I was lying on my bed at around 9.30pm watching TV. Fortunately I had put the door chain on. I heard a key in my door - not worrying too much about this as people get confused but then my door opened - as it was opening I flew out of bed and slammed the door shut. It had been...

The Inn is clean and neat. There is a bar and restaurant attached to the Inn. The food in the Hotel is well cooked without the taste of too much fat that some places offer. Walking distance from Hornsby Stations and Westfield Hornsby. There is also a bus stop on the other side of the Station that provides the opportunity...

Don't be quick to judge this Inn. We were attending a conference in Hornsby and chose this place to be close by and avoid all the extra travel to another hotel further away. The staff was extremely kind and they supplied us with juice, milk, toast and little boxes of cereal every day. We stayed two nights and the first...

The Hornsby Inn was great. It is basic pub accommodation. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had all the amenities I needed for a one night stay. The Thai restaurant on site was great.

When reading reviews on this hotel they were mixed but on their website it stated free breakfast, wifi and parking all in a "deluxe" double room. First of all, the "breakfast" was bread in the fridge with packets of condiments plus tea bags and small cereal boxes. Would not like to see the standard room, we had to sit on...

The room was clean and had everything we needed. The hotel was located near the train station which suited us. There was a continental breakfast provided which also was great.

The Hornsby Inn is in an excellent location with the Westfield Shopping Centre right next door. The room was basic but very clean. A continental breakfast was supplied which was also basic but adequate if you wanted a quick breakfast.
