Stayed here for one night recently and apparently we were upgraded to a deluxe room well let me tell you I would hate to see what a standard room was like. Firsty the price for $146.00 a night you wouldn't expect the penthouse suite at the Mirage but you would expect a comfortable room for the evening........ not so! The... More

We were very very disappointed as the room was very expensive and the room was old and smelly, big cockroahes running on the floor, beds were uncomfortable, waterpipes were noisy, no pressure in the shower...

We stayed here recently on a trip to Wollongong. I booked the accommodation late so this was the only affordable option available. In hindsight, I would happily pay the extra money to stay at the Novotel. The accommodation here was very basic. The sort of place you would wear thongs in the shower. The room above us was extremely noisy.... More

It was so bad I had to leave, the room smelt, guest already playing loud music and drunk and it was only 2pm. Don't ask about the showers as I didn't stay long enough, the bed was hard and the room cold. Manager leaves at 8 so no security, I felt unsafe so if travelling alone keep on driving.

This may be a budget motel in an older building and the rooms are somewhat on the small size but are very clean (kept this way by capable, friendly staff), The managers will help you with anything you need and are so approachable we shared some bad jokes (a highlight of my stay). The motel is within walking distance of... More

Not a very cosy place to stay, with no extras. The bed was very hard, the bathroom very dark, and the free wifi is parcelled out in half-hour allotments. The attached restaurant is very nice, and there are a couple of other eating places in walking distance, however the location is far from central--it's a 10-15 minute walk to shore... More

You get what you pay for! Close walk to mall and Win stadium. Terrible shower. Uncomfortable beds and the cleaning staff come into your room before checkout time to collect towels to wash. They knock once and don't give you a chance to open the door before they've walked in.

Old and tired but clean enough. This could definately do with a bit of paint, new carpet and a modern touch and it would be ok to be rated as 3 stars, but I think it's more like a 2 star. Ok for overnight stay.
