Pros: Proximity to the beach.
Cons: See previous questions
Rooms were comfortable. Bathrooms could however do with a spruce up, Mirrors, tiles etc were showing their age. The odour of a grease trap obviously near the flift well was unpleasant when using the lift.

It is not Paradise!

Posted Nov 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
I thought the definition of a Motel was one that accommodated visitors with cars. Misery on the desk advised us on arrival that there was no parking available. Then miraculously found a parking space at extra cost in the underground car park which had no lift access to the motel. Room smelt of cheap disinfectant, bathroom was tiny very old standard, with only a shower and toilet. There was no wash hand basin in the 'bathroom', this being doubled up by using the kitchen sink in the bedroom for all ablutions! Surely a health and safety issue. The whole place looked old and tired, unpainted and uncared for. Misrepresented on Internet website, where the photo's make it look good. A rip off for the price. If we had been aware of the low standard, we would not have booked there.

Pros: Location - right on the ocean front, being able to swim before breakfast Good value
Cons: Decor slightly dated. Fridge froze the milk at first
Arrived early, an although unable to check in then, I was able to leave my bag, and check in a hour later (which was still early) I had a triple room to myself, so there was plenty of room. It was clean & tidy The motel rooms are angled to the sea, so the 'ocean view' is some-what limited, but I could see the sea & promenade (the apartments appear to have a much better aspect) The shower room is quite small, but adequate, and there is only one sink/basin , which is in the main room, not by the toilet

Beach-side with pool

Posted Oct 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Pros: Across the street from the beach; easy walking to lots of activities; pretty pool on the rooftop; parking available ($15 fee); refrigerator included; even small room didn't feel too small; attentive front desk staff. Cons: Slightly dated (but very clean); expensive wi-fi; difficult to maneuver luggage from below-ground parking to room (no elevator in parking area); TV didn't work. Overall, a relatively pleasant stay - I would stay again.

Quick getaways

Posted Oct 14, 2013
Whilst the location is beautiful & convenient, the decor of the place is quite dated. Spending almost $200 a night, you are definitely only paying for the location. The staff were friendly enough. I wouldn't say value for money but if you're in town for a nights stay, I would recommend purely for location & convenience factor.

Close to the beach and all amenities.

Posted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: Location, view, friendly staff.
Cons: Shower facilities need a complete overhaul.
Location: Ferries, restaurants and bars within walking distance to the motel. Easy access to Circular Quay And Darling Harbour.
Compact but clean room. Pity about the hot water, cold most of the time and hardly any pressure in the shower. Friendly and obliging staff. Great view from room 101.

Great family seachange

Posted Sep 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great sea view, nice spacious room, excellent location so close to the beach and the Corso, nice rooftop pool. Would definitely stay there again, though it would be good to have more bedding options in family rooms. Queen plus single always leads to family fights about who has to double up, and the room could easily have accommodated a triple arrangement.
