My friend and I were doing a road trip from Brisbane to Melbourne (via the coast) and decided to stay at the Chifley Wollongong due to a Wot If $99 a night daily deal.
- The staff made check in extremely easy (booked via Wot If). The only issue is even though the room booked was a twin room, when I asked if the hotel has a spa with the pool the girl made reference to a romantic night which was 100% not the case (We both have long term female partners!) which made for a awkward moment.
- The room was very modern twin room with two single beds, unfortunately the single beds where not that comfortable.
- Everything was clean and the TV was large and had Foxtell!
- The Barth room was also very modern and had a nice HUGE shower.
- It is not really in a main location in relation to the town and parking is $15 if you can’t find a spot out the front!
- Just a note: We had no view what so ever the only view was the top of the building next door!
Overall for the price the place is worth staying at for a quick stay and is great for business (besides no free WIFI).
Another small thing to mention, about 1.5km away is the local PUB the Noth Wollongong Pub which was a great spot to have a beer and dinner! Plus on the Friday we stayed they had a great live band (Kinetic Method).
