This place is a gem. If it was a flash place you would not be able afford the room rate. So for what you get, it's peaceful surroundings, the smell and sounds of the sea, plus the access to the harbour, rock pools, beaches, seafood eateries and access to the city. You would be mad not to want to stay...

Helpful and friendly staff made our Christmas break really special. Large ocean view room with a double and single bed, small kitchenette and wonderful powerful and hot shower in the bathroom. Recently updated rooms make this place a must if you want to stay in Wollongong. The Anchorage restaurant downstairs is also fabulous.

The location doesn't get any better than this! Absolutely lovely staff, a really pleasant family friendly environment. Well located on the boat harbour, close to the CBD, restaurants & the beach. This gorgeous little motel is Wollongong's best kept secret.

The Boat Harbour Motel is correctly rated 3 star and has three levels. The furniture in the rooms and bathrooms are a little outdated, but all in good order and functional. Good quality bed and I found my room had plenty of space, except the bathroom which was a little cramped, but had a large shower cubicle with good hot...

Motel is a little run down but location is brilliant. We had an ocean room view for $160 a night which is very reasonable. We decided to have breakfast in the room on the following morning which was excellent. First class. I think the place has new owners who were very helpful and a pleasure to do business with. Congrats...

Room really spacious, microwave, utensils etc. we wanted to have dinner at their restaurant but alas it doesn't open on Sunday. Perfect place for a...

Rooms and amenities exactly as can be expected of this price range. Rooms clean, tidy, quiet. The bonus is being right at the harbour close to walking tracks, working fishing trawlers, food, wine, play.
