This is not a bad option in a very expensive city.
The village is a pleasant location away from the noise of Newtown streets, but close to restaurants, and about a 10 min walk to the local swimming pool. Lack of air-con is a minus in hot Sydney. There is a games and tv room in a nearby part of the village, which is OK.
It is a bit of a hassle to find reception from Carrillon Avenue - stairs and poor signage - and there is a longish wait as all customers are booked in and taken to their rooms in different parts of the village by the only person at reception.
Although the website says reception is shut after business hours, there was someone available by phone 24 hrs.
