It looks very ordinary from the outside, but it's just lovely inside with a beautiful little atrium with fountains and lovely lounge and table settings. So your room is actually inside. The rooms themselves are a nice size with comfy bed and crisp linen. The bathroom looks renovated with...

Bathroom wasn't cleaned properly, mound on the ceiling above the shower, air ventilation in bathroom dirty, shower sprays water over bathroom floor as there isn't a shower door. Requested a quote room, checked on arrival told yes it is so I was disappointed when it was fronting the busy main road. I also thought all motels were non-smoking & even...

The Garden Lodge is clean and tidy and the staff were very polite and accommodating. This would be a great alternative to some of the more expensive hotels around the airport as it is only about 7 km away. I also liked the secure parking the only downside to this accommodation that it does not have any restaurants nearby. Although...

We stayed in the family room overnight being 2 Adults & 2 Children (8 & 10). First impression from the outside is not great and reception has a mouldy smell but the room was clean & tidy. Their is free on-site secure parking which is a bonus. For an overnight stay with the kids it is not a bad option.

Liked free parking & wi-fi, Loved the shower water flow (decent). The location is great if you want to catch train. It could be better if the chairs are stain free. Overall, it is value for money stay.

The accommodation in the rooms was good, however on entry of the reception area the smell of wet mouldy carpets was very off putting. The staff were very helpful and phoned us a taxi and followed up when the taxi would arrive

Doesn't look much from the road, but the rooms are nice, they are clean and have everything you need. Staff are helpful and friendly. The road is busy, but we did hear any traffic notice through the night. Very reasonably priced for Sydney. We'd definitely stay again.
