Positive Reviews

Conveniently close to Wollongong city centre.

Staying at this motel puts you just a short ten minute drive from the centre of Wollongong, and attractions like the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre. Closer still is the Figtree Grove Shopping Centre, which is just a ten minute walk away.

Handy option for people on tight budget.

The room rates here are very reasonable because the motel is just out of the city centre. You'll have everything you need for a comfy night's sleep and you won't have to spend over the odds.

Staff do everything they can to assist you.

The people running this motel do an excellent job and really do their best to make you feel welcome. They are happy to share ideas on things to do in the area and will always deal with any requests you have.

Negative Reviews

The free Wi-Fi is a bit hit or miss.

Staying connected to the internet while staying here can be a bit of a pain. The free Wi-Fi has a habit of dropping out and sometimes you can't connect at all. Don't expect to be streaming movies or downloading music.

Thin walls makes it easy to hear outside noise.

This property is right next to a main road and the traffic noise can sometimes be disturbing because of the lack of soundproofing in the rooms. Even worse is when you have a noisy neighbour, so pack earplugs if you want to get an early night.

The quality of this accommodation is poor.

This motel is pretty rundown and needs some refurbishment to bring it back up to a proper standard. Faulty appliances and worn out furniture needs to be replaced before guests start to complain.
