It is part of a golf club which means it has a bar and cafe/restaurant which was great for a few drinks after the game.

      Best Western City Sands Wollongong”

      The view is magnificent. The position is great. The staff are professional. Accommodation is very good

      The stay at Best Western City Sands was really good. Even though we live in the region I was not aware of this hotel. It is situated within the golf club and views over the golf links and out to the ocean are fabulous. The staff were very professional and friendly, the rooms were very clean. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was lovely food at a very reasonable price. The room we had was an apartment type room with a sofa bed (very comfortable) and two way bathroom. It is great for overnight or a longer stay with kitchen facilities

      our stay was on easter weekend 2012. we were very happy with our room, apart from little things like broken flyscreen, flickering light on the balcony or lack of fan in the bathroom, everything else was great. the apartment had a kitchenette which was great for preparing snacks. the bed was comfortable with good size of the covers. would definitely come back, for the special price we paid

      Our stay in the City Sands Hotel”

      Neat,tidy, very clean,polite staff,comfortable beds.

      Our overnight stay was comfortable with good facilities in our room such as crockery,cutlery etc. However no toaster was available and only a limited supply of milk. The traffic noise from nearby Corrimal Street was disturbing,particularly from motor bikes,semi trailers,loud exhausts. The western side would also be very hot in summer and suggest external awnings/shades although air conditioning was available inside in the TV lounge but not the bedroom.

      Location and Room Size

      This is a nice hotel. I really liked their location which is right next to the beach and within walking distance to the lighthouse, beautiful views in the evening. I was also pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms we were staying. We did not experience much of the food but really enjoyed our stay nevertheless. They were kind enough to extend our checkout time as well when requested.
