We stopped by here to eat. I couldn't find the restaurant and stood next to the man at reception who ignored me for a full 5 minutes while he put a number into an eftpos machine manually.....not looking up once! Without apology he gave me directions. We ordered but it took ages, however the food was beautiful and worth the... More

We have just returned from our Anniversary weekend at this lovely spot nestled away, leaving you feeling your miles away from the hustle & bustle. Check-in was done with a warm greeting & the staff were nothing short of helpful full of any information that was required. We had booked a Spa Suite, #8 for 2 nights, which left us... More

Food was excellent and was served to table quickly. Spicy squid was delish. Only downfall is a glass of coke $4.20 that's very expensive considering it out of a gun. May as well drink beer at that price. That's the only let down but resort and pub is nice and terrace has great views

We spent a long weekend at the "Resort" in one of the rooms near the beach. Very nice and private (we followed the tips for the more private rooms) with good fixtures and fittings. We used the Bistro Restaurant on the Friday night and the more private one on the Saturday with no problems. Service was quick and professional with... More

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
