I found this Lodge to be better than I thought.... The beds were comfy the room a great size... the ensuite was massive but the shower was really small (that didn't make sense). Defiantly would stay here again. The only downside was trying to find a car park... This was very very frustrating... took us half an hour to find...

Being a pensioner and having your husband admitted to hospital for a major operation I found this lodge a blessing. So close and all you need with a share kitchen which meant you were able to cook your own meals. Rooms very clean and tidy with all you want. I actually stayed there over 8 nights during the months.

We booked this Avoca Lodge online and having not stayed here before we thought it a good choice whilst visiting family who live nearby. On our arrival at this Lodge there was no one to greet us. Just a notice on the Reception Desk stating your key to your room is in the envelope below. On entering our room we...

I foolishly read the reviews for this accommodation the day before I arrived, which really stressed me out! No spiders, no cobwebs. Carpet looks old but is ok. Mattress seemed a bit wonky but then I had the best night's sleep in ages! Peaceful if your room is set back from the street. No noisy neighbours. Nice clean renovated bathroom....

Not expensive. The hotel do not have things that normal hotels provide. However, if you do not expect such a full service, it is fairly good for the price. Located near NSWU. The room is small with shower but neat and satisfactory. The woman is friendly and accurate who seems to be only staff playing both roles of a receptionist...

Enjoyed my stay here! Parking around the corner was easy, close to food, easy to get a taxi from. Only complaint was that the walls were very thing and there were people talking at like 6am that I couldn't sleep through!

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! It was a shame about the noisy neighbours. Hopefully we can help you with accommodation when next you visit Randwick.

The logde is over priced. The room size was small and upkeep was poor. Flooring would creak when you walked around. There were cobwebs in the stairway. The location was good..which was the only bonus. Parking can be nightmare.

This establishment closes up at night, is dark (only one dim bulb inside and no lights outside), is reached only by a walkway from an alley past trash cans, has no staff on site after 7 p.m. (and may not have staff on site ever), makes no provisions for assistance (or for emergencies), and offers no parking. It is surrounded...

Thank you for your review. We advertise that our reception hours are 8am to 7pm daily. Also on each booking there is a note asking you to contact the lodge if you are arriving after 7pm for instructions for key collection. There are 24hour contactable emergency phone numbers on the outside door and the reception door. The lighting is bright...

Horrible dirty hotel, scandalous staff! There is a elderly European receptionist refered as susi with highlighted hair wearing shorts and t shirts with very rude behavior. I believe she was drunk, at least I could smell strong alcohol when she spoke to me with her heavy accent. The room is very smelly with cigarette smoke. There is no wifi. The...

This is a disappointing review from a guest who booked a non-refundable room and tried unsuccessfully to cancel and be refunded prior to arrival. It will alert others to select a suitable cancellation policy when they book accommodation and honor that choice with some dignity.

Perfect location which suited my purpose of staying one night to be close to my family who were residing in Coogee. It was a single room with a shower and cupboards, very basic accommodation but clean and the receptionist most helpful and friendly. She provided me with towels and allowed me to stay on the ground floor because my case...
