Good go to place in evening, meals were well priced and had large tvs, but sound very low so you could watch the news and just hear. But food and bar good and made me stay at hotel more than go elsewhere.

Went there on the off chance, and had a bottle of champagne and dessert, staff are attentative. The hotel could do with a make over.

We breakfasted here and I was very impressed with the fruits combined with different herbs/spices - unusual and very tasty. Also the cooked breakfast has a wide variety with something for everyone. The views over North Beach are fabulous too!

If you are into seafood you will love this buffet. There are other dishes to choose but I found them to be overcooked and dry. If you have kids who are fussy eaters I wouldn't recommend it. Service was excellent but we did have to line up and pay for our meal, which when the bill is $200 plus I... More

Not expecting to get what you get in the big hotels in Sydney, but chicken drumsticks, bgasa fish, penne, plain veggies, party pies and sausage rolls meant the mains were very ordinary. Entrees were better with oysters, prawns and smoked salmon. Dessert was about 5/10 - fruit, small cheese platter, jelly, choc mousse, small cakes. Also, what was on offer... More

This restaurant is part of the Novotel Hotel overlooking North Beach in Wollongong. The selection of dishes was limited one each section and the taste was average. The seafood was limited to some anaemic prawns, some good tasting oysters and some great looking salmon. It is a great place to take some hungry teenage boys but if it is taste... More

Great food but the restaurant was a little noisy when really full with diners who were in a party mood.

Have dined here a few times over the past couple of years and it has not changed. I must admit that I have been dining at Sofitels in Asia this year where they cater for just about every nationality and was brought back to earth by the buffet breakfast and dinner. Good selection for your average aussie but very boring,... More

We were staying at the Novotel and couldn't be bothered venturing out in the cold weather so decided to have breakfast at the hotel. Nice comprehensive buffet although a little outdated but food fresh and flavoursome. Outlook over the beach is lovely even in wet weather. Nice staff

Loved the seafood- fresh and abundant. Few dessert selections which would otherwise have given this restaurant top marks.
