After reading others reviews I was a little worried but the lodge was gorgeous. Beautiful high ceilings, it was clean, the bed was comfortable, the room was warm, the bathroom was clean and shower was great. It was quiet. I was able to park straight across the road. The location was brilliant. We were only there overnight for my daughter...

Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and would welcome you back anytime. Obviously High Cross Park Lodge ticked all the boxes for you. Most guests think its special and well located near the University of New South Wales, the Prince of Wales Hospital complex, Coogee Beach and 'The Spot' - bars and restaurants....

The "free parking" is a lie; there are 3 parking spots for 27 rooms, and the hotel uses them, too. When we left our car in the parking lot for a few days and went to Uluru, they towed our car, confiscated all our stuff, and changed the lock on our door, leaving us stranded when we returned. (Our room...

Thank you for your review. It was with regret we had no alternative than to have your cat towed. You had removed a barrier to park and when you were asked to move you refused. Consequently your booking was cancelled as your behavior was inappropriate for our staff and other guests. We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your holiday.

The hostess is super unfriendly and lucky for me and my friend something went wrong with our booking so that we were able to get a refund. I would never want to sleep there! When I came in after a misunderstanding about parking the car, she literally told me that my problem was the fact that I couldn't hear. If...

Hi! I have just come from my stay at High Cross Park Lodge and will it was nice, there were a few things that made the trip a little unpleasant. The room was nice as was the bathroom.

My girlfriend and I went to Randwick for her to get surgery at a nearby hospital. We booked at High Cross Park Lodge because it was really close and affordable. When we got there, the room was filthy. There was old food on the floor and stains and dust everywhere and even ants. We did not want to deal with...

Back again for another stay at High Cross, once again staying for a few nights whilst my wife was in Prince of Wales Hospital. Exactly what I needed for a home base to stay in whilst walking over the road to the hospital each day. Nothing flashy but nice and clean with a recently? renovated bathroom.

Thank you for your review. Our double rooms are quite small and we advertise them as small doubles so peoples expectations are met. We also advertise limited parking however there are many unrestricted parking bays in the area within close proximity to the lodge. We do apologize if there were marks on the floor and next time please advise reception...

We were very happy with our stay at the high Cross Park Lodge. It was very comfortable, clean and when we asked for extra wi-fi and late check out it was given at no extra cost due to my membership with SydneyLodges. The only thing I would say that could be a slight problem was the shower in room 208....

Thank you for your review. We have noted your comments regarding the bathroom and appreciate your feedback. We're glad you liked 'The Spot' with a huge variety of restaurants, bars and cinema. This is one of our most popular rooms and hopefully it will be available when next you need accommodation in Randwick. We look forward to welcoming you back.

I received an (automated?) email asking that I leave feedback on Trip Advisor.
