I recommend staying here if you need accommodation close by to the Prince of Wales Hospital. Advantages include very short walking distance, close walk to restaurants and cafes etc. The one big disadvantage is the amount of traffic noise. Plenty of buses that go past and because there is a traffic light at the front you will hear them come and go often. Made it very difficult to get a good nights sleep!
Beware - it is the organisations "policy" to take your ALL credit card details (written on paper) together with a photocopy of your drivers' licence...which is against "Credit Card Management Laws" in Australia. Security of the information is not guaranteed and staff were not sure how such records were managed. Staff were rude when asked about the policy.
Randwick is beautiful area with lots of public transport near by. The lodge is lovely, safe area even in the night as there is lots of foot traffic from the hospital across the road. We parked the car at Wilson parking at the Ritz Cinema complex, just up the road from the hotel where the main food and retail shops were. Can't recommend Isabella' Spot enough for being a good place to eat, within walking distance to the lodge. The noise of the main road outside the lodge was only a factor when we were on the balcony m, those doors are amazing to keep the outside noise out like they did! Really enjoyable stay, we'll be back again next time we come to Sydney.
I stayed at the lodge after receiving medical treatment nearby. The room was very basic but had everything I needed for my stay. It was clean and comfortable - more than what I expected for the price point.
I turned up at 10pm and had already cancelled and found somewhere else to stay by 11pm. I'm not sure which rooms they use to advertise there hotel on booking.com but it certainly wasn't the one we were put in. The room was small, dirty and dated. Instead of the large bay windows advertised, we had a tiny window in the corner of the room, half obstructed by a television and a wardrobe. The walls were so thin I could here the couple in the next rooms' conversation. The toilet seat fell off the first time we used it. The Wifi didn't work and the fridge in the corner constantly hummed. I had booked to stay for a week and had to pay for two days as a cancellation fee. I was happier to pay and find somewhere else than stay in this room. Had they displayed the pictures of the room we were actually going to stay in I certainly wouldn't have booked this hotel in the first place. The reception was closed by the time we got there which they had already warned us about, but we didn't want to spend the night in the room to discuss it with them in the morning. I managed to find somewhere else, so we left asap.
Good value for money. Nice service and convenient to everything in Sydney. This is a better place to stay at a cheaper rate than a lot of other hotels in Sydney as it's a good quality place (unlike many of the kings cross hotels) and is still very close to the city
Great location, across the road from the prince of wales hospital. It's got a near new bathroom, and we had our own balcony. It's very clean and has friendly staff. Laundry facilities were adequate. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, even though the floor boards were very creaky throughout the room and down the halls. Though overall, it was perfect for what we needed, across the road from the hospital and right next door to a pub where you can buy meals all day every day.
We stayed one night as my partner had surgery at the local hospital the room was clean and comfortable and staff was great. Close walking distance to the Main Street and hospital, car parking was a little tricky but had no issues otherwise.
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 date changed like the wind! The pricing also made it exceptionally good value. I would highly recommend the High Cross Park Lodge should you need to stay in the Randwick area of Sydney.
We stayed here for 7 nights,during this period nobody came to clean the room or empty our garbage.room was so noisy,could clearly hear all the traffic,everything,also room was very small and not nice,walls and carpet were dirty. Need repaint and refurbish.We would not choose this place again. Only good thin was asian restaurant nearby.
