We needed to travel to Wollongong at short notice to visit a gravely ill relative over the Easter period. The Elsinor was one of the few places available at short notice and at a reasonable price. We booked a spa room. The location was close to family. Staff were friendly and advised us of places to go for a meal...

Stayed at Elsinor Motel Lodge for 2nights to visit some friends in Wollongong (12minutes drive from the hotel). It wasn't hard to find and thanks to Mr.NavMan. When we checked in the owner/receptionist was so friendly and nice and the paper I needed to sign was already prepared. We got in the room and it was good with 1 queen...

This place was great for a few nights. It is not the Ritz but the welcome was fabulous. The Manager, (Pete) was extremely helpful and friendly. We were made to feel special and the food he cooks is well worth it. The rooms are clean and tidy and comfortable. It is inexpensive and well worth the money

This motel is located one block back from the highway so it was not noisy. The entire decor is very old but neat. It is a nice little throw back to days gone by. I traveled with my family and we stayed for one night so it suited our purposes. The bunk bed in our room was creaky and noisy....

We stayed at the Elsinore in Dapto for a family get together. Our room had 2 double beds which were quite comfortable the room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was a little dated but clean. Our family had 3 rooms all next to each other. I would stay there again.

We missed out on 2 nights in an airbnb closer to the beach, so had to settle for the Elsinor until the next day. The staff was not happy that we arrived just after the office closed, even though we'd called ahead. The room was dingy, I killed a cockroach, but didn't see any more. We checked in, made our...

Stayed here as there was nothing else available. Rooms are REALLY old and not very nice. Was a three star but priced more like a 4. The restaurant didn't seem to be open while we were there. The pool was nice but the surrounds were dirty and had pool chemicals spilled where they prepare/store them (not so good with little...

Its clean, its welcoming, Administration was so friendly and professional, it has all, the location, size of the room, it feels like you enter in your own unit of residence. Great value for money and time of stay, as me and my family stayed on New Year Eve. Has heated indoor pool, wifi and private parking, ... Definitely coming back😉...

VERY old hotel. Stayed here 3 nights with my husband while attending an event in nearby Wollongong. Outdated decor and amenities, but clean and comfortable enough. 2 out of 3 nights quiet, last night could hear person in next room snoring all night & then talking & smoking on the balcony at 3am = bad nights sleep. Thin walls indeed....
