Reviewed 27 March 2013

Conveniently located halfway between Mascot Airport and Sydney, this place is a good rest stop, and quite affordable for Sydney prices. The rooms are spacious and facilities are well appointed with every conceivable modcon. Very good service and parking, and better value than the previous accommodation we stayed in Sydney. Will visit again.

We stayed there for three nights when the building was brand new. The rooms, I must say, were really good, with all the equipment needed and with very good taste.
The gym/spa area was not available yet, but I think it would be open soon.
The location was not the greatest. As we rented bikes, we could go to Centennial park, Bondi and even to the Royal Botanic Gardes. I think the main issue with the location was that the nearest supermarket wasn't that close.

But it was a very good place to spend the night!

Stayed at the Apartment with my adult son for one night. We had asked for 2 bedrooms and were upgraded to a suite. Spacious and well laid out with good facilities in the kitchen.. Walking distance to a number of take away restaurants and bottle shop if you don't want to cook. Having your own car is recommended as public transport very limited. Convenient to Sydney airport. Would stay again.

Dear Hernan S,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Meriton Zetland and thank you for your review. We are very proud of the style of the apartments and being brand new they are well equipped with all you need when spending a few nights away. We are a little out of the city but most things are within walking or taxi fare distance, if you do not mind travelling.
The gym and pool area are now open for our guests to use.

Kind regards,
Belinda L Hotel Manager

We were two couples flying into Sydney from the international airport and heading out the next day on domestic. For us they were perfect. Spacious, clean, luxurious! They aren't really close, but for price, worth it!

The apartment itself was probably the nicest thing i have ever stayed in, although if you do not have a car like i did not, i'm not sure where you will find food to cook in it. There is no outdoor pool which wasn't ideal and its a very long trip to Bondi from here, so i just went over to Centennial Park on my second day. The walk to Green Square is not far at all if you are in decent shape, i even did it with my luggage. But as far as i could tell, you will have to take a cab back if you go out for the night because the trains stop around midnight. And as a final note, the crowd on the weekend was very young at this place, so that could be good or bad depending on what you are looking for.

Dear bbdect,

"Top Notch Rooms". Thank you for such a great review. It is always nice to read comments such as yours. We are a little out of the city but like your wrote, things are still within walking distance or the other option is a taxi.
The weekend I believe you are talking about with all the young people, there was a music festival at Randwick Race Course that weekend and we did have a younger crowd. Most weekends it is quiet and relaxing.

Kind regards,

The Meriton chain is quite uniformed and we try to stay at them whenever available in the cities we are visiting. Zetland is the newest of their properties having only opened a few months ago. Each room from the Studio to the multi-bedroom apartments has a full kitchen set up (gas stove, fridge, microwave, dishwater and full cooking equipement) as well as modern furniture, parking, pool/spa/gym facilities and well priced.

Our only negative about the stay was the current construction occuring next door. Unfortunately we were on the end of block L and were closest to the noise. Once this is finished, this property will be a great choice for our Sydney stays, at just a few suburbs from the CBD (easily accessible by train, taxi or bus if you don't have a car). Lots of nearby cafes, shops and even a cinema about 20-30 minutes walk.

Room Tip: Until the end of 2013, request a room on the other end of the building to the construction.

Dear DomiDrakcir,

Thank you for your fantastic comments. It is great to read that you try and stay with Meriton at every opportunity when you are travelling. Return guest are very important to us.
The apartments are all well equipped with a full kitchen and lots of space.
There is still a lot of construction going on around the area which in time will make Zetland a great place to stay.

Kind regards,

Brand new apartments with great fitout and modern, clean rooms. I stayed in two different apartments (a 1 bedroom and a 1 bedroom with study/extra bed) on two separate visits and both were big and light with large balconies. Staff were helpful although, there's usually only two on the desk at any given time so at peak times there can be a wait. Anyone considering staying here should remember that these are serviced apartments so not all the conveniences of hotels are available (eg. someone to help with luggage) and it takes a long time for any special requests to be attended to (eg. asking for extra towels took 2 hours until they arrived and the clothes airer that I requested didn't come at all). However, overall, the value for money is excellent. The location is actually really good if you have a car as it's close to the airport, local supermarket, surry hills restaurant area and the city but definitely too remote if you are wanting to walk. The suburb is leafy and has a nice sense of community. The only 'new building teething issue' I experienced was a false fire alarm going off at 2am in the morning. I would definitely stay here again and also highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing AWAY from South Dowling Street.

Dear Linda R,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Meriton Zetland and thank you for your review. The apartments at Zetland are "great value for money" with spacious living areas. Being just out of the city, it nice to have a big balcony to relax on after a long day.

We are building up our staff levels to accommodate for the influx of people choosing to stay with us so in time, the check in time will improve. I will pass on your comments to the Housekeeping Department about how long it took for your extra request and hope to shorten that time.

Once again, thank you for choosing to stay with us and we hope to see you in the near future.

Kind regards,
Belinda L Hotel Manager
