We stayed here for a week as we needed to visit a few people around Sydney and the hotel fitted our budget.
It is more motel than hotel in layout, but the facilities are excellent.
The good first:
The rooms are very clean and well equipped (especially for the price of a Sydney hotel). We had a large desk / working area, lounge area, flat screen tv, decent bed and nice shower room.
The room service staff were unbelievably friendly, and efficient yet unobtrusive.
The reception and kitchen staff were also top notch and super helpful.
The leisure facilities (which we made good use of) were also fantastic; two tennis courts (for which balls and racquets are provided foc), a nice swimming pool and sauna area and a very well equipped gym - there's no excuse not to keep up your training if you're staying!
And the bad:
The location is not ideal. I had friend to visit in Manly (which isn't too far by road) and in the city. Basically you need a car or a lot of time and patience to use the public transport system.
The breakfast service finishes at 9 on weekdays and 9:30 on Sundays. This wouldn't be too bad if there were other places to eat nearby if you're having a slow morning, but there aren't. This did present a small issue, although again the staff were very accommodating when we arrived at 9:15 one morning. The breakfast itself is very well prepared and reasonably priced for a Sydney hotel.
There isn't too much to do within waking distance. Pub wise there is the Terry Hills, which is not too bad. There are a couple of restaurants on garden centres (that sadly don't do breakfast during the week). Next door there is a wonderful farm shop offering crazily cheap fruit veg and supplies.
All in all I would recommend the hotel, if you have a car and are not to bothered by entertainment in the immediate area.
