“Good value, good location, excellent bedd”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I wish Trip Advisor didn't make the 'couples' icon a romantic one! However, our stay here at Springfield Lodge as a long married couple was comfortable, convenient and good value for money. The location is Kings Cross/Potts Point, so well placed for a range of places to eat and drink, and good for transport connections (324 from Bayswater Road to Circular Quay). The staff are friendly and helpful. We stayed in a king room with a big bed and small bathroom - much better than it being the other way round;-). The room was on the top floor at the back; a quiet location, although up a narrow flight of stairs from the 2nd floor.
Another location tip is that free wifi is available in the Kings Cross library on Darlinghurst Road, open 7 days a week.

The rooms are a decent size the bathrooms are really small, but what amazing value. The rooms are well maintained, the bed large and surprisingly comfortable, and the hotel is in a perfect location to base yourself to explore Sydney by foot, its only minutes to the Opera House, the gardens, the harbour, the city and sensational restaurants. The staff were very welcoming and obliging. The best coffee of our entire trip was in Petrol - the cafe downstairs. If you are after 5 star luxury and spaciousness this hotel is not for you, however, if you don't mind the compact bathroom where your knees touch the wall when you're on the loo (you've got to smile at that) but everything you need at a budget price, Springfield lodge is great.

Room Tip: If you don't mind stairs the upper floor has rooms with decent views over the city.

Stayed 4 nights in a basement room, to keep costs down. The room was small, but adequate. Bathroom very small, but, again, adequate for our needs. The room was serviced daily & was very clean. Reception staff were always friendly & helpful.
Easy walk to Kings Cross Station, Coles supermarket. We had dinner (twice!) at the Fountain Cafe nearby, which was excellent. Didn't try the lodge's restaurant, as my son is gluten-free & I'm allergic to garlic, so our food options can be limited.
I would definitely stay at Springfield Lodge on any future trips to Sydney.

The property is SERIOUSLY let down by its MISERABLY small bathrooms. The location is excellent, the rooms are beautifullly maintained, but could have used a little more consideration in their layout - i.e. for my money, a mirror is better placed above the desk rather than opposite the bed! (But I'm sure there are those who would disagree with me). wj.scribe

Thank you for staying with Sydney Lodges at Springfield Lodge.

We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We're sorry to hear you did not find the rooms had an adequate bathroom. They definitely are on the small side due to the heritage listing on the building. Our Small Double Rooms ironically have the largest bathrooms, so you might look at booking one of these on your next visit.

Springfield lodge is a nice clean place to stay. Although the room I stayed in was small, it was very well maintained. The private bathroom was in great condition as well. It's a few minutes walk from the Kings Cross train station, and a couple of minutes from Coles that is open until midnight, and many fast food outlets. It took about 30-40mins to walk to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I stayed Sun through to Wed, and it was always quiet at night. The staff are very helpful and friendly as well.

Easy to find (about two minutes on foot from Kings Cross station - just choose the exit to Victoria street, not Darlinghurst road), beautiful old building, clean cosy rooms & friendly stuff. If you don't need anything posh & pricey but do need a fast access to all the tourist attractions - Springfield Lodge is a great place to stay at. Plus, iconic Harry's Cafe de Wheels is just a few steps away (stairs to Woolloomoloo bay can be easily found at the end of Victoria street). Loved it. Would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Many a tear had to fall but its all in the game called hospitality, yes those glorious fun filled moments when guests come face to face with hosts!.

This is my fifth visit to Springfield Lodge in one year and I am a very happy person.

The team led by Marousa, and staff and purely delightful, Marian the head of the team that operate Springfield Lodge are exceptional in everyway.

Its never easy attempting to please all the guests all the time.

I am a skilled operator myself in hospitality and find Springfield Lodge simply gracious and accommodationg at all times.

I chose the king suite on level 4 which is quiet and delightful views facing west.

Springfield Lodge is only minutes to everything, its safe and clean the team efforts are appreciated and the suites though not huge are fine, clean, tasteful, and you can always ask for anything you care for.

Each suite has a fridge and basic equipment, its fairly priced and kind warm genuine service.

I shall be back!!

The upsetting part is saying farewell, but then on arrival your smiling again.

Well done team your the best.
