“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for 1 night in an executive suite. Hotel was fully booked out and this was all that was left so bit the bullet and forked out the extra cash as I didn't have must choice, nothing else was available that night in wollongong anywhere! The executive suite has a huge bathroom with twin sinks, a huge sunken bath & separate shower. King bed was sooo comfortable & the balcony was nice and roomy. I ordered room service twice which was delivered promptly with a smile. My son loved the pool, it was just beautiful lying on the pool side lounges in the sun. Can't complain about anything, I really enjoyed my stay, it was a fantastic break from hectic city life and I will be returning.

We booked a room 6 months ago. The room was supposed to be executive room with golf course or CBD views or at least that's what my booking confirmation said. Not true. The view is straight into a house about 10 metres, that's right 10 metres away! I checked with reception to see if a mistake had been made. No mistake. I would have views if we were in a room higher up and if I had of specified that a the time of booking. How was I to know? Very deceptive advertising.

Room Tip: Don't pick room 413 if you are expecting a view.

Staff friendly enough & check in very quick. The rooms are clean & quite comfortable. I would stay here again but find with the extra you have to pay for parking it makes it quite expensive. I believe during the football season RED V members (Dragons NRL) can get reduced rate. I did try to book for a match but they only had the more expensive rooms available. I find it very central & of course it is across the road from WIN stadium

The chivalry would be my first preference for business travel. The hotel is situated out of the CBD but the walk into town each morning is no more than10-15mins. The hotel is clean, friendly staff and the facilities are more than adequate. The gym is great for those who are wanting to keep fit whilst travelling. Beach is close by too. The top of my list for hotels in the Gong.

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.
