“Dated, Noisy but a nice basic place to stay”
Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I along with our 18 month old stayed here as it was in close distance to a wedding at nearby Lauriston House. While the motel is right on busy Victoria Rd we still managed to get a reasonable nights sleep. Meals at the motel restaurant are nice at an average price. They offer breakfast in the restaurant as well but we chose to get McDonald's which is located less than 100m up the road. While I felt that the exterior of the place could be a bit cleaner, the rooms are basic and is a nice place to sleep for couples, singles or families with kids over 5 as there are no baths for little kids or babies, they do have a portable cot for $10/ night.

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights (23-28 Sept 2012)whilst on business. We were on the bottom floor facing Victoria rd. Initially we found the room very noisy as there are ventilation louvers in the bathroom window that allow the road noise into the room. We both thought that this would be a huge problem however with the bathroom door closed and laying in bed we slept soundly with no issues about the noise.

The room is basic and clean with a queen/king bed, sofa, table and 2 chairs flat screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. there is a wardrobe but NO iron or ironing board (an Iron and board can be used in the communal laundry). The bathroom is spacious but has no bath, only a shower. the shower is good with plenty of hot water.

The room is in need of renovation, but overall it was clan and the cleaners did an acceptable job. I am not sure why the louvers are still in the bathroom, double glazed windows and an extractor fan would remove most of the road noise.

There is a restaurant on site that serves basic food, we ordered room service from there and this was well prepared simple food.

There is a bus stop outside and along the road that is serviced by the M52 bus that runs into Sydney CBD, cost is $4.50 or $2.50 to Ryde shopping center. Parking for cars is directly outside the rooms.

All in all, a cheaper motel that provides a sound sleep at night and a hot shower in the morning

the Comfort Inn West Ryde, Sydney is very nice and clean. I have stayed here twice now. The bed is comfortable and the shower is lovely and hot - the main things that one would want. Additionally they have Internet throughout and while it is not the most stable it does work.
The motel does face onto the main road and as such one should expect the constant hum of traffic in the background (It is not as intrusive as one might think). To compensate the rooms to look out over a golf course and it is really attractive. For such a nice motel, it lacks some basics: you will need to bring your own shampoo and they have no ironing boards or irons in the rooms. The staff are pleasant, although on my previous trip I had a rather frustrating experience where they were unable to give me change for the washing machines and is often no solutions to to this saying that unless I had a note to exchange they could not put the charge on my room bill, or give me money through my credit card.
the on-site restaurant serves amazing food that belies its initial first impression and I would highly recommend a meal here.

Room Tip: bring your own shampoo. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper and there is a chance that traf...

This place is not much to look at from the outside. In fact, when my colleague picked me up, he wondered when we had been put on an austerity program as far as our travel budget was concerned. However, the quality of the room was better than the curbside appearance suggested. The amenities in the room were functional and the breakfast was reasonably good. The price was very good by Sydney standards. The only downside is that the nearest walkable restaurant open at 10 PM was McDonald's. If you are on a budget, you might consider giving this place some consideration if the location matches your itinerary.

Hotel was in a convenient location for my needs, though traffic noise was quite disturbing. This might be a problem for light sleepers.

Room decor was a bit tired looking. Old and slightly stained furniture and carpet, faded prints on the wall.

All this considered, the room itself was large and clean and being Sydney, the value for money was very good. I'd probably stay there again.

This is my third stay here in the past 5 years and definitely the worst. Unlike previous trips, where I had rooms at the back of the of the Motel, I was allocated one closest to "very " busy Victoria Road and the traffic noise never stopped.
The rooms are tired and need of, at the very least, a coat of paint , particularly around the door frames. The air conditioning unit is old and noisy and when the traffic noise kept me awake the sound of snoring from the adjoining unit came through ,loud and clear!! Some investment in sound insulation urgently needed.
The final straw came with the "cold"tap in the shower it has hardly any movement and is actually a safety hazard , a danger to scalding!
I put in 2 stars because the dining room meals elevated the rating! For dinner the Pumpkin Soup was very good and my steak was cooked exactly as requested! The meal was more Good Home Cooking than normal Restaurant fare and when away from home , on business, there is really nothing better!
This was a business related stay and chosen for it's convenient location, however the sleepless night made business, the next day, a real struggle.
In a nutshell the staff were courteous and friendly, the meals very good..........Unit 8 a Disaster!!!!

Room Tip: Take only rooms furthest away from Victoria Road then thoroughly inspect before accepting!!

I was impressed,my wife and i have stayed here several times and it is very good value for money,top, but limited food.
Sure some of the rooms have seen better days but they are quite reasonable size and are very clean and well maintained.
I stayed 4 nights,had breakfast 3 mornings and ate twice at night,well impressed.good food all staff friendly and attentive.
I brought to the attention of the manageress that a light globe had blown and Tv had minor problems.
She offered to replace globe immediately and get onto Foxtel again,as she had had problems but thought Fox had sorted them.
So you get more than you paid for,bearing in mind West Ryde Comfort Inn is a 3 star establishment and I will definitely stay here again next time I am in Sydney.
