Had family stay here and it was just lovely though the rooms are a bit outdates. By far the best full service hotel in the area. I would suggest an ocean view room and breakfast overlooking the beach - can;t beat that.

The Hotel may be a little dated but it lacks nothing in terms of friendliness, services and quality. Forget that Wollongong was previously known for industry and coal mining - its now a vibrant beach side city virtually on the edge of Sydney - an easy 70 minute drive (and well worth taking the tourist route). We only stayed two...

Hi, Yes we are just on the edge of Sydney, far enough to get away but close enough for a short getaway. The beaches down here are great and you can find one for any of your needs whether it be a great surf spot or a relaxing swim. Kind Regards,

I stayed two nights at this hotel as part of a work conference. Beautiful views of the beach and surrounding areas. It's a little dated but very comfortable beds and a clean spacious room. It's in a great position, a very bus service right out side the door on weekends and takes you up to the local shops. Our conference...

Hi, Your great feedback is greatly appreciated. The free bus runs 7 days a week every 10 minutes and we are lucky enough to have a stop right outside the hotel. Hopefully your next stay with us will be a wonderful weekend away. Kind Regards,

I was only here for about 12 hours total...for a quick business meeting. It rained during my stay so I couldn't get to the beach, but I had a good view of the beach even though I didn't have a beach front room. Room was very comfortable. Mini fridge, sitting area, comfortable bed. The hotel has a bike rental kiosk...
