Usually stay at nearby Rydges but at a hundred $ less and a much larger room in a historic old home I'll always come back to the Mclaren All facilities you'd expect from a business hotel but cosy atmosphere and much more personal feel

A beautiful boutique hotel in a great central position. King size room with everything we needed. An excellent value breakfast in the morning too. On our welcome we were told about the lounge and sherry and port to help ourselves to, what a lovely touch. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

I had a great two night stay. The reception staff were warm and friendly, and the room was clean. The bed was comfy and I liked being able to sit outside on the room's balcony. The location was excellent- the street is quiet and leafy yet the hotel was so close to the city. The hotel felt like a home...

Arriving at the Hotel we were courteously shown our room. On entering the hallway we were met with an overpowering smell of mold. This was all throughout the Hotel and as everyone is very aware "Exposure to mold can cause health effects in some people. Mold spores are always found in the air we breathe, but extensive mold contamination may...

Hi Kerry, I am extremely disappointed to read your comments. First of all, many apologies that we did not meet your expectations. I agree that in the some parts of the hotel, there is a musty/damp aroma evident due to our main hot water pipe breaking a few weeks ago. As I'm sure you could appreciate this is not a...

Really enjoyed our stay here, hotel is clean, very comfortable and very quiet. Bed was extremely comfortable and breakfast area is really quaint. Handy to train station and a much better option than staying in Sydney CBD. Will stay again.

Parking in the street is easy even when the parking at the hotel itself is full. rooms are of generous size and well appointed. breakfast is fresh and perfectly adequate though not exciting. Managers are very friendly and...

I recently stayed at the Mc Larren for a 4 night stay and have to say I was most impressed. The place was a gorgeous, boutique old style hotel. Very clean and kept pristine. My room was cleaned daily without a miss. My bed was like sleeping on cotton wool, my first night I crashed and awoke feeling refreshed. The...

Enjoyed our stay here which was quite central to CBD via metro which was a 10min walk away. Good value in comparison with other accommodation in the area. Clean comfortable rooms with all you need. Breakfast ok if continental suits you, also ok at the price.

Attending a wedding in North Sydney and my wife has stayed here before so we booked three rooms. I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms, off street parking and the friendly staff. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very quiet during the night. There is a School next door so weekdays carries the normal...

Stayed for a few nights to attend a nearby function in North Sydney. This hotel is just great. Convenient location, plenty of restaurants around, or they offer order -in or simple snacks prepared in minutes. Breakfast was good. Staff were super friendly and obliging, rooms were a good size and very clean and comfortable, we had a King room. Surprising...
