McLaren Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Attending a wedding in North Sydney and my wife has stayed here before so we booked three rooms. I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms, off street parking and the friendly staff. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very quiet during the night. There is a School next door so weekdays carries the normal amount of noise that one should anticipate. We went out for breakfast but the continental one at the hotel looked very appealing for only $8 each. Would highly recommend this place to stay even if your staying in the city as there is plenty of transport in close proximity. In conclusion friendly, clean, comfortable and all at a reasonable price.

Stayed for a few nights to attend a nearby function in North Sydney. This hotel is just great. Convenient location, plenty of restaurants around, or they offer order -in or simple snacks prepared in minutes. Breakfast was good. Staff were super friendly and obliging, rooms were a good size and very clean and comfortable, we had a King room. Surprising the number of rooms for a small street front. Other friends who stayed here also enjoyed the stay.

Overall rating-- good hotel Location -- It is next to Berry street in North Sydney where most of the offices are situated. its a converted house into a Guest house Price- on the higher side but most of sydney hotels are expensive Comfort - bed was queen side and comfortable Room - Rooms are smaller in size. Had taken only room Service & Facilities- Had not used much services but room was clean and checkin quick. Breakfast on cold American style Try to get in early in evening otherwise carry the main entrance keys

Totally what we expected from our research ahead. the sound proof of the room was not great but we were able to have a good night sleep. great customer service, the manager helped me take my things up, we were able to leave our stuff with them after check out for 6+hours breakfast was not hot breakfast, but we were in a rush so did not check properly

Great business hotel for overnight stays in central location. In room breakfast dining, close to popular cafes and transport. Comfy beds, well maintained and clean.Courteous, helpful manager. Quiet considering location. Recommend!

Parking onsite, friendly check-in, an upgrade as the Hotel was not as busy on Boxing night definitely gets this hotel our vote as an alternative to city establishments. We had a large room with the comfiest bed and all the basics one requires. A charming and atmospheric conversion of a large home of yesteryear into this private hotel , we will definitely be staying here again.

The staff at the McLaren Hotel were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The room was spacious but the bathroom was a bit small. Overall, the hotel had a cozy, personal atmosphere and was a lovely place to stay.

From check in to check out, staying here was an absolute pleasure. The gentleman on the front desk was lovely, the room was large and tidy. The wallpaper made me want to stay forever. Bathroom very clean, could smell the disinfectant when I came back after cleaning. Bed was stupidly comfortable. Literally do not have one bad thing to say. Great value for money considering other options in the area, would definitely stay again.

We booked three nights over the weekend at the McLaren Hotel because the other hotels in North Sydney were too expensive. Our cost per night was $160 in a Kingsize room. It was a really pleasant experience! More like a spacious B&B so more personal than a large hotel. Rooms very spacious, clean and bed very comfortable. Upstairs rooms have lots of light with opening windows and screens! there's air con if you want it. Continental breakfast is available for $8 which includes excellent coffee from a DeLongue coffee machine! Coffee and tea making facilities in all rooms as well as a lounge with sherry and port and sweets at the front counter. We wont go past the Mclaren Hotel if staying in North Sydney or the CBD as there's a train station at North Sydney.

A great place to stay, so close to the city but far enough away to be peaceful. Also very affordable with a very reasonably priced breakfast. North Sydney railway station is a short walk away as are several restaurants and shops.
