Changed booking upon arrival and got a lovely balcony room, my friend who traveled with me also got a single instead of the junior suite that I had booked. The staff were friendly and helpful about this change and it was no trouble to them. This at 19:00 hours. The room was comfortable with a nice firm bed. In the... More

Great company. Great variety of sweets, however a few more sandwich and maybe a few more savouries less sweeties. A little request that maybe the tea service should follow where the staff serve the tables first as we were not served tea until our beautiful fare was nearly complete. A definite all round fantastic experience though. We will be back,... More

Down side: Bed was uncomfortable, even allowing for the fact that all kings sized beds are two single kings pushed together. Additionally, shower is very average. Pressure was good, but shower head poor and adjust-ability limited.....in addition, copious water on floor. And finally, restaurant not open for lunch (a little fussy, I know, but you arrive around 2pm...a little late... More

Good hotel, we got a deal $199.00 for one night in a deluxe room ( had a side ocean view, no balcony) that included wine and cheese platter, parking, buffet breakfast and late checkout of 12. Only problem was buffet breakfast closed at 10am. If they give you a late checkout breakfast needs to be open till at least 11... More

This hotel is well located and the rooms are adequate. Its typical of the somewhat Spartan 4 star genre but, although the building appears new, some things like the carpet and bathroom grout are already starting to look tatty. The bathroom needs a bottle of strong bleach. The true difference between a good hotel and an ordinary one is the... More

Stayed just one night and was very happy with every aspect. Located near everything you need. Whisper quiet location and staff were happy to accommodate early check in and late check out. Great size rooms and we even had a view of the beach when standing on the verandah

Stayed here while attending a Conference in Wollongong. The room was great with a small balcony overlooking the swimming pool area. The King size bed was very comfortable and a good nights sleep was a great bonus. The room was quite large and well appointed. I ordered room service on one night, and was surprised at the rather large serving,... More
