4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Although the beds are great and the staff helpful the general standard of the fittings in the rooms is not to the high standard that should be provided by a 4 star hotel. On two stays in different rooms the floors weren't vacuumed well, the carpets scruffy and the tiles in the bathrooms need to be scrubbed to get rid... More

The short time we were there we were impressed, it would have been nice to stay longer, but maybe next time. We were very impressed with the comfortable room we were in, the bed was really comfy. The breakfast maybe could have been a little hotter.

My wife and I stayed for one night. The room was clean. The staff were friendly. Location wise it was very good also. I was surprised at how close it was to WIN Stadium but there was nothing on that weekend.

A nice place to stay. Great location close to the beach and many restaurants. Little things like complimentary newspapers and magazines for guests was a nice touch. The breakfast was tasty and a great variety but the hot food was not hot enough and the cost of the buffet was not displayed at the restaurant. Great service from staff.

The Chifley is our go to hotel when coming to Wollongong. Clean, great location, friendly service. Will stay there again. Had dinner in the C Grill - nicely cooked meat, but condiments could be a little more flavoursome.

By Carol 4th April 2015 Good location. Friendly staff who were very accommodating. The room was clean and quite spacious. We had nice views of the ocean and we were very close to the promenade walkway. Lovely!

Arrived quite late in the afternoon. Surprised that an extra $100 was debited from my Mastercard account on check in. The next surprise was when we got to our room at 5:40pm to find it not cleaned or made up. We were upgraded to a suite which was nice. however it would have been nice to have some cups in... More

We stayed at the Chifley for one night when in Wollongong, and the location of the hotel is ideal. A short walk to cafes and restaurants, shopping, the beach and Win Stadium. Rooms were clean and nice, nothing amazing or stand out (good or bad). I had booked it as a Mystery booking so got it cheaper than paying full... More
