This is a lovely place to stay; the rooms are spacious , comfortable and have great views of the ocean , beyond the golf course. The price is higher than many neighbouring places but it is superior accommodation. The person on the front desk was not the most hospitable but she was competent and bearable.

Ten of us visited for a golf trip. The large, apartment style rooms (separate bedroom and living areas) were large enough for pre dinner drinks for the lot of us in one room. Rooms had expansive views across the golf course to the beach, each with balconies. The kitchenette was only sparsely equipped - no cooking gear or even toaster,...

The hotel room was very spacious and modern. Parking on site was good. I had a lovely mountain view. There were plenty of facilities on site. I enjoyed being able to walk up the road to the busy restaraunt area.

Big spacious rooms. It a little dated inside however bed was comfortable and a top view overlooking the golf course was a bonus. Bedroom did not have a TV which seemed weird being it was a separate room to the lounge and had the space. Has a mini kitchenette but no toaster likely due to too many people burning their...

The accommodation is well situated in the city center, close to lots of restaurants and supermarkets. The ocean view rooms overlook Wollongong beach. Rooms were very clean. Free Wifi available but not very reliable. Would definitely recommend.

The 2-bedroom apartment that we got was just huge, probably the biggest one I've seen, and in addition to that it had a terrace. Each apartment consisted of 2 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a dinette with a dining table. The only thing I didn't like was the placement of an AC unit. It was in the living...

We had two rooms overlooking the golf course, with generous balconies. The rooms/suites are generally well-appointed with reasonable amenities, the only let-down was the toilet paper which must be the cheapest possible and the small size of the toiletries.. With plenty of parking, the location is perfect for accessing many restaurants (5-10 minutes away) and less than 5 minutes from...

The rooms here are enormous, with separate kitchenette and dining area, sitting room, bedroom and extremely spacious bathroom. It is all very clean and well appointed, with the sitting and bedrooms having large sliding windows, which open for access to a sizable balcony, which overlooks part of the golf course and the ocean beyond. Leaving the bedroom window open allows...
