“Good basic facilities”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

I stayed overnight while at a conference at nearby Uni of NSW. Room was comfortable if a little spartan. My only issue was that there was no reading lamp set up, and I couldn't find a power point that allowed me to set up the available lamp close tot he bed.

The carpet is old and dirty. The room has a musty smell. The receptionist, a middle age lady, was very unpleasant. Service was poor. We checked out at 8am and requested to store our luggage till 1:30pm as our flight was 3:30pm. She said no. She can only store the luggage till 12:15pm as she's going for lunch break! There are plenty of choices in Randwick area. We will never stay there again.

We were well looked after at this lovely convenient lodge.
Our daughter had to stay an extra night in hospital and we were very cheerfully allocated a room for our unexpected extra stay.
the rooms were clean and well appointed.
Thanks guys.

Hi we always stay at high cross as it is friendly, clean and very much to our budget. The location is great,close to the Prince of Wales etc. The room was a little bit on the small side so may look at a bigger room next time. The receptionist were extremely friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a clean bed , shower, laundry and facility to make coffee etc you cant go pass the high cross lodge at the prices offered. Highly reccommend

Basic accomodation, rare to find a 5 sleeper but 5th bed quality was poor. Squeeky doors, but functional unit. Has a fridge and sink in room. Budget accomodation quality but prices high but only because it's Sydney. Location is convenient. Parking was manageable. I do recommend it for what it is.

Room Tip: The street facing rooms are noisy as there is a lot of traffic, but it has a nice balcony.

Great location, near Randwick Racecourse, Prince of Wales Hospital and Coogee Beach.
Rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. The bathroom was little on the small side but had a great shower and clean.
The lodge is located nextdoor to a pub with good meals.

The lodge is a coonected 2 old victorian houses joined and renovated to be the Hotel. It is stragically situated near prince of Wales Hospital and less than 2 km from cogee beach. A lot of public busses take you to Central, circular quay and Pondi Junction. Stop of the 400 for the airport is a pit further (Suitable if you have small hand bag or carry bag). Nearby Coles is a blessing for day to day shopping.
You have to struggle the stairs and corridors to your room (alone).
Rooms are on the small size and gets jammed if you have a big bag or sharing your double.
Rooms are equibbed with a kettle, toaster and a fridge. There are plates, mugs and knife,spoon and fork. Fridge has got no door and gets thick ice (not only in my room, but in 3 different rooms) Thawing the ice in between guests may help.
Beds are very comfortable. Rooms especially facing the street are very noisy from the frequent buses and noise from the pubs. Inside rooms are not that noisy but depends on your neigbours as the walls are very thin (and has ears). All door squeeks; room doors, bathroom doors and cupboards even 2 rooms away can be very noisy at night or early morning.
Rooms are only serviced once a week!!! Extra cleaning costs extra S20.00 So, get ready to collect your garbage, clean your room and preserve your towels for the week. If you don't clear the garbage daily, it attracts a lot of nasty insects and organic residue gets smelly.
Internet is miserable, you are better off getting a broadband from Vodaphone (After Coles supermarket), for 49 $ the SIM, the flash and 3 Giga for one month.
There is a common kitchen, microwave , washing machine (3 $ / run) dryer 3$/run, washing powder 2$/run.
My urgent issue was to find plug adaptor as I was from overseas. I was told they were all lent out though I did not see Foreigners in the lodge, this lasted for 2 weeks. I had to buy adaptor from outside.
For breakfast, I found it comfortable to get the toast or bread, cheese etc from Coles rather than to spend 8-12$ in nearby cafes.
There is no receptionist after 7 pm.
I did not have a chance or experience to compare other nearby properties regarding service or prices.

Room Tip: Whatever your request, they can guarantee the type of the room not the location. Rooms upstair and...

We don't provide staff members to walk with you down the halls so you are not alone, as you have mentioned. Unfortunately if you're travelling alone there is nothing we can do to rectify this problem.
