Basic accommodation in an excellent location.Posted Jan 7, 2014
This was the third occasion that I have stayed at High Cross Lodge. A budget hotel, but rooms are clean and in good repair and reception staff are friendly and helpful. The limited free on-site parking is appreciated, and the hotel is in a great location close to pubs and restaurants and right on regular bus routes to the CBD and Coogee.

No "free parking". Only 3 spots.Posted Nov 28, 2013
Cons: If 'free parking' is offered when booking, it must be provided. 'Frist in, best dressed' is unacceptable!!
Upon arriving to HIgh Cross Park Lodge, friend and I drove around the back to where there was allegedly 'free parking'. There were no spots available. We had driven 3 hours and had booked the accommodation based on the fact that it provided parking. After an hour of the receptionist being on the phone to see if she could find a parking spot (upon which we'd been left outside in the rain under an umbrella and had to go and find the receptionist again ourselves), we left and booked ourselves accommodation elsewhere. The receptionist claimed they provided no such thing as free parking and when provided with a printed email confirmation of our booking and the Expedia website which said others, she simply repeated to us that they didn't offer it. She suggested we wait around to see if someone left to take a spot, or that we could find a park across the street on a busy road, and lastly that we could pay $15 for parking a block away. We found this unacceptable and said that we would be cancelling our booking as they were not provided the services that we had booked with. She claimed a cancellation was impossible, whether they were providing what was offered or not. Having a brand new 3 week old car and having travelled 3 hours to our accommodation, we were not willing to accept that there was nowhere for us to park as stated in our confirmation email. We were chared for the accommodation without checking in. We went to the Sheraton on the Park instead - it was delightful!

Pros: Price, location, single rooms with ensuites.
Our group of seven in Sydney on business. This hotel was exactly what we were looking for. Very comfortable rooms with ensuites in an excellent location, at the right price. We plan to return next year.

August 2013 stayPosted Aug 11, 2013
Pros: Good location, halfway between airport and downtown. Quirky and charming, it reminded us of hotels in London where we've stayed. Very helpful staff!
Cons: Adding an elevator. Expensive, but lugging our suitcases up the stairs was difficult. Nice bathroom, but shower leaked out on the bathroom floor.
Location: Great location, half way between airport and downtown. Pretty park and small stores nearby. The Opera House area in Sydney is great, good nightlife!
A charming small hotel, unfortunately without an elevator. Very friendly and helpful staff. It didn't seem like the greatest value for the money, but we didn't price many hotels in the area.
