Quiet stay in Sydney”
Stayed 1 night with 2 month old we requested a cot prior to arriving upon arrival staff at counter said if you really want a cot we can get one its probably not in the room because they are quite heavy to carry to the rooms 👎👎but apparently from that the rooms a great would stay again 👍👍
I was seriously disappointed - the room was spacious and clean, but thats where the positives ended. Compared to the Travelodge which is closer, this really is NOT a hotel. It's on campus accommodation. If it were half the price, it would be a different matter. But it is expensive on-campus rooms. Parking is about 300m away (closer if the building between the 'hotel' and the parking are open) and painful to get to and from when its raining late at night. This is not on my 'put me down for next time' list. I'll stay elsewhere thanks.
Close to Macquarie shopping centre - easy to walk. Lovely views overlooking the lake and the wildlife. Staff were very helpful and changed our room when air conditioner not functioning. Getting a little old, but rooms kept clean and bed comfortable. No pool and the gym is limited.
Well priced. Room well presented.”
Price. Room well presented. View from room overlooking the lake was beautiful. Staff helpful and friendly. Complimentary car parking appreciated. Water leaked from shower, wetting bathroom floor.
The newspaper room with tea and coffee is a great place to relax. Hotel ground is very picturesque. The hotel may consider updating the in room kettle and hair dryer which are very old and worn. Heating was not working. In room temperature hovered around 17/18 degrees in the Australian winter.
We have stayed once before. We are from Interstate--we had family matters to deal with at this time---your location--fees---dining/breakfast facilities, assisted greatly. We must especially mention the kind -interested- lady who runs the office from late afternoons to early evenings. I am sorry, not to be able to quote her name. But--she called us by name when ever we engaged her. An excellent trait. Her assistance is MOST appreciated. We were in an unfamilar Sydney location---here advise with transport is especially, appreciated. A young fellow in the Breakfast area is also to be especially, recognised. The Coffee` machine was not working--the young man sought fresh -hot-coffee`s for us, from an adjoining facility. He was most courtious and attentave. We thank him for his considerations. These are two excellent and valuable front line contact staff, members. We apprecioate their efforts.
When I tried to set air conditioner to 23 rather than 20 was initially told that 20 degrees was the facilities "standard". Problem only solved when manager showed how to increase temperature through tricky push and hold button.
happy stay with green view”
I had stayed just 1 night at this hotel first time and it is so nice to choose this hotel. Breakfast is good! Back yard is huge! Bathroom is enough!
One Nights rest in North Ryde”
We stayed at the MGSM Hotel for one night before driving north. The room itself was fine, bed comfortable and with a nice outlook to fields . We even had a friendly visit to the back door by three well fed, white ducks. The only negatives were that there was no lift to the lower floor so carry luggage was hard, and the car park being over 100 metres away and this was rather awkward for older guests at night.
Convenient, tranquil, fresh air”
Very conveniently located near uni and shops. Free fleshly ground coffee, biscuits and fruit 24/7 Reception 24/7, good service Amazing magical surroundings with Lakeview, beautiful fresh air, i had a ground room and you literally slide the door and step into "Terabithia" :) very beatiful Quiet and clean modern cozy rooms Plenty of secure parking Very comfortable bed and pillows, I felt revived in the morning The bathroom is quite compact, but it didn't really bother me that much
Noisy in the mornings ”
I was saddened to have two bad sleeps whilst at the hotel due to the noise levels of everyone's entrance doors. They are all very loud. The cleaners start early too, so this added to the noise. No sleep in after 7:30am for me :( Room service knocked on our door at 9am on a Saturday Morning whilst getting changed. Too early sorry!!
Stay with my daughter”
I have stayed twice at MGSM now while accompanying my daughter to courses at Macquarie Uni. The accommodation is perfect for this purpose. It is basic in that there's no gym or bar etc, but we don't need those things. The rooms are clean, modern and quiet, with a beautiful natural outlook and it's perfectly situated to access the Uni.
Very great stay”
We drove to Sydney for Easter holiday, the park outside the room is lovely, we spent time there every day. Its about 15 mins drive to city via toll highway so location is excellent. We enjoyed staying there every day, will definitely go back again next time visiting Sydney
Nice place but the location ”
we had a good stay here... check in was smooth. if you dont already know this hotel is part of the university and hence within the university ground. nothing for free not even the water.... sorry carpark was for free :) clean and quite rooms... morden and small.
