Very conveniently located just of the main street and short walk to cafes. The rooms where large and very clean. Some of the fixtures could be updated. Swipe Card System for entering you room. Note that swipe cars are very sensitive to being near a mobile phone. I would stay again

I lived in the local area for 30 years (and my parents are still locals) and never knew this hotel was here but I certainly do now! It will be my go-to whenever I am in Shellharbour. The rooms were very clean and spacious with great amenities including thick, soft towels and stark white bedding and even a full size... More

Stayed here for a week while visiting people in the Warillia area. The Motel is in a great location and is a short walk to all the cafés, restaurants and bar on the main street through Shellharbour Village. The room was equipped as you would expect a motel room to be with tea/coffee making facilities, two Tv's and a huge... More

I stayed here for two nights when on a business trip. I had a large comfortable room which was quiet at night. The bathroom was enormous and had a corner spa. It was all spotless! It is right around the corner from the makn street and near shops, cafes and pub. Def stay here again.

We stayed one night. We were comfortable. Rooms and bathrooms are big, with a double sofa and a little dining table. Ceilings are very high, giving a nice roomy feel. Reception recommended Pacino's Cafe in the Stella Maritz shops in Mary Street. http://pacinoscafe.com.au/ We didn't use the Thai restaurant, but the local people did, and it smelt very nice. The...

The room was perfectly fine. We had not booked to stay there but were informed by tourist information that rooms were available here. The receptionist (male) was downright rude and if I wasn't so hot and tired I would not have bothered trying to get a room there. I asked to see the room before committing to staying which he...

Motel run by the Gestapo. Upon check in I was informed that I would need to have both key cards in power slot to enable the aircon. Then when I asked Mr perfunctionary (manager /owner?) If this meant that on this extremely hot day, if we left the room to go out for dinner we could not have the room... More

OMG, hell hath no fury like a large woman (her choce of words), with a broken foot (not supported by plaster cast or moon boot) and who on making the booking DID NOT request ground floor room. Being human, I guess my "perfunctory attitude" was the reflection of her hostility on being informed that no ground floor rooms were available... More

After driving down from Sydney and finding nothing that appealed to us in Wollongong we drove past this Motel but were put off by the Pink paint. We drove around to the information site to find it had just closed but were lucky when the attendant stopped to ask if we needed help. She recommended the Shellharbour Village Motel and... More

I was attend a friends wedding just out of Shell Harbour and chose to stay at the Shellharbour Village Motel. The room was very clean, wifi was available for purchase (which wasn't too badly priced and quick enough) and the bed was comfortable. Being summer in Australia it was hot - so the large air conditioning unit in the room... More
