Clean, tidy but soulless. Staff seemed disinterested, even bored. Fine for a business night away but wouldn't rush back there again. Restaurant not open on Monday night. Menu at the bar was not entirely available either, so felt like I had to scrounge for a meal after a busy day. Not my favourite night away.

The lift was dreadfully slow and really inconvenient!!! It really needs addressing if you want conferences held at your hotel in future. Rooms were great etc but the access to getting around the hotel was not good at all. Stairs are difficult with bags, luggage etc and quick access to outr rooms during the course of the day was a...

Breakfast poor on busy mornings...running out of everything! 30 minute wait for refills even on the basics like water. Can't believe you can not get Wi-Fi beyond the 3rd floor...plus you have to pay by the hour for it.

We were lucky to have snagged a good deal and paid a great price for a nice hotel. Within walking distance to resturants and stones throw from the beach. Only thing to improve is the cleanliness of bathroom and floors

All the staff were friendly and very helpful. Beautiful modern hotel which is close to all facilities. I definitely look forward to staying there again. Next time for longer stay, and in summer so we can use the pool.

The room was expensive for what it was, there was a bad odour from the bathroom, I was questioned as to why I wanted another towel which I didn't appreciate, location is central to Wollongong which was a plus.
