My wife and I stayed here for one night in late January, 2017 on a 'Groupon' deal. We had a basic room with a queen bed, a window, bar fridge and adequate bathroom facilities. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the room, the cleanliness and the quality of the bedding / towels. For an old converted University dorm,...

This place was amazing. The staff where amazing, and extremely helpful. I felt safe and comfortable here and would recommend it to others. Only downside was that lack of WiFi which was only available in the foyer, but apart from that it was a good experience.

On a Sunday night, after the holidays were over, I paid a rock bottom price for a room that just about met my expectations. Checking in was a reminder that I was in something more like a hostel than a hotel (read and sign a page long contract about what I couldn't do). When I got to my room, I...

This is great value accommodation. We stayed here for a night and were pleasant surprised with the room. They are compact, but if you know that going there then there is no issue. We got there early and the staff let us park downstairs, so that was handy. The room was clean and comfortable, I did turn on the TV...

I was shocked with how much I adored this place because of reading other reviews. I was so happy that our room had a small bar fridge (to keep a chocolate slice) and soft drinks. I loved the air-con which was so helpful when it was 30 degrees. The staff were AMAZING, lovely fellow logged me into a computer which...

This building was built as an Ibis (basic budget hotel) and has since been bought by University of Wollongong to use as a student residence. Apparently when the students are away, the rooms are let out by the Uni like a hotel. That said, the room was very tidy, with all the hotel things normal linen, towels, soap, etc. It...
