“Lovely staff and view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We stayed in the Novotel before a family event, and as usual, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We didn't eat any food in the hotel so I can't comment on that.

The view is fantastic - we looked over the park and the beach. It was spectacular watching the sky divers land.

We stayed in room 901. There's just two small complaints about the bathroom - there was the crack in the bathroom sink, and there's no soap dish in the shower.

This is the best hotel to stay at in Wollongong. It is situated on a really nice beach. If you want to go into town shopping it is only a $9 cab fare.
The rooms are pretty good but the hotel could use a bit of a refresh as it is getting a little tired.
Breakfast is excellent.

Location is one of the winning things for this hotel, Was stayed on November for 3 night, my room was the best. Withe the view of the beach and a small balcony to zipped coffee and see the sunrise or sunset. But the concierge guy was bit rude, he took my friend's baggage straight to his room while he dropped me and my suitcase just in front of the lift. Overall it was great, Windjammers resto is my another fave.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here for two night in October. Overall, everything was fine and comfortable but a few small issues.
1. The bed was way too soft. A bit uncomfortable but ok
2. The air con was somewhat lacking any effectiveness.
3. The cost of the breakfast buffet was over the top especially considering many of the hot and cold dishes hadn't been refilled for sometime.
4. Despite having pre paid for three rooms, I received a bill for one of the rooms upon check out. The receptionist was unable to assist me and after 30 minutes a financial controller happened to come to reception and "find" my pre payment.
Very frustrating.
However, the lobby bar is great with good staff and good happy hour prices.
Would possibly stay here again

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple
