Positive Reviews

Informative and friendly staff

A highlight for many previous guests was the service delivered by the hotel. The staff members working at the property have frequently been labelled as very friendly, informative and helpful overall.

Convenient location for Sydney

The location of the accommodation was an advantage for most former visitors. As well as being a short journey from the airport, the property is also just a 15-minute drive from Sydney CBD and all that it has to provide.

On-site bistro and bar a bonus

The on-site dining and drinking facilities have been well-received by most past guests that stayed at the hotel. The prices at the bistro were described as reasonable, and the quality of the food has also been praised.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathrooms not convenient

Previous visitors have often been disappointed about the omission of en-suite facilities as part of the hotel's rooms. As a result, using the shared bathrooms has proven to be inconvenient at times, while their condition was also sometimes judged unfavourably

Dated and basic rooms

The general quality of the rooms was not seen in the best light by former guests that stayed at the hotel. As well as apparently being overly basic with few amenities, the rooms were described as past their best and in need of revamping.

Noise can be problematic

Based on the feedback of numerous past visitors, noise can be troublesome when residing at the property. It has been stated that, along with the noise from passing traffic, the clamour from the on-site bar is a potential issue until late into the night.
