Fair 4.0
Last stay here.
We have stayed here before as it is very close to the city and Wollongong seafront. I dropped an article of clothing on the floor and looked under the bed the area was extremely dirty. There was no toilet paper holder or toilet paper rolls in the bathroom, i can’t recall having ever being faced with facial tissues to serve as an alternative, housekeeping provided a roll on request. We won’t return.

Lovely views
The motel is ideally placed close to the harbour and has terrific views of the water. The bathroom is only basic, but the room is spacious and the beds comfortable. Service was excellent. Thank you Boat Harbour Motel.

Great location near Wollongong Harbour.
Boat Harbour Motel was perfect for our stay. We had a family wedding at City Beach Function Centre which was an easy walk from the Motel. Room was reasonable price, older style but clean and a good size, bed was comfortable. We booked 2 City View Rooms but we still had an ocean view from our balconies. Our rooms were on the North Side of the Motel. There is also a restaurant at the Motel. We could walk to Wollongong Harbour, North Wollongong Beach, cafes and nightlife.
