Consistently excellent service”

I have stayed at Sage Wollongong a few times now over a number of years and I'm pleased to say that it has always been a terrific experience. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, the staff are friendly and have been quick to resolve any issues I've had. The location is within walking distance of key venues in the CBD while being far enough away from street noise as people make their way home after a big night out.

Lovely hotel - a little gem in Wollongong!”

Beautiful rooms, great breakfast, very attentive staff and secure parking

We were visiting family in Wollongong and needed a hotel so picked the Chifley which we knew was newly built. Whilst not as central as the Novotel we were really pleased with the hotel - it was spotlessly clean and had great service. The breakfast and room service were good, very high standard of food and prompt service.

I would still stay in Sage Hotel Wollongong if I were to re-visit Wollongong in the future. It is located walking distance to the North Beach and the eatery places are also 5-10 minutes walk away. Overall it was a comfortable stay.

Quiet location close to town.”

Had an issue with lift noise the first night so we were moved to another room and given a complimentary breakfast. Had an executive balcony room which was large and the bathroom was huge. The bath was extra long and deep. Comfortable beds. You can easily walk to restaurants, the lighthouses and Nth Wollongong. Give the free bus a swerve though. Not worth the effort.

Great location, modern hotel”

location to win stadium and entertainment centre

As we were only had to drive a couple of hours to the hotel, we rang and requested an earlier check-in than 14:00 hours, as we were attending a function elsewhere in the city at 14:00 hours. Our request was received warmly and whilst not guaranteed, we were advised that every effort would be made to accommodate our request to check-in at approx. 13:00 hours. Arriving before the regular check-in time, we were told our room was available and we were able use our room and freshen up before proceeding to our function. The room was comfortable and clean and was satisfactory for our two night stay in the Wollongong area.

Clean & modern hotel”

Location, clean

This is my second time staying at Chifley Wollongong. Both times were with my husband and adult relatives. Room is clean, amenities are available. The room can be occupied by up to 4 people. Main bed is big & firm (I like firm bed). There're 2 sofa bed, one is a double bed & the other one is single bed. Both sofa beds are - as expected - not comfortable to be slept on, however when they're converted into sofa, they're really comfortable. There's a swimming pool at the hotel, looks nice but I didn't have a go.

Outstanding ”

Another outstanding stay at Sage. Exceptional customer service provided by staff again especially Lauren & Kimberly at reception. These two young ladies are certainly a huge asset to the Hotel. Also shout out to Linda in Housekeeping. Lovely lady who takes pride in her job! Bedding very comfortable and rooms clean. Some minor maintenance issues which have been raised with the hotel directly but certainly does not change my opinion of the Hotel. Definitely value for money. Would I return and recommend and this is a definite Yes.

Convenient Location. Nice hotel.”

The Sage was booked as a last minute thing for us so we didn't know what to expect but it was a very nice hotel. Staff were friendly. The pool was very nice with towels provided and nice individual lounges with shade provided. It is only a short walk up to the main mall and restaurants, bars etc. I didn't walk to the beach but I did note that it was close by. During our stay one lift was out of action which meant getting to your room was a bit slow, but I assume that has now been fixed.

Good”

During our 5 night stay in an executive suite my wife and I were subjected to the following: 1. Bathroom smelt of urine upon arrival. 2. Carpet had not been vacuumed upon arrival. 3. Housekeeping did not empty our bins. 4. Housekeeping did not restock our room with clean drinking glasses. 5. Housekeeping did not restock our room with clean coffee cups. 6. Housekeeping did not restock our room with coffee/sugar. 7. Housekeeping did not restock our room with toilet paper. 8. Our room was serviced after 3pm on one particular day and after 3.30pm on another day. This mean't that you could not come back to your room in the afternoon after being out all day and simply relax as you weren't sure when housekeeping were going to arrive to service your room. You would think it would already be done by 3-3.30pm in the afternoon but it wasn't. 9. Definitely would NOT stay at the Sage again and couldn't possibly recommend it to family and friends.

Great Boutique Hotel in Excellent Location...”

We were very happily surprised with this hotel. Nicely styled and in an excellent location (short pathway walk to the beautiful beach). The staff and service was really good and it's also just a couple of minutes away from numerous restaurants. Jasmine Rice Thai restaurant is just around the corner and is excellent quality, I'm from Newtown and so know Thai food really well! Overall I'd happily recommend this cool boutique hotel... and request a room on a high floor as you can get some awesome views too!

Right Next to Win Stadium”

The hotel is right next to Win Stadium. So I'm guessing it could be a little hectic when there is a footy game in there. We were there 2 days before a footy game scheduled and it was very quiet. It's pretty close to the beach and the city centre. A good alternative if you are travelling around the South Coast.
