Just came back from 2 nights at Caves Beachside Hotel. It was just what we needed a few weeks prior to our first baby being due! We stayed in a Beach Suite and it was fantastic. We booked via Wotif and got a great deal which included a bottle of wine and cheese platter on arrival. The wine will have... More

We spent 6 days at this resort. The room (disabled friendly) was fabulous. We were not the easiest customers, but the staff went out of their way to make things easy and comfortable for us. The only thing I could find to complain about would be the slippery floor in the wonderful shower, which made it difficult for my husband.... More

Upon arrival was greeted by front of house whom was rude to say the least. Demanding extra money despite a phone call where a verbal agreement had been made about a change of room. Doing so saying "no no no you are wrong". However I will state the after speaking to the manager this was fixed up and the staff... More

Caves beach is located about 30 minutes from Newcastle in the Lake Macquarie Area. It is a Resort as well. We just went there to have lunch and we sat out on the outside deck overlooking the ocean. You could see the coal ships lining up to enter the Port to get loaded with coal. It was a very pleasant... More

My wife and I love it here at Caves Beach and have stayed here at this hotel more than several times. We had a Spa Suite (#5) for 8 days and were blessed with summer weather in March which made our beach stay even better. The staff here are typical friendly Aussies who will do what they can to make... More

Rooms are awesome and bed is very comfortable. Light breakfast included in price. Relative to where I had to go for work & given local providers, this would be best "luxury" option around. Food at the bistro was average. Caves beach has a windswept beauty to it. Would I stay here again? Yes.

I loved the calm and tranquillity of the Caves Beach suite. Such a great find in a region with few luxury rooms on offer. The Check-in service was immediate and super-friendly, and I was delighted to be greeted in my room with a mini-bar for free! I have never had that in any of my travels, and after a long... More

My husband and I escaped to Caves Beachside Hotel to celebrate our anniversary. We were delighted with the standard of the rooms, they were luxurious and contained everything we needed for a comfortable getaway. We were also pleased to discover a fine dining restaurant at the location which wasn't very well advertised. The food was delicious and it was handy... More

Take a book to read while you wait to order your food. And another for while you wait for it to arrive. To order a drink at the bar it's worth taking a shaver as you may well grow a beard while queuing. Once the food eventually arrived it was ok. Nothing special and served luke warm.

Spent one night with the family, 2 young kids, and found this resort quite overpriced. We were there for a wedding. Although the furniture in the double room villa where we stay was quite modern and nice I still believe that $400 per night is overpriced. It would have been ok, as there is nothing else in the area, if... More
