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, though enough glasses, cutlery and plates for takeaway if you want it. Friendly staff and plenty of parking (though in the open). Basic club style food, though fine and reasonably priced.
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 toast and setting off the fire alarms.
very clean and Quite also great walks along the beach front to light house spectacular sunrise while I was there . View from room was great also looked over the beautiful golf course to beach and second room had view to the mountains would prefer ocean room next visit
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.
Very nice spacious hotel situated in a nice spot on the golf course with nice views of both the course and the beach. Free and easy to access parking was available. Super friendly and efficient staff on both check in and check out. Rooms are spacious and have everything required. Definitely recommend staying and we will be returning back in the future.
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 room right above the TV so the cold air was blowing right at us when we were sitting on a sofa and watching TV. And in order to keep a cool temperature in the bedrooms, we had to set AC in the living room at a low temperature and keep the bedroom doors open. Despite my displeasure of the AC unit placement, I'd still recommend staying at this hotel as it offers a great combination of space, comfortable beds, and a price you have to pay for all of that.
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 beach. On this occasion we didn't make use of the restaurant, so unable to comment. With only 20 rooms this is almost "boutique" accommodation. We found it nice and quiet, unlike other locations we have stayed not far away, but are unsure if this would be different when there is an event at WIN Stadium.
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 sea air and ocean sounds into the room, particularly at night. Golf rounds are available to guests and there is a bar and well priced bistro on the building's first floor. The City Sands is close to good Wollongong restaurants and there is a popular Thai restaurant just a couple of minutes walk away. The staff at this place are genuinely very friendly and obliging to the extent that they go out of their way to please. I give an excellent mark for excellent value for money and service.
