The hotel is a bit dated so overpriced for its decor. Atrium is nice, but rooms less so. Best thing is its location right on the beach at North Wollongong. Restaurant closed until later in the month, however some nice ones within a few minutes walk.

The location of the hotel and the view from our room was fabulous. Sadly that is the only good thing I have to say about this hotel. It needs a TOTAL refurbishment, it is so old and tired! Everything about it shrieks of the 80's and nothing appears to have been done since then. I look at the reviews now...
