beautiful hotel the only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because they are doing large amounts of construction and we weren't advised of this before checking in, so it was a little inconvenient. But overall lovely hotel in a perfect location.

Nice spacious rooms, very clean, with everything you could need. I chose a room with a view over the golf course. Convenient location. Only a short walk to restaurants, cafes etc.I would stay here again.

Response from Michael Z, Guest Relations Manager at Best Western City Sands
Responded 23 Oct 2018
Dear dartan, Thank you for your review albeit under better circumstances. I have corresponded with you by email after the fact apologizing for the builders debris left on the restaurant roof. Dealing with contractors is never easy and the issue has been addressed with the building site manager. In regard to the furniture on the balcony - this is under review. Our guests can still experience wonderful views of the Pacific Ocean and Golf course which has been widely reported as the best Ocean views in Wollongong by our visitors. Apologies for your expectations not being met. Kind regards, Michael

I entered a review for this Hotel in October but it's not displayed?
We need a place within walking distance of town and the "kitchnette" needs to be well equipped so we can prepare meals in our room. Please advise. Thanks.
Only a fridge, toaster and kettle in the rooms.

"High up room overlooking the golf course"

"Ocean view rooms seem best"
"Go for the ocean view"
"I suspect the double rooms have the view of the ocean and the apartments face the other way, but the view was still nice of the mountains."
