medium size room. Large TV and bigger than usual fridge. Shower and toilet in separate room to hand basin and kitchen nook so 2 people can use the bathroom at the same time, very convenient. Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Our towels were changed and room cleaned daily. Table and 2 chairs handy for meals and office work.

Bathrooms are ooold as is the whole establishment. External door lock was inadequate, you could see the room had been broken into at some stage. Window cannot be opened for fresh air. Bathroom drain had an unpleasant smell.

We stayed here for the night as it was close to an event we attended. The motel is extremely outdated, basic and stuffy. The beds are small too. Our room had a double and a single. They are in dire need of a refurb.

Stayed in Wollongong to watch some country cricket games. The place was central where we needed to be. It was made up of older buildings, but clean, comfortable and quiet - suited us perfectly. Easy access and close to everything.

The room had everything we needed and was bigger than many other motel rooms. It also had a nice garden outside and a resturant with great homemade food. The dinner was great! Also, the motel-owners were very sweet and kind to us.
