Good location near the beach. Nice view overlooking the lighthouse and park. Big parking area next to the motel. Quiet environment. Facilities in the room are complete eventho its a bit basics. Surrounded by many restaurants

I found accomodation generally expensive in Wollongong. Boat Harbour Motel was a good find being competitively priced. The rooms and furniture are dated and need to be updated. This would make me want to return. The kitchenette was tiny and only suitable for making tea or coffee. An upgrade here would make a big difference. There is an abundance of...

Great location! We had a room in the top floor, and our friends were on the 2nd level. Although we didn't have sea view rooms, if you stop on the balcony and looked to your left, there was the harbour. The room itself was clean, and had everything you need, just a little dated.

the hotel is as it says a motel style, i was on the 3rd floor with a good view from the room over the bay and the hotel restaurant is fantastic! is a little more expensive but the food is excellent and has a very nice atmosphere. WiFi was a bit sketchy in certain areas.

Location is nice, but very 1970 place. Looks it, feels it, smells it.... Non working bedlight, toilet, noisy 1970 airconditioner. Narrow double bed (1.40 m). Not really worth the price - even if reduced.

we noticed the air con didn't work. We reported it on our way to a wedding. Upon getting back late, nothing had been done. We slept with the door to balcony open, but made little difference. When we complained in morning, we were just palmed off
