I stayed at there back in June, after holidaying in Thailand. I booked a single room, they gave me a tiny bed double bunk bed room. the mattress was harder than concrete, my back was aching. One chair i sat on collapsed and i hit my head. The heater i was using was about to blow up, they replaced that... More

I can't believe that Carnarvon Lodge is still in operation. Following my stay here I reported them to the Health Department NSW for various health and safety infringements: smoking in all parts of hotel, including common areas; signs in bathrooms warning not to open door or it may set off a fire alarm and cause fire brigade to attend premises...

The room we had was dirty from the previous stay. Looked like all they had done was change the sheets. There were holes in the walls, the tap in the ensuite was falling off, one of the blinds was attached with masking tape and half the power points didn't work. Overall a rubbish place to stay and very over priced.... More

Air con leaked water all over the entire floor. As others have said, everything about this place is horrible. Simply just don't come here. Fork out a tad more cash for something a lot better. The only slightly positive about it is the location. Nice area and close to the train station.

Booked this place for a family trip to Sydney - didn't have high expectations - all we wanted was something clean and basic - would be out all day anyway. Where do I start? How can you go wrong with clean and basic? My daughter slept in a bunk bed and there was a window over it with a large... More

Disgusting. The room smelt bad and I found out at 1am why - the mattress I was sleeping on was blood soaked and wrapped in plastic. It stunk like a used tampon rotting. I slept with my head out the window and on top of all the bed linen desperately trying to not breathe. I am sure this is illegal... More

The owner Anthony looked confused that we were staying there, took my id into his office, shut the door n finally came back n showed us to our... More

We booked and paid for a dbl ensuite room with The Carnarvon Lodge 3 weeks before. On arrival we knew straight away all was not as it seemed in the pictures we had seen on the internet, apart from smelling bad the place looked dirty and messy.The owner Anthony had a blank look on his face when we said we...

I stayed at the Carnarvon Lodge for 2 nights.I first noticed that the common room at the reception was quite messy and even unclean, but I didn't worry too much. But on the following morning I woke up with a few mosquitoes bites- that's what I thought- and on the second morning my body was covered with dozens of huge,... More

So as it was our first ever holiday away from home my friend and I were looking for some cheap accommodation. On arrival we had to wait a while for someone to greet us. We had made a phone call before booking the room confirming that we could get a room with 2 singles and a private bathroom which in... More
