After being very disappointed at our Mantra hotel in Wollongong, we decided to check out and try our luck at another hotel. Firstly, it was over $100 cheaper at the Novotel per night, and secondly it was like comparing chalk and cheese! Novotel had absolutely everything that we wanted, the Mantra had none! We absolutely loved it, and will certainly...

This is an average, outdated, but good hotel in Wollongong, in an excellent location right on the beach with great views. Rooms have seen better days. Stayed here a couple of years ago, and prior to that about 20 years ago - and very little has changed (except the odd coat of paint and change of carpet!). Food is just...

This hotel has location and when we stayed there it was 100 percent full, being between Christmas and New Year. The closeness to beach and views are the main drawcards, also parking at $15 a day is reasonable for a Novotel. Everything else we found standard for a Novotel.

Few options for meals, the hotel restaurant, an indian place, or an italian one by the water. Staff were very helpful and nice for everything we needed. While we were there, they had a special, kids stay...

We stayed here just after christmas and we were quite pleased with how close the hotel was to the beach. The hotel itself though is in desperate need of renovations. Everything looks so old in the rooms.

The hotel is so shabby and out dated. Before I continue the front of house staff were excellent and trying against all odds to please clients. They were great. The hotel though is another story, the rooms are old, dirty and have paint missing. The bathroom has a smelly shower curtain - which might be okay at a one star...
