Perfect place to stay for a few nights if you want somewhere in a great area at an excellent rate. My husband was delighted to find that one of the staff who had been there the last time he visited, about 30 years ago, was still there! Excellent coffee and breakfast. Would certainly stay here again.

enjoyed a comfortable stay, great value for money, close to railway station, quiet and great cafe on ground floor. Staff friendly and helpful. Only one little problem - there was apparently a kitchen available for use 24/7 - we found it but the door was locked - and reception wasn't open (we wanted to make our own breakfast as I have coeliac disease and travel with my own cereal and bread). However we did have dinner at the cafe and they were very accommodating, providing gluten-free food,. Meal was wonderful!

The office staff a real helpfull and nothing was to much trouble.
We would reccomend the resturant that is at the entrance way they have great coffe and a real good meals and hearty breakfast.

Room Tip: The back rooms are quieter than the ones out on the street but then you miss the night life from you...

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.
