As an "out of towner" I needed somewhere to stay while my wife was undergoing treatment in the nearby Prince of Wales Hospital. The High Cross Park Lodge was not only close but the rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. As I was unsure how long I would be staying the staff were amazingly understanding and helpful as my departure...

Oh dear! We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. We advertise a weekly service and perhaps you missed this information when you booked. We are always happy to provide extra amenities and clean towels when requested. If you are wanting a room with daily servicing may I recommend Perouse Lodge just 50 metres from High Cross Park...

The accommodation was in a convenient location to where we needed to be. A short walk to some nice restaurants in Randwick and of course a very short walk down the hill to Coogee Beach. The room we stayed in was basic, but clean and had what we needed, including a small kitchen with toaster and kitchen sink that I...

The price was right and the place looks like an old Victorian house with several rooms turned into hotel. My room has a fireplace that is blocked by one of the beds of a two bed in a small hotel room. The check in was done by a very nice Taiwanese woman and was very polite and informative about the...

I stayed at this place for a visit at UNSW, which is within 10 minute walking distance. The room I had was rather cheap for Sydney standards, probably as cheap as it gets unless you stay in a hostel. It is better suited for short term stays, as there is no daily room service and the room is very small....

Excellent dinner options, being just a short stroll from The Spot and its choice of restaurants, or even a counter meal in the pub on the corner. Easy access to the city centre, with frequent buses going down the nearby main street to Circular Quay, or a good walk down to Coogee Beach. Despite Cuthill Street being very busy, our...

The lodge was quiet, apart from ambulance sirens throughout the evening. The room was not large but was clean and the bed was very comfortable.
