Bathrooms are ooold as is the whole establishment. External door lock was inadequate, you could see the room had been broken into at some stage. Window cannot be opened for fresh air. Bathroom drain had an unpleasant smell.

We stayed here for the night as it was close to an event we attended. The motel is extremely outdated, basic and stuffy. The beds are small too. Our room had a double and a single. They are in dire need of a refurb.

Thank you for your review. As you mentioned, we are an older style motel and this is reflected in the pricing. We provide clean, comfortable, basic accommodation for those looking for an more affordable option when choosing a motel in the Wollongong area.

Please do not expect a new complex. The Highway was once the major nth/sth route in and out of Sydney. The complex was built while this was a major traffic route. The Units are clean and provide excellent value for money. This was my 2nd stay and being over either side of Xmas day I was not expecting much. The...

Stayed in Wollongong to watch some country cricket games. The place was central where we needed to be. It was made up of older buildings, but clean, comfortable and quiet - suited us perfectly. Easy access and close to everything.

The room had everything we needed and was bigger than many other motel rooms. It also had a nice garden outside and a resturant with great homemade food. The dinner was great! Also, the motel-owners were very sweet and kind to us.

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.
