It was great to see a newly renovated bathroom, however the bathroom did get flooded with water after a shower due to the incline of the floor. The toilet roll also got wet due to its close proximity to the shower area as seen in pic....

Stayed at the Novotel Wollongong between Christmas and New Years. The hotel is conveniently located right across the street from the beach, which was the best feature! The hotel staff is also very friendly and helpful. They also have a lobby bar, Windjammers Cafe, and Pepe's, which I highly recommend for breakfast! The hotel itself seems a bit dated, but...
