“A thoroughly pleasant experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

The single room was small but had all my needs and it was clean and cheerful with a feeling of security. I knew I would be happy with my stay there. Staff were pleasant and smiling and there were sufficient towels, soap and complimentary shampoo/conditioner. My bed was extremely comfortable with click table lamp at my elbow. Shower was hot any time I used it, and everything worked - cable TV, air conditioning, fridge. Kitchen available for guests with china and cutlery and small dining table if need. Only disadvantage: window rattled in the wind.

Room Tip: I was on first floor which felt nicer and backed onto a small laneway where there didn't seem to...

I booked this hotel last minute for a Saturday night. The check in staff member was very friendly and the room clean and comfortable with air con, tea and coffee making facilities. For my room, I did have to request a hair dryer, and the ironing/laundry facilities were on another floor. However, I did not find this to be an issue. Since the hotel is set back from the main drag of Kings Cross, noise was not a problem. It's a good location, short walk from the train station and near the nice cafes in macleay street for your morning coffee.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Springfield Lodge at Potts Point for 5 days during March. After reading a lot of mixed reviews I must admit I was a little skeptical, however,I was definitely not disappointed! This is a great little hotel right in the heart of Potts Point, very close to bus and train links as well as bars and restaurants. It's about a 15 minute walk from the city centre making the location convenient for site seeing and exploring.

The hotel itself is unique - it is small and traditional yet modern. We had a 'large' room on the 3rd floor which I would say is a fairly normal sized hotel room with a miniature bathroom. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had an awesome (and quiet!) air con system. We had some noise from outside during our stay but not enough to cause problems. Noise was/is to be expected due to the location. Yes, this is near what's classed as Sydney's 'red light district' which is little more than some strip clubs, kebab shops and bars. This is really not problem but could see why this area (not the hotel) would not be suitable for families. I would definitely recommend this place, especially for couples or friends travelling together.

We loved the location and the accommodation. Easy access to it and all areas by train. Shops, stores and restaurants extremely close by. Our room was very comfortable, clean, great kitchen and laundry available to use. The staff was very nice, inviting, friendly, informative and helpful. I would recommend the Springfield Lodge to everyone. We were there New Years Eve week and the price was very reasonable especially for that season.

Room Tip: We were on a budget and the lower level rooms were very nice for a very good price.

We booked on line a few months before our trip. We arriived in Kingscross, left the station and walked to Springfield Lodge within 5 minutes. First impressions were great when we first saw the lodge from the outside. Went inside and were met by a very friendly reception gentleman who confirmed our booking, checked us in and had some good local knowledge. Our King room was more than adequate and yes the bathrooms are small but I am 6'2 and 100kgs and i could fit in OK with spare room. EXCELLENT water pressure in the shower.
Very comfortable bed and the cockatoos in the trees outside our window were a nice touch.......
We could hear people in the room above us to quite early hours the first night but ear plugs soon fixed that the following night.
The room was very clean and tidy and we felt it was good value for money. Loved that it was quite central and within walking distance of some of the great attractions in Sydney if you didn't mind a bit if a walk, Can highly recommend the red explorer double decker bus. Worth the $40 to get your bearings and tour the local attractions.
Cheap eating too within walking distance of the lodge. Overall, we really enjoyed staying here and will definately stay again when we return to Sydney.

Room Tip: Did not see other rooms but can recommend the king room. We were on the first floor. Adequate size f...

My husband and I stayed at Springfield for three nights in a deleuxe double room last weekend. We basically chose the place because of the price and location. Accommodation in Sydney seems expensive compared to other Aussie cities, so AU$334 for three nights was pretty good. Check in was friendly and efficient, and we were able to store our bags while we went out for the day (we'd arrived on a very early morning flight).

The room itself was adequate - just a double bed rather than queen sized, and the bathroom was very small so if you're a larger person or like more space you might want to look at their more expensive rooms. Decor was average and the TV was quite old, although that didn't bother us as we hardly watched it. Some of the linen (towels) was starting to look a little frayed and old. On the upside, the bed was comfortable, the aircon was good and quiet, the bar fridge was fine, and the bedroom itself was a good size for two. My husband used the wifi ($5 an hour - pretty good speed, although the whole hour needs to be used in one go).

Reception was very helpful when we asked them to book a Blue Mountains day trip for us (Oz Trails - recommended - pick up from Holiday Inn round the corner).

The location of the hotel is really good, as long as you don't mind having to walk past a few Kings Cross crazies and junkies to get to the hotel from the train station - just makes things a bit more interesting :-) Potts Point on the other side of the hotel is nice (good cafes - try Cafe DOV) and it's a walkable distance to the city and Paddington, and easy to get transport to Bondi. There are several supermarkets nearby - one just over the street, as well as Coles and Woolworths a bit further away. Good to be able to grab some breakfast essentials as the hotel has a very basic kitchen for guests to use.

My only real gripe about the hotel is something that was kind of beyond its control. We had a terrible night's sleep on Saturday night due to some other guests talking very loudly in the corridor outside our room about 2am. My husband eventually told them to keep it quiet, but it would have been nice if reception had been open at that time so we didn't have to do this ourselves. It was the kind of behaviour I'd expect in a youth hostel rather than hotel.

However, I'd be totally happy to stay at the Springfield again if in Sydney on holiday.

Room Tip: We had room 317, a deluxe double at the back of the hotel. No view out the window, but had no worrie...

enjoyed a one night stay in a double room at a pleasant and comfortable lodge situated in the heart of kings cross -was good value for the cost and would have no trouble recommending it. excellent stay if you're looking to see the character of the area and don't plan to spend too much.
