The rooms are always clean, and location is close to all amenities, and staff are helpful. We have stayed many times whilst it had the Accor banner and many times as Market view, but since its now run by the Wollongong university and its starting to fail. The restaurant is not operational, the carpark, is constantly full , and you... More

The only reason I gave this hotel a 3 out of 5 is because the staff at the hotel is amazing. The hotel staff makes staying here a little comfortable. A+ to the STAFF. Hotel Room...

This is a good budget hotel close to the city, shopping centre and only a short walk to the beach. However, the rooms are tiny and there is barely room to walk around the bed, let alone room for your luggage. Unfortunately, when we went to shower late in the evening we discovered that the drain was blocked and this... More

We stayed here in january just for a night away, only paid $92 on a Saturday night! Less than half the price it would have cost us to stay anywhere in Sydney on a Saturday night. The room was small but tidy & had everything we needed including tea & coffee facilities, tv, and air conditioning. The staff were lovely,... More

It's a college dorm room, not a hotel room, people. Tiny. Carpets were disgusting and filthy. Walls had holes and damage from posters or whatever previous student put up. Bathroom was clean. I've stayed in better hostels. Get what you pay for, I suppose. On a bright note, staff was very nice. Sean, who checked us in was ver kind... More

Stayed here overnight with the family before the NYE. This was the cheapest hotel I could find online due to high peak season. And lucky I booked it in as it was a great value for money. The location was excellent - shops and the beach were walking distance. Room was clean and enough space to move around. Will definitely... More

Stayed for one night in December for a stopover on a larger road trip. We booked Marketview based on price and location and were not disappointed. Right in the heart of Wollongong CBD, we were nice and close to all the main shops and amenities one needs for a 12 hour layover. Check-in was very quick, with pre-payment taken from... More
