This Hotel is tired.......... It could do with a facelift, and better Wi-Fi had to go out to landing to try and get signal or the front desk even that was poor,... no refreshments facilities,........The room was nice but could do with some fresh air.....quite near the places I wanted to visit after I got my bearings a good walk...

We read the reviews on TripAdvisor after booking - so arrived with dread. But it was nowhere near as bad as some of these reviewers make out. OK, so a bit of a problem getting into the place (because we were not travelling with a mobile) but once in, no problem. Very clean - cleaner than some of the fancy... More

We got a bigger room as was over booked and mistake made. No receptionist and had to phone to get into hotel. Rooms had microwave which didn't work and kettle for making... More

Very bad customer service, very rude, untrained staff, yack smell no cleanness at all. Never thought place in Sydney could be that bad, or worse when I made booking they speak so nicely once booking is done no care, I think staff does not know at all how to provide service and look after guests please never ever book this...

Traveled with adult family. We booked for our last night so we could get back to the airport. The photos online are highly staged or extremely old, as the room that we stayed in was a much dirtier version. You have to ring the bell to get inside the building (or call a number if no one answers apparently). The... More

Our family arrived in Sydney at 9am with heavy suitcases. We rang the hotel to see if they could store our cases until the room was available. The manager instead instead offered us the room immediately, as it had not been rented the night before, at no additional charge. The manager also helped us find secure parking at a reduced... More

Like other people who have posted a review I agree, this place is horrible. We too knew we were paying for budget accomodation and by no means did we expect 'hotel' quality but we DID expect some form of quality. It was DISGUSTING - firstly there were meant to be four people to a room and they only gave us... More

The Holiday Lodge Hotel is THE WORST accommodation experience I have ever had. When we booked the hotel, we understood it was budget accommodation. However, we expected basic requirements such as cleanliness to be met. The venue is disgusting - the carpets are stained, the bathroom walls and soap holder are covered in mould, parts of the carpet are lifted... More
