“Very good hotel and reasonable price”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

I was staying at the hotel in Feb 2013 for joining my conference at Wollong Uni. It was pretty close between hotel and Uni. I was happy to stay with good facility and location. It was also close to golf club.

Stayed here with my partner one night and only booked a standard room expecting the usual 'standard' but instead got a lovely balcony off our room. Was a nice suprise.
Room was well maintained. Only downside was the hotel is a little to the end of town but still only a short walk to shops and the popular beach.

I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights for work. The restaurant was closed because 'its to quiet and has budgetary constraints'. There was a bar which did food however it closed at 10 o'clock even on Friday and Saturday. The food was pretty good for hotel food. The wine list is very limited. Rooms are very good and quiet. I recommend staying at the hotel but eat and drink out.

This hotel is very average and can be tricky to locate particularly with the construction work happening. Views from the room are also poor, a lot of apartments and industrial area views and not much of what Wollongong is known for! Prices for one night + breakfast is too much considering the breakfast buffet is not that great, however the staff are friendly and are willing to cater to your food requirements. Location isn't terrible - there's a path leading to the lookout but that's about it.Rooms are also basic, but comfortable and all basic provisions are given. Would not stay here again unless I absolutely had no other choices.

We enjoyed our recent 6 night stay here but have a couple of criticisms. When we booked our accommodation a month or so ago we were not advised of the nightly car parking fee ($15 per night), which was reduced to $7 per night because they neglected to tell us. Internet was charged at $11 per hour or $24 per 24 hours!! I truly expected free wifi as it is in most hotels/motels. I also overheard other guests complaining about the charge for Internet!!

When we arrived in our room, I immediately noticed the hand prints all over the wardrobe mirrored door, splash marks on the bathroom mirror, large crumbs of cake and bits of snack
food on the carpet! I rang reception and told the girl who immediately came up to our room with keys to another upgraded room. The new room was completely clean except for the balcony floor and furniture which all needed a good scrub. I did not mention this to staff!

Overall the service was very good and very friendly. The pool and pool area was nice and clean and always well stocked with clean fluffy towels. The gym was very well equipped and clean as well!!

This hotel is ideally located within walking distance to the beach, walking tracks, clubs, shops,
restaurants and Win stadium. We would not hesitate to recommend the Chifley and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Wollongong.

Had 1 night in this hotel for $99.00 with free parking. Lovely room and view and had a very clean pool. Nice modern gym with all machines working. Very polite staff and will be back for sure. Did not eat in the hotel but lots of nice eating places very close to the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for golf course view if possible.
