very friendly staff. good for short stay. closer to CBD, beach and restaurants. Room is adequate for couple only. It contain fridge, TV, desk, kettle. But room doesn't have microwave for heating meals. Price bit higher for couples.

We only stayed one night as we had a function in Wollongong to attend, I thought it was a little overpriced considering the renovations that this place needs. It's looking very tired and old - a little bit of paint and some new fixtures would really improve the feel of the place but it was clean and tidy.

This is a cheap motel, so don't get all angry when you rock up and it isn't 5 star! You get what you pay for which is fine with me. Yes, the bed in my room was hard as a rock but other than that the amenities were fine; TV, aircon, small desk & small ensuite. Yeah the decor was... More

Stay at the Normandie at a last minute booking.This is an venue that needs renovating. It is out of date and is looking very tired and dowdy.However the room was adequate as I knew what sort of room I was booking. I maintain it was slightly over priced for what it was. However it is well situated close to the... More

The rooms were tiny, beds were terribly uncomfortable, bathroom was dirty and shower door did not even close, doors were mouldy and cracking, housekeeping were rude, walls were paper thin to the point where we woken up by noisy neighbours having an argument at 2am. Overall it was a terrible experience and I would not reccomend this accommodation to anyone.

The Normandie motel is a good 3 star level accommodation, the staff / owners are really helpful and friendly. I didn't try the restuarant but the soup I had in my room was lovely and home made. The big plus is the fact you can open the windows and get some fresh air into the room - airconditioning was also... More

Made booking for Elderly parents to attend grand daughters wedding in Wollongong. Room was so small one person had to sit on the bed while the other got dressed. Bed was so uncomfortable they woke and left at 4 am drove all the way home and had breakfast there. Never again! My apologies Mum.
