What you’d expect from a motel. Clean and practical. Can park your car outside. It was cold when we were there but air con warmed up the room quickly. Room had kettle etc to make tea. Beds comfy. Just old furniture etc. but if you want a fancy place you need to go to a more expensive hotel

The Windmill Motel is on the Princes Highway at Woonona. The motel is a few hundred metres from the shops at Woonona. There is not a lot around the motel as it is in suburbia. The rooms are a bit dated but they are clean and well presented. The rooms have a microwave, tea/coffee and basic kitchen utensils. The tv had several Foxtel channels. There is ample free parking and the staff were friendly and efficient. The highlight of our stay was the wonderful water pressure in the large shower. 3.5/5 an extra half point for the shower.

This Motel surprised us as was cheap and didn't have high expectations. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The room had a pleasant smell and was spotlessly clean. There is only one basin/ sink in main part. Plenty of mirrors. Good shower. A few basics toaster cutlery etc. Bed was comfortable. Can walk to RSL club.

The Windmill Motel is CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, QUIET and AFFORDABLE. A well located motel, fabulous staff, a great little place to stay when you need accommodation north of Wollongong. Next time I’m in town, this will be where I’m staying
