the hallway towards your room you get this feeling - what am I doing here. The carpet is very old and repairs are needed to various holes / fittings as you walk past. Once inside your room you feel a little bit better, it appears a bit cleaner and generally ok (but it was dark and the lights were dim). The staff were friendly and efficient on checkout in the morning. (I arrived late and the reception was closed). Parking is in a non secure open area of the property. Do your research first if this is the hotel you want to book and perhaps inspect the room prior to accepting / paying. As a child I lived nearby, and now when visiting friends I stay around the North Ryde / Macquarie University area. If you need to save money stay at one of the local pubs. The more I think about it, this is the worst hotel I have stayed in - its comparison would be some as the old dingey hotels / drug rooms from Kings Cross in the 80's.
