Sage Hotel Wollongong4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed for one night in a Sage Suite on level 11. Very overpriced at $449 for one night mid-week. The room was dated and the layout was not functional. There was very dim lighting throughout, not enough ceiling lights especially in the bathroom. The coffee machine was handy. The ipod dock was an old model & did not fit the new iphones. Ocean view was nice although very obstructed - mainly looking out at other apartment blocks.
Great location central to everything can get up and go to the beach in the morning or go shopping. Im glad we personally didn't have to pay for the room because at over $400 a night room only for a standard room sleeping 2 its not really worth it!!! Staff are very friendly but but extremely slow no one seems in a rush to serve you or even acknowledge your there, waiting at reception for checkin with a painfully slow girl taking her time was frustrating. At the restaurant in hotel called cold water creek meals were just ok but very very slow service...even the lifts to and from the rooms are extremely slow. I feel as though staff are on island time but without the tropical vibe. Also this was the first hotel ever in my life I have been told its a service fee to have a wine bucket (without the wine) bought up to your room!! 5 star prices for 2 star service unfortunately but overall a 3 as rooms were clean and hotel central.
Enjoy the clean bright rooms here and they are roomy, but really give the in room dining a second thought first...coffee consistently not what ordered and always cold. Today got told sorry no skim milk so we have given you hot full cream milk with you muesli. Ok i said. Proceeded to pour the milk onto my bircher...it was room temperature CHocolate Milk! Lol...not eating that...have asked for a refund on this see how that goes. Air con quiet and at times im lucky enough to get a bath. Its just the in room dining issues....
Nice rooms and good bar/ restruant. Great location, walk to shops, restruants and beach. Has own underground car park with security gates. Some street parking available. Expresso coffee machines in rooms a bonus
Booked online through a third party but couldn't have been more impressed with the hotel. The room was lovely, immaculately clean and well equipped. The location was perfect. We didn't have a view but had a small verandah courtyard on the third floor which was sheltered from the wind. Staff were very helpful and friendly and an hours late checkout provided at no extra cost. Parking was $15. Thankfully we didn't leave as later in the day the carpark was full and friends could not get back in. There was two sporting events at the stadium that afternoon.
We stayed overnight for Beach Boys concert at WIN stadium, Wollongong. A nice large room with lovely big bath. Bed was extremely comfortable. The restaurant downstairs was very accommodating and fitted us in so that we could have a meal before going to the concert. They were heavily booked. A lovely walk along the beachfront to the lighthouse the next morning. We would definitely stay again.
We were welcomed by lovely staff who did everything to make our stay as comfortable and quiet as possible. Issue with a soap holder in the bathroom fixed very quickly. Clean and comfortable accommodation, overlooking the golf course and ocean. Highly recommended!!
Hotel very close to the beach, lovely spot. Also close to the city centre, you can both walk or drive there. Very nice bar/restaurant, opens early in the morning, til late at night, staff able to provide food 24/7. Room was very comfortable, with nice balcony, left clean every morning. Cleaning staff also left clean towels everyday, restored the bathroom with soap and whatever was needed. Coffee machine, fridge and snacks available in the room. Swimming pool and gym available from 6am to 10 pm! The only little weakness we personally found was the toilet area being a little bit smelly, but probably drainage system issue, as bathroom was very clean, no signs of dirt at all. Overall great stay! Would definitely go back again!! Close to the beach, close to the stadium and about a 10-15 minutes walk to central area as well. Great position!!
Good location near the beach and other amenities. Clean rooms, sea breezes and good business location. Bar closes too early - however I suppose they have a long day. Recommend booking ahead of time as they get busy. Right next to the stadium!
This is a very nice hotel with nice facilities. The front desk staff were lovely from arrival. The bathroom and room was huge, but you would expect this for the price ($485 for 2 nights when we stayed). What let it down was the bar and restaurant staff. I found for the level of hotel quality the staff simply meet the standard. They seemed like they didn't want to be there or help. I rang the restaurant to find out how much breakfast was and after a prolonged sigh she reluctantly told me ($28.50 for reference). The little bar where you walk into the hotel is super funky and awesome drinks unfortunately unless you tip you get service without a hi or even a smile. I'm a typical Aussie traveller who knows how much hospitality persons earn so unless your service is outstanding I won't tip you. You need to earn a tip. Also the elevators are excruciatingly slow - going back to the room from the pool we waited almost 5 minutes for it to arrive and on check out it stopped at every single floor from level 10 down. I wouldn't stay here again for the price point. I have tried the Adina and would go back there. I only stayed at the sage as it was for a wedding weekend and other guests stayed here also.
