I have stayed in most of Sydneys prestigious hotels and although this hotel was more basic than most it makes up in service. The staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble.

Excellent place to stay with a family. Plenty of room. Great beds. Staff very friendly and willing to help. Parking is a little difficult but only because of one way street. Short walk to central station.

It is a short walk to the station and there are coffee shops, pubs, and Lebanese restaurants nearby. This is a decent place to stay if it is value for...

Great place to stay that is reasonably priced. Staff very friendly, room was quite large. Only drawback was the windows were glazed for privacy so it was a little claustrophobic. Great location for easy access to CBD.

very good location close to trains/bus. Staff was very helpful and kind with always a big smile. I called to say I was coming quite early and the room was available much sooner than check-in time and was perfectly cleaned. Room was also quiet Airport shuttle was very convenient and at a fare price (50AUD for 5)
