Very good value for money. In perfect location. And friendly services. We left a few belongings behind and they were tracked down and handed back straight away. Rooms are satisfactory for short stays and very clean on arrival

I have stayed previously at this hotel for business. New managers are lovely and very helpful. Its great to have the restaurant up and running again. Rooms are dated but clean and you feel safe. Managers are happy to advise you of local attractions to help make your stay worth the while.

Managers were very friendly and helpful, advised us of local fishing spots and always willing to help out. Beautiful garden out the back. Rooms were very clean and tidy. The cleaner was so friendly and helpful and very good at her job! Walking distance to Westfield shopping mall. free Wi-Fi and BBQ facilities were very useful!

For: Service was friendly and helpful. Against: Smoke alarm started beeping at 4AM - every couple of minutes, and stopped about 6AM. Flat battery? Whatever the reason it didn't contribute to a sound sleep. Motel is showing its considerable age despite a couple of "renovations".

Thank you for your review. We do apologise for the battery in your room and the disturbance to your sleep.. They are changed as daylight saving starts and finishes. The Manager would have addressed this as soon as you advised at check out but unfortunately too late for you. Again our apologies. More

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.
