Bad experience

Bad hotel. Hotel was renovating so they give us free complimentary breakfast. Guess what- breakfast with bread coffee tea or juice and they charge $8 for that. Can't believe it. It far from north Sydney station and you have to walk a slope far enough to reach the hotel. It will be gd if you are drinking.

Nice hotel in a nice quiet street

All good except my room, No 2, is situated next to a very noisy piece of machinery that kept switching on and off all night, and most times it started operating, it would me up. Not good

Great work location

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful; overall the stay was very good value in a very well-maintained character-filled federation-style building with ready internal access to parking, comfortable breakfast area and good facilities. Will stay again.

Cosy little place in North Sydney

I really like the Mc Lauren. It's a pleasant walk from North Sydney Station, it's close to the shopping area, the staff are lovely and it meets all of my requirements.

If you want something with more Charm & Personality

If you like a place to stay that has more personality & warmth than the usual big brand hotels I think the Mclaren Hotel is perfect. Lovely old building , beautifuly presented and clean, friendly staff - my room was spacious and comfortable - it was a deluxe on the ground floor so it also had a small balcony/verandah which was good. Location would be good for business people or if you have a specific reason to be in the North sydney area - which I did - otherwise the suburb is a bit dead over the weekends - I would return .
