Booked a disabled room 2 weeks prior for 2 nights they gave it to someone else, we got the disabled room the next night but it was no better, the wheel chair would not fit in the bathroom. The manager really didn't see this as a problem. They cleaned the second room in a hurry for us but didn't do...

Unit 31. Clean, friendly staff and different to the rest of the accommodation. Only complaint was no blind on the front door,consequently with the light on any one walking past could see the toilet door and by default anyone going in or out of same. Close to the Wonoona RSL which has plenty of amenities for families with children.

I recently stayed at the windmill motel and would like to warn anyone else that thinks about staying there . I payed $170 for a out dated grubby room with a spa that was that discussing looked and smelt like a blocked sewer when it was turned on . The grout around the bath was thick in black mould ....

Close to almost everything, room was very clean, service was great, enormous breakfast, we only stayed 1 night as we went to a wedding, but would definately stay again. Only disappointment at first was that the bathroom didn't have a hand basin or mirror, had to use the one in the kitchenette, no problem it was only 1 night.

There isn't much to choose from and we were in the area for a birthday. Would stay again but seemed a bit high priced for the quality. The rooms are very dated but we were lucky to be upgraded to one of the refurbished rooms.

At short notice We secured a room. Room clean and the bed comfortable. Lovely big bathroom but NO HANDBASIN. Also, No Mirror in the bathroom. Cleaning teeth and shaving (Hubby) in kitchen sink seemed only option - Yuk. Loved the location and provision of outdoor furniture.

We arrived really late and could hear the pillows calling. Upon calling to confirm availability and then arriving..things went very smoothly. Although somewhat dated, beds are firm, staff are friendly, helpful, and will go the extra mile so your stay is as comfortable as possible. We were on a budget, needed a bed, and a cup of tea, which is...

We went to a christening in Woonoona and was told this motel was just round the corner. So I booked it and was quoted an amount but when we arrived we were told there was no booking but they had room for a greater amount but we agreed on the quoted amount. The room had nice beds and plenty of...

Clean and tidy room. A little bit far from Wollongong central. Restaurants and shops are close by. Lots of choices for take away/delivery meals. Parking on site, right in front of your door. Stayed only for 2 nights and overall it was okay. Nothing fancy but wasn't bad.
