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 beds are riddled with bed bugs, there were old cigarette butts and dirty tissues on the floor in our room. the lady who runs the place was unhelpful, dismissive and rude at the best of times. 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

Usually i'm not one to complain however, HOLIDAY LODGE was a waste of my money. the owner was one of the rudest hotel owners i have ever met and i do a lot of travelling. 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

We stayed at the Holiday Lodge from March 3rd-6th. We were advised when we first got there that there had been a plumbing leak on one of the floors and we may have to be sent to another place. It was being resolved and we could elect to leave our bags there and come back later or we could wait.... More

We much needed a break, and were looking for a hotel where we didnt have to spend all our money on accomdation. Admittedly we picked the wrong weekend (Mardi Gra), which we didnt know was on until after we arrived. I did wonder why there was not much in the way of accomdation, and why all the prices were ramped... More

without doubt the worst place i have ever stayed. we were going to stay 3 nights,could only stomach 1. 2 days after leaving we were charged for another night . do not hand over your credit card until you are sure you want to stay in an untidy dingy room.the place is a dump and not that cheap.
