Disappointed that the hotel doesn't have Wifi but only cable. Every hotel nowadays accommodates this whether it's free or paid. Even though it's a modern hotel, I would have expected modern technology. Would recommend wifi service so we can work in the lobby or be a bit mobile

I stayed here last week for the second time in a little over two months. $197 room only then an additional fee for parking. No wireless in rooms only in the lobby and then they want you to pay for it? Poor service for a hotel with business people in, most major chains now include wireless for free. In room... More

Great location, quiet, very comfortable, modern. Food and hospitality was great. Service was very polite and professional. Only complaint is that the towels are too small and thin. Ladies also like 2 towels one for the hair and body. So that all said all that is needed to get an outstanding rating from many women would be large soft fluffy... More

Close to the beach, the stadium for the NRL, concerts etc. Within walking distance of all the great restaurants in Wollongong - so you don't have to drive everywhere. Free parking outside or underground parking in the hotel is very convenient. The restaurant in the hotel has some great choices and the pork belly was magnificent and the salted caramel... More

Rooms and staff were excellent. The only issue was that the removal of used plates and cutlery from the breakfast tables was very slow to the extent that we found it difficult to find somewhere to sit that was ready for new guests.
