Springfield Lodge
Ranked #9 of 57 Sydney B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 August 2011

I stayed for several nights in a single room. This was very clean and comfortable. It had everything you need including a fridge and a fan. Bathroom area is small but perfectly adequate and was immaculately clean. The lift does not go to the second floor - the backstairs are a bit shabby and need a lick of paint. I was in a back room and found it very quiet at night even with the window open. I liked the lively area, very convenient for transport and walkable to the quay. Would definitely stay there again.

A very well thought accommodation concept, it speaks for style and comfort. I have stayed in various boutique hotels around the area, but this place has won my vote, and I was seriously prepared for less when I booked at last minute (since it has really cheap rates compared to the similar places around the area).

The reception people were very friendly and had my room prepared promptly, check in and check out went smooth. The service was excellent, room was very clean and comfy.

My second visit to Springfield Lodge, this time by myself instead of with my beau. Stayed in a room close to the back of the lodge on the ground floor. MUCH quieter than having a window facing to the street. Convenient location and soooo affordable! I'll be back again.

We stayed for two weeks. The room wasn't ready that we booked so they gave us weeks free Internet and upgraded us. There was maintenance going on at the lodge and three different mornings was hammering and drilling noises at 8 in the morning. But apart first that it was very good.

Thank you for your comments.

We're glad to hear you enjoyed our fabulous customer service and the great location of Springfield Lodge.

At Sydney Lodges we have a very strict maintenance policy that work is only to start from 9:30am onwards. I have investigated the noise issues and it appears it may have been from the building next door. None the less, I apologise that we did not get 'on' this earlier and have it stopped.

We look forward to seeing you again at Springfield Lodge in the near future.

I stayed here alone for 2 nights and it was a clean, snug room. The location was perfect (2 minute walk from King's Cross Station and a 15 minute walk to the city! Around the hotel were lounges, restaurants and clubs).

However: the bed was WAY too soft (I almost fell off while sleeping!) and the en-suite bathroom was extremely small.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay here as I've seen way worse. Despite the small bathroom and soft bed, I would still recommend this hotel because its clean, the staff is friendly, the hotel cafe with a terrace is great and the location is practical.

Thank you for your feedback. We take it very seriously and continually use feedback to improve the customer experience at Springfield Lodge.

We're very happy to hear you enjoyed the convenient location, it really is a very central spot to stay while in Sydney. I'm also glad you enjoyed the vibrant local area, there are so many great spots to have a meal or a drink, it sounds like you found a few of them.

Beds in a hotel are really hard to get 'right', because of course everybody has a different preference of the firmness of a bed. I'm sorry you did not enjoy our Sealy beds, they are very high quality and seem to please most people. If you do choose to stay with us again, I might suggest a King Room as it has a king-size bed. While the firmness of the mattress won't change, the larger bed may be more suited to you. Springfield Lodge is a heritage style building, so yes the bathrooms are not as spacious as newer modern day developments. I hope it was still comfortable for you none the less.

Thank you again for your feedback and kind comments.

Hello,

Thank you for your kind words about Springfield Lodge. We're glad you enjoyed our King Rooms, these are by far the best value rooms in the building and do provide plenty of space, as well as being very light and airy.

We look forward to seeing you again some day soon.
