Loved waking up to the sounds of the ocean, and the bird life on the golf course. Easy walk into town centre along the boardwalk.

Spacious!! Clean!! Well maintained!! Disappointed: No air con in bedroom. It was stuffy with bedroom door closed as we had an adult using sofa bed. A ceiling fan would have greatly helped.

The air conditioning didn’t work and the lady that I advised when I checked out wasn’t too phased by it. Very disappointing, especially when it cost me $230 for one night!

Spacious rooms. Bar & lounge & restaurant lovely overlooking golf course. Great cocktails & live music. Only down side was very poor signage outside the club, which made the hotel hard to find, as it's located inside the club so we drove past a few times.

I have stayed here for 11+ weeks in the past 14mts. In that time the standards have dropped to the point where I will unfortunately never stay here again. It’s unfortunate giving the location and potential. It’s plain, dirty and cold now. No value at all.

I don't have any interest in golf but this is where I will be staying when in Wollongong from here on, all the staff were brilliant.
