Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Excellence in B&B Stays My husband and I stayed at Openwater Plus for one night in June. All I can say that it was a wonderful stay and we will be definitely staying there again. The owner's communication was wonderful and we had easy access to the room as they were not at the property when we arrived. We met up with the owners later on that day and we found them to be lovely and very accommodating which made us feel very much at home. My first impression was wow!! Very clean and the room smelt like brand new. A nice comfortable queen size bed with the most lovely smelling sheets. The bathroom was extra clean with all amenities. The towels were also lovely soft with a lovely smelling aroma. There were complimentary coffee making facilities plus muesli, fruit and milk for breakfast. TV, free DVD's, ceiling fan and reverse cycle air conditioning. Parking was out the front of the residence and with very easy walking access to town, restaurants and hotels which was only 25 metres away. Also very close by is Thirroul Beach which is lovely. I would highly recommend this B & B to any prospective guest who are intending on staying in the Thirroul/Wollongong area. It is a must. Thank you Lawrence & Elaine. It was pleasure!!!
