But I paid for seafood menu $45.00 for me, $35.00 for my 13yld and $11.00 for my 11yld. Value for money well no... read more

We had breakfast, lunch and room service dinner ftom Windjammers during our stay at the Novotel. The food was very good. The restaurant was always busy, but service was helpful, friendly, quick and efficient. Particularly during the buffet lunch food was replenished very quickly throughout the service. The seafood at the buffet lunch was fresh. Desserts were just delicious!

The restaurant is huge and not very personal. Noise is very distracting with tiled floors. Wine selection looks great but wines are very poor quality and I have tasted better cask wine which is not $50 a bottle. Seafood Buffet was OK and fresh food was fine but hot food was disgusting.

The Wollongong area has a large amount of choice when it comes to restaurants, so there needs to be something great and/or special about any particular restaurant to make someone go out of their way to eat there. Buffet food always seems a bit average to me. Windjammers seems okay enough in that I'm sure the food was of quality,... More

I guess the breakfast is really good but just so expensive. I would have breakfast here more often but the cost is, to me, too much for the Occassion .

i stayed at then novotel for a recent conference and attended the lunch buffet two days in a row. The food was nice but the same each day. The decor gives you the impression of being in a cafeteria.

Went there with the in-laws for an meal with the kids. A la carte, not buffet. First thing was the total unfriendliness of the staff, seriously people, the place had about 15 diners in total and the staff were surly at best. Next, we had to ask three times for the kids milkshakes, in the end they had completed their... More

Great buffet breakfast and beautiful views. Plenty of seating so you don't feel like you are sitting on top of each other.

Came for breakkie while staying upstairs. Love the buffet breakfast, so many choices from healthy to indulgent. You can take your time and work through all of it. The view of the ocean makes for a lovely setting.
