Reviewed 3 September 2013

My Husband, Son and myself had to stay at the Camperdown appartments for 4 weeks, our son was in RPA having a very serious operation and we had to keep on extending our stay. The staff were wonderful and were able to keep us in our same room the whole time, they were veryp
polite and always asked "how is your son" anything we wanted they helped us with. It was very helpful to us that we could also have breakfast there. Thanks again to all the staff would certainly stay there again

Room Tip: ask for for a quiet room at the back

I only stayed one night at the Camperdown Suites and was allowed an early (12pm) check-in which was appreciated. While mentioning the reception, I was glad to receive help getting an ironing board and iron to my room, while on the other hand I was quite surprised that a hotel that (I assume) targets business travelers does not have these facilities in their rooms.

In the end I spent little time in the room but appreciated it being neat and quite functional, although I had to look hard for free power outlets to charge my gadgets. I suppose the room would seem a bit cramped for a longer stay of say 4-5 days or more. The closeness to Parramatta Rd is both a blessing and curse: While public transport is excellent to the CBD and also hailing a taxi takes only a minute or two, the road is a source of never ending noise. I had a room essentially as far away as possible from Parra Rd facing one of the side streets and still had issues with the thousands of cars and trucks that pass this point. Sitting out on the small balcony did not feel appealing to me at all.

So, if you are prepared to trade some serenity for a smaller hotel bill, then I would recommend Camperdown Suites.

Major upside(s): Service and price.

Major downside: Noise from the road.

Interesting fact: There is an Android tablet to use in the room, which may have been of interest had I had time to play around with it.

Room Tip: Ask the reception for a room away from Parramatta Rd to get rid of noise, even if you are not very s...

Stayed at the apartments for two nights mid week. My room was located on the first floor, which is actually the ground floor adjacent to the intersection of Parramatta Road and Lyons Road. This intersection is quite busy, especially at night with trucks, and is very noisy. The external noise problem is exacerbated by the internal noises of the plumbing (you can hear the toilets flushing on the second floor and when the showers are running) and the closing (slamming) of doors. It appears that the building was constructed for a commercial use but has been converted into aprtments.

The rooms are nicely fitted out with all the mod cons, hwoiver the room is on the small side.

The location is OK, with a 10 minute walk to the cosmopolitan Newtown high street. The cafe next door (Deus) is good for breakfasts.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the first floor.

This hotel is actually part of the Quest group and they sent me down here despite the fact I had a booking for the Missenden Rd Quest apartments. Parking is further down the road and outdoors, which is a concern in this area. There are 2 irons to service the entire building and these are kept in the first floor laundry which is open from 8am to 8 pm. There is no rooom in the laundry to use an ironing board. see photo and draw your own conclusions.

These apartments are very close to Sydney University and RPA. The staff are friendly, the suites really comfortable. The lift was fast and quiet. The plates, cups etc were absolute minimum level. There is some traffic noise. They are really easy to get to using the bus (stops across the road on arrival) and train from the airport. City buses stop right next door very frequently and you can even buy tickets next door! Great cafe across the road.
Individual airconditioner unit means that you can choose the temp level.
Can walk to Annandale shops, cafes, postoffice, bookshop etc.

Room Tip: Perhaps further back from Parramatta road for more quiet

We were looking for a serviced apartment with a kitchenette to stay in Sydney for a week without paying too much. The booking was quick and easy via the internet and queries were answered promptly. The apartment was a little tight in terms of space but they had managed to fit in a microwave, fridge, sink, tv , working table, 2 chairs. Place was clean and spotless when we arrived and there were basic amenities provided as well.

We liked the location but this is if you want to be near University of Sydney or Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Having said that, trips to the city by bus is only approximately 10 minutes away and you are 20 minutes drive away from the airport. There are many buses that goes to the city so waiting time is pretty short.

Our main grouse of the place was the servicing of the apartment. We stayed for 1 week and we had the apartment serviced 3 times, which would have been fine if the job was well done. Unfortunately it was not. Bed linen was not changed and in fact remain clearly untouched throughout. The entire bed area was not cleaned at all with dust collecting on the tables and furniture and carpets. (the main road next to us is pretty busy so it gets dusty). Toilets were hastily cleaned - very obviously a spray down cleaning without getting rid of any dirt. Amenities were not topped up unless called for (they do bring these things up pretty quickly though once you call for it). For those traveling with kids or folks who have sensitive airways or allergies, the level of servicing of the rooms may be an issue.

Otherwise, the place itself is secure, pleasant and provides Wi-Fi (payable) as well as free common laundry facilities.

If you are looking for good value, clean, modern, friendly and convenient to city, shops restaurants and for me the RPA, then look no further than Camperdown Suites. I stayed part,/s my husband for over one week whilst I was in hospital. Camperdown suites are run really well by the Manager and all the staff. They are friendly and accomodating to everyones needs. Bus outside, internet next door by the hour and in rooms. close to city and RPA. Deus cafe/restaurant at side and just the best Thailand restaurant take away or sit down behind. The family that run it are so lovely and make great meals, great value and make the best herbal teas. Parking is at a small charge close behind and secure. They are on a busy and noisy road yet you would not think so when inside. Very clever design & colours with internal water feature open to the sky & some suites makes for a very relaxing and fresh sound and feel great to recoup after operation as myself. The rooms are very clean and modern. with LCD and comfortable bed and great strong shower. Kitchenette is good and colours all match to give a warm feel. At night very secure as security doors into the foyer and secure doors to each hall and level aswell. They supply free washing machines and dryers and irons which was great to not to have to go home to wash instead all done before. Thank you Camperdown suites. We would definately stay again without hesitation. Note we stayed in one a double room 116 and we were more than happy, so it can only get better with a queen or king ect. Do not bother to search for other accomodation as this place is a surprise package. They can organize breakfast if needed ect. But supermarkets close by anyway. Can hear doors shutting but that is in any hotel. Overall :Excellent value.

Room Tip: Just tell the staff your needs they are friendly and will try to accomodate
