Very clean room with good TV reception, no tea coffee facilities, polite office staff who were always helpful. great position for shopping at nearby Randwick. Quiet room. Very close to The Spot which was great for eating out and a movie. Walk to pubs and beach.

I found this accomatation good. The room my daughter and I shared was modern and comfortable. Very convenient to Prince of Wales Hospital . The reason why I needed the accomatation in the first place. I was reluctant to leave anything in our room due to the lack of a room safe. Also very limited parking places. The staff uterlizing what limited parking there was.Hospital car park most secure option. We only had an overnight stay so required very little luggage .For anybody requiring a short term stay with close proximity to Prince of Wales Hospital Randwick Lodge is clean and comfortable .I would stay there again.P

Room Tip: Request a room at the back of the court yard as should be quieter.

This is the third time we have stayed here mainly because it is so close to Randwick Childrens Hospital and Prince of Wales Hospital(a 5 minute walk). We stayed in an "Ëxecutive" room. Although modern and up to date with it furnishings and fittings, it is quite cosy, especially the bathroom. Definitely not for families with young children as you will only fit one person in the bathroom at any one time with comfort, although I did manage with my 18 yo disabled daughter (not wheelchair bound) There are two table settings in the courtyard which we found convenient for breakfast and there is also a communal kitchen with microwave toaster etc. We were lucky enough to get a parking spot undercover ($10 per day). As far as location is concerned, you cannot go past this place for convenience. Supermarket, shopping centre and heaps of restaurants a 2 minute walk.

We had an iPad stolen from our locked room. Naturally we had signed something on arrival meaning the hotel took no responsibility. There were no CCTV cameras on our side of the building and no room safe. Also they only service the rooms once a week.

Due to the reason that the kind of the accommodation we booked were ran out , we were upgraded to exclusive bedroom without any extra charge.
The hotel looks very old from outside, but the interior is British style with excellent furniture.
The only irritating thing is that no car park space for us, and it is impossible to find a car park space nearby !
So we had to park our car far away and walked to the hotel.

Room Tip: No guest car park! If you drive there, it is a hassle to find a parking space!

Thanks for staying with Sydney Lodges at Randwick Lodge and thanks for booking direct with us through our own Sydney Lodges website, the most affordable way to book with no booking fees.

Sorry to hear you had parking issues. We have limited parking at our lodges in Randwick and unfortunately if you're not used to Sydney parking it can be tricky. The hospital car park is always an option at $16 per day though, should you not be able to find a park.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We look forward to seeing you in the near future.

I am currently staying here at randwick house and its my second visit relating to a member of family having a hospital stay. I am most impressed with its location. Very short walking distance to Prince of Wales hospital, across the road from shops and public transport. Walking distance to a fabulous restaurant strip and coogee beach. The rooms are renovated, some have minimal space and bathrooms tiny however the comfy mattressess and pillows are so very welcome. Wifi v slow but it is a heritage building. The reception staff have been very obliging and helpful which is such a plus. Its great that there is a courtyard and kitchen if needed. I am so impressed with this place that i may strongly consider booking here for future visits to sydney- hospital access required or not. It was easy to get to sydney city and back. Such good value.

Very disappointed with this accommodation. Parking was one of my "must haves" and although the website lists parking as a feature, we were told on arrival it was "subject to availability". In fact there are only 6 or 7 very small car parks for the 40 odd rooms. We were told there was no parking available for the first two nights of our stay. On our last night we were allocated a spot but unable to use it as the car next to our spot had parked badly and we couldn't fit. At least they had the good grace not to charge us for parking!

Advertised wifi did not work in our room (which was at the rear of the lodge), although we could access it from other areas of the lodge. The guest "kitchen" was adequate for us but what most people would call a kitchenette - toaster, microwave and sink, and I noticed the laundry was closed for maintenance (although this didn't affect us).

The room itself was clean and recently renovated, but very basic, lacking items such as tissues and a hairdryer which I would have expected from the (self) rating. The bathroom was tiny, and the entrance to our room was in a dark corner with no lighting (there was a light but no switch and it was always turned off).

Overall, the lodge is fine if you are looking for basic accommodation. However, it is not everything it claims to be....

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter.

Thank you for staying with Sydney Lodges at Randwick Lodge. Also, thanks for booking direct with us through our Sydney Lodges website, with the lowest rates on the web and no booking fees, we encourage all guests to book through our own website.

Sorry to hear about your parking issues. Of course, there's plenty of street parking around so I'm sure it wasn't too much of an issue. We don't guarantee parking at any of our properties, they are all on a first come first serve basis. As a result of your review we've removed the mention of parking in the lodge's facilities on our website so there is no future confusion.

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to review us. We look forward to hopefully having you stay with one of the Sydney Lodges again soon.
