very happy with room clean tidy and affordable staff are very polite and helpful i would highly recommend market view hotel Woolongong. (very good location) The hotel is located across the street from the crown plaza which is very helpful you can leave your car parked at the hotel because everything is walking distance.

This is great value accommodation. We stayed here for a night and were pleasant surprised with the room. They are compact, but if you know that going there then there is no issue. We got there early and the staff let us park downstairs, so that was handy. The room was clean and comfortable, I did turn on the TV...

I was shocked with how much I adored this place because of reading other reviews. I was so happy that our room had a small bar fridge (to keep a chocolate slice) and soft drinks. I loved the air-con which was so helpful when it was 30 degrees. The staff were AMAZING, lovely fellow logged me into a computer which...

This building was built as an Ibis (basic budget hotel) and has since been bought by University of Wollongong to use as a student residence. Apparently when the students are away, the rooms are let out by the Uni like a hotel. That said, the room was very tidy, with all the hotel things normal linen, towels, soap, etc. It...

This accommodation is used by the university as student accommodation during the university year and then accommodation during breaks and this is starting to show due to things looking a little more run down then the last time i stayed. If you are not looking for anything fancy, this is still a great place to stay. The location is great...

This is one of the best places we have stayed in on our long travels. I cannot stress enough how awesome this place was to stay. Ok, fine, there was no wifi, which is a bit of a travellers nightmare, but that is definitely not a reason to take stars away. The staff, Sean and I'm assuming the lady manager...

A great location close to shops and restaurants. We got a Groupon voucher that was super cheap and we got what we paid for! The bathroom wasn't overly clean with hairs in it. The TV didn't work and while they were polite and tried to rectify the problem...it was kind of annoying they hadn't checked all was fine when the...

The rooms are always clean, and location is close to all amenities, and staff are helpful. We have stayed many times whilst it had the Accor banner and many times as Market view, but since its now run by the Wollongong university and its starting to fail. The restaurant is not operational, the carpark, is constantly full , and you...
