I would probably stay here again but would be disappointed if the furniture isn't upgraded soon particularly the Sofa Bed. If you need to use a sofa bed stay at a different hotel. My parents had a better night the day before in one of the single rooms. We have stayed here in the past a number of times but... More

We stayed at the golf club for a week having one of the apartments with a balcony overlooking the golf course and ocean, magic. The staff are terrific especially Dave from Chesterfield and Babs who helped printing out boarding cards, thank you to you both. The apartments are a pleasant change from being stuck in a bedroom. The hotel is... More

This is a nice hotel. I really liked their location which is right next to the beach and within walking distance to the lighthouse, beautiful views in the evening. I was also pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms we were staying. We did not experience much of the food but really enjoyed our stay nevertheless. They were kind... More

We love to stay here when visiting Wolllongong. The staff are freindly and the accomodation great. The Hotel is easy walking distance to the beach, the Crown Street mall and many of the city's best restaurants. The apartments are lovely and spacious with separate living and with great views of the Illawarra escarpment or the sea. Would recommend this hotel.
