“an ok stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

i was only in for the one night myself and my 8 month old baby.. i arrived after hours so my key was in the safe box out the front.. i was lucky to get one of the parking spots out the back at that hour so it was easier to carry my luggage up the stairs ( baby in the other arm haha). my room was small but for one night it was enough.. the bed was comfy... a couple of negatives.. my lamp didn't work , and i cut myself on small shards of glass on the floor under the bedside table ( trying to find out why the lamp didn't work)... i did let the receptionist know when i handed in my key..

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

In the past i've resorted to tripadvisor when i wasnt happy with a hotel but i've decided to post reviews when i've been very happy in hotels i've stayed. On arrival at the perouse lodge i wasnt sure what to expect as i had read some mixed reviews. Myself and my partner were staying there for our last week in sydney after 1.5 years living there between ending the lease on our furnished apartment and flying home.

Checkin at reception was quick, we werent asked for a credit card as they had that from the booking and had the room key in a few seconds. My first impression was that the room was small and a little dark but once i seen the large modern bathroom, powerful shower, airconditioning and large fridge, plates and other bits in the room we were happy.
The hotel had a small courtyard downstairs with a bbq and a kitchen with 2 microwaves, a cooker and a laundry with ironing board. Guests have their own plates and cutlery in the rooms so its nice not to have to use shared stuff from the kitchen.
The bed was nice and firm and very comfy. At the front of the hotel there is a small cafe which served which served very nice food and had friendly nice.

The Cambodian receptionist who checked us in and checkout was very professional and friendly and really made a difference to our experience in the hotel.

Perouse Lodge is very well located within minutes of lots of good restaurants and shops and a 15 minute walk to UNSW. The lady at reception was lovely and obliging, and the room was well equipped with TV, fridge etc. My main criticism is the size of the room which is really too small for two people. As a result only one side of our bed had a bedside table with lamp (as the other side was pushed too close to the wall). The ensuite needs some counter space and hooks to be more comfortable. We got free internet as we had a long booking which was a nice surprise. The rooms are clean and the air conditioning was very welcome! Parking is very challenging as there are only three spaces available as part of the property.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back as it's quiet.

The location was perfect for me and the room was quiet and clean. It was a small room and I had a few bags so it was a bit annoying and I 'liked' them on facebook to get the free internet access, although this didn't work which was a shame. It was comfortable, but nothing special - if I was here on business, I would recommend the lodge, but not for a holiday.

Perouse Lodge is the best of the Randwick Lodges, with Air Conditioning and very good folks at the front desk. Rooms are small (as is the trend here) but complete. Fridge and coffee making in rooms. Very clean. Get a 'guest rewards' coupon on your first stay and save money on the next stay. Easy bus service to anywhere.

Room Tip: Rooms on front are fine.

Accomodation was perfect for an overnight stay, room size is adequate if you are looking for somewhere to crash after a night out, when you are planing not to spend much time in the room. Decor is modern and pleasant, bathroom facilitiies are modern and clean.

i wouldnt recommend getting the rooms that overlook the back of the hotel, gets very noisey at closing time with them emptying bins etc (as advised by other friends)

Cafe out the front is perfect for a meal and serve a great coffee.

All round a great venue and one that we will return to when in Sydney.

Room Tip: Rooms not on the hotel side

Prouse Lodge was well placed for bus. the beds were clean crisp and comfortable, our room even though it overlooked the back of a Hotel was quiet enough. Shwer pressure was good. Bathroom overcrowded by large handbasin and can be hard to manouvre in. Found the stairs difficult, I would ask for ground floor in future. Shower needed somewhere to put the soap and shampoo etc, and the cleaner needs to get down lower on the tiles. Cafe downstairs was excellent. great location , slept well. Would stay again.

Room Tip: stairs are steep and I found them difficult, if i had known I could have requested a ground floor ro...
