4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Not fancy but met my needs for a place close to Coogee. Room had everything I needed, for a two night stay. Very good rates for the location. Only negative was finding a parking space when I arrived back later in the evening. Would stay here again

Reading some of the reviews, I got a bit worried, but in the end we had a great stay here. We asked for an upper floor room at the front, facing the road and got it. There were loads of birds to see from the window and in the evening hundreds of bats flying home to roost. We just laid on the bed and watched it all - it's amazing, but coming from the UK you don't expect it to be like that! It's quite easy to catch the bus from here into the city - there are 3 or 4 various routes dotted around the area. Central Randwick is only a 10 minute walk away with some great cheap restaurants which made a nice change from eating out in the city. Our room was ideal, with a sink and fridge, plus en-suite bathroom. We went in summer, but didn't get too hot - it was fairly cool in the evenings and even with the windows open there weren't many insects at all like I had expected there to be. I miss Sydney and want to be back!

Fortunately my wife and I chose to stay here, our priorities were a comfortable room with on suite shower.Minimal cooking facilities,peaceful.economical.
I got all my requirements.We were exploring Sydney and required flexible times leaving and entry,Just a light breakfast.Sheets on the large double bed were changed every two days along with a room clean. The costs and standards were excellent. The location was idea. 6 min walk to Buses, and slightly longer to Randwick shopping area with plenty of shops and more than enough places to eat.
It was a quite area with the occasional car passing.The windows were always open. the view from the window were to a large tree across the other side of the road.
Great and thank you St Mark's lodge

A nice little place to spend a few days away from the city. Easy to get a bus into town (20 mins) and plenty of decent shops/restaurants nearby. Our double room upstairs was good with cooking facilities, fridge,wardrobe, nice bathroom and ceiling fan. We were there when it was very hot and we had the window open and fan on and it kept room cooler, slept fine.
Could do with safety deposit boxes or a room safe.

Recently stayed here, bit out of town but reasonably priced.
Room was ok but bit dated. Short walk into town you will find a variety of shops and a pub.
Smoking area out the back was rarely cleaned with overflowing ashtrays and empty bottles left there.

Smallish single room with ensuite. Neat, clean and tidy, bed comfortable. Room got a bit hot though and didn't have A/C only a fan (which I didn't use as was a bit noisy for me). Bar fridge in room made a buzzing noise the whole time, apart from that was good.
Stayed one night, was good for that but not for more nights.

St. Marks Lodge very kindly posted my dental plate and luggage tag that I had left behind in my room.

Room Tip: Choose a room that has A/C in it

The staff are friendly, the rooms are neat and clean. The Lodge is situated in a quiet street, away from the heavy traffic at Randwick.

For the price you generally pay in Sydney, this Lodge is a pretty nice comfy place and offers good value.
