Flying BNE-MAA in a month on CX. Layover in HKG close to 14 hours. What is your experience where airlines have offered accomodation when flying J and layover is significant (CX used to, but not anymore apparently)?

No CX don't

You'll need to book your own hotel room or find a nice place in the lounge.

I've stayed at the Regal Hotel which is attached to the airport and just looking online I can find dates mid next month for ~AU$ 200 in a basic room.

From memory they also offer cheaper day/half day rates if you book closer to the date you plan to stay.

With 14 hours you may even want to go to the city.  Not sure what you arrival time is, but if cost isnt an issue you could catch the Express train to either Kowloon or Hong Kong Island.  The Ritz Carlton sits atop the Kowloon terminal and has some of Hong Kong's best views, or for the Island side the Four Seasons is in the IFC (same building as air port train station)

Unless it's a 20 hours or more transition, otherwise I'll just spend 1 or 2 hours each in each CX and QF lounges. You may also enter HK and visit the Arrival Lounge which is located in between T1 and T2.

Hope it helps :)

The CX arrival lounge is absolutely tiny... I'd spend my time elsewhere.

Really depends on your energy levels and time of arrival/departure Regal Airport is near and best for a comfortable sleep and freshen up, though not much to do outside that!, though equally it could be a base to dump your luggage and a take a trip into HK to look around. A spa treatmnt or massage are also good ways of helping kill time!
