Stayed for two nights. Tidy, close to where I needed to be, free wifi and a good sized room. Perfect for the work trip to Sydney. No noisy neighbors, good sized shower and I liked that I could open the door to the small balcony for some fresh air.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Choose it for the vehicle parking & access to the Blue mountains. Handy to both light rail & suburb trains. Rooms are a decent size, very basic but for the price it's what I expected. Good location if you want to park your car & use public transport. I would consider using this Motel again.... More
