“Home from Home with Private Entrance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

Stayed here because the good serviced apartments were booked and I hadn't heard good things about either the Novotel or central Best Western. It turned out to be an amazing find and fantastic value for money...Margaret met me when I arrived at the house and was really helpful whilst I was there...she even recommended a bar to meet a friend and offered a lift into the centre, which is only 15 mins walk anyway. The room was very clean, had its own private locked entrance to the house, direct access to the pool and also had its own very clean, large bathroom opposite the room. In the morning, Margaret gave me directions for a run, and by the time I got back and had breakfast, I didn't even meet the other guests staying in the other room. I was quite particular about finding somewhere that was clean and also had internet...the bonus about Hilltop Lodge is that it was also better value for money than the standard hotels.

We came to visit family, and greatly appreciated the warm and welcoming atmosphere of this lovely family home. Hilltop Lodge is a very stylish and comfortable place to stay, the room is very neat and clean and the service is exceptional. The outlook (through gumtrees to the ocean) is beautiful and it's close to the centre of Wollongong, the beaches and the mountains. There's a separate guest entrance, meaning we didn't feel that we disturbed our hosts with coming and going in the evening. There were quite a few very healthy breakfast options.
Most importantly the owners (Margaret and Bob) were terrific. They were respectful of our privacy but ready to engage when appropriate. They were very helpful, provided an instant (and healthy) meal when we were too tired to go out on arrival, tracked down personal and restaurant contacts, found a masseur for an aching back ...
I highly recommend Hilltop Lodge and will certainly stay there again when we return to Wollongong.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Robertson room, which has it's own entrance and immediate access to the pool ar...

Margaret and Bob will make you feel welcome with unexpected delights, such as the cheese and fruit plate that greeted us on arrival. The guest suite was pristine and comfortable with an amazing view and cozy bed. Breakfast exceeded expectations and was great with menu choices. Nothing was lacking (okay, maybe a bath nightlight would be nice to find your way at night). We guarantee you will be delighted.

Stayed here with my husband for our first anniversary and we seriously couldn't fault this place. It's located close to central Wollongong and surrounding restuarants. The bed would have to be the most comfortable we have ever come across and the place is exceptionally well kept and clean!! The breakfast was of good variety and most certainly plentiful. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and found the owners very friendly and only to happy to accommodate to our needs.
