“Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

An upgrade and a bottle of wine with some chocolate was a nice touch on our honeymoon. First stay at this hotel and found everything perfect. Great location and views of North Beach. Thank you everyone for making it a memorable stay.

I regularly stay overnight at Wollongong due to work, and after trying a few other locations, I now always come back to the Novotel. Good service and great location for the early morning walk before work.

With only a short 3 night stay, l would have no worries in telling my friends who are planning a trip to Wollongong where to stay. I found the Novotel to be a great place to stay however like many things their was a few things that could be looked at first. For a four star hotel l didn't think the price l paid was right for it. Room was small and needed updating. Lights in room sometimes worked and TV reception wasn't the best. However the stuff were great and didn't have to wait very long for room service to arrive. Great food, great location and all round had a great stay. Would stay here again with no question asked.

We love to stay at the Novotel in wollongong. The ocean view family room is large enough for our family of 5 and the service is excellent. It is a little on the expensive side, but the beautiful sunrise in the morning from your bed and the full moon over the ocean at night was well worth the expense.

The hotel is set in one of the best locations in Wollongong with great views. The rooms are well appointed and the beds are extremely comfortable. The staff were very pleasant overall and this hotel has the potential to be excellent but needs to refine some service components. The battery in our swipe card door lock malfunctioned while we were out and on our return it took almost an hour to diagnose the problem, allow us access and finally required a move to an upgraded room. Breakfast service really needs attention when the hotel is full as the replacement of food and utensils was very slow. The buffet dinner is very pricey at $60.00 per head and it would be great to see the Novotel and other Australian 4 star hotels follow the service of European hotels to offer free wifi for guests.

Great service, staff very friendly and most helpful. Buffet breakfast was excellent, rooms werent fancy but confortable, tasteful and very clean. Price was very reasonable, great view!! Loved being able to walk to beach, harbour and eating places. Only suggestion would be a DVD player & microwave in the rooms. Thank you for a very relaxing stay, will definitely be back!!

I enjoyed the location. I thought the rooms looked a bit tired and need to be refurbished.The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

I don't think people staying at the hotel should have to pay for parking.
