In all honesty, my experiences at the Holiday Lodge Hotel in Potts Point has not only left me disgusted and repulsed, i have been scarred for life. Utter filth! And im not just talking about whats behind the reception desk. The lady at reception named SALLY was ghastly and unprofessional to say the very least. We were asked to leave... More

This place is disgusting. The workers are so dodgy and will steal your money. I cannot even describe how unproffesional they are. It is dirty, smelly and should be knocked down. i would rather stay in a jail cell! i was disgusted and strongly recommend for no one to stay there otherwise you will be extremely disappointed.

Everything about this experience was negative. The staff were incompetent. Despite paying for specific bedding requirements, the staff presented a quaint bunk bed and trundle bed configuration which was exactly the point of my paying an additional cost, which was not refunded. There was no tv reception. This "hotel" was the worst, most delapidated, ramshackled, eye-sore I have ever had... More

The television did not work. there are termites that have eaten away the majority of the skirting board around the room the sheets... More

We stayed there during our world trip back in January. The owners were very accomodating when we missed our flight and we had to delay our arrival for one day. The hotel itself is ok. It is very hot, they don't have any AC. If you can try to get a room on the street side, yes it is a... More

Hostel prices in Sydney are pretty steep, with many of them focused around Kings Cross. If you are travelling with one other person And prefer private/twin rooms, then this might be the accommodation for you. It will cost you roughly the same price as a 2 person room in a hostel, but it is quieter and you will have your... More

Lady on reception took a long time to answer the door, and there had been a mix up with our room. Room was terrible, marks on the blanket, the decor hadnt been updated for many years so looked very tired. The mirror had been leant up against the wall, and the tv was the old school type with push buttons.... More

Being a group of 4 we were very considerate for others around us by leaving at 8pm (which is a reasonable time for any noise... More

My partner and I booked this via the internet - the photo looked fine. We were not looking for 5 star accomodation just a clean, comfortable room with bathroom facilities ( which we requested) On arrival I couldn't believe my eyes!! The hotel was extremely tired and wasn't even clean!! The carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in weeks!!... More
