Parade Lodge is a clean, comfortable, and conveniently located family owned hotel in the inner suburbs of Sydney. It is well served by buses to the city, Central Station, and (across the road) the eastern suburbs beaches. Buses to the airport (400 & 410) depart from by the main gate of UNSW, which is a short (10 mins) walk along... More

The room was clean and comfortable, but a little dated. For $120 per night for a double room, it was fine. The floor boards creaked so not sure if the creaking could be heard from the room below so would recommend a room on the top floor as there were two floors. The fridge in the room was noisy so...

Room was quite clean, comfortable, with ensuite and kitchenette. Premises secure. Manager is genuinely friendly and sincere and very helpful. Parade Lodge was an ideal base for seminar we attended at Randwick Racecourse- 15 minute walk. Bus stop 20 metres away. Lots of eateries, and supermarket across the road. Great value for money. We'll stay there again.

I chose to stay in Parade Lodge as it is just a 5-minute walk to UNSW. We stayed here for 1 week as the uni apartment will only be available on the second week of April. The twin room where we stayed had an ensuite bathroom. This was something that was important to me. Other lodges and hotels of the... More

Parade lodge is a simple alternative for lodging near UNSW and on the ANZAC parade which means easy & quick bus service to downtown Sydney. The rooms are clean and comfortable but spartan. I found the shower in my room had very little water pressure. Otherwise, comfort was fine with decent heating and cooling.

Very close to UNSW, and bus stop to the city is right outside. All the basics: shower, bed, closet, sink. Also, a heater, laundry (didn't use), and internet (extra). Very accommodating and friendly/flexible staff. I was mainly in contact with them online. Family run.

This is now the 4th time that I've stayed at Parade Lodge during the annual Sydney International Bachata Festival at UNSW Roundhouse and I'll be back next year for sure again. The rooms are modest, but clean and have everything you need: toaster, kettle, fridge, fan, heater, windows that actually open and you have access to a communal kitchen with... More
