You get what you pay for with this motel. I booked one of the cheaper rooms and it was adequate for my needs. It would be tight for two people, however. The furniture was basic and the room decor was tired. However, it was clean, the water was hot, I slept well and management was friendly.

This place might need an upgrade. I found my room a bit worn, but it was clean and quite comfortable. There was quite much space in the bathroom. The motel is located close to the city center, but you need to drive. It's in a peaceful area, not really much around, but for an affordable price it is a totally... More

I booked this room VERY last minute on a Friday night when I realised I was going to be too tired to make it back into Sydney (safely). The lady who took my reservation on the phone was LOVELY. Even stayed back a bit for me. I really appreciate things like that. Good service makes a huge difference when it... More

Room was really small, shower door did not close so water went everywhere. Their was a hole in the window of the bathroom so their was a cool breeze coming though the whole night. Wasn't enough parking so had to park on the street over night. Though for the room we got that the price was expensive. When we told... More

The place was very clean, it could do with a coat of paint but otherwise very good. Staff are very polite and friendly. It is very close to the city centre and the beach. It is not noisy and we had a great night sleep

Very friendly staff, clean but a bit old & tired. We stayed in a family room and it felt like the single beds were put into where a lounge should have been. At least it was fairly quiet for a Saturday night.

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.

Thank you for your review. It is an old building built 1946. We are in the process of renovating an ongoing issue that may take time to resolve.

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.

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. Yes we have small rooms. Some are bigger than the others depending on the configeration. A person is unlikely to stay in a room all day. There are lots of things to do and see in Wollongong. Kind regards Beydon. More

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.
