“terrible - dont think about staying there”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

toilet -back of pan broken. smashed grill above shower, shower framework loose, no door handle on shower, shower took 15 minutes to get warn after complaining to management , shower went from warn to extremely hot or cold. No intermediate temperature. On complaining management accused us of not using the shower and laughed. Telephone didn't work properly. Sink taps leaked. Hot water came out of cold water tap base. Old bar of soap stuck to basin . Basin dirty.
Management relied of their lack of English to ignore our complaints but just grinned. Tried to overcharge by stating the deposit paid to Check In was nothing to do with them and check in kept that for themselves. We showed them the written confirmation from Check In stating a deposit had been made. They laughed. We cancelled second night and after considerable argument paid a reduced rate. we asked him if he would stay in a place like this with its problems and he refused to answer. Advice - Stay away from this motel!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

We stayed there last weekend, it is a lovely place. In the centre of Woy Woy town, nice cafe across road, nice restaurants around. We were staying in the room with water front. The view was great, it is a good place for a couple to stay. We were lucky enough cuz the owner just refurnished the motel. New bed, new TV, new everything, but the price was a bargain. Friday and Saturday music from the pubs around was great too! We were sitting at the balcony and enjoying the beautiful view, wine and music. Lovely place, lovely people, lovely weekend, will stay again!

Room Tip: Best rooms are the water front ones, but don't think they have many rooms that have a water view...

We checked in to the motel on 4th August at approximately 3.30 pm and were gone by 3.40 pm after having our money refunded. It was like a bad backpacker hostel with dirty carpets, terrible bed and furniture. The bathroom was awful and one would've needed footwear in the shower to avoid coming in contact with the mouldy tiles. Needless to say I give it a zero rating and would not recommend it in any way. Would like to know where the room pictured above was - we saw nothing that resembled it.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

We stayed 4 nights at this motel from 5th to 9th March. 2013. Yes it is an older style motel, probably needing some updating, but we found our room which was a kitchenette, very clean, the bed was comfortable, area very quiet and the 2 local pubs had strict noise requirements making our stay very harmonious. It is a fantastic location being next to the wharf and step outside for local eateries and a very short walk to the shopping centre and train station from Sydney. Buses also can take you up and down the coast. Great cafe attached to motel with very reasonably priced meals, well cooked and presented. The on-site owners were extremely friendly and helpful and made our stay enjoyable. Priced right and would recommend a stay here. Just to add there is no lift, but only one flight of stairs to rooms.

Room Tip: Room 6 was a kitchenette, no view however would need to ask if view available when booking..

My room was Dirty and stained. The bathroom was a disgrace. The toilet roll holder was broken and the tap spout was completely covered in duct tape. (Hygiene) The duct tape caused the water to spray all over the top of the sink. Not in the sink where it should go. The bed was uncomfortable and the TV was tiny.

This is three star accomodation at best and to me was correctly priced. The TV, WI FI, off street parking, air-con, basin taps (no cold only hot) were dodgy but the location was great. Restaurant underneath, Over the road pub, $3 schooners, TAB, Train station around the corner ($8 and one hour to Sydney), plenty of take away and right beside Brisbane waters which was very nice.
We were there 6 days and never spotted the owners, in fact we only saw the front office girl on arrival and left the keys on the front counter on leaving so in one respect you were never annoyed by anyone. We had a very quiet stay.
Would stay there again as it was what I expected, nothing less, nothing more.
