We only had one night at Medusa but it was very comfortable indeed. Very spacious room, very comfortable bed, lovely hot water and quiet. Clean with a tiny but good space for heating up a meal. Comfy occasional chairs and a large tv. Excellent area for a stay in Sydney. We had a top floor room which was quite a climb for older folk! Excellent reception. A great stay for us.

For the price we paid we expected more than a tiny bathroom with shower curtain. The only common area in the hotel closed at 5pm and the outdoor garden was not existent. We were informed a day before our stay that the outdoor area had been damaged so we can use it, but this is the reason we booked this hotel. It felt more of a upmarket motel to be honest.

Hi Carmen, It was a pleasure to host you at Medusa Hotel and hopefully you think of our privately owned boutique hotel as a home away from home. We hope to welcome you back to Medusa in the future.

Loved the location, and the very friendly staff. The room was nice. Downside is parking as there is only one space for 18 rooms. We ended up using one of the Wilson parkings in the area, which worked out OK for us.
