Spent a very nice evening here, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The view from our balcony room of the beach and ocean were spectacular and we were greeted with a sensational sunset the next morning. Across the road from the beach and a short walk to Stuart Park. Well worth the visit.

Large well fitted room with great views along North Beach at Wollongong. Wonderful pillow top bed. Ate in lobby lounge in the evening as I did not want a large meal. My serving of potato wedges plus accompaniments would have fed a small family! Breakfast buffet was excellent. Reception staff welcoming and efficient.
