“Good value for price”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Very good in most aspects
Although being close to a bar/bistro and main road - you are well insulated from loud noise. We have slept well every stay (over 3 times)
Continental breakfast is lovely and unexpected!
Rooms are sized enough
Desks and chairs okay for work (Business/Uni - we stayed during heavy exam/course time from Macquarie Uni)
The bar/bistro is a great place to dine - great specials, otherwise can be slightly overpriced (at least for students)
The only issue I have with this stay is the ability to shower at the right time. During busy times at the bar it appears hot water is in short supply. Morning and late night showers are fine, but between 6-9pm hot water can be scarce
However, staff have always been friendly. If there is no one at reception, just ask for the manager at the bar and they will attend to you promptly!

$100 for a room for 3 in Sydney. Awesome value. The rooms are very basic but clean and have all you really need. The continental breakfast tray was a pleasant surprise. The bistro and bar are great. $10 roasts & nightly specials. Location is close to Macquarie centre and university. The Assistant Manager very lovely and welcoming.

Coffee and tea facilities with basic breakfast included. Food and alcohol are available in the main part of the hotel with modern bistro and bars. Friendly staff and good service. On site open air parking available at no extra cost. Close to Macquarie Centre and Macquarie Uni. Cheap option for accomodation in North Ryde on the Epping Highway. No pool, gym or similiar type of facilities. I would return for the cheap price, expecially if all you need is a bed, meal and beer.
