“Friendly comforts of home”
Reviewed 9 November 2009

We found the Normandie to be quite relaxing and pleasurable. The owners, Mark and Michelle, were very friendly, attentive, and went out of their way to be helpful. I would highly recommend it.

Travelled for 1 week business trip to Wollongong.
Rooms were nice and clean, service and hospitality of the owners are high grade.
The atmosphere at the hotel at the evenings is like at "home". Very cute, comfy and good hotel withing a 4min walk from a shoreline. Food is great at the restaurant. Does a bear at the bar stand still grabs a my Russian bottle? Would definetly reccoment to all.

Stayed one night in a queen room which was nicely furnished, well laid out, very clean, and had a spacious ensuite. The hosts were helpful and friendly. These are exactly the features we look for in a 3 star motel when we're on a road trip. But traffic on the road out front (Bourke St) disturbed us until the wee hours. Perhaps the rooms at the back are quieter.

I've been "living" at the Normandie VERY frequently since 2000. The owners (M&M to their many friends and clients) and staff are second to none. I wouldn't even think of trying anywhere else in Wollongong unless I was totally desperate for accommodation and the Normandie was booked out!
Anyone who has experienced the hospitality of Normandie will tell you that the place offers twice the value, service, food quality and laughs than anywhere else in Wollongong - and at a VERY reasonable rate too!!!
The rooms are nothing too flash compared to some of the large (and very impersonal) hotel chains. However, they have phones, computer points, desks and chairs, internet access, small refrigerators, telly, AC, kettle, water, en-suite bathrooms and are always clean, comfortable and very welcoming. Not that you spend too much time in the room at the Normandie anyway. You'll be too keen on spending time in the Lounge or the restaurant!
It's a great wee place to stay.

  • Liked — The staff are amazing - as is the resturant!
  • Disliked — Leaving it behind!

We loved it! The hotel and management were the best, M&M made it feel like home. The location was outstanding, walking to the beach and up the road to resturants for dinner.
