St Marks Lodge
Ranked #4 of 11 Randwick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Clean, decent sized room but small bathroom. Great value for $79 summer special. Only negative was erratic fan (speeds varied only from hyperspeed to stopped), lack of A/C and limited capacity for opening windows and fresh air flow. If you stay here, get a MultiPass ticket for Bus, train, ferry etc and know where the local buses go to (City-Circular Quay and Central Railway, Bondi Junction etc). Combined with a bit of walking you can have a cheap, enjoyable stay in Sydney based here.

Reviewed 31 January 2012

the rooms are very tiny and there is not a room service every day, so you have to clean up your room by yourself. You also have to bring your rubbish out of the room every day by yourself.
the facilities were all working, but old, everything was as clean as possible.

Really a negative point was the internet connection, which you do have to pay additionally and it is very slow, also it disconnects every few minutes. So you really can only do the most necessary things on the i-net.

To come to the city, you have to take the bus. There are a few different bus stations in avoca street to bondi jn. or on belmont street to central. But this will take you up to 10 min by feet.

It´s not far to coogee beach, but it is so hilly in that region, that walking to bondi takes you at least 10 to 15 min. The better way is to drive with one the buses.

Grocery stores are located inside Royal Randwick Mall in Avoca street, that is 7 to 10 min by walking.

For $80 per night as a summer special it was really a good price for the benefits you get.

St Marks Lodge has 28 rooms. It is about 15 minutes walk to Coogee beach,5 minutes walk to a variety of restaurants and quite close to the Prince of Wales Hospital. The hotel room in which we stayed was clean, quiet and well maintained ($107AUD per night). The room had TV, tea and coffee facilities, a sink and a fridge and an overhead fan (no A/C). There was an opening window (no fly screens). The bathroom was small and narrow with barely enough room to use the wash basin and really not enough room to dry yourself after a shower. There were no hooks or towel rails in the bathroom.

Basic accomodation which suited us well - very clean and well presented. On a quiet street and close to Randwick shopping and restaurants and bus routes into city. We would have been happy to walk to the closest beaches if necessary - only about 20 minutes away. Lovely receptionist who was happy to help with any queries we had. Would definately stay again.
