Great Hotel Friendly Staff Excellent food Dinner and breakfast awesome. Shower nice and large with good water pressure and hot this is a bonus. Great spa and steam room. Accor just need to convey food deals purchased online when booking to all staff to avoid any confusion when ordering food. Would stay again.

I stayed here for couple of weeks (Monday to Friday) with a few colleagues and I really enjoyed it. The room set up, furniture and its cleanliness is excellent. The only downside is lack of bathtub in the bath. My room didn't have good view, but there some rooms with balcony and some other one with ocean view.

Stayed for business. Rooms fine and hotel generally in good condition, but following a Friday night wedding (with TERRIBLE music), they started to pack up the function room...at quarter past midnight. It sounded like gas bottles being rolled and banged along the floor whilst the ceiling was simultaneously dismantled. Until almost 1 AM!! A call to reception didn't resolve anything... More

Excellent rooms. Make sure you book Harbourview with floor to ceiling windows and get as high a floor as available. Nice quiet location. Easy walking to everything without the hassle of parking! Great buffet breakfast, eggs cooked to order, great coffee. Excellent dinner in the restaurant.

I was very impressed by the Novotel Newcastle. My first impression of our room was how clean it was and very spacious. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful. It was very handy to shops and beach. Would not hesitate in staying here again ;)

Dear LuxCat, Thank you for sending through your review of Novotel Newcastle Beach, we appreciate your feedback.
