St Marks Lodge
Ranked #4 of 11 Randwick B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 June 2014

This lodge is comfortable, clean and central to randwick shopping centre (5 min walk up the street to the main drag) - it is basic and the bathroom is small but no complaints- shower was good. Bed was comfortable and on street parking was ok - I can see it may be difficult to get very close when parking on street at peak times but is not too bad. We stayed in room 25 up the top floor so lots of going up and down a couple of sets of stairs as no lift is practical in this sort of property, so ask for a room downstairs if mobility is an issue for you. We have stayed in a couple of the sydney lodges properties in this area and have found them to be quite sufficient for a couple of nights when visiting friends at coogee as they are well located and clean and good when on a budget in sydney.

Overall a great little place to stay - Was really handy to all public transport and definitely priced perfectly. Only thing I was disappointed in was that it was extra charge for the Wifi and when you book it does say wifi in the room under the Sydney lodges page. OVerall excellent stay and would recommend.

Room Tip: ask about free wifi if it is included

The rooms are overpriced for services given. No laundry, no room service and no catering are just the tip of the ice-burg. The rooms do not have good privacy and constant noises won't let you have a peaceful night sleep. The rooms are NOT air-conditioned which came as a big surprise. Rooms are weirdly designed and too small.

Cherry on the top is the ultra-rude and I-hate-my-job attitude of the staff. The constantly smoking attendant couldn't be bothered by our request to stop smoking in corridor. Highlight of the stay: the staff knocked on the door asked us to leave rudely at 10 am when we had paid extra amount for a late check out at 2 pm! Staff didn't even care to check for the check out times and staff felt no need for an apology on that occasion.

I would not recommend anybody to spend a huge amount of money on such a poor service. I wish I could get my money back.

Room Tip: Please avoid picking ground floor rooms.

A very clean and helpful place for a reasonably priced stay if visiting sydney and the eastern suburbs. A good area for getting in and out of the sydney cbd from. Parking is a little short on but otherwise a clean and tidy place.

Room Tip: Double rooms are good and roomy.

Located in a pretty building in a quiet part of Randwick, this was a great place to stay. Room was clean with lots of natural light. Very comfortable and spacious. Much better value for money than Perouse Lodge and High Cross Park Lodge nearby. However, it's a bit of a walk from Randwick shops at UNSW.

Fabulous location for our trip. We advised them our flight was delayed and the receptionist was not concerned. The room was clean,with more than enough room, quiet and very comfortable. We would highly recommend St Mark's Lodge.
