Very good 8.0
A nice clean middle class option in very pleasant area.
Wayne, au1 night business trip
Fair 4.0
needs updating
The room was very old, especially the air con and cabinets. Old Carpets had a heavy deodorised smell. But the bathroom was newly renovated but tiny, the water pressure was fantastic. The bed and linen were excellent and very comfortable. We slept well but will not return .

Hayley, au2 night trip with friends
Fair 4.0
Very old fashioned style motel really needs some serious tlc. Service was fine. Old butter packet on the window cil and a range of bugs. Due to other visitors being noisey got no sleep and had an early fight the next day. Roof and walls are thin. You can hear every little thing. Ok to stay if you don’t need much sleep. Beds were comfy.

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.
