We stayed one night, due to having an international flight the next day and wanting to make our total journey a few hours shorter. We chose this location due to being close to Coogee Beach and close to the area known as "The Spot" where we have found some great restaurants; and only a half hour drive to the airport. There are major supermarkets a short walk away, and we had hoped to make use of the regular bus service into the city to visit some galleries but ended up enjoying spending time in Coogee; so maybe next time on that one. We loved staying in Randwick Lodge because it has the feel of an old-style guest house and was quiet. We had a room in the back part of the lodge, and were not bothered by traffic at all. Our room was fairly small, and with a single bed that we didn't need, although was quite roomy for just the two of us, and I expect would be probably adequate if there had been a third person staying. The bathroom was very small; a bit of a squeeze whenever it was necessary to open the bathroom door or the shower door, but quite presentable and clean. We had booked a "Heritage Room" which is described as in the "Original heritage part of the lodge" and were a little surprised that we were not staying in the main building, but were staying in the rather less grand back part, which seemed a little newer, and had the look of a motel room, so I guess we have learnt to not believe everything in the advertising. But still, we enjoy our stay a lot; for us the main thing was that we had no traffic noise from the main road and close to a few important things. We also had a little trouble with the heating unit; the display on the remote didn't work so while the on/off switch was obvious we didn't have a clue what temperature we were setting the unit to; and the front desk staff, although friendly, didn't seem particulary interested in replacing the remote control unit. This was a minor issue, because the heating unit did work, although we had to use trial and error to get it to suit our needs.
