Stay here once a year while visiting family nearby. We were in a different section this time to previous years, in the south eastern corner off Shoalhaven St.
As fans of my reviews will know, the comfort and welfare of my vehicle is my main concern when choosing accomodation. We were advised to park in the carpark off Shoalhaven St, which i didn't know existed. It's a pretty good carpark, bit tight to drive around, but has some nice single spots between poles and walls etc, so it's pretty good, and another great option if the other car park is full, or the good spots are taken up.
Room was ok, not sure if this section is a bit older than the other area we normally stay in, or if after another year, it's starting to look a little tired. But it was very clean, which is the main thing. Also had some ocean views which were nice, not that we spent much time in our room during the day.
Only issues we had were the blind let a lot of sun in in the mornings. Not too good if you want a sleep in. And we had been up early on the first day, so went to bed early and there was a lot of noise coming from the restaurant. We're pretty heavy sleepers, but if you're a light sleeper and you're there on a Saturday night, maybe ask for a room in a different area.
Bed was an actual King, or the join in the middle wasn't as noticable, so that's good. Been one of my gripes with this place in the past.
We had a package which included breakfast and a $50 voucher for the restaurant. Breakfast was pretty good. Busy on the Sunday morning, they were having trouble keeping up with the hot food. Monday was much quieter, but it meant the hash browns were a bit soggy. Hard to please aren't i? They do have a pancake machine which my wife loves.
Had dinner one night in the bar/restaurant. My wife had a headache so we just had a quick bite, burger for me which was very nice, and nacho's for the wife which were a bit soggy, too many beans. Service was good, quick and friendly.
Staff were all very good, pleasant, helpful etc.
Will most likely stay here again next year, although we are noticing it is getting quite expensive now. We first chose to stay here as it was cheaper and better than most of the offerings in Wollongong, but i'm starting to wonder whether that is still the case. Will try to visit at a more off-peak time next year perhaps.
