Holidays with Kids checks into…

Novotel Wollongong Northbeach

Having recently undergone a multi-million dollar renovation, Holidays with Kids thought we ought to head down south and check out the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach

With uninterrupted views of Wollongong beach and only 1.5 hours out of the Sydney CBD, this iconic beachside property makes for the perfect family weekend getaway.

We arrive shortly after 2pm and have a speedy check-in before making our way up in the elevator to the 10th floor. We’re staying in one of the properties suites, perfect for families with a king bed and fold-out sofa. In between the two sits a TV cabinet with a revolving disc to spin the TV around to face either the lounge or bed, which is sure to keep the little ones entertained.

After checking out the incredible views from the balcony of the tri-coloured ocean, we take ourselves on a tour of the hotels facilities. Gym: check. Pool: check. Restaurant, bar, kids’ play area: check, check, check!

With the littlies eager to get up close to the beach, we meander across the road and find ourselves sitting in the late afternoon sun outside the North Wollongong Surf Life Saving Club.

Before the sun starts to set (thank you daylight savings!) we head back across the road to Pepe’s for some nibbles (the kids mini sliders were a hit), and a cocktail jug for us keeps everyone happy.

Adult bellies start to rumble so we tuck the kids into bed with a movie and get the recommendations of the best digs around town for dinner. The front desk team recommends Bombora and we head straight there for a seafood fix. My partner loved the seafood platter for one while I went for the asparagus risotto.

There’s no need for alarm clocks here as the sun shines its rays into our room and wakes us up in time for the delicious all you can eat buffet breakfast in the Windjammers restaurant downstairs.

The kids loved the pancake-making machines and for us adults it was all about the coffee!

Oh and did we forget to mention the best bit? You can enjoy a complimentary copy of Holidays with Kids every time you stay in a Novotel property anywhere around Australia! Copies can now be found in all rooms and suites. Happy holidaying… and planning of your next!
