Really fine place to stay as the location is very close to a great beach at North Wollongong. Really good swimming spot with sports played on it. Plenty of parks and within walking distance of Wollongong Harbour, more tourist driven than Fishing Port these days

I went to a family wedding in the Grand Ballroom of the Novotel last month. It was beautifully decorated and the meals were very good, as were the staff who served them. There was a balcony where the wedding took place and the wedding lunch was in the Grand Ballroom. Definitely a wonderful venue for a wedding. There were 320... More

The place is right on the beach with awesome views, if you have the right rooms. The staff was good for the event we went for, however otherwise on the front desk etc the staff was rather slacking and not pro active. Rooms - old fashioned but clean. Very far from the airport, travel can be expensive.

This was my third visit to this hotel. We love the location as it is so close to the beach and the view from the rooms (if your room faces the beach) is beautiful.

This is probably the best hotel at Woolongong. The property has a good location and is right on the beach. I had a sea facing room with two glass walls. Outstanding views from the room. Hotel is maintained well an staff is friendly. Wifi and breakfast should be included in rates here.

Hotel is in a good location. The hotel foyer and rooms need to be renovated immediately. If it wasn't for the great customer service this place would be closed in no time. I think it's overpriced for what it is. Don't believe the photos of the rooms. There is a beautiful view of the beach. We attended a wedding at... More
