Avonmore on the Park Boutique Hotel
Ranked #1 of 11 Randwick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Trip to Australia to see our son who is in this part of Sydney. It doesn't appear to be well provided with good hotels or apartments but this fitted the bill perfectly. It's two/three old colonial houses on a quiet avenue merged into a very comfortable guest house/hotel. Our room on the top floor was just what we needed, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. George, the manager of the hotel, was friendly and helpful and always open to dealing with any minor queries we had. The situation of the hotel is ideal, too, about 100 yds to the nearest bus stop that will get you into the centre of Sydney in no time at all, lots of shops and eating places within 200 yds, and the beach at Coogee a lovely half hour's walk away (get bus for the return; it's all uphill!). Also, the airport is around15 mins by car or cab so what's not to like? Would re-book here for our next visit automatically. Much recommended.

Room Tip: Room 29, so long as you don't mind stairs.

We selected the heritage room for our stay in this hotel. Liking all things old and historical this room fitted the bill with it's old world furnishings. Coming from the bush, sometimes we have trouble sleeping in the city because of traffic and people noise. Our room was as quiet as a tomb. Making for a great nights sleep. We did the Coogee to Bondi coastal walk and caught a taxi back to the hotel. Randwick is full of great eateries. Breakfast and diner is all available close by.

Room Tip: Organise a parking spot before you get there. The hotel only has six available.

Clean and located in a prime spot in Randwick - no aircon (as fitting this would no doubt compromise the heritage and charm of the hotel), but ceiling fan is adequate for October - and windows do open (but don't stay opened). Courteous guy at reception. Guess I've been spoiled by some of the hotel rooms of late that I have stayed in..... But pleasant enough.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the park is quite nice - but if you have luggage, the top floor can be a long stret...

Have stayed here more than once. Very great location. Very comfortable, a bit of 'old world charm'. Very handy to many wonderful beaches. Large room, middle of range & not on street side, very very quiet. Sunday day manager, really courteous & polite, knows his job. He went out of his way to provide useful information about Sydney & local area. Great asset to this establishment. Transport also very good to many areas of this lovely city. Local eateries galore!

Excellent choice if visiting UNSW. Located on a quiet street but close to many restaurants as well as the University. Staff were very obliging. Room quite small and up stairs but comfortable for one person. Would stay there again.

We booked here at the last minute due to an unexpected Sydney trip during a weekend when a big rugby game was on, resulting in low vacancy rates. We chose the cheapest room and I think that based on that standard, 4 stars is a stretch. The room was clean enough but old, tired and cramped. The window rattled loudly so we had to jam something in it. The beds were quite uncomfortable. I think that a 3 star rating would be more suitable and would have given me more accurate expectations.

One of the days our room was not made up, perhaps due to us having the 'do not disturb sign' up for a 2 hour period mid morning (and no one returned later to clean it).

Apart from this - some positives. It's in a nice, quiet area, walking distance from some nice cafes. It's a short walk from a bus which takes you into the city. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. They were also happy to hold our luggage for us at the front desk us when we checked out. It is a lovely old building and has a nice garden courtyard.
