Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Although we encourage constructive guest comments as they create communication between our motel and our guests, we do not tolerate malicious attacks on our business. This review does not really provide any helpful insights for other travellers and is merely interested in undeservingly harming our business. It is also incongruent with our other...

This motel is located on a very busy road so traffic noise is a big problem. Our room was small, noisy and in need of complete refurbishment. Unable to connect to WiFi in room due to inadequate signal and so had to keep going outside to connect. Not recommended and won't be returning!

There is nothing good about this hotel. They don't clean the room while your staying. There is not enough cutlery that also don't get cleaned. It's the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The shower don't work properly. You don't get the normal refills of toilet paper, coffee, and milk. The Tv remote doesn't work. It's very small rooms....

Dear Guest, We are extremely disappointed to hear your review. We are known to our guests as a clean motel, as all rooms are serviced regularly by our housekeeping staff. Rooms occupied by guests for several nights are cleaned thoroughly unless the guest indicates that they would not like to be disturbed. Cutlery gets cleaned and additional cutlery can be...

The hotel staff are very helpful and efficient. The motel is well positioned for a short city stay. The motel and rooms are very old but the things that matter are there..clean sheets, comfortable bed, clean towels and extremely secure parking with room card swipe access to open security gate. On the downside, the traffic noise from Parramatta rd is...

I paid $180 for a night for a place that should have been about $90.00 a night it is old and run down, I stay in about 30 motels a year and would say this is about the worst I have stayed in given the price charged

Dear Guest, We’re sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay. During peak seasons such as school holidays we often sell out of smaller room types, leaving only family-size rooms available. Typically these are occupied by 4 or 5 people, and thus cost more than single or double rooms. On this occasion you booked at the last...

4 of us were looking for cheap accommodation (nothing fancy) just for 1 night before flying overseas the next day. This motel was very good value, not far from the city, and just a 10-15 minute walk to Summer Hill shopping centre. The motel rooms were small, but clean and the shower had plenty of hot water and good pressure....

Very friendly staff. The motel is Very Very tired and desperately needs to be updated. Motel is priced accordingly and is a cheaper option then city hotels. Public transport is at the door.
