My husband and I stayed two nights at this lodge. Beds were reasonable and clean. The bathroom/shower was not as clean as I would have liked however, nothing is perfect. Cleanliness was mentioned to staff upon checkout. It is only a 3 minute walk over to Women's Hospital Randwick and the shops, cinema and a multitude of eateries were also...

This is a budget lodge. It is very basic. We (three adults) spend 6 days in the lodge. Rooms are not serviced daily. Lodge staff work limited hours. The bathroom was very large. The air conditioner worked very well. It's in a great location; one block from Randwick City. There is a common kitchen.

I stayed here recently and was extremely pleased with the place. The lady on reception was very helpful, and she went out of her way to give me advice and help. My room was spotlessly clean, and perfectly adequate for my needs. Also mini fridge cutlery and crockery plus tea and coffee making facilities. Great value for money, would highly...

Room was clean and tidy and a large bathroom. Adequate for a quick overnight stay as had to be at the hospital the next morning. Had to park quite a way and so had to do a few trips with all the baby gear.

I stayed here last week with my friend as her son was born 9 weeks premature and had a small set back and was transferred to Royal Randwick Women's Hospital. The location of the hotel was extremely convenient as it was directly across the road. The hotel itself wasn't the cleanest. You had to get your own fresh towels each...

Rooms clean and surprisingly modern inside. Good communal kitchen always clean. So close to the hospital that I was able to easily visit my wife whenever I felt like a short walk. Single room quite small but adequate for my needs. Efficient friendly staff. Rather ordinary outside appearance and entrance. Budget but comfortable.

accommodation is very convenient to Prince of Wales Hospital, also local buses that will take you to beach, city, or Mascot railway station. Local cafes very good, and good coffee. Is on main road, so ear plugs are handy.

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...
