“Very good lodge”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

it's a very good lodge with an ancient architectural style. It's location is also convenient for shopping, the shopping malls such as coles and woolworths are only about 100 meters away, it's about 300-500 meters away from the university of new south wales.

Room Tip: i have no idea if there is swimming pool and fitness center since i was out for sighting all the day...

Good location, easy access to bus routes in and out of city and Bondi. Good value for money. Executive room's bathroom very small and somewhat difficult to get in and out of the shower, but not of big concern. Heritage room very comfortable and good size. Wooden floors slightly noisy.

Our stay here was pleasant (we stayed for 3 nights). We had a lower ground room which was fine, had everything we needed although it was slightly inconvenient that our actual bed, kitchen and then shower room was on different step levels. A bit of noise from the street but nothing major.
Lovely courtyard. Free wifi. Staff here are so helpful and made us feel welcome on our first few nights in Australia.

Room Tip: Don't chose lower ground room.

Great value. Good size room and friendly staff. We stayed ten days and the room was serviced a couple of times. Kitchen in the room, adjacent, was a nice surprise and saved a few bucks. Wi-fi was slow, but free and always worked. Very happy and will stay there again.

Room Tip: Get one on the front, with balcony.

You get what you paid for ... I looked at the pictures thinking "ho lovely an old building" forgetting what comes with old buildings: no noise insulation. We had a familly upstairs with a baby crying and the parents walking back and forth the whole night.
We were in a ground floor room, which was wheelchair accessible, and had ants. I can understand how they got there, ground floor, door directly from the street to the room. But you would expect that they would put products to avoid this...
The shower curtain was filthy, full of mold.
The bedhead was not attached properly to the bed so every time you move in the bed, you would here it banging on the wall. We had to move the bed away from the wall and put one of the pillow in between.

Thank you for staying with Sydney Lodges at Perouse Lodge.

I'm sorry to read you did not enjoy your stay as much as other guests have. I apologise for the maintenance issues with your room, this information has been handed on to the hotel manager so these things can be addressed.

We do hope you will allow us the chance to redeem ourselves from this falling short of our usually high standards of cleanliness.

Generally a good experience here – great location for University/Randwick/Eastern suburbs, with god bus transport close by. The reasonable price reflects the rooms – basic but comfortable. My only moans were the wifi was so slow that it was almost unusable, and on Friday night there were some noisy guests (a stag party) socialising loudly in the courtyard until 3am, and because the lodge is not staffed through the night there was no-one to reign them in.

Room Tip: Cheaper rooms on basement floor facing courtyard can be noisy if other guests are out there at night...

Thank you for staying with Sydney Lodges at Randwick Lodge.

We're happy to hear you had a good experience overall at Randwick Lodge and found the lodge well located near public transport, UNSW and the Eastern Suburbs. We are having quite a few comments about the slow WiFi come through, so we are in talks with the property manager about upgrading the system. In the mean time, if you do visit us again, Perouse Lodge and High Cross Park Lodge which are just across the park, have our new MyPort system of internet which is extremely reliable with a very fast speed.

I apologise for the noise from the other guests in the lodge. Of course, there is always a manager on call to help out after hours if you do encounter noise issues through the night, which are extremely rare at our Randwick properties.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor. We hope to see you at one of the Sydney Lodges properties again soon.

Location is convenience to move around with connectivity by bus. Room averagely cosy and comes with Wi-Fi (pretty slow but workable).
Housekeeping need to improve as they don't do it everyday, was told 3 days once and mine was the 4th day as they claim lack of manpower.

Hi Richard,

Thank you for staying with Sydney Lodges at Randwick Lodge. We're happy to hear you had a pleasant stay. I apologise if the internet was a little slow, Randwick Lodge operates our older system of WiFi which can be less reliable than that offered at our nearby properties Perouse Lodge or High Cross Park Lodge. I also apologise for the late housekeeping visit, a lack of man power is not an appropriate excuse for this, I will follow it with the area manager.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We look forward to seeing you in the near future. Thank you again for booking with Sydney Lodges.
