A well located home from home to travel out from to enjoy the sights of Sydney, close to many eating places for a quick breakfast or an evening meal, local train station a short walk away, buses pass the front door.

The reception was great. Information was very helpful from check-in to check-out. Very accessible and walking distance to everything. We are from Perth to attend family gathering and it was a very good rest after the event. We will be back soon.

Very good value accommodation and well within walking distance to central station and the central city but also just far enough away from the hustle and noise of the inner city to be totally relaxing.

Clean and convenient. Breakfast packs in the fridge are helpful.Staffs are friendly and efficient. We are sorry just the information about the airport shuttle on the website is incorrect. Taxi is cheaper and more convenient for a couple / group than other transportation. It costs 30-35 dollars, takes less than 30 mins.

Not a flash hotel but the rooms are certainly clean, the beds were comfortable & loved that the shower had great water pressure. Easy walking to Central Railway & all the staff were very accommodating & friendly. Also fabulous that you can park onsite for a modest fee as there is very little parking in that area of Sydney.

Satisfied with the services. Warm reception, clean hotel, good services. Areas you can improve are - - Put elevator in the building. It is task to climb up 2 floors with all luggage without help/porter. - Increase number of channels in TV. - Reduce the rates.
