Glad we chose this motel for our visit to Sydney, as it is one of the better mid range motel we have stayedin. Free wifi and large room really helped with our stay. We stayed 3 nights and the housekeeping was excellent each day. There was also a breakfast bar on a serve yourself basis. All inall this hotel is...

Ok the price was cheep the bed comfortable but because the wall between our room and next door was not insulated we could hear everything . I mean groans and all. T V sound was enough to keep us awake . In morning the power board went down so no water for coffee or toast . I would only estimate...

The Garden Lodge is clean and tidy and the staff were very polite and accommodating. This would be a great alternative to some of the more expensive hotels around the airport as it is only about 7 km away. I also liked the secure parking the only downside to this accommodation that it does not have any restaurants nearby. Although...

We stayed in the family room overnight being 2 Adults & 2 Children (8 & 10). First impression from the outside is not great and reception has a mouldy smell but the room was clean & tidy. Their is free on-site secure parking which is a bonus. For an overnight stay with the kids it is not a bad option.

Liked free parking & wi-fi, Loved the shower water flow (decent). The location is great if you want to catch train. It could be better if the chairs are stain free. Overall, it is value for money stay.

The accommodation in the rooms was good, however on entry of the reception area the smell of wet mouldy carpets was very off putting. The staff were very helpful and phoned us a taxi and followed up when the taxi would arrive

Doesn't look much from the road, but the rooms are nice, they are clean and have everything you need. Staff are helpful and friendly. The road is busy, but we did hear any traffic notice through the night. Very reasonably priced for Sydney. We'd definitely stay again.

This motel was ranked as the best in Haberfield.... I would not like to see the worst! The bathroom was updated and reasonably clean ( good shower head) but the bedroom was scruffy and worn. Bed was comfortable and must admit that the location for us was very good. The motel is on a major road but was well insulated...

Good location, very close to train station and bus stop. The room is quite spacious and clean. All the guests share one washing machine and two dryers. Although it's a little bit noisy at night, cause it's close to a busy road, this is not a bad choice if you have a tight budget in Sydney.
