“A Good Stay”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We spent only one night at Chifley Wollongong but we were impressed by the staff , the room and the restaurant . We had a room with a balcony and very pleasant views to the north including the escarpment , the stadium and the beach . Due to rain we were not able to walk far but it would be lovely to walk by the beach to the pretty harbour . The hotel is not in the centre of the city but close enough to walk and this area is far more attractive than the centre .We would stay here again if we were in Wollongong .

Room Tip: A balcony room with a northern view would be our pick .

My wife and myself picked The Chifley, previously staying at a Chifley in Sydney. We picked up the "Summer Package" which was two nights with full breaky.

Staff both at reception and breakfast, were friendly and courteous. We stayed in an Exec. room with balcony overlooking the pool. The pool was adjacent to a reception room which was used for a least one wedding over our stay. We were on the fifth floor and noise was not a problem. The room itself was clean and modern, serviced daily, with a bath and a shower separate. Breakfast staff were professional and inobtusive in their service, and the full breakfast first rate.
Location, close to "The Blue Mile" a relaxing walk along the beachfront up to the lighthouse and boat harbour. Around the corner is the Golf Club, with a great view from the bistro.
You have a choice of paying for secure undercover parking, or parking out front for free. The free parking appeared to be at a premium. Would return anytime we were in Wollongong.

Room Tip: Stayed in north facing room, but high east rooms would be the pick (suites?)

It was a weekend get away with friends .When we booked the hotel we were in aware that the football was on that weekend and the the Chifley was so close.Upon arrival the reception staff was excellent because their were four couples we asked if we could be close to each ,one couple even got an upgrade .The room were clean and comfortable and we thought T the first since the football was on it would be noisey but it wasn't .

We will be coming back here again .

Room Tip: ask for one with a balcony the view is unbelievable

Stayed for 2 days, new hotel, well set out, beautiful suite with excellent facilities (but small towels our only gripe), outlook over golf course, excellent staff. Dined in restaurant and had best steak for ages, and beautiful breakfast. Recommend highly. We'll be back!!!

Room Tip: Pick a room with balcony and view over golf course and coastline - rooms on end of building!!

My Partner and I just spent two relaxing nights at the Chifley Wollongong. We had an 8th floor executive room with a king sized bed. The room was immaculate and the furnishings were modern and up to date. I could not fault the room in any way. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The champagne on arrival was a nice touch and I was expecting 'vinegar' but it was excellent. Breakfast in the C Grill was superb, with everything fresh and hot. Service staff were attentive, without being 'in our face'. I would highly recommend your hotel and we will definitely be back over and over again.

Room Tip: this hotel is close to several clubs and there are plenty of local eateries to try.
