Reviewed 8 February 2017 via mobile

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, you would not otherwise have known. Definitely no complaints here, it was more than suitable for a quick 1 night getaway with free basement car parking and walking distance to shopping centres, malls, pubs, clubs and the ocean.

This is not a luxurious hotel by any stretch of the imagination, but ticks all of our boxes for convenience, cleanliness and price. Recommended and would likely return in the future!

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 found the airconditioning turned off after 3 minutes, and when I went back to reception they said "Yes, we always tell people to just turn it off at the plug on the wall, and then turn it back on again after a minute". Although that did fix it for me, the plug was about 2.5m off the ground, so involved me standing on a swivel chair. Not good - and even worse when it turned itself off 2 hours later after I'd gone to bed. The lifts were broken when I was there, and inadequate signage to the service lifts meant I was left a bit lost to even find my room.
Overall, this might be okay as student accommodation, or as a backpacker hostel, but it's really not up the standard of a hotel, and I'm not sure how it is retaining it's 4/5 rating on TripAdvisor. I would not stay here again.

One night only stay and got a good long sleep.Quiet room with frig and tea and coffee.Easy walk to the eateries nearby which is a bonus.The hotel is owned by the University of Wollongong and the profits go back to the community ( i am guessing) but still its very well run and a good place to stay in the Gong.

The hotel is located across the street from the crown plaza which is very helpful you can leave your car parked at the hotel because everything is walking distance.
