Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Yes its above the pub, yes it's also great!

I booked at the last minute needing little more than somewhere to stay for the night.
I knew when booking that this was pub based accommodation so was expecting pretty basic rooms.

When I arrived what a nice surprise! The room was great! Comfy bed, big TV, spacious bathroom and an excellent bed!

The room was as good as any regular hotel or motel you'd stay in for a lot higher price. Easily the best pub based accom I have stayed in and I'm sure I'll be checking out more Nightcap accommodation in the coming months.

Highly recommended

We thought the self checkin was a bit convoluted but attended to in
the end by very pleasant staff.
The advertised “available” rate was increased by $10 which was rather
annoying. If it’s not available remove it from the site!
The room was large, spotlessly clean and offered everything needed
to make ones stay comfortable.
A bit cave like with only high, inaccessible windows.
Parking is at the rear of the hotel in public parking area.
Steps to the room which could be a difficult for those with mobility
problems.
Hotel does have all the usual hotel things and eats!.

Bit basic for us. However it was very clean and modern. Unusual checkin but chap was friendly enough and stay was quiet. Fridge was noisy getting to temperature so we turned it off. Great shower with new furnishings. Bed was too soft for a decent sleep. Probably would not stay here again as it was pricey for the accommodation provided

Booked for convenience to family. The rooms have been renovated and are exceptionally nice. Very clean and tidy. For two people the bedroom was just big enough with everything we needed. Most happy with comfort of the bed and pillows (which were just right!). We usually have an issue with enough electrical sockets due to phone charging, cpap machine etc (normally we take a power pack and extension lead).... but they have given each side of the bed two sockets AND a phone charging usb port in the middle. The bedside lamps are wired separately. Most impressed!

Breakfast was supplied as a pack with milk, cereal and plastic container and wooden spoon. Tea and coffee making facilities with fridge in room. Hairdryer available from reception but I always take my own.

The bathroom was spacious with a rain shower head which I didnt want to leave. Very well designed and decorated.

Air conditioned with dark blind.

Only downside (if it is really) is that being a pub they have music on (we stayed on a Saturday night). We expected that might be the case and you could hear muffled music upstairs but 10.30 on the dot it finished so we had a perfectly quiet nights sleep.

Only downside would be for someone who could not navigate the stairs as there is no elevator.

So good were staying again this weekend!

Stayed for a night as our camper van broke down.. Only gave a 4 as it wasn’t greatly sign posted so we were confused as how to get in to check in.. Room was nice and clean.. Bed wasn’t overly comfy but still got a good night sleep..

Bed was fantastic. The room was modern and the bathroom was a lovely surprise. The whole place was clean to the highest standard.
The walls are a little thin we could hear the guy next door snoring in the afternoon. No noise off the street nor from the pub. There are stairs as stated in the booking. Level one is 25 stairs up, so that was not for the faint hearted. On a side note We had lunch at the pub. The portions were large but the food was pretty ordinary. This wasn’t factored into the star rating.

I was in Wollongong yesterday as I had to see a friend in Woonona. I found this place “Nightcap at the Charles Hotel” not too far from where I had to go. The place from the outside may not look appealing as it’s part of the local pub. But when you go inside , it’s awesome ….clean and friendly staff. I even got a compliment drink on arrival ….highly recommend

A girlfriend and I had lunch here after a morning of shopping. Food was served fairly quickly. Prices are good, and they also have a lunchtime menu. We both ordered Chicken Burger which was generous in size , and we both didn't finish. Also had a side of chips. Not bad for pub food.

Hi fanbelt, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! We understand that we are a bit late in our response, however we wanted to let you know that we now host the infamous Moe's Burgers at The Charles Hotel, and if you liked our Burgers back in 2015, you should try them now! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

I stayed here for work, knowing it was just to sleep. The room and bed were comfortable, decent bathroom, free WiFi, and located beside the hotel. It was central and convenient to several grocers. Off street parking. Walls were thin though and you could hear adjacent rooms and hallway. A different check in/out system, and reception relies on availability of hotel staff.
