Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a 3 night stay. Fairly price. Location good. A bit run down. Probably needs an upgrade. The bar 'Pepe's' which is located on the outside of the building is not good. Too expensive and full of yuppies.

Great place to stay. Close to everything. We especially like the cafe for breakfast. The food and coffee are both good. We also like the closeness to the ocean. The ocean view from our room and the cafe are lovely. Will definitely stay again!

I had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. Check in was a bit slow as the poor staff at the desk were fielding phone calls as well as checking in, but they were friendly and welcoming. My room was spacious, and well appointed. There is even a USB plg/charger at the bedside. The bathroom had a good space for...

Great hotel right on a lovely, patrolled beach. Amazing buffet dinner with great seafood. Friendly, professional staff. Beautifully refurbished ocean view balcony rooms. Lovely swimming pool, but a pity the spa was out of action during our stay.

Here for a night for business. The best was one of the nicest I have ever slept in. So comfortable. Lovely big room and beautiful bathroom. I got room service (steak) and it was 5 star quality. Couldn't access the wifi - even though they had apparently given me free access. Basic pay TV. The hotel is right across the...

I stayed at this hotel for three nights while at a conference. I was very impressed, it is one of the best Novotels I have stayed at. It seems that most of the rooms have some sort of view of the beachfront, which was a very pleasant outlook. The room was a good size, the bed comfortable, and the shower...

Mid week stay for one night. The room was lovely, had everything you need for a comfortable overnight stay. View from our balcony was amazing.

I was aware that refurbishments were taking place at Novotel Wollongong. However what has been done far exceeded my expectations. The accommodation was great, the carrodors, carpeting etc was well done and all in all our time staying here was great. Not to mention breakfast which was well prepared and the staff were pleasant and helful. Well done Novotel !
