We stayed 2 nights in the 2 bdrm suite. The room was great with a lounge, kitchen with dishwasher, dining table etc. Staff were very friendly & accommodating. Housekeeping was very good & we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts in the restaurant. Free wifi was very fast.

In short I have never reviewed a property as I'm quiet easy to please and can go with the flow on most things but this stat was so bad I felt compelled to save other travelers a similar experience.

We drove past the entry as it is not very well signposted. Check in was fine but we needed to use the stairs from the carpark as you apparently need to go down then up to make the lift work. Once we were in the room things got better. The room (2 bed apartment) was spacious, clean and comfortable. A... More

We had stayed at the hotel before as its handy for North Sydney and visiting friends. Unfortunately when we checked in reception staff seems completely disinterested and when we asked questions about Rydges Rewards it all seemed too much.

This location was very convenient as there was a restaurant in the hotel and cafes in easy walking distance. The staff was wonderful!

I stay here regularly for work, and am also a priority guest reward member but neither of these things seem to get acknowledged.

Stay in this business hotel from 7-10 July 2015. Location is very good and only 100m distance from international airport. Queen room size is fit and buffet breakfasts are acceptable. Besides, staffs at reception are friendly and provide professional services.

The location of the hotel met my needs and was a short walk to our office. Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Unfortunately there was no hot water for shower in the morning, busy time I guess and room service breakfast were not able to provide requested items that appeared on the breakfast menu, bit disappointing.
