Stayed one night at the Avoca Lodge last week. Old building with "budget accommodation" on it should alert you not to expect glass and steel construction. Reasonably well-maintained facility, friendly & helpful Reception staff, clean room, adequate basic facilities i.e. fridge, dbl bed, desk & table & 2 chairs, coffee/tea making facilities, en suite w/ toilet, shower, medicine cabinet, basin and plentiful hooks. The room had aircon & fan and an opening window (quite a treat after staying in "luxury" places where you can't open the windows). Wireless Internet packages available. Did not sign up for access due to reluctance to enter credit card details rather than room details. Stayed in an upstairs room with very squeaky floor. Unfortunately, the chatting (smoking?) people were on my side of the lodge, hence "noisy" and "smelly" with the window open. At least that subsided by bed-time. And someone's alarm went off ridiculously early. THEY slept through it, I didn't. Situated conveniently directly behind Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick. Short walk to the local convenience store/cafes/bars/restaurants. Notes to owners: please put a rubbish bin in the bathroom - and hand towels would be welcome...and please drill ventilation holes in the wardrobe for the refrigerator. I would definitely stay here again when visiting the POWH.
