This is one of the best places we have stayed in on our long travels. I cannot stress enough how awesome this place was to stay. Ok, fine, there was no wifi, which is a bit of a travellers nightmare, but that is definitely not a reason to take stars away. The staff, Sean and I'm assuming the lady manager...

A great location close to shops and restaurants. We got a Groupon voucher that was super cheap and we got what we paid for! The bathroom wasn't overly clean with hairs in it. The TV didn't work and while they were polite and tried to rectify the problem...it was kind of annoying they hadn't checked all was fine when the...

The rooms are always clean, and location is close to all amenities, and staff are helpful. We have stayed many times whilst it had the Accor banner and many times as Market view, but since its now run by the Wollongong university and its starting to fail. The restaurant is not operational, the carpark, is constantly full , and you...

The only reason I gave this hotel a 3 out of 5 is because the staff at the hotel is amazing. The hotel staff makes staying here a little comfortable. A+ to the STAFF. Hotel Room... I've had bigger rooms in NYC...this has got to be the smallest room I've ever stayed in. The shower is so small that you...

This is a good budget hotel close to the city, shopping centre and only a short walk to the beach. However, the rooms are tiny and there is barely room to walk around the bed, let alone room for your luggage. Unfortunately, when we went to shower late in the evening we discovered that the drain was blocked and this...

We stayed here in january just for a night away, only paid $92 on a Saturday night! Less than half the price it would have cost us to stay anywhere in Sydney on a Saturday night. The room was small but tidy & had everything we needed including tea & coffee facilities, tv, and air conditioning. The staff were lovely,...

It's a college dorm room, not a hotel room, people. Tiny. Carpets were disgusting and filthy. Walls had holes and damage from posters or whatever previous student put up. Bathroom was clean. I've stayed in better hostels. Get what you pay for, I suppose. On a bright note, staff was very nice. Sean, who checked us in was ver kind...

Stayed here overnight with the family before the NYE. This was the cheapest hotel I could find online due to high peak season. And lucky I booked it in as it was a great value for money. The location was excellent - shops and the beach were walking distance. Room was clean and enough space to move around. Will definitely...

Stayed for one night in December for a stopover on a larger road trip. We booked Marketview based on price and location and were not disappointed. Right in the heart of Wollongong CBD, we were nice and close to all the main shops and amenities one needs for a 12 hour layover. Check-in was very quick, with pre-payment taken from...

A small room but great value for money. The friendly staff allowed us to check in a little early. It's location is close to the main shops and restaurants of Wollongong. Parking was available for free onsite.
