Friendly stuff, motel is ok some parts can have improvements for example the inside door that was no more lockable on our room, just the fly lattice was lockable.

Great location.
Parking isn't the best but that is generally an issue everywhere these days. Have never been to a town where paid parking is everywhere though. Must be the councils main income, pitty. Luckily this complex is in walking distance to everywhere, even with mild fitness up to the lighthouse. Fantastic walk. Great location, quiet and very friendly people you deal with. Thanks for the stay, very enjoyable, easy booking, hassell free. Thumbs up.

Little gem with secret access to beach
Fantastic spot with secret beach access. Bed needs a mattress topper and comfort would be great. Staff friendly. Value for money

pleasant stay
I was quite comfortable staying at Wollongbar Motel. I was particularly pleased that I could hear nothing from other rooms. This indeicated that nobody else could hear my TV, as I watched cricket until late at night.
