We were in house guests at the hotel. The brekky is not the best. And their ala carte menu had only 3 over priced things on it.. their stake was like $42. They have a sea food buffet but no Balmain bugs or lobster just prawns and oysters for $49 per adult. They also don't honour the Accor membership for... More

If you are looking for a high quality buffet when you are in Wollongong then don't overlook Windjammers at Novatel. Its buffet is always full of a fine selection of foods, including seafood, lamb, chicken and pastas. The dessert selection is fantastic, including a full size ice cream fridge for the little ones (and the young at heart). The management... More

Windjammers is located on beach side of the Novotel. The sea food buffet is very good and the view while dinning is just fantastic. There is a lot more than just Sea food, normally there is a Curry, Rice, Roast Meat, numerous salads, Pasta plus lots of Deserts, lollies an ice cream "for the kids" the best part is if... More

We had a seafood buffet for dinner here on a Wednesday night. It was only just passed the mark. Seafood weren't tasting sweet - they had no taste - whether they weren't as fresh as should be. We were disappointed with the selection with mains and dessert. We were told after that Windjammers was the place to eat. Next morning... More

Booked online, booking was received and special request accommodated (asked for window seat). We chose the a'la carte menu. When main meal arrived the staff tried to fit our meals on the table without removing entire plates. The same happened again with drinks.

Service was super slow, had to ask twice for someone to take our drink order, the main dishes were quite often empty thus I... More

Excellent selection of fresh seafood on a Saturday night with plenty of options for people who aren't particularly seafood fans. The selection of desserts was also excellent. Customer service was very good, it was quite a windy evening and were asked if we wished to have our table relocated due to be close to the door leading outside. Overall a... More

The food is good and fresh. Fresh prawns were yummy. All you can eat buffet is a bonus, especially if you like oysters. Plenty of hot food options too. Desserts were great. I ate 3!
