Best of all, it was a few minutes walk to the beach and a few minutes drive to Crown Street, with the free city bus stopping just down the street.

Good ol' hotel”

I'm old enough to remember when the Normandie was one of the leading hotels in Wollongong. OK, hotels have moved on as has Wollongong. Still, with an old building and not the best situation in the north 'Gong, the current management are working hard to keep their standards up. I was visiting friends so did not want the hotel to "entertain" me; I just wanted a place to sleep and shower. This hotel did that very satisfactorily & the room was not quite as cramped as one gets in modern budget hotels. It was also excellent value for money.

Centrally located old world charm”

My partner and I stayed at The Normandie over the December holidays. As a business traveller accustomed to 5-star properties, I found The Normandie utterly charming and a refreshing change from the generic, impersonal cookie-cutter hotel room. The Normandie had a lovely old-world charm about it, reminiscent of the old English B&Bs of my youth. Our room was a comfortable size, bright and sunny with all the usual amenities. Best of all, it was a few minutes walk to the beach and a few minutes drive to Crown Street, with the free city bus stopping just down the street. The hosts were a delightful couple that added to the warmth and appeal of the property - they were always ready to assist, offer advice or just have a friendly chat about the neighbourhood. All in all, we had a lovely time and though our days were mostly spent exploring Wollongong and the surrounding neighbourhoods, The Normandie was incredibly good value for money and a pleasure to come home to in the evenings.

Very, very nice”

roomy, clean, comfortable, lovely management

We had a lovely stay at the Normandie. The room was very large, with a spacious bathroom that had a wonderful shower. Everything was clean and the management and staff were friendly and helpful. it was a hot and sticky weekend, but the rooms had ceiling fans, air conditioning and windows that opened on to a balcony, to make us very cool and comfortable. Ingrida serves a whopping, good breakfast. The restaurant was closed for evening meals in January but the menu made us want to come back to try dinner. The only tiny negative is there is no elevator. The stairs are not hard to manage, and the manager helped us take our suitcase up.

Normandie a bit past its prime”

Close beach, off street parking, hot water

The Normandie is very dated and tired. There are no lifts and the stair access to rooms is narrow, tight and steep. Not suitable for anyone with a movement disability. The motel was noisy from both traffic and people walking past and calling out late at night and early morning. The beds were uncomfortable. The two bedroom suite required our older children to walk through the main bed room to get to the bathroom / toilet. The car park is off-street and adequate for our needs. It is uncovered and not extensive in size.

Claustrophobic room”

The location, shower and fridge

The small double room is absolutely tiny. It just about fits two small people in the bed (with your feet hanging over the edge). The mattress was very saggy and uncomfortable. The staff weren't particularly friendly when we checked in and the hotel is extremely run down and musty. The shower and fridge were good and it's in a great location if you're doing the Wollongong triathlon. Thought it was very expensive $140 for what you get (a box room). I wouldn't stay again out of choice.

location, large hotel room

This hotel is perfectly located with a short walking distance to the beach. Also it is close to the city center. The room was quite nice and rather big. The personal was nice and helpful. The only negative thing to say was that the internet connection was really lousy. It only worked at certain places in the room!

The hotel is quite dated. There is no lift, and the walls are quite thin so we could hear other guests movements. The location is great, the rooms are clean and the price is reasonable. We didn't eat at the restaurant so I can't comment on that. Overall a pleasant stopover.

Price wise and location are good. Check in was a problem as we had to leave for a wedding at 2pm. I was given the option at booking of letting them know what time we were arriving only to find out we would have to wait till two. Fortunately they managed to have a room ready for us a little earlier. The room was very small and tired.

Faulty Towers”

This place should be 1 star not 3 stars. It’s like a back packer hostel. The location is good but the whole building inside & out is old, tired & needs a major renovation. You could not adjust the shower & it was either burning hot or freezing cold. The managers were not very friendly or welcoming. After dinner Saturday night we could not get into the building after repeated attempts & the manager was not happy being disturbed to let us in. They then did nothing to stop the noisy guests who arrived at 3am & started loudly banging doors & partying till the sun came up. Would NEVER stay there again. It was like staying in Faulty towers. Shameful for Wollongong.

Great Location, suit most solo travelers on budget

I stayed for a night there. Location was great: near to public transports like train and buses, and less than 5 mins away from the beach. Receptionists were friendly enough. Cons: The room and aisle connecting each room were very small and creaky. Overall, it may suit solo travelers who come back to hotel only to sleep but mind sharing the room or other facilities like the backpacker hostels etc.

Clean, free Internet nice staff

The motel room was small and the bed was small. Came to visit my daughter at Uni but she had to stay in the dorm because the room was too small for us both to stay. The description on the Internet did not give enough information for a USA traveler to know what to reserve. It had a lot of stairs so don't bring big bags. Limited parking, we had continental breakfast and it was adequate. The staff was nice although a bit difficult to understand, had a Eastern European accent
