i was very happy with everything about the avoca lodge.friendly staff clean rooms etc.however there is one big problem with the avoca and that is the creaky floorboards.we had to use ear plugs and still could hear them.if you have a room on the upper floor there is not a problem just the ground floor.

Great location.

Great location with restaurants nearby and Coogee beach down the road. No onsite parking but always managed to get a park on the street without too much trouble. Family room with ensuite was comfortable and to the standard expected of a budget hotel. Good value for money.

OK, but very oldfashioned

room was oldfashioned, especially the door - it was so noisy in the room from the corridor. And the building is wood, so the floors squeak with every step. There is no sleep.

budget of all budgets

Floors very squeaky you wake up everytime someone walks on the floor. They only clean the rooms once a week never saw anyone working there never topped up tea/coffee or made our bed in your room so u have to do ur own shopping. They could atleast put a toaster in every room. Look it did us for our stay but I wouldnt stay there again and would be nice to be welcomed by staff when checking in n leaving not just put ur key in a bowl and leave

night before flying out

I was looking for something resembling a motel. It was clean but it was like living in a house with just rooms. There are no lifts, no parking and no one there to help you if you need anything. The guy that was there who was about to leave as we arrived did not know where I could find an ironing board. We later found that in the kitchen, not the laundry which is the only place he looked. The shower was small and the water was shooting out the door. We had cold showers because the water would not heat up. It did for about 1/2 a minute and then went cold. Then I realised there was no hairdryer so I could not wash my hair before getting on the plane. I can see how this would be good for people who may have family in the hospital but it was not something that I thought it was. It was however close to amazing restaurants and not far from the airport. I would however not stay there again.

Overnight night at Avoca Lodge

A clean an comfortable double room (but with creaking floor which may have annoyed anyone in the room below) in an old building, close to Randwick shops and restaurants. Modern ensuite. Parking could be a problem but I was lucky to get one at the front of the property. Would gladly stay again.

Family Budget accommodation

I booked a family room and a single room for my mother. The family room was reasonable for what you paid, but the single room which cost only slightly less was so disappointing that my mother found other accommodation. The single room was dingy and very small. Both rooms need to be painted and the carpets need to be replaced. Parking is also a problem as there is mostly 3 hour parking in the vicinity and the area is very busy. The photos on the booking site do not adequately portray the accommodation.

Splendid Intro to Randwick

Location is a couple hundred metes from 400 bus stop in front of Prince of Wales Hospital. A few minutes walk to good choice of eateries and shops. Reception service was a bit weird as its virtually non-existent but that doesn't matter much for a one night stay. Flat TV could be bigger just to 'blow my mind' about the room. Will stay here again as the room is the largest and most comfortable I've had in Sydney! One Queen and two single beds for AUD75? Best value in Sydney!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's an eatery a short walk from Avoca Lodge called Ambrosia 'On the Spot' cafe. Best value & portion serving on this side of Randwick - never had so much chips to chow down in my life!
