We stayed here 1-3 Nov 2014 we got an ocean view room for two nights for $340, the view was amazing. The hotel is old but clean. If you are not looking for anything special than this place is the place to stay..

Oh my where do I start? As soon as you walk in to the hotel you can smell the stale musty "old" scent ineptly concealed beneath sickening air "fresheners". The room was disappointing, the bed rock hard and the bathroom ancient with no exhaust fan. And air conditioner? Hardly! To top it off our tv wouldn't work and the young... More

My wife and I stopped 2 nights, we found the room to be quite at night and very comfortable. The motel wasn't far from the shopping area and NFL stadium and club room for a meal. We had ggod time there and would recommend it to all who want accommodation in Wollongong.

Spent one night here and would happily return. Booked an ocean view room which was simple and clean, slept well. Full width balcony was good, lovely for breakfast . Easy access to ocean pool and esplanade and beach, as well as decent restaurants. It's not flash .. 3 star.. but it's well located and reasonably priced

Stayed here several times over quite a few years and the atmosphere and service has remained consistently good. The rooms are not elaborate but are always clean and comfortable with standard basic amenities that are adequate for normal use. There is a comfortable and friendly bar which is quite conducive to relaxing drinks at the end of the day and... More

Room was quite clean and tidy, with a small kitchenette, TV and table with two chairs. Booked as a twin room, we got a standard size motel room with a queen bed and a single bed jammed in. The single bed was placed in front of the sliding glass door. Air con was ancient so didn't dare to use it,... More

Just a few hours drive south of Sydney is Wollongong a nice little town by the sea. To get there you have the option of driving through the National Park along the cliff tops looking out over the ocean. We stayed at the Boat Harbour Motel located within very easy walking distance of the small harbour. The Motel is clean... More

This motel is well positioned on the seafront. The setting is superb and there is a promenade to walk along. The rooms are basic but quite adequate. The restaurant is excellent and the staff very willing to oblige in any way. We were there for only one night.

Stayed here one night recently as we needed to be in town for a 2 day event for my daughter. The motel could certainly do with a refurb, however was very clean, staff were friendly and the location is great. Step across the road to Wollongong Harbour, walk left or right for great views and plenty of eating options. The... More
