Booked this twin accommodation by phone as we were visiting my Mum in Figtree Private Hospital. My friend had spent 6 hours travelling by coach to get here. We paid on arrival and also got two meals to be sent to the room. I mentioned I was going to get some food for my dogs and feed them while Tina... More

Thank you for your review. As with the majority of motels, we do not allow dogs on site (except for Service Dogs) as it does disturb other guests . After you checked in you then mentioned that you had 7 dogs in your van. After parking the van across the road - right next to a neighbours bedroom window, the... More

First of all non of the places in this area are good value for money they are all overpriced due to a shortage of accommodation meaning places can charge what they like. That being said this was one of the only places available with a family room when we needed to book unless we wanted 5* It's an old building... More

Thank you for your review. This an older style motel, however, we do take pride in the fact that it is clean, comfortable and larger rooms - as you mentioned. We do have a number of workers stay with us and I am disappointed to hear that you were disturbed by their talking outside in the evening. If this occurs... More

Our room was clean and bathroom appeared to have been updated but facilities are old with small rooms and thin walls. Staff were generally friendly and helpful, location is a bit out of the way and had some difficulty with access to busy road at front. Wifi was free and breakfast very good.

Bathroom horrible and smelly. Room was clean but smelled like old cigarettes. Stay there if your desperate or with a group of blokes and dont really care about where you sleep. Easy to get into town, bus stops out the front if you dont have a car, so it aint all bad

We had to stay in the Wollongong area for a night and this was one of the few motels available. We could only get a twin room which was unfortunate because the beds were very small. There was no central light in the room which also smelt musty. On the positive side, we were towards the rear of the motel... More

Stayed here with 2 colleagues for a work conference at the uni. Very handy for that just a 5 minute drive away and pleasant enough location. Bar restaurant 5 minute walk away plus the usual take always and a small Westfield. Friendly staff and clean, which with budget places is always the key factor. So, would recommend for uni visits...
