This is a motel situated in an area just out of Wollongong itself. I was staying in a room that faced the Princes Highway- it did get traffic noise. The room had a microwave, shampoo and soap dispensers in the shower, and some tea making facilities and clothes hanging space. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and they made... More

Once you get past the somewhat rundown roadside view of this property the staff are welcoming and eager to meet visitor needs. Internal room amenities are good with a comfy bed and minimal noise excepting the occasional late home guest. Bathroom is a snug fit but in keeping with general motel standard.

It is not too far away from CBD and closed to Nan Tien Temple. It is quiet place to stay especially if you travel as couple or family. Room is well maintained, at least it is clean and the bed is comfortable. For the price that I was paying, it's worth it! Things that I would strongly suggest for improvement... More

We stayed here 1 night during the weekend. Even though it is right on the Princess highway it's quiet at night and it's got all the facilities you expect from a motel. It comes up in the search results for Wollongong but it's actually in Figtree, a 5 to 8 minutes drive away from the city centre. Good option when... More

Stayed on December 12 for two nights. Great location for my needs. Rooms are old and need renovation but are clean and have new beds. Rooms in back are best with views of lovely landscape area. Food was good for breakfast. New managers Doug and Verne made the stay more enjoyable with their helpful attitudes. Would stay there again.

We stayed over the busy Christmas holidays, check in and check out was a breeze and the staff were very friendly and extremely accommodating. Although an older style of accommodation everything was very clean and grounds well kept. We got great sleep as it was nice and quite! Great locations! Walking distance from parks and shops and only a very... More

We had an overnight stay at this Inn. It does need an upgrade, especially the bathroom. The tiling is so old it looks disgusting, some bathroom mats would have made a difference. When I tried to connect to the internet using the password provided it said 'no internet connection', but what annoyed me the most was that when I made... More

Thank you for your review. Can you please contact us as we are confused as to your payment concerns. A number of booking engines do require payment by credit card when booking, some do not. The ones that say payment can be made on arrival - then we do require payment by credit card or cash on arrival. We would... More

To be honest, this motel exceed my expectation!.. We were there for a birthday party on Sat and couldn't book our usual hotel plus most of accommodation in the area are fully booked. My partner and I were skeptical as we both read other reviews. We both were surprised with the room (we booked a queen room at the back).... More

This is my 3rd or 4th stay at the Sovereign Inn in Figtree, for business, and I always stay a week, sometimes 2 weeks at a time. The location is perfect being only a short walk up to the corner to the Figtree Hotel, and adjacent food shops. It's convenient being on the Princes Highway for access in any direction.... More

Looking forward to a weekend away, we booked this hotel. Walking into our room was disappointing. Whilst clean and tidy, the room was very old fashioned and small. Paper thin walls ensured that we were wide awake and knowing our next door neighbours business very early! The toilet is jammed into a corner of the bathroom with no leg room... More
