This is a well positioned but busy Hotel. It is expensive for what you get. You pay extra for parking which is an unnecessary gouge when the rack rate is already high. The parking is unsatisfactory with tight spaces and low ceiling with pipes and the like attached. An SUV is not the ideal vehicle to take. Drinks in the... More

Got this as a mystery/secret hotel for one night and was quite excited. What a bargain! Unfortunately, when I arrived to my room my toilet was um...unclean. It was a plumbing issue rather than its not having been serviced. I was horrified and went back to reception to report it. The young male staff member handled the situation professionally and...

Novotel Northbeach is a fairly standard 3.5 star hotel/motel, not quite 4 stars. The room was dated. The bathroom was old, had some grime on the tiles and an old shower curtain. Also, while my partner and I found the bed mattress quite comfortable, the sheets and blankets were very thin. However, it was clean and had a lovely view... More

I booked here for a weekend break, got a good rate and was looking forward to it. First issue was my car getting blocked in by bridal party cars when dropping off our bags. Second issue was the lobby bar was like Central Station at rush hour - it was packed to the gills with wedding guests drinking. It was... More

Location is great, lovely spot near the beach. When we checked in, we though the lobby looked like a lovely place to sit and have a quiet drink in the evening (as there isn't much else in the area). Unfortunately the entire lounge area was fully occupied by a wedding reception from mid afternoon until well after we went to... More

I stayed here recently and had a great time. Right opposite the beach and close to cafes. The rooms were a decent size and clean plus the beds were comfortable. I found the staff to be very accommodating. The only downside was breakfast was a bit pricey at over $30 pp.