We had room 203 which overlooked a pond and bush, small balcony and very peaceful considering how close to busy roads. Hotel looking a bit tired with balcony railing rusting out in places, room clean and comfortable. Staff very helpful, good off street parking. Would stay here again.
Very comfortable and rooms are up market compared ”
Excellent stay The only thing that lets the property down is the bland decor of the reception and dining room as they do not reflect the accommodation wings which are rich and well appointed The hotel room bathrooms are a bit small
Very good and quiet”
Had never heard of this one before and was very pleasantly surprised. It is a little bit difficult to see from the road and looks like a conference centre rather than a hotel, but the rooms are very good. Some people have said they are small - I din't notice that, they are not huge but are fine, well-furnished and comfortable. It was very clean. Free wifi and parking. Batteries in tv remote were nearly dead, hardly worth mentioning. Overlooks lawns and a small lake, is very close to parks, walking tracks, bike paths, playing fields, and is in the grounds of Macquarie university. Short walk to Macquarie shopping centre.
Comfortable with modern decor”
The venue was located in comfortable walking distance to a train station which provided easy access to the airport. The interior decor was carefully thought out, pleasing to the eye and comfortable for sleeping, working and relaxing. The outdoor area was easily accessible, spacious and clean. I breakfasted twice on site and was happy with the range and service. I enjoyed one evening meal on site - which was delicious. The fact that the restaurant was not open for Sunday evening or weekend lunch was a minor inconvenience: Macquarie centre was able to fill the gap.
Excellent hotel great service wonderful outlook”
was very impressed with service, staff etc. had to stay an extra at short notice and we were accommodated easily. we had a beautiful outlook over the lake, room very well appointed would definitely recommend. also free parking which is a bonus in sydney
Nice Cosy Hotel located within a university campus”
Stayed here because a client was situated in North Ryde close to the university. Check in was quick and efficient with free Internet access. Rooms were clean and well furnished - very much like a high end university dormitory. There was a gym but it definitely needs to be improved. The restaurant served decent food and was decently priced. There is no food available at night so make sure you have some stored in the room. Overall a good experience. Will definitely return.
A hidden gem”
Went to Sydney on a spur of the moment trip & found all reasonably priced motels were booked out in the city -so looked a bit further out. I came across this Motel offering rooms for low rates so gave it a go. On arrival I found it to be on the grounds of the Macquarie University & it was a bit of a struggle to find reception, so I was abit worried...I shouldn't have been. The actual motel building looks fairly ordinary, although the surrounding grounds are lovely.The room was a complete suprise, although small, it was beautifully appointed with all the mod cons that you could wish for. Pay TV was provided, room service..everything you would expect from a much more expensive motel. We ate dinner in the motel restaurant on the first night. It is a small establishment & the food is first class & very reasonably priced. Try the Thai fish cakes...fantastic. I would recommend this motel to everyone & I will be staying there again for sure.
A business hotel”
Chose MGSM as the location was near to my customer's office. One thing you would notice about this place is that it's not your typical hotel with multi-story rooms. It does look like a motel from afar. But don't be fooled by that - because the rooms are really new and professional looking. If you're looking for a place to say for your business needs, then this is the place to be. Only complain i have is that the check out time is 10am.
Very confortable business acommodation”
It was just one night but I realy enjoy the place. I believe this is a hotel prepared to receive businees people as it is situated in Macquarie Park. But I felt very confortable staying as a turist. It was one of the feel available options for that night as it was public holiday but despite the distance the hotel was perfect.
Unfriendly staff and lack of facility.”
Checkout at 10am... really? Restaurant open at 12pm for lunch means NO breakfast. Far from shops and public transport. NO smile from staff, just pure bitterness, feels like they don't want to be there.
Nice place, serene, clean just a bit far from Central Sydney”
We booked MGSM not knowing its actually the in-campus accommodation for Macquarie's University's Graduate School of Management. Took the train from the airport down, while the journey was enjoyable.. I would say the distance isn't ideal. Took us a good 2h to reach the hotel, not counting the long walk with our luggage through the uni campus. The McQ mall has ample amenities for you to shop and eat & even catch a film. The staff is courteous and room services are excellent. Be sure to leave early (min 3 hrs ahead of time) if you plan to commute via train back to the airport!
More like a fancy hostel!”
