I recently stayed a total of 8 days at this fine hotel--2 initial nights followed by 6 nights some 8 days later. Asked for and received rooms with excellent northerly views of the coast and surf. Great seeing beautiful sunrises rising from the South Pacific, and sports parachutists landing on nearby field. Breakfast buffet was EXCELLENT! Asked for and received... More

We recently stayed at the Novotel Northbeach for 2 nights. I was extremely disappointed with my overall stay. Firstly we arrived to the room, we had a lovely view however our fridge had items left in from the previous guest and crumbs on the floor. We advised reception that the room needed to be re-cleaned and left for the day.... More

We travelled here with 3 kids (age 8, 5 and 1). We were made to feel very welcome. The facilities and decor was lovely. The restaurant, Windjammers, had a great buffet for both dinner and breakfast. Plenty of food is on offer, including a large variety of seafood and hot foods for tea and cereals and hot food for breakfast.... More

Arrived at the hotel on Boxing day without a booking. Receptionist was very helpful the hotel was extremely busy, but with a quick search they found a room available at an excellent price and waved the cost of the car park. Although the hotel was busy the lounge and bar areas coped well, plenty of space and very efficient staff.... More

The room was a very good size and had excellent sea views. Make sure you ask for an ocean view room when staying here. The fluffy towels were perfect. But there were a few problems. the bedside light was not strong enough for reading. Why do hotels go for design or price over practicality in this item, especially when many... More

The Novotel Nth. Beach did not exist when we lived in Wollongong many years ago. We know Nth Beach very well so we knew the hotel would have wonderful views over the ocean and harbour. Our check in was happy and friendly. The receptionst allocated us a lovely suite with of course great views. We watched the sunrise and sunset... More

This hotel is beautifully situated on the seafront at Wollongong. Everything worked well and the breakfast was really excellent. Better than Cruise ships buffet. Fresh fruit served imaginatively eg. fresh paw paw in mango puree and passionfruit - oh yum! A bowl of fresh strawberries. All hot foods were nicely served and hot and they did not look like they...

Ive stayed at the novotel on many occasions and find it clean and tidy. The buffet breakfast is also yummy! Its in a great location if you want to be near the beach but most of the places to each are a around a kilometre away. theres a few choices close by if you dont want to walk far.
