Stayed at the family apartments on three occasions over the last two years. Staff were great. Facilities were always clean. Kids loved the pools and tennis court. The apartments were spacious and comfortable. Short drive to anything you may need. We are definitely going back. At last we have found a place to stay for our annual holiday without the unwanted hassles and headaches. Keep up the great work guys.

Room Tip: The family apartments are great value.

We booked disabled room for my wife who is partially disabled and we were not disappointed. Room very well laid out beautifully clean and plenty of room, with lovely view of the golf course. Staff extremely helpful and parking at the door. Minor drawback was no exhaust fan in the bathroom.

I booked the Comfort Inn on the net, but was not disappointed when I checked in.
A helpful lady at the desk was efficient and gave me fresh milk for my refrigerator, then sold me on eating in the Restaurant. The room was a good size and had been recently revamped though curiously the bed had been moved against another wall, leaving the reading lights like orphans- Never mind the room was sparkling clean, and well equipped with large flat screen TV, desk, plenty of power points to charge laptop & phone. Exploring further I found a large wardrobe with iron & ironing board, together with a selection of teas, coffees, 3 packs of shortbread biscuits and even more fresh milk. The amenities included a bath, with shower over and the usual toiletries. Everything was sparkling clean and the towels were really fluffy.
In the restaurant the menu was limited as they had a big crowd at lunchtime, but I could not fault the steak, chips & salad.
Located off the main highway, adjacent to a golf course and a short stroll to the ocean & Lake Illawarra, this motel is ideal, quiet and inexpensive.
I would recommend it.

Stayed here last X-mas during our visit to Wollongong and surroundings on the way from Sydney to Melbourne. Not really happy with the customer service and had a booking mix up as well, not even close to the service that brand Comfort Inn offers normally.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

The rooms were great, had everything you needed and were comfortable. Parking right out the front (you have to be quick), and a great view of the golf course. Restaurant was first class, you won't be disappointed although desserts need a description, waitress was unsure of what they were aswell. Breakfast was pricey but had everything you needed. Rooms were serviced daily also. Nice and quiet other than a whirring noise in our room, but bearable.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Comfort In Fairways. In June 2012, a group of us stayed there as our sons were playing basketball at the Snakepit in Wollongong and found it very accommodating. In early March this year we returned for the same reason. A couple of families stayed in family rooms which by all accounts were great. My family and another were offered a 3 bedroom apartment as there weren't anymore family rooms available and we were so glad that we agreed to take it. The apartment slept the 8 of us comfortably. The best thing about it was the private courtyard with a BBQ. It was fantastic. We had a great couple of nights relaxing in our own space. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. There was a huge living area and flatscreen TV to entertain the kids. We will definately be booking Room 122 again.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 122 if you have a large group. With the private courtyard and BBQ it is well worth it!!

The motel and room was modern and well kept. It also had lots of extra's such as pool and tennis court for kids. The views overlooking the golf course was quite nice and peaceful. Would stay here again
