My wife and I are giving this place high marks. Not because it's the Waldorf Astoria but because it's honest comfortable accommodation at prices that are quite reasonable for the inner north shore of Sydney. So often, when you opt for inexpensive places to stay, you get 'cheap and nasty'. Not in this case.
After consulting Tripadvisor and deeming the CINS suitable for our needs, I got confused by prices quoted on the booking web sites that seemed to be offering different price ranges for the same types of room, so I contacted the hotel direct. They offered a choice of standard double at about $129 or deluxe double at $149 – we chose the deluxe because it was on the ground floor with parking outside the unit door, and we're handicapped as far as stairs and walking are concerned. We stayed four nights so we got a discount.
At first sight the building gives cause for apprehension since it's decidedly 1960s style. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, but the room showed plenty of evidence of a real effort to keep it up to date and was certainly spotless. Decor is pleasant and furnishings comfortable and relatively new. Fresh carpet, a desk, a table, and two good armchairs with all the usual TV, mini-bar, tea-making facilities etc. that you'd expect. Very effective light block-out curtains and absolute quiet made for a good night's sleep on a near-new thick mattress. The bathroom had been competently renovated fairly recently, and both bedroom and bathroom were quite roomy. Even the somewhat unexpected view of the bushland setting was pleasing.
We're told that the less expensive rooms on a lower level are slightly smaller, get less light, and have been painted but not renovated to the same standard.
In our view the photos on the Tripadvisor web site are accurate.
