Our first stay here but we will certainly return. Initially I had to shop around for a decent deal as I needed three rooms. Staff were helpful and I got the best deal by calling direct. The motel was easy to find and off road parking whilst you check in. Parking was underneath and has decent size parking spots which...

Checked in by Bruce (hope I remembered his name correctly?) who was so helpful and friendly. My kids thought he was awesome and shared there easter eggs with him! I immediately knew we had chosen the right hotel for our first trip to Sydney by our first impressions. The bed was the best mattress we have ever slept on. Staff...

Being in Surry Hills and about 5 minutes from Central Station, this hotel is walking distance or at most a short train ride to all the major sights in Sydney. It has its own nice mid range priced restaurant and bar, as well as a guest lounge. The room was large and spacious and comfortable. We had a few problems...

Allocated a newly refurbished room we enjoyed a large space, couch and big TV and big bed and an industrial view. As an artist I love looking for patterns and shapes and this view provided an array of interest for me. But we do have one complaint. The new very large TV had a white, bright, 'stand by' light that...

We booked this hotel as it was massively reduced in price from £600ish pound a night to £96 so we thought it was worth trying out as we travelled through Sydney. On first impressions the hotel was great! The reception was lovely and the fish made it feel like a relaxing place to wait. The room itself at first seemed...

Stayed for one night. Excellent location, could walk to darling harbour, kings cross, plenty of places. Had a room with a balcony, looked onto the brick walls of other buildings so no great view.. but I liked it. Super fast check in and check out. Parking under building for extra $40. In the middle of renovations so a little noise...

I had accidentally booked this motel a night in advance on Wotif instead of the night we had travelled up there, so I rang up and booked the night I was supposed to book through the motel. Only to be told I hadn't paid for either of the nights and checked my emails to find two receipts to say I...

We got an amazing deal, so had little else to go on before arrival. We caught the train from the airport and walked, with luggage!, down to the hotel from Central which was pretty easy. Check in was easy, the room was a really decent size and the bed was comfy. Breakfast was included, it was ample without being exciting....

After requesting a quiet room we were woken at 5.30am each morning by rubbish trucks in the back lane way. A complaint to management offered free breakfast or parking, neither of which we required. A request to reduce the room rate was not forthcoming as I had already paid and it was too difficult for them to figure out a...

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
