Back in the day this motel was The Top venue for parties and the best motel in town, by far. Sadly it has struggled to keep up and still is. The website highlights the recent renos but this has just brought it up to a standard some way below certain newer places you can stay in Wollongong.
For our stay this weekend we were ecstatic to be greeted by that great north beach view, and some funny friendly cockies on the balcony. But later, reality bit as we could not sleep properly due to the over-soft beds and the noise from fellow guests laughing and playing music until 1am which reverberated down the corridors. We were also on edge because only one lift was working. If that one failed, we’d be faced with an 8 storey climb down with our suitcases. The best thing is the location alongside the beach and handy for the free #55 bus.
We will return to the south beach area next time.More
