Great location, casual unpretentious atmosphere and terrific location. The rooms are modern and sparkle. I would definitely stay here again. The location is probably its greatest advantage as you walk to the ocean or walk into the CBD. There are a number of excellent eateries nearby as well as some great cafes for a more casual meal or drink. Newcastle... More

I chose Novotel Newcastle ocean view room as I wanted a beautiful view of the beach. It was only an ocean glimpse with construction views. I feel very strongly that the room was not worth $275.00 and next time I would choose Noah's. Ooh and I also found a cockroach in the toilet paper...never staying here again.

Stayed overnight at the Novotel Newcastle, everything was good. Large studio room, good tv. Convenient location and underground parking. Restaurants nearby, right near the beach. Recommend staying here for a weekend in Newcastle.

As a local this is a great place to stay in town when you have a celebration. Close to some great restaurants and bars. Great for a stroll or ride along the beaches in the morning. Plenty of coffee places in the mall and on the beaches.

Very nice hotel, thought it was right on the water by the pictures but it is not. Paid extra for harbour view but only a glimpse through buildings. The room was very clean and a nice decor. We had dinner at the Dalby Bistro and the meal was very very nice. Only problem was the waitress did not write down... More

Great beachside location, plenty of restaurants and cafe's close by. Friendly staff with great knowledge of the local area. Large, clean and stylish room but no bath tub. Spa was broken (not all jets working) but there was no sign. Unfortunately no pool or sauna but there is a steam room. Over night parking rate is $18.00 but there is... More

The room at I had was very large with a view of the apartments across the road (the old nurses home from the now demolished hospital). The breakfast buffet is very basic and I was not offered any a la carte menu. Parking is $15 per night. The wifi access charges are nothing short of price gouging. $10 for 2... More

A very good hotel for business visits particularly. Clean, modern & convenient with good sized rooms. Staff not as friendly as they could be (or should be) but overall a good, quiet place to stay. The ubiquitous extra charges such as parking and internet are annoying and over the top.
