“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 19 April 2011

We had a one bedroom apartment at the rear of the building. The apartment was very quiet even on Friday and Saturday night (with the window open). In Wollongong central you really need to be at the rear of the building as it is very noisy at night, sirens wailing etc. . We could walk to restaurants and it was one block to the main shopping centre, the location is very convenient. The bed was comfortable, the combined bathroom, laundry was a reasonable size and the towels were large and soft. The only negatives I could find for this apartment were :
1. shower was over the bath (not a problem if you are in reasonable health)
2 .no free wifi

On check in we discovered we were upgraded to 8 floor which gave us great view of the 5 islands. We would stay here again as were able to walk to shops ,restaurants etc. The kitchen, bathrooms and laundry facilities are great.
However, some of the furnishings are becoming a little tired and the bed in the main bedroom is 2 singles pushed together which is less than comfortable. Also bedroom door needs to be left open to feel aircon at night. The garbage truck which comes early each morning disturbing your sleep is annoying especially since we were on holidays.

The one bedroom we stayed in faced the street and there was a lot of chatter in the street late at night. Ask for a room at the rear. Nevertheless, I would stay here again. I walked almost everywhere and when I didn't, the bus was very convenient and free.
No free wifi, no fitness center, but a huge bathroom with a washer/dryer, and a nice kitchen. At this point in our trip, we were tired of eating out and the grocery store and takeout restaurants are within blocks.

This was our second stay in a 2 bed apartment becuase the property excels with service and is an easy walk to Wollongong Entertainment Centre.

This time we had an 8th floor room with views to the beach and escarpment and heard no one else while we were there. Our room was q q and as there was only the 3 of us ideal (originally it may have been 2 adult couples but my parents went to the Chifley).

Cehck in was quick and efficient and with the zooom parked securely (inc) undercover Guru rested while I did the rush into the city (oh 2 mins) and bought a few essentials for GDs event.

Dinner at Ha Long Bay - Top Notch Vietnamese open at 5pm (esp improtant when you need to be somewhere at 6.30) just don't order too much.

Event over and done withback we traversed through the drunken teenagers and collapsed into bed. be aware reception is closed later in the evening ut in all honesty these are apartments and with a breakfast pack and water in the room and nearby bars open late do you really need someone to smile and say hi when you return at 11pm!

Breakfast...took the lazy opton..was going to cook in room but the menu at lee and me looked adventurous and it was only a short walk down the street. Be aware it is difficult to find as it appears to be a clothing outlet with a few stools on the street. Eggs Benny top level, lovely T2 selection and pancakes or "the roll" worthy of a 5* breakfast. 3 pax less than 20ph!

Negatives.....no pool......oh well never mind.....because it all depends on what you want and usually in the Gong i want what Quest has

We stayed here during the New Years celebrations. The rooms were very spacious and nicely decorated. It had everything you would want. The location was central and close to the mall and restaurants. What stood out though was the friendly service we received. The reception greeted us warmly and was very helpful in directing us to places to eat and what to do. Great place to stay.

Having booked with lastminute for a room with a spa the 3 star (you must be kidding!!) City Beach Motel was $175 for the night. When I got there I turned around and walked straight out. The motel was a dated, filthy DUMP. I found Medina (155) and then Quest($145). No spa but a one bedroom serviced apartment did me fine. Motel wouldn't refund neither would last minute. QUEST gets my vote, even tho its not close to the beach.

My husband and i stayed here to have a quiet and private chrismas. It is really an ok hotel though its not what we expected. The rate is too high for its location, considering its really far from the beach, no great view, no gym, no pool and the bath is pretty ordinary (they have to put profer shower screen to avoid water all over the floor). And also like what they said in other reviews, you really have to open your bedroom door to feel the airconditioning from the lounge.

On the other hand, the staff is very accomodating. The guy reception gave us superb service even if he's by himself. He attended to our needs efficiently and effectively when we asked for some stuff during christmas. The pictures of the hotel in websites are also for real. What you see is what you get. It is a neat and nice apartment though if we go back in the gong, we will not bother staying there again.
