Stayed here on business. Was upgraded to a lovely room with a covered balcony at the front of the house. Bed was really comfortable and room was clean and had everything I needed. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Walking distance to restaurants and cafes. Would happily stay again if the opportunity arose.

Such a great location! A quiet and pretty street away from the hustle and bustle of the business area, yet a short and easy walk to the North Sydney train station/Greenwood shopping centre. Also a reasonable taxi fare from the city back home at night. We were lucky enough to step out the front of the hotel on the first...

What a find! Fabulous location in north sydney with the ambience of a grand bed and breakfast. Gorgeous rooms with a guest sitting area where you find complementary port: nice touch! I almost forgot I'm on a business trip! I'll be back!

This is an older property, similar to a guest house, very conveniently located in Nth Sydney. We stayed three nights in a larger room and took advantage of the free parking underneath the building. Rooms were older style but not tired or worn. They are well equipped and very clean. Bathroom was a little small and dated but certainly no...

We usually stay at modern hotels but whilst in Sydney for the Vivid festival we chose to stay away from town at North Sydney in this wonderful old hotel. From the moment we walked in and met the really friendly desk guy we knew our stay would be relaxing. The room was big enough with all mod cons but with...

Our first visit to this small hotel. A converted old house into a very good and very stylish hotel. The room was spacious and the bed was very very comfortable. Slept soundly, which is unusual for me with hotel beds. The only downside was the shower cubicle. I will give a minus 2. Plenty of room in the bathroom and...

Thanks for your review, we were happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Please call us direct if you wish to stay again. We'd love to show you room #27, which has an absurdly over-sized bathroom/shower compared to the other rooms :) Kind Regards Billy

McLaren Hotel is a lovely hotel in North Sydney. It has free parking and is located close to public transport. Room was large and bed was very comfortable. The building was gorgeous and staff very friendly. I would recommend this hotel, its close to the city but not in the city so no traffic problems.
