I like this hotel because it's in the city proper. Rooms were big and it has a little kitchen. Staff were nice and accomodating.We wanted to stay here again last week but it was fully booked. We will stay here for sure again whenever we are going to Wollongong

The rooms were simple but spacious and fine, owners were very kind and welcoming, helpful in answering questions we had. Stayed here for a concert at University of Wollongong so the location was super close and easy to access. Good value for money paid!

The owners were warm, friendly and welcoming. Rooms are small, tidy with very basic necessities. Queen bed was below our comfort threshold. Combined with an enduring musty smell and a bathroom much in need of renovations etc. we will look elsewhere next time round.

The rooms are small and relatively uncomfortable. The bed is like sleeping on a rock. Definitely not worth the $$$ paid. Would only stay here if I had too. The Thai restaurant connected is very good. The receptionist is very accommodating despite the uncomfortable rooms.

Our room was clean but very small.The web photos are misleading and show the rooms in a better light than they actually are. There was no hair dryer or ironing board. The staff were friendly and helpful. Flinders Street is part of the Princess Highway, so a little noisy at times. The motel was full and as there was no...

Only selected one as I cant give a zero. Dog box at motel prices. Mmm might have been to harsh maybe... then again not at all. This is ex student accommodation that should not be advertised as a motel particularly at these prices. We stayed in a very small room with basic double. Hardly space to place our gear. Stayed...

The motel is ex-uni accomodation so the rooms are small and a bit dated but very clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and the restaurant (Thai) was delicious and reasonably priced. We had fellow guests arguing outside our room in the early hours of the morning (2am) but apart from that it was quiet. No road noise at all...

The hotel has a great location and is affordable. Friendly and helpful reception, clean and tidy rooms. Beds were hard but 4 pillows. A/C, fridge, TV. Loved parking directly outside room for free! Would stay again. Back rooms - no road noise.
