The layout of the room was odd and awkward. A small bedroom area with a small table and two chairs tucked in on one side of the bed. A door led to a sort of utilities room which serves the tea/coffee making area, fridge, cupboard for hanging clothes and extra pillows etc... and the sink to wash hands after going...

I've put off writing this report because, quite frankly, I didn't think anybody would believe me, however, after reading so many other bad reports, I decided to "put my two bob's worth" in anyway .After driving through from Tenterfield (800km) we were looking for a place to "lay our weary heads". Had the GPS set for another motel in Woolongong,...

Very convenient and central to where we needed to be (win entertainment Centre). Bed was very small and place seemed old. Check in was simple and quick. Noise from highway was fine also considering it is so close. Overall was fine for a two night stay :)

Cleaning...just ok..a few hairs in thr basin and shower is not a good start. Accommodation in Wollongong is difficult and often booked out..yes hence...

Stayed one night with a friend in mid September. The hotel was easy to find and had ample parking. Reception was very slow when I checked in, took at least 10 minutes (booked and paid online so it should've taken less than a minute). The room was cosy, had tea and coffee making facilities and a nice shower. Beds were...

Reviewed 3 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

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...

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...
