Budget accommodation close to hospital and 15 min walk from cougee beach. When staff available they where pleasant. Basic rooms! Good local amenities, lots of nice food places and excellent location for the hospital.

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the "no-chatting/smoking" side of the building, unless that's your t...

To be able to be beside my wife within 5 minutes after walking out of my room was fantastic, straight across the road pick up a hot chocolate at the hospital cafe into the lift and there so convenient especially on the rainy days we had. I stayed for 3 weeks and only had one noisy night, and never found the kitchen area untidy or crowded. The washing machine and dryer worked well and only once did I have to wait for the dryer. Being from Port Macquarie I found the15 minute walk down to Coogee beach each morning so refreshing and the closeness of supermarkets and food outlets a great bonus and I challenge you to find a better seafood pizza that came from the Royal hotel just around the corner. New and modern the Avoca is not but clean, comfortable and convenient it totally is and I also found the unlimited parking right out front or just around the corner a bonus

Clean and comfortable, neither large nor too small, this met my expectations for a budget accommodation perfectly well. It was very quiet, the bed was comfortable, the TV, lights and taps worked etc. It was handy to UNSW which was convenient for my visit.

Room Tip: My room was upstairs around middle. No view, but sun gets in and no road noise.

Clean rooms, good price for the area, close to shops, hospital, amenities, cinema and transport. Not far from the city and beaches too. There are also some free, unlimited parking spots out the front of the lodge (Avoca Street) and in the closest side street towards Randwick shopping centre.

It is as it says "budget" accom. There were three motorised wheel chairs in the entrance hall requiring tricky negotiation for baggage. The over whelming smell of spices and curry made me think I was at the kitchen end of an Indian restaurant. I definitely was not going to accept a ground floor, near reception room. I was given 207 on the second. My first concern was the bedding had not been changed as the bed was not made and the room not cleaned. Two old soaps in the holders, full rubbish bin and long black hair through out the bathroom. I checked the bedding and inquired with a cleaner whom assured me she had just changed. It appeared clean and I'm an ex truckie having done hot bunk swaps two-up. The air con was good. TV was terrible as it was analogue and bad picture with 4 channels. $26 cab to airport. A block away from movies and great eating. 25 mins from NIDA, walking. Quiet enough for a country a lad. No cleaning came near the room in 4 days.

Room Tip: Second floor, opposite end of reception, as host can get loud.
