Tidy and quiet place with friendly personnel”

I've spend a week with my girlfriend in the carnarvon lodge. The accommodation is located right next to the harbour bridge with 5 min walk to the train station and convenience stores. Staff was always friendly and helpful. The rooms and floors are well maintained and clean. Only flaw in my opinion are the very limited parking spaces in and around the building. Other than that, I had a very nice stay and I'm sure I will come back again

The property owner is fantastic, very accommodating. I think it's the room that I was in that affected how I rated the property. I'm a non smoker, the room I was in may near the long term stays. They smoked cigars every night, the smoke drifted into my room and it was very unpleasant. there was also a constant "taping" noise that would have kept me awake, but I had noise cancelling headphones to sleep in.

Will be better once renovations complete”

I love what they have done with the rooms that have been renovated so far- just a bit unpleasant while certain areas out of action - eg a VERY long walk to the bathroom which has one toilet and one shower in the same room to service entire floor while second bathroom being renovated. To bad if you are busting for the loo when somebody is in the shower! We had booked an ensuite room but it was unavailable due to renovations. Also - some rooms have NO window blinds or curtains - so no privacy when getting changed and the sun shines right in at 5am to wake you up. I know it's budget and we were not expecting much (we've stayed in backpackers), but it's advertised as proving linen - but there was no mattress protector and holes in the sheets. No top sheet -so not sure if the doona cover also gets washed? Finally - booking website advertised parking available - but it's either 2hr parking in the street (unhelpful) or there is ONE spot at rear of lodge for a fee.

Above average”

Room is a good size, TV and mini fridge were great bonuses. Place is still very new, as there are paint marks still on the floor from renovations. Not a major issue, though. Location is decent, albeit based among some very steep streets making it difficult to access for some. Bed was comfortable but pillows were too thin and flimsy. Not too far from the CBD, ferry isn't too far away. Would definitely consider staying again, as I am sure it will improve once renovations are complete.

Excellent location, poor cleanliness ”

The hotel is about a 5 min walk away from the harbour bridge and then walking that is about 20 mins but gets you straight into the city. This was the only highlight. The actual hotel was very dirty and looked as though it hadn’t been cleaned in weeks. We were greeted by a dirty mattress outside the front entrance. The bathroom had multiple body hairs -that were not ours - and stains on the mirror. There were thick layers of dust on the window ledge and bedside desk. Not a great stay.

The only pro was the price, but it wasn't that much cheaper than places that would have been much nicer. The property smelt and the alarm didn't work so the property was never secure. No parking for guests. Shared with a mate and the beds were less than 1m apart.

quick ferry trip across the harbour to the city, train back

The Carnarvon is a great little clean hotel if your wanting a city overnighter with no bells & whistles, rooms are always clean, best rooms are with their own ensuite otherwise you share a bathroom. I use the Carnarvon for overnight city business events, thats what its best for, its not a big player in the city hotel market, but its good value for what it is.

Location and price

Carnarvon Lodge is not bad just because the location and the price is good. The room is OKish if you're sleeping in the queen size bed but the person sleeping in the bunk didn't like where he's staying. The Chinese community living in the place is loud and lousy (like throwing their leftover rice into the bathroom bin). Place didn't feel secure as you can enter and leave anytime without any key needed. The bathrooms were always wet and felt like they're not being taken care of.
