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.

Jamie, au1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
The motel was great! The location was brilliant and very close to everything in town, only a 5 minute walk to the beach hotel and main street. Lovely pool and deck area and the bonus was the direct beach access from the back gate. I loved listening to the waves at night! I will definitely be back and I totally recommend staying there. Thank you for a great stay.
