  • Situated in the heart of North Sydney, this chapel is a beautiful place of peace and quiet. Unfortunately due to Covid the museum wasn’t open but you can see the final resting place of Australia’s...  more »
  • An oasis where all are unconditionally welcome. Hospitality only possible when making a profit is not your primary motive.  more »
  • We're a regular visitor of this place particularly the chapel where Australia's first saint, St.Mary Mackillop is entombed. A beautiful place of worship and for reflecting on life's ups and downs. We....  more »
  • The place is Calm, peaceful and so serene, amid the business and bustle of a big city. We had our AoS Conference here and the place was amazing. I love the Chapel. The room was perfect, spacious, clean and quiet. Food was beautiful. The people were all friendly and helpful. I’d like to go back and would definitely recommend to my family and friends.
  • This is amazing place such a calm welcoming place in North Sydney. The Church is calm and welcoming with the tomb of St. Mary MacKillop witj daily mass. The museum is insiteful and well laid out documenting the history and foundation of the Sister of St. Joseph. The cafe and shop is a nice relaxing atmosphere with a number of items for sale. The Anderledy Lodge is comfortable, clea with great staff and good breakfast. Such an amazing place to stay.
  • Stayed here over the June long weekend, lovely quiet place within easy walking distance of North Sydney station. Great breakfast in the dining room near reception, very comfy beds and clean bathroom.
  • Had items stolen from the room I had been staying at Mary Mackillop place 4 days a week, every week, for the past 4 month's and had ongoing bookings well into the future (1+ year). Everything was going fine until today i had items stolen from my room, i was working from the room that day and had money and other valuables sitting on my side table, i wanted a smoke so i placed the do not disturb sign on the door and went downstairs and outside (as they don't allow smoking on premise) -- i was gone for all of 2 minutes. When i came back upstairs to my room the cleaner was near my door and very nervously uttered a hello to me, after closing the door i noticed that my bed was made and things had been moved, there was money missing and 2 items had been taken!! I quickly went outside my room to confront the cleaner and found that she had moved all the way down the hallway into the end storage room and was down on her knee's when i got there, i asked her what she was doing (i presume stashing the money and goods) but she didn't answer me, i told her that i wasn't stupid and i wanted it back, to which she overacted the "i didn't take it see my pockets are empty" routine -- suffice to say that i have contacted the police, and immediately checked out and cancelled all of my future bookings. Completely untrustworthy!
  • Excellent !! Highly recommend this accomodation. Very good value !
