Springfield Lodge
Ranked #9 of 58 Sydney B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 14, 2011

I had booked this hotel for 8 nights (7th to 15th) and after reading some of the reviews I was worried. I need not have been. So here are some facts: the location is fantastic, the rooms clean, small but quite adequate, bathrooms very small but ok, internet ok and no A/C but a fan (this could be a problem at the hight of summer). This place is a great value for money. I do not quite understand a number of people who have reviewed this hotel and who seem to be under the impression that they are entitled to Hilton standards for less than $100 a night. For the price that they charge it is better than many other hotels in that category and the room size is perfectly adequate and functional. The bathrooms could do with extra shelves but again they are quite ok. I have never found the staff unfriendly. My only reservation would be to book at the hight of the summer. I will stay there again in a hartbeat.

Stayed at the Lodge for my 6th time and truly enjoyed being in the middle of the action for a fun night out at the Cross.
The restaurant downstairs serves lovely food and the staff at the reception is simply wonderful, making your stay the best possible with the choice of rooms and arrangements.
One can't do much about noisy guests at night, but the carpets in the hallway are doing their best to quieten the disturbance.
With rooms that comfortable, it does not matter too much if the outlook might be just across to the next building.
All in all, a little gem, I will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back enjoy a better view

Stayed at Springfield Lodge for 1 night on return from holiday in Fiji. The room was small but very clean. Enjoyed the complimentary foxtel.
Location is very central and walking distance to many attractions.
Restaurant "petrol" on premises served good quality food and coffee.
It was a nice bonus to be able to leave our baggage at the hotel while we did some sight seeing before our flight home.

My boyfriend and I found this room to be much more comfortable than we'd expected from the extremely reasonable price of the room. We stayed five nights at Springfield Lodge, and were very pleased with the room throughout (which was serviced twice). The location was fantastic for proximity to the city, and we utilised the hotel kitchen and laundry on several occasions. The hotel kitchen was home to some creepy-crawlies, but the facilities were very useful.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel for those in search of sleep on the weekends, as the nightlife of the street over is extra loud on Friday and Saturday nights, and woke us up several times. During the week, however, it was fine. Like I said, it was so close to everything we needed, and the cafes and restaurants in the area were a delight.

We were looking for a modestly priced hotel within walking distance to the main sights in Sydney and the Springfield fit the bill. It wasn't fancy but the staff was friendly and the room was adequate. We arrived early and were allowed to leave our luggage in a storage room. We walked to Hyde Park and then down to the Opera House. It was a good walk but cabs, bus and the train was available. We returned and checked in to a small and very warm room. There was a good overhead fan but if it was summer, it might have been tough. We ate dinner at the Sugar Mill, just across the street and were delighted with a $10 steak dinner, which is not the norm in Sydney. The restaurant was jammed which was a good sign. We stayed for three nights and found it very satisfactory.

The rooms are a bit small but clean and handy. There's a sidewalk restaurant right at the entrance. Located at Springfield Avenue just a few minutes walk from Kings Cross Train / Subwaystation. Easy to connect to anywhere in Sydney, including airports. Close to city and the operahouse. Staff at the reception are really supportive and friendly. Good value for money.

Beautiful old building, situatited just off Kings Cross. Inside the building looked slightly run down but the rooms had wooden floorboards and all looked recently refurbished, my room was clean, simple and comfortable, exactly what we needed. Staff were helpful and friendly. Beautifull cafe/restaurant out front with lovely seeding area, however we only had coffee from there so we can't judge the food. Highly recommended for place to stay for a city break to Sydney, central and two mins walk to kings cross station.
