Trusted hotel brand, NH Hotels has today announced plans for its foray into the Australian market, with the upcoming launch of NH Hotel Wollongong.

An Australian first for NH Hotel Group’s upscale and midscale brand, the new build development is set for completion in Spring 2023 and will be located in the premier position of Burelli Street in the rapidly transforming CBD of Wollongong, 80km South of Sydney.

Joining an existing portfolio of over 243 NH Hotels properties globally, which are known for their quality of service and facilities, the Wollongong property will be the ideal base for corporate and leisure travellers alike.

‘We are pleased to be launching the trusted and reputable NH Hotels brand within Australia.’ commented Craig Hooley, Chief Operating Officer for Minor Hotels Australia and New Zealand.

‘A high-profile brand throughout Europe, Latin America and Africa, we are confident that NH Hotels’ easy-going, urban and fresh service offering will be very well received in the Australian market.’


NH Hotels are invariably situated in the best city locations, which effortlessly connect guests with key corporate and leisure destinations.

NH Wollongong will be positioned in Burelli Street, in the heart of Wollongong’s emerging CBD, within walking distance to Wollongong station and WIN Sports & Entertainment Centres. In addition, the location is within close proximity to primary Wollongong beaches, affording its guest rooms premium ocean views.

‘We were eager to launch NH Hotel in Wollongong due to the exciting overhaul of the city centre, which is currently taking place in line with Wollongong Council’s commitment to grow commercial office space by 120,000m2 by 2036. Burelli Street is set to be transformed to a premium commercial street, with 10,500 new jobs expected to be created in the region.’ Said Craig Hooley, Chief Operating Officer for Minor Hotels Australia and New Zealand.

‘NH Wollongong’s position in the heart of Burelli Street renders it the ideal location for corporate travellers wanting to be close by to the office, and for leisure travellers wanting to be in the heart of the pulsing CBD.’


NH Hotel Wollongong is set to deliver 240 stylish and contemporary hotel rooms, state of the art conference and event facilities, flexible working space, advanced technology, and a fully equipped gym.

The architecture and interiors will be bold, original and energetic, creating a space with an abundance of local character.

The hotel’s restaurant and bar will offer all day dining, serving a skilfully curated menu of international cuisine. Guests can opt for the light filled and unpretentious indoor or alfresco dining spaces, or host functions in the private dining room. Also offered will be the NH Hotels’ signature buffet breakfast, renowned the world over for its quality and range.

In line with NH Hotels’ trusted brand promises, guests of NH Hotel Wollongong can expect a value for money experience that exceeds expectations, and warm service anticipating guests’ every need.

Andrew Taylor and Dale Lawrence of specialist hotel development and management advisory firm, Cre8tive Property, commented, ‘It was a great pleasure to work with the owners and NH Hotels to debut the reputable brand in Australia, and we are confident that the property will be an exceptional addition to Wollongong’s burgeoning corporate hub’.

Developers of NH Hotel Wollongong, Peter Hickey of Held Property and Joseph Di Girolamo of Next Group, said ‘We are thrilled to be working with NH Hotels to deliver Wollongong’s first purpose built, landmark hotel in the emerging commercial CBD, with its premium accommodation and restaurant offering set to serve locals and visitors to the city alike.’
