Quest Camperdown on Missenden Rd is the perfect combination of small-business warmth and friendliness, and large-business professionalism and attention to detail.
As the price was significantly less than other accommodation in Sydney, I was not expecting anything flash. I was expecting a bit more than a youth hostel, but nothing like the four-star CBD motel I stayed in about six months ago.
Boy, was I proven wrong.
Every interaction with staff left me smiling. From my initial phone enquiries, to checking in, to encountering housekeeping staff, to checking out... every single staff member was warm and friendly, exuding genuine cheerfulness and willingness to help.
The location is unbeatable - a stone's throw from Parramatta Rd, buses and taxi's running past constantly, and a taxi rank just up the road at RPA. I needed to go to the Enmore Theatre, and found an available taxi on the rank which got me there with plenty of time to spare (and might I add, the taxi driver was a lovely chatty grandfatherly-type - I will go to Ottoman restaurant next time I'm in Sydney, Mr Taxi Driver, I promise!).
The room was nothing short of astounding. Full kitchen, laundry, separate bedroom, massive bathtub, and a separate toilet (so when you travel with others, you're not left crossing your legs until the bathroom is free). All rooms were very spacious, and spotlessly clean. The bed and pillows were the most comfortable I've ever slept in, in any motel anywhere.
The design is lovely. The art perfectly reflects the colours of the room. I'm not an arty person at all, but I spent some time gazing at the beautiful huge prints hung on the walls.
Sorry. I'm gushing. But I was so very impressed with the property and the lovely staff, I had to gush.
I will never stay in any other inner-west/CBD accommodation again. That four-star motel I stayed in six months ago, which charges twice the price but doesn't even supply milk for your morning coffee (and often is less-than-clean)? They've lost me as a repeat customer.
Quest Camperdown has me as a fan for life.
