Maja Couples - 15/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was really nice, location was great and the staff were lovely but I think it was way overpriced for our stay in the middle of winter. Most of the extra facilities were closed for renovation so we didn't have access to the gym, spa and pool. Also, breakfast was not included which we had originally thought it was. They also over charge us so I had to follow up. Overall, it would be great if you were rich.

Dear Maja R., Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your recent experience here with us at Novotel Wollongong Northbeach. As we are constantly striving to provide a superior service and experience, it is always a pleasure to receive constructive feedback. During your stay our only closures were our Gym which is still under refurbishments and our Sauna which is closed due to Covid safety precautions. Our Spa has been permanently closed and our Pool was indeed available every day during your stay. Please note that information regarding this is stated on our website as well as on the welcome letter received at the time of check in. Your feedback as our guest is highly valued and rest assured, will be shared with our relevant teams as an encouragement to continuously improve the quality of our guest journey. Thank you again for sharing your experience and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Best Regards, Vanessa Borg Guest Relations Executive

My partner and I were very impressed with the friendly service that we received during our stay and helpful the staff were.

Gary C. Couples - 14/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

2 days, 1 night beside the beach and ocean, with fine weather. Hotel has been refurbished since my last visit and shows a number of changes either completed or in progress. Main bar area seems to have less seating (COVID), but due to bar being centralised in the room. The outside area with cabanas (good idea), should also provide tables/seating under existing cover near main windows in case of rain. Main restaurant is still as good as ever, even without the seafood buffet, as the views are stunning at any time. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the balcony provides space, views and fresh air.

The young woman who did my check in was excellent. Bar staff seemed a little overwhelmed and I'd appreciate some low alcohol wine by the glass. Breakfast buffet was OK. Getting an expresso coffee took ages and I object to paying extra for that when I'm paying $25-35 for food and $200 for my room

987carolynj 13/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is much improved after the recent reservations. As a gold ALL member I was upgraded to an ocean view room on the top floor. The room was a good size with a king bed and lounge. The reception staff were all very pleasant. The location of the hotel is very good particularly as Wollongong has the city loop bus service that stops at the front of the hotel. The only criticism being the carpet in the hall is quite stained and the elevators had an issue but they are about to be upgraded which should decidedly improve their performance.

Hi 987carolynj, Thanks so much for your feedback and 4 star rating. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us as well as our newly upgraded facilities. How great is our location! We are very lucky to be situated in such a fantastic area. Thank you for raising your concerns, we are currently implementing measures to rectify these issues. I look forward to having the opportunity to accommodate you again in the future. Best Regards, Vanessa Borg Guest Relations Executive

orien2006 05/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

This hotel is a gem and is undergoing major renovations. As a Diamond member, I was really impressed with the way they acknowledged my status (unlike another recent stay in a Novotel Hotel in Adelaide). My upgrade was amazing overlooking the beach, the welcome gifts were beyond what most hotels provide and very impressive. I was very pleasantly surprised and the recently refurbished restaurant and the breakfast food and beverage options were outstanding For those who maybe aren't All reward program members, this hotel should still be a must on your list for a future holiday. Its well positioned, great parking, updated rooms and amenities and fairly priced. Many thanks to the hotel staff who were all very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to the restaurant staff for a truly great breakfast experience

Hi orien2006, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback on your recent stay with us. Firstly, Id like to thank you for your membership loyalty to Accor.

I thank you kindly for your genuine and lovely comments. I will be sure to pass this feedback on to our relevant teams as an encouragement to continuously improve the quality of our guest journey. I look forward to accommodating you again in the near future. Best Regards, Vanessa Borg Guest Relations Executive
