Was struggling to find any reasonable proved accommodation, chose this place and it was very run down and basic. Bathroom had a hole in the roof and the room had a musty smell. Roof was in desperate need of repairs. bunk bed was directly in front of the air conditioner.

We booked a room for 2 nights, so we could be near to both the Sydney CBD and the Royal Easter Show. The first room we were offered had a tap handle missing on the hand basin. The dirty and shabby furniture in the room one would expect to find on a local council kerbside collection day ready to be...

We brokered a very good deal when two days out of town, intending to stay several days. Upon arriving one day early we met the senior gent in charge/owner. Once he established we had NOT paid with bank card, we were told, sorry all deal off. BUT as it is dark and we are in town first time ever, one...

The room smelt of old mould, a piece of carpet was missing, the room was very tired. The noise from the road and aircraft was annoyingly loud. The basic furniture needed repair. We will not be staying again.

We stayed here for 4 nights - we had a family room. Here are the things that make this a terrible place to stay: - we found cigarette butts in our bed!!! (clearly not clean sheets!). When we took the matter to the reception, they apologised and offered us a can of softdrink! The following day we found another cigarette...

When we arrived he was nice but didn't tell us where to park so we guessed to go up the ramp but that was a stupid mistake cause no parks and a very tight area to turn around in. We got into the rooms which they looked basic but then my friend got a towel out and it had blood...

Upon reading the positive reviews, my friends and I thought it would be a decent place to stay for the night, but we were mistaken. I don't know why anyone would give this place 4 stars let alone 5; I'm being quite generous in giving it 2. The car park we were guaranteed didn't exist, and there's only one ramp...

The pictures and marketing is honest. This is a budget motel and I paid $110 a night for 4 nights. It didn't promise anything more than it delivered. And if what you want is a place to sleep at night and you're not fussed about the aesthetics - then this will suit! Not a bargain, but surprisingly quiet (given it's...

The hotel is far from Sydney downtown. There is little around it. Our room was on the second floor. It was reached by exiting reception and using the key card to open a gate leading to a covered car park, passing through to a set of stairs and walking up four flights to the second floor (yes, no elevator) and...

This is an old building, no frills BUT it is as presented and very reasonable tariff. We had 3 nights, complimentary newspaper from reception, well made bed is comfortable, sheets crisp and clean, fluffy white towels, everything is well maintained.
