DISGUSTING DO NOT STAY HERE!!! I've seen some sights in my time BUT this one is the WORST! Not clean, cockroaches on everything, kitchen stove never cleaned, tile floor cracked. Should NOT be listed anywhere it IS a health hazard at best.... Free wifi which manager disconnected once he realised we were looking online for a new place to stay.

I love the experience in Carnarvon Lodge. I was able to see how the Aussie Way of living. I was able to see how the home setting in Australia. This a new and great experience for me and this is something money can not buy. The neighborhood of Carnarvon is classy and quiet. But there are some restaurants, bars and...

Cockroaches were running over the double bed and in the bathroom. We tried to overlook this but I woke up to a cockroach on my pillow, then there were more in the shower and some crawling into my suitcase. While this "hotel" was cheap for the area, the conditions were unacceptable (we were paying over $100 per night for our...

It was a last minute booking and it was cheap, the room we booked was the double room. Our room was small but had a double bed, wardrobe, desk, small tv and small fridge. I can't complain besides the size but it wasn't necessarily a problem and it was a decent place to stay for a night. We had a...

Helpful regarding parking and key collection, BUT the lodge smelled terrible, share bathrooms were dirty and with urine on floor. Rooms compact but as booked. We decided after being there for 10 minutes that we just couldn't stay here, the smell, the filthy bathrooms and that then went to the thought of actually how clean the bed linen was! We...

I must admit, I did not not spend a night at Carnarvon Lodge. I booked 2 nights, paid extra for parking, which was already taken. walked into my room, the smell was a cross between really bad air freshner and some kind of fly spray. there were no glasses to have a drink of water, you had to back into...

Staying here will ruin your trip to Sydney. I had a front room and could hear the people next door break wind. There was no hot water in the shower, the room was in poor condition, but no room as the bed filled the room. The cheap price is not worth it. I can't even give it a rating

Upon arriving at the hotel, there was nobody at reception and we had to call a mobile number which we found on a door down the hallway. The hotel manager came down with a bunch of workmen speaking another language and after making us wait a bit longer not knowing what was going on, he told us our room had...
