“I never thought I’d fall in love with a hotel! 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 was very clean, bed was stupidly comfortable. I literally do not have one bad thing to say. Great value for money considering other options in the area – would definitely stay again.


The Tara Suite

The Tara suite is the perfect indulgence to celebrate a special occasion – ideal for a romantic evening to celebrate a wedding, birthday or anniversary, or just an excuse to “spoil yourselves”.

“A 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 location. Recommend!


Centrally located for business

“I usually stay at nearby Rydges but at a hundred dollars less and a much larger room in a historic old home, I’ll always come back to The McLaren. All the facilities you’d expect from a business hotel but cosy atmosphere and much more personal feel.”

“The McLaren is my Sydney home. I’ve been staying here for 10 years and it is my home away from home. Friendly, well located near loads of restaurants, and easily affordable. They also have a small room at the front that lends itself well to small format functions.


Hop on a train or bus to the city

For shopping pleasure, Sydney’s city centre is enticing with grand and elegant shopping destinations showcasing all the famous international brands.

Built in the 1890s and beautifully restored in the 1980s, the Queen Victoria Building’s three levels are devoted to fashion, jewellery and gifts as well as cafes and restaurants. Why not start with high tea in the palatial Tea Room QVB?

Chic in the City Tours is a fashion walking or chauffeured shopping experience to bring you the inside track on Sydney’s best-kept shopping secrets.

As a Business owner when we get away we like to look for a quiet,relaxing and welcoming places to stay. The McLaren was this and more. The bed was comfortable and gave a great night sleep. The bathroom and other amenities were more than satisfying. It’s also close to public transport and we were able to have a wonderful and relaxing weekend with no hassles. I can recommend The McLaren.


Close to Mater Hospital and North Shore Hospital

“We were attending a wedding in North Sydney. 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. I would highly recommend The McLaren to stay even if you’re going to the city as there is plenty of transport in close proximity.
