Very impressed with this place , rooms are spotless ,beds are comfortable,one of the largest shower recesses I've ever found , it has easy parking and serves a hot breakfast in the dining room . Manager was very helpful and made me feel very welcome . I really don't think you could go past this place , it's much better than other places I have stayed in Wollongong at higher rates than this. Wollongong/port Kembla always seem to be higher priced than many places I've stayed,so make sure you shop around for rates . I think you will go a long way before you will beat this place

Stayed: October 2016, travelled solo

A very old hotel would of been a grand hotel in it's day
Must say vey clean .
Wi-Fi didn't work at all,
Paper thin walls got to hear the person next door snore all night
The traffic from the road didn't help either
You had to make your coffee next to the toilet didn't like that at all

Stayed: September 2016

The motel is situated in a pretty locality. The room we had was very small and there was no window so no natural light. The bathroom was very tight for space and the exhaust fan switch was hidden behind a sliding door= steamy bathroom. Smokers on the verandah meant that the non smoking rooms smelled of cigarette smoke

Room Tip: Book ahead and ask for a room with a window

We stayed for one night - thankfully. I asked the manager about noise from outside and was assured noise was not a problem. Well we heard most of the passing traffic until we stuffed a spare blanket at the foot of the door to block out noise. But that didn't stop the drunks from the local pub finding the bench next to the room door and waking us at 3:30am
Mattress was basically cloth covered springs and the pillows were more like pieces of felt.
I asked the manager to book a taxi when we checked in and when it did not arrive at the requested time checked to enquire why and he had forgotten.......
That does it for me............wont be back.
Wifi was weak and slow if you could connect.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back don't believe the manager when he says the rooms at the front are quiet

Thank you for your review. Please accept our apologies that your experience with us was not to the standard we aim for. We are addressing the issues mentioned in your comments. Unfortunately our manager was busy at the time you needed the cab called & we do apologise for that, however he did call straight away when this was mentioned and thankfully it only took a couple of minutes to get there, hopefully not delaying you too long from your destination.

Stayed for a week on a work trip.
From the outside the place looks a little run down, the rooms are pretty much the same. However the rooms have everything you'd expect for the price; flat screen TV, aircon, fridge and microwave. The staff are very good, the food from the restaurant is good old fashioned home cooking and very nice. The complimentary biscuits in the room are probably the best I've had on my travels.
The big negative is road noise but a set of ear plugs will fix that.
Overall respectable hotel and I will stay again.
