Great location to UNSW, hospital transport, shops and restaurants. Room was clean and comfortable. Will stay again. Room was very quiet, bathroom large and modern. When the light rail is completed this will be an even better place to stay
My daughter had a follow up check up at the Prince of Wales Hospital. We have stayed here before. It is very convenient to visit the hospital as it is just across the road. The place is very clean. We will use this place again. The thing with the Avoca is the floor boards creek a lot. The Avoca is not far from a pub , where we had diner , the food is good. More shops 5 minute walk up the road. Coles ,Woolworths chemists ,whatever you want.
Stayed 4 nights for family reunion. Considering Sydney prices the Avoca Lodge was very good value. It was clean and although decor was dated I found it very comfortable and slept better here than in some 4 star hotels I have experienced. Reception was friendly and responsive. The Lodge is a few minutes walk to cafes and restaurants and also local supermarket.
The bed sheets were stained and room dirty management should hand every guests there policy when they walk thru the door got discharged from hospital and they wouldn't give any money back for the next nights stay absolutely disgusting manager needs more management skills spoken to rudely and hung up on cheap and nasty
When paying over 100 $ a night you at least expect the place to be cleaned. This was a horrible experience. We just booked it as we wanted to extend our stay in sydney for 1 night and all of the hotels in our budget were full. Big mistake from our side.
not informed they didnt have parking. extra $28 per day in hospital parking. Room was dirty and very dusty! floor boards creaked every time you moved around room! seriously over priced. Reception staff were not helpful at all.
We booked Avoca Lodge due to the proximity to the hospital but this is a warning for everyone who's considering this "hotel". Literally everything in our room was dirty, here's a list: - Dust everywhere - seems like this room hasn't been cleaned for decades. - The carpets are disgusting, not just in the rooms. - The cutlery and plates were ALL dirty. - There was hair in the bed linen, the linen was dirty (blood?) and ripped. - The bathroom had blood and pee spills on the wall. - There was mold almost everywhere. - The first night we got visited by a cockroach. The list goes on... We left earlier but were not even refunded the last night we didn't stay.
This place did not feel safe and was very dirty. I didn't sleep much throughout the night as people were slamming doors, pacing up and down the hall way. The rooms were tiny, and were not clean at all.
Room was very clean and had the space for two more people,close to university but car parking was a bit of a nightmare..but I think that is always going to be the case in the city .got key no worries,new bathroom which was spacious,close to shops(walking distance )and lots of meal choices close by.Clean,cheap accomodation ,good for what we required.
I'm not a very demanding person. I'm used to adapt to every place I visit, but for this time I found it fair to tell you how awful the place was before you take your personal decision. Firstly, you can find either cockrouches in the kitchen while preparing a tea or in the bathroom while a relaxing shower. The place is not neat. I thought the kitchen would be useful till I bumped into the first one where the dishes are placed. Gross. I wonder why most of them find the place so cosy. Thus, the cleaning service is to be done in the rooms every 3 days (but more if weekend or bank holidays). The wifi service is limited, as when you run out of it you'll be asked to pay an extra amount per day. One could deal with this, tho. The stairs and the ground crack and make a loud noise at any time in the night when someone wander through the aisles. Not to mention the prices. I'm complaining about this all also because I can't get to understand how the price we paid (1000 AUD for 5 nights) doesn't make them pay attention to all these facts. A higher quality should be deffinitely offered so far! I could expect it from a really cheap hostel or motel, but not from an stablishment that had actually rose their prices for Christmas time in purpose for the dates, not due to an actual demand. We run out of options to chose somewhere else, better and cheaper and that's why we ended up here. I understand how offer-demand works, but this has been too much. Shameless. Smelly rooms on the ground floor, as they don't have any kind of ventilation and the windows remain attached not to be open. Humidity odour is very unconfortable. Staff was nice though, truth be said. And good location plenty of cafés and restaurants, and near bus station. Thank god we enjoyed our time in the city and could make the most of our travel regardless of the resting place.
