We travel often to Wollongong and stay in a variety of accommodation.
Reception staff who welcomed us to our four night stay at Novotel Northbeach were pleasant and helpful - a good start.
We required parking - entrance/exit to carpark was difficult to navigate - small squared turning spaces with lots of roped and taped edges and low ceilings showing evidence of many vehicle collisions. Understand that Novotel can't change bad design.
We had problems with our keycard room access - two re-scans. Also problems with parking card access - re-scanned once, holding up access for cars behind us. Staff always pleasant and helpful.
The hotel foyer was clean, wide and easy to navigate and our city view room was spacious, very clean and had a small sea view. A great bonus - the window opened!
Bathroom was spacious, newly renovated and very clean, but only one towel rail, no hooks to enable hanging of toiletry bags. Shower over high sided plastic bath - quite difficult to get out of. Probably impossible for short stature/ less mobile people.
The lobby bar was large and pleasant but bar does not have beer on tap and the one time we tried it there was only one barman serving drinks and preparing food, resulting in a large queue - we waited ten minutes and left.
Dining in on two nights we ordered from the special healthy menu. Food was beautifully presented, well cooked and tasted wonderful.
Thank you Novotel for very clean, comfortable accommodation, great food and well trained staff. Just short on the details.
