I stayed at this place for a visit at UNSW, which is within 10 minute walking distance. The room I had was rather cheap for Sydney standards, probably as cheap as it gets unless you stay in a hostel. It is better suited for short term stays, as there is no daily room service and the room is very small.... More

I have stayed at High Cross Park Lodge between 50 and 60 night a year for the past three years. Julie and her team are excellent to deal with. The location is ideal and it is very good value for money. Most of my stays have been work related but some for leisure also. It is close enough to walk... More

I was in a single room with a clean private bathroom. A hair dryer can be available upon request. There was a kitchenette with a sink and a fridge. TV. Air conditioner. It didn't seem to have any heater and it was quiet cold in june. WiFi was limited. Nice staff.

Excellent dinner options, being just a short stroll from The Spot and its choice of restaurants, or even a counter meal in the pub on the corner. Easy access to the city centre, with frequent buses going down the nearby main street to Circular Quay, or a good walk down to Coogee Beach. Despite Cuthill Street being very busy, our... More

Stayed 2 nights. Tiny room, had to request a service & new towels and they would not do the service. Mouldy bathroom, mirror too high for average person and with inadequate ventilation, Fridge smelt like there was something dead in it. Rooms in serious need of remodeling. Definitely would not stay here ever again. Initially I was happy just to... More

The lodge was quiet, apart from ambulance sirens throughout the evening. The room was not large but was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was adequate and clean with plenty of hot water. The TV was hard to watch as it was too small and high on the wall so I gave up trying to watch it.... More

My partner needed last minute surgery at Prince of Wales hospital. This accomodation is a 5 minute walk to the hospital and my room, even though it's modest in size, is clean and comfortable. I wouldn't recommend it for a 2 week holiday, but certainly fantastic for a couple of nights stay. Olena was very helpful on the phone and... More

This is a quiet old building with a selection of different-sized rooms located next to the Royal Hotel. Nothing fancy, but you don't expect fancy for around AUD100 a night. The reception isn't always open - no doubt to keep down costs - but the staff are very polite and helpful. They fixed me up with a phone charger during... More
