Best Western City Sands

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Plenty of room in a generously sized family 2 bedroom suite. Beds were comfy, plenty of spare blankets and a heater that warmed the apartment quickly. 2 huge bathrooms. Could easily stay here for a few days comfortably with a large family. Room was city side but lights at night were pretty so not having an ocean view was fine. Easy walking distance to local restaurants, grocery shop, cafes, beaches and park. Basic cooking equipment - microwave and small fridge. A toaster in room would have been awesome. We didn't eat any meals at the golf club so can't comment on quality of food. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go again.

Great place to stay. Beds comfy. Could walk to town or free shuttle. Taxi $9 from centre. Large room (stayed in the two bedroom). Nice lounge to relax and have a drink at. Great value for us. Very helpful staff.

Enjoyed the outlook from the ocean room . Spacious and comfortable beds and comfortable setting. Enjoyed the in house dinning and bar staff making good cocktails. Quiet cosy rooms slept well on the queen size beds. Happy to stay there again.

This was my first stay at the Best Western City Sands, and I was pleasantly surprised by the value for money. The room was much larger than I expected and next time I stay, I'll make use of the extra space. The food from the brasserie was great and the views over the golf course and ocean were sensational.

I travel to Wollongong for business on a regular basis and thought I'd try this hotel for a change from the usual places I stay at. Upon arrival I was greeted by a grumpy lady at the desk that obviously didn't want to deal with me at all. After getting the key and going to my room I thought I'd have a shower, that lasted all of one minute before the drain backed up and started filling the bottom of the shower. When I sat down to relax and watch tv the people In the next room arrived and I could hear them talking which was louder than the sound on my Tv due to the interconnecting door between us, why they put us next to each other is far beyond me as the hotel was almost empty. So I sat in the bedroom and then when I thought I'd go to sleep i couldn't as they had put me in the room near the lift that was making all sorts of banging noises as it goes up and down. The location and parking is what drew me to stay here but I will definitely be going back to the usual places I stay while in The Wollongong area

This was a excellent choice for us. Part of the Wollongong golf club, the rooms were spacious, comfortable and well equiped. The bar and restaurant had great views over the golf course. A short walk to the beach and restaurants in the CBD this was a great location

A very nice motel close to the centre of Wollongong a beautiful view of the ocean and golf course. The room was excellent and the food in the dining room was great and affordable. The staff are always smiling and happy to help.

We stayed a Saturday night in a one bed apartment over looking the golf course and the ocean. The room has been refurbished and is very well appointed. We enjoyed watching the golfers tee off. Below on the first level is a great cafe and restaurant. On arrival we were met with a very friendly receptionist. Very comfortable digs and would have no hesitation in returning again. Within walking distance to restaurants and cafes.

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.
