Positive Reviews

It's got a good location

The hotel is centrally located in the Wollongong area and is within walking distance to many shops, markets, restaurants, and pubs. You can also walk to several entertainment options and the stadium, as well as the beach.

Has some nice amenities at a nice price

The free car park is a treat and the parking is secure and safe. The rates are incredibly affordable and some rooms even have refrigerators which save on expense of eating out for every meal. The staff are very pleasant.

A pleasant stay

The rooms do provide a comfortable night's sleep and are spacious.The staff members are very pleasant and work hard to give a good stay.

Negative Reviews

Just the basics

The decor is older and it's easy to see rips, stains, and tears on the bedding and linens. The cups don't match and the lighting is quite dim. The bedding is thin and the beds and pillows very firm, instead of cushiony. You won't get extra blankets and the TVs are quite small. The rooms don't have soundproofing and you'll be able to hear street noise and noise from neighbouring rooms. Also, the refrigerators are quite loud and can be disturbing.

The hotel that time forgot

The hotel is outdated and could use a general updating. It's an older property and those wrinkles and wear and tear show on the building and on the grounds around the hotel. Also, there is no Wi-Fi service available and the TV often doesn't work.

Dust bunnies

While the rooms are hygienically acceptable, the cleaning doesn't seem to extend to the corners of the rooms or under the bed. A closer inspection will show dust and cobwebs all about
