Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was one of the best we've had in a motel. The location is next to the town centre - walk around the corner. Werri beach is 5 minutes drive. We had one meal in the restaurant, and it was excellent. Nice deal of a bottle of wine included if we ordered two courses each. Others have mentioned that there is currently building going on next door. Our room was located on the other side, and the noise was not a problem for us. I rated noise as "average", but this is only temporary. Normally, it should be very quiet. Besides, who stays in a motel room all day. We were out for breakfast and a surf by 8:30. We'll stay again for our next visit to Gerringong, which is now a very nice town, with easy access to Kiama, and other surrounding areas.
We so enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Ridge Retreat. Our room was so comfortable and clean with views of the country side. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was delicious. We only had to cross the road and we were right in the heart of Gerringong. We will definitely visit again.
Do not book via Orbitz-they charged us in $US and added a surcharge which didn't show until after booking was charged. Very nice rooms but at present, and probably for some months, they are building apartments next-door and the riot of crashing and banging noise stars at 7am. Unless you are leaving early, you might want a more peaceful start to your day. The ground floor rooms at front are great for access from your car. There is no garden or outdoor courtyard at this hotel. The driveway has been nicely landscaped but it's not a garden. The road outside is screened off by the planting and is quiet. The rooms have a mini-fridge, toaster, kettle, tea and coffee making. Good wi-fi, TV, air-con. Good showers and hot water supply. No idea why it's called a 'Retreat". It's a motel. You can rent a room with a spa. You only have to walk a short distance to the shops and cafes. There's an excellent bottleshop adjoining the IGA supermarket. Breakfasts at the various cafes vary in price, some have ocean views but you pay a premium of course.…
We revisited Gerringong for our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately the motel is now surrounded by lots of buildings and ongoing construction woke us before 7 each morning. We couldn’t relax in our room during the day with the noise. The beautiful views the motel had are gone. We thought about leaving after the first night. Disappointing. The second evening there was a noise that went on for quite a long time. I think it may have been a spa?
We went to Gerringong for our anniversary weekend away and had a great time. We stayed in a king deluxe room and thought it was great with plenty of space. The bathroom is perhaps a little dated but was very clean. Dinner at the restaurant was fantastic with a very friendly and knowledgeable host. I recommend a visit to the bowlo for a meal & drinks, great little club with friendly locals. The golf course is a short drive and well worth it if you play as the views are spectacular
