    Grandpa's 90th”

    We chose the Garden Lodge for it's location and courtyard so we could meet and celebrate my dad's 90th with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The courtyard was a great meeting spot and the location of the hotel made it handy to visit the city and Ashfield. Despite being on busy Parramatta rd, Garden Lodge is quiet and we were not disturbed by traffic noise at all.

    We stay here a lot. It is our go-to place for accommodation in the inner west. We have family in the area who live in very small apartments so when we visit need a hotel. This one is clean, good value and has free secure parking for your car. Laundry is handy for longer visits. We'll be back

    Free parking. great we-fi, good location.

    My second stay at Garden lodge. I would recommend this motel for its location, efficent staff, excellent laundry, fast free wi-fi, free secure parking, comfortable room and bed and quality of the fittings. The carpet in the foyer and on the stairs and hallways isseriously showing it's age though is definitely not a good first impression. I would stay at Garden Lodge again.

    The motel was comfortable enough for son. It is located near to bus stop, 7/11, and train station. The hotel provides free wifi and also guest laundry. On the last day we needed to print our boarding pass and ask the staff to print it and it was free of charge. We really satisfied with our stay and would recommend it for budget stay in sydney.

    Above average”

    Nice large room, but certainly not 'De Luxe' as advertised. I owned and operated a 3+ star motel in NZ and this place was well below that standard. Continental breakfast included was certainly a bonus but the place was let down by the little things that make all the difference. Hairdryer not working, only one toilet roll provided per day unless asked for extras, toilet seat was smaller size than bowl and would not stay up when required, phone in room but you had to go to the office if you needed to use it, ashtray on verandah contained ash when we arrived that was still there when we left after 10 days, rubbish in wardrobe, lack of local knowledge and information available from staff, uncomfortable beds that are past their 'use by' date, bedding also past 'use by' date, updated bathroom but insufficient drainage so floor very wet and dangerous, lack of shelf space in bathroom. Located close to public transport but under flight path for Sydney airport and a lot of road noise.

    It's basically like a motel but a very well kept area. Center breakfast & hang out area well taken care off with beautiful fairy lights view at night. Overall room is OK, just a musty smell that disturb me during the stay. Travel light as you need to carry your luggage up the stairs if you get the 1st floor room!

    Lice”

    We had unit facing main road with small balcony. After sitting reading out there for 2 hours I found I'd been extensively bitten by bird lice on exposed areas of arms and legs. Not much at the time but days later it became a major problem for 2-3 weeks. No such problem on previous visits in units without balconies. Disappointing :-(

    Convenient location not too far from the city centre”

    Located near the city end of Parramatta Road, very close to light rail station, about 5 minutes walk from Summer Hill train station. No nearby dining options, but frequent light rail service got me to Darling Harbour quickly. Free parking was a bonus, around $40/day in Darling Harbour. Room was clean, a little bit cramped, my suitcase was too big for the shelf provided. Was only there for one night, but would be OK for a longer stay. Minor bugbear was table lamps instead of wall mounted, not so good for reading in bed.

    The place is about 5-10minute walk from Summer Hill Station. The room is spacious and well-maintained. They have a large common area where you can enjoy your meal. You can use their microwave, toaster and kitchenware in the said common area. It provides a great ambiance as it's either open roof or the roof is transparent (I'm not sure which is it).

    Could improve further to make it great.”

    The lobby looks simple but warm. The open space breakfast area outside the rooms was really nice with natural light coming in from the glass roof. Some improvement on the furniture could be done in the room to make it look newer, cleaner and fresh, eg the carpet on the luggage rack. It looked very old, with stains and dirty.
