3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Well located to city and beach/harbour. OK for a short stay - not sure about staying longer. Tired place, but rooms well cleaned/OK. I thought there might be more noise on a Saturday night, but very quiet!! Pleasant staff.

The rooms are small and it is an older place but they are clean and have everything you need. If it is just somewhere to sleep great value for money . If you intend staying in the room all day then go elsewhere. The couple running it are lovely and nothing is too much trouble for them.

Great service and convenient location. Although it is a pity we did not have a chance to check the buffet breakfast. Close to the beach. Room is a bit small but very cozy. There are lots of bars along the beach make sure to check those out.

I have not experienced a less comfortable night for as long as I can remember. The bed was ancient, hard and defied any semblance of give. The floor had more spring in it. The pillows were a perfect match for it - unremittingly firm. If the room had been any smaller, you would have needed to enter it sideways. The... More

Thankyou for your review. As you are aware you booked the smallest and least priced room in building. There are larger rooms, as the rooms are all different configations. Sorry that you could not find where the remote for the airconditioner was, and had an uncomfortable sleep. Sorry we did not meet with your expectations, pehaps it may be best... More

We only stayed one night as we had a function in Wollongong to attend, I thought it was a little overpriced considering the renovations that this place needs. It's looking very tired and old - a little bit of paint and some new fixtures would really improve the feel of the place but it was clean and tidy.
