The Randwick Lodges are great places to stay, are normally affordable and generally pleasant places to stay. I recently stayed one night at Avoca Lodge, where I have stayed before and had no complaints. This occasion however I did not appreciate the $133 charge for one night's stay for a double room with no digital nor Foxtel television, and a shower that requires fixing, with broken windows. I would have had a better shower under a hose. Please, if you advertise certain amenities for certain rooms please charge accordingly. Perhaps it would be advisable to update all the rooms to the same level or at least have some of them at more of a 'budget' price. Also, I received the Facebook email prior to checking in to like Sydney Lodges on Facebook and receive a late check in, this did not happen. And are the Guests with Benefits cards still in use, or is it pointless me retaining this? I will give the benefit of the doubt and will stay again.
