Accomodation on a budget, good lock up carpark, basic room, small but comfy, excellent position for shopping, and a 10 minute walk to the beach.

Furthermore, he managed to find us a room for a 3rd night, which, being Australia Day, we had believed was fully booked pretty much everywhere.

We highly recommend this to our family and friends when they visit Wollongong for a short stay.

Exceptionally helpful service, close to shops, beaches, pubs”
Our second stay in the Marketview, and we will absolutely be returning! The staff are Uni of Wollongong Hospitality students, and are obviously being taught well. They are friendly, smile and are more than willing to help (sadly becoming rarer in some of the service industry). Matt - the staff member who checked us in - changed our room within 5 minutes of check-in due to an air-con issue - and had already set up the air-con in the new room (it was a hot day). Furthermore, he managed to find us a room for a 3rd night, which, being Australia Day, we had believed was fully booked pretty much everywhere. Excellent service. The rooms are smallish but fine - they are essentially Japanese business-hotel rooms (the Marketview was formerly an IBIS hotel), right down to the moulded showers. A 15-20 minute walk to City Beach and Wollongong Harbour, WIN Stadium - and a 5-10 minute walk to shops, pubs and restaurants. I recommend the Marketview - and commend the great staff!
Comfortable, nicely furnished hotel”
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. This was previously an IBIS hotel and is now owned by Wollongong university. It is occupied by students most of the year, and open to the public November to February only. Lovely rooms a little on the small size but very compact, well carpeted, comfortable bed, nice furniture and bed, and good functional bathroom with shower. The upper floors have nice views to the mountains or a historic church in parklike grounds. Friendly helpful staff, good continental breakfast. I felt very comfortable whilst there.
Very comfortable hotel in prime location”
Enjoyed my stay at the Marketview. My room small, but very compact, nice seating and desk area, good functional bathroom, pleasant view and very close to the main shopping area of Wollongong. They no longer serve breakfast or meals but there are plenty of restaurants and cafes close by. Staff always pleasant and available. Very good value for money.
it is in the middle of city center so it is very convenient to look around...also close to the beach. Staffs were kind and the hotel was clean.....room is a bit small though. Parking was safe and secure so if I visit Wollongong again, I would stay there again.
We had a great experience with the hotel. The staff were very helpful and catered all our needs during our stay. We highly recommend this to our family and friends when they visit Wollongong for a short stay.
very good, room was nice, bed was comfy and couldn't hear anything outside of the room; will be back next time we stay in Wollongong. Would definitely recommend it. Didn't use dining
Value for money”
Lots of shops and convenient stores close by the hotel. Quiet part of town so you can be assured of a good night's rest. Exclusive car park for guests. Clean and comfortable rooms. I'll definitely come back to stay when in Wollongong.
Clean comfy and friendly staff”
We had a positive experience at Marketview. The staff were very friendly and we had no issues in arranging an early check in. There is parking available under the hotel. Clean and comfy rooms. The rooms were a bit small but we were just looking for somewhere to sleep and were out of the room in the daytime, so this was perfect for us. Positive vibe in dining area. Waking distance to shops and cafés. We had no issues with noise at nighttime. Great value for money!!!
great hotel, service was excellent”
we had a lovely stay very central to the cbd of wollongong. close to clubs, beach and shopping. we would go back no question.
Great Location, Poor Sleep”
The bathroom was small and only 1 person could fit at a time, but that was not a great problem. We had a family room so there were 3 pillows. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were hard and thin. I like to sleep elevated so had 2 pillows. Neither my husband or myself slept well that night. The pillows were hard and had almost no height - they were flat as pancakes. The next morning we bought pillows from Target and slept better that night but I had to have the new pillow on top as the hotels pillows were still too hard. The pillows were about the only thing I could fault however, when travelling or on a holiday, a good nights sleep is absolutely crucial and because of that I will most likely NOT stay at the Marketview again. Which is a pity because it suited all our other needs.
Good hotel, great service”
right from checkin, i could tell it was a clean hotel. the dining area was tidy, the reception bench was not cluttered, and the area was bright even though it was a rainy day. had no issues with the checkin process after presenting the booking printout from agoda. i'd booked multiple rooms, but upon opening one of the rooms, i found it hadn't been made up yet. a call to reception and they were more than apologetic. coincidently, another staff member was walking by the hallway and apologised as well as offering me a room upgrade straight away. taking the price into consideration, it doesn't get much better than this! a great, clean, no-frills hotel
Convenient and comfortable”
Great location in central Wollongong. Close to shops and an easy 15 minute walk to the beach.
Rooms are small but has all the facilities necessary, great value for family. In the heart of city center, too convenient.
Good budget accommodation”
This hotel has a great location close to the centre of town, the shopping mall and only a short walk to the beach. The room was clean and tidy but very small. The double bed occupied most of the room and there was hardly room to walk around it, let alone anywhere for your luggage. That's the good part! Unfortunately, when I went to shower late at night I found that the drain in the bathroom was blocked and the result was that my room was flooded. The staff were helpful however and upgraded us to a family room but this meant having to pack and move our luggage again. The hotel have minimal facilities. There is a games room but no swimming pool. Another disappointing factor was that there was no wifi available in the hotel. The hotel website advertises that there are two computers in the foyer which can be used for the internet but when I enquired about these I was told that they weren't actually connected and if I wanted wifi I would have to walk in the rain to the local shopping mall. Overall, it was adequate for a short stay but far too cramped and lacking the facilities for staying any longer.
Easy check-in with friendly informative staff”
Easy check-in with friendly informative staff. Modern hotel with plenty of parking downstairs at no extra cost. Clean small room with two beds and bathroom. Ideal for my business trip as I only needed the room for sleeping and a bit of work on my laptop. Very affordable compared to other hotels in area and would highly recommend. Had booked in for five days but finished work early and staff refunded remaining nights. Overall an enjoyable experience.
pleasant hotel with good service”
interesting hotel - during the year it is used as student accom and not available to public. the rooms were small but exceptionally clean and the bed was very comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful location was good for walking to beach and shops and many eateries
Great location - good value hotel”
Given the reviews, we were very surprised, it was clean, bed comfortable, close to everything and staff were great. Loads of good restaurants around too, plus beaches were lovely.
Just What and Where we wanted for 1 night”
We were only there for 1 night to attend a nearby function. This hotel's proximity to our function venue was excellent because we could just walk the couple of blocks distance from the hotel to the venue - the Collegians Club. Our tariff included 2 Breakfast Vouchers so enjoyed a Continental Breakfast before we checked out
it was great price nice staff clean, close to every where . but our room had a broken tv, broken bed 1 leg on floor as we got there, shower door didn't close so water everywhere. told staff and they gave me another room and let us keep both for the night. fringes are very noisy at night my kids didn't sleep . room 211 wasn't good. 210 was better.
Excellent staff ,location amazing ”
Very good,really enjoy our stay the staff was amazing would recommend for family centrally located from all the amenities. Would like to thanks market view hotel for making our stay a memorial .
