Definitely stay there again! Great beach and walking track within minutes of suites. Close to shops and university. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice pool area. Cafe and breakfast available but no restaurant which was ok. Security was high.

We recently stayed overnight at the Quality Suites. We stayed in a studio apartment that was spacious with a huge balcony with views to the mountains (west and north) The apartments are on a reasonably quiet street so we didn't have any problems with road noise etc. The apartments are close to Towradgi beach and a great walking or cycling...

We stayed here for the first time recently for a couple of days. What a very pleasant time, staff were just fabulous, very helpful and certainly knew where the great food can be found in Wollongong. Room was spacious, good light, excellent kitchen, modern building and close to a great hotel for dinner, and very good value. Breakfast was good... More

Took a self-contained two-bedroom apartment for two couples. Plenty of room; very clean and tidy; reasonable price. Air-conditioner was in a weird position, and not very functional on a hot day. Staff helpful and friendly. Located out of town, so you'll need a car.

After reading a lot of good reviews we decided to try the place out. We got a 2 bedroom apartment. Only had 1 bathroom between the two bedrooms which was disappointing. The toilet and shower were nice though. The aircon is set up in a terrible place. The compressor is on the balcony and heats up the balcony and basically... More

Very comfortable and spacious room although the bed was not particularly to my finicky back's liking! Probably what you would call a budget hotel because of its location well out of the centre of Wollongong but only a 5 minute drive to the city centre and main beach. More suited I suspect to business or conference stays although it did... More

We stayed one night in a spacious, clean two-bedroom apartment in this hotel, located in a quiet residential road ten minutes drive from Wollongong town centre. It had a large living space consisting of a kitchen area, dining area and a sitting area. The quality of the furnishing throughout was good, although the sofa in the lounge area was rather... More

Loved staying here. Would have stayed longer if possible. Modern, clean apartment - could not fault it. Friendly staff. Complimentary newspaper. Secure undercover parking. Nice and quiet area. Airconditioning worked well. We did not use the restaurant during our stay, but the menu looked healthy and reasonably priced.
