What a home away from home, whilst my husband was attending a business meeting over a couple of days, I was left enjoying the well equiped kitchen and freshening up in the very modern bathroom before heading out to the Gong shops. Very quiet rooms and service at desk was great. Would stay here again.

this trip was a mixture of business and pleasure, and I shared the suite with a friend. This establishment was a pleasure to stay with, being stylish, fabulously clean and offering a wonderful breakfast with lovely service. Just a few minutes stroll to a great 'pub' (deserves a better description), where a delicious dinner could be found at great value.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: my suite was great and the other people from my firm were also impressed with theirs...any room will do!

During a short trip to New South Wales this was our favorite accommodation. The apartments were new, clean and quiet, making our stay most enjoyable.

Service beyond expectations. We needed some paracetamol and the receptionist reached from her own bag when couldn't find in the desk.

We would suggest solar warming for the swimming pool, as it was quite cold (mostly due to unseasonal weather).

We secured a preferential rate which was organised by our friends who were getting married. We avoided the two night minimum stay that is often imposed when staying on a Saturday night. The rooms were enormous, and fully self contained.

Aside from the spacious rooms, the accommodation was conveniently located behind a major pub which was a great place to regroup post wedding.

Whilst it is a little out of the main centre of Wollongong, it's only a $10-$15 cab fare into town.

Hard to fault!

Dear jdmiller83,

Thank you for your kind words, we really appreciate your feedback. You are indeed correct that the hotel is only a small distance from the city center of Wollongong - 4.5kms, which is a small cab fare or quick drive. The free gong shuttle (bus) and Towradgi train station also service the area bringing guests to and from the hotel.

Again, you are right about the Towradgi Beach Hotel being our friendly neighbor - its only 100m door-to-door from ours to theirs for a bite to eat, live music, kids playground and friendly atmosphere.

We hope to see you back at the hotel again in the near future.

Best wishes,

Leigh Evans
General Manager

Great location, 2 train stops North of Wollongong in Towradgi (Towradgi trains station a 10 min walk from the front door). Nice suites, at least the studio I had while exploring the area on some free time after a business trip that took me to Australia. Excellent beaches, nice people, great place to get away.

The room was spacious and clean. The bed was great, nice television, excellent balcony with table & chairs. Room had fridge, microwave, dishes, etc - made a great option for eating in.

Internet access was reasonably priced and fast - great for staying in contact with family back home. Wish I could have had my wife with me on this trip - perhaps next time.

I will look this place up again if I get a chance to return.