Our original room stunk of cigarette smoke so bad that we had to go ask reception if they could move us. The staff were great to deal with and nothing was a drama. The new room was better but they’re so outdated. If you get the breakfast included it makes the value per night more reasonable.
Good clean room close to big shopping mall Macquarie shopping centre, reception friendly got late check out .. thank you.
Great service and clean rooms, the location wasn't central but close to a major shopping centre.
Love this place and its view”
2nd time I stayed with MGSM hotel and I'll surely return. Though I'd recommend an overall renovation as the place is getting a bit old. Love the view within the university though.
Greatest place for value ”
Great place to hide and enjoy a weekend away.
Great location, spacious rooms & value for money”
convenient location good rooms the buffet breakfast was over cooked cold and expensive, only used once .
MGSM suited us nicely because we were visiting Macquarie University -- right next door. The facilities are standard rather than luxe, but the price was right and the room was comfortable.
Spur of the Moment trip”
Great hotel, best location, easy walk to shops and no problem access to freeways.
Nice hotel, but need improvement on services”
Around 30 mins drive from Sydney CBD, location still ok as it's accessible to M2. Price is reasonable. But hook in the toilet should be added and housekeeping service should improve, ever though the cleanliness is good. The hotel should itemise the mini bar properly, spring water is not considered as soft drink. Other hotels do not classify as this.
Lovely outlook, tired room. ”
Stayed here on a weekend night which was very cheap. Lovely aspect to the lawn and lake at Macquarie Uni. Room (214) was comfortable, however - balcony door was very stiff, fly screen did not close properly so bugs came in, shower leaked profusely and ceiling lights in bathroom had a faulty connection and flickered on and off. One drinking glass in the bathroom was also broken (in the paper bag it was presented in) which was hazardous. Tea cups and spoons were also not very clean. Curtains need replacing - were very stained. Otherwise, a pleasant stay.
I was with my sister-the desk staff gave us no indication of the cost of breakfast also there was nobody to ask until we were almost finished our breakfast, when a staff member asked us what our room no. was. I was very surprised that a cup of coffee and a small dish of fruit cost $25. We are senior aged.
MGSM - Affordable 4star”
The check in started on the wrong foot with a receptionist who had no interest that someone wanted to stay at her hotel. From there things got much better. The room was very comfortable and well maintained.
In the first room I was placed all power went down early in the first morning. Plus, there was no hot water in the shower. In the second room in which I was placed, the air conditioning/heater unit could only be adjusted to either off or full on. Full on was too hot! If adjusted to a lower setting the unit's engine noise was so loud I could not sleep!! I was told by a member of the staff that rooms had been 'face lifted' but not the equipment
A Nice Campus-Owned Hotel with Nature Blend”
It was a pleasant stay. We got our bags secured in the hotel's library during our check out time before we depart to the airport. Although it is a public place, we found that it was a secure place. The room is notging sophisticated, but all the facilities worked well. A renowned Macquarie Mall is a walk-distance away from the hotel too, so we did not have any troubles finding food during our stay.
Adequate Small Rooms”
Didn't know it was a student hotel, though no problem with that. However, they really do need better management here (obviously Macquarie School of Management is up to the task). There was typically no one at the front desk, and the staff that did bother to help didn't seem to have much of a hospitality outlook. One good point was a coffee maker (which made coffee fresh from beans), but that went uncleaned for two days and didn't work properly. It nice to be on campus, and the view from the small balcony was fine. The rooms had what you need, but are very small, tiny bathrooms, and a difficult squeeze for two people. Better for singles.
The hotel room is facing the green and a fountain that made our stay very peaceful and quiet. The hotel provides all the necessary equipment and facilities that are required. The location is convenient if guests hire their own car and there are plenty of parking spaces. Receptionists are gentle and efficient. They provide good service.

Spacious room. Walking distance to Macquarie University hospital. Value for money.
Great value; great location; beautiful setting.
Check-in: quick and easy. Twin room: clean, enough space for 1 person, basic facilities inside the room. My room was facing the lake - amazing view when I woke up in the morning.
We thought it a great secret hideaway as it is in a lovely area overlooking the grasslands of the university and a great big pond with ducks etc.”
The restaurant was good value and the breakfast also. We certainly enjoyed our stay and went shopping in the centre up the way.
A great find”
We will come back on our next visit. Good location and surrounds.
Our stay was excellent. the staff were very good. Always ready to help if needed, and very polite. The rooms are very comfortable.
