I stayed in this motel for one night. It is about 20 minutes drive Sydney airport and it is located near to Chatswood where lots of Asian restaurants. It is very comfortable stay with a little bit city view.
Stayed at Linley Lodge for just over a week and found everything well above par for accommodation in this price bracket. Was greeted at reception like one entered a 4 or 5 star hotel, very hospitable and welcoming. Had a nice room tucked away in the corner of the property, which was clean and quiet. Room was a touch dated, but having said that though for what you are paying you'd be a fool to complain. Everything in the room was well maintained and up to speed at this end of the accommodation market. The property also boasts a grassed area with a pergola and stunning views, nice place to relax and unwind. And with such a central location accessible to surrounding areas by frequent buses makes this choice a no brainer. Would recommend anyone stay here, and sincerely hope they enjoy the money they save for what is a good value for money Motel. And with such friendly staff and owner, (whom always says hello and interacts with his guests), a true gem of a place for the non pretentious people in this world. Would definitely stay here again without doubt.…
We stayed at Linwood Lodge for 1 nite as we had to be on the north shore Friday evening and sat am. So rather than pay to.ls and fuel and our time etc, rather than drive back to Camden nsw late at night and return early am, we Google budget accomodation near St Leonards when we needed to be. The lodge was central, off street parking, under $100 no frills, but clean, airconditioned worked well and was quiet!
Fawlty Towers I would rate higher than this poor excuse for a motel. You could hear voices from the room directly above which the two occupants decided to have an intermitant conversation till 4.40am. Also heard every bit of furniture that was moved and cascades of water when the toilet was flushed. So at $99 a night for 2 people in North Sydney you be the judge. On a positive note the tv was fine, bed satisfactory and WiFi was available free but unsecured!!
ok if you want a cheap bed for the night. On the highway but my room was at the back so I could only hear the people in the house behind and the adjoining tv's, thankfully i always travel with ear plugs!
