We stayed at the Novotel Ningaloo Resort for a quick escape from Sydney, with the main aim of whale shark diving. The resort is close to the centre of town and the pool is lovely and it's a very quiet and relaxing resort. The standard rooms are particularly large...which was a pleasant surprise. A good sized refrigerator, toaster, kettle made... More

The Novotel Ningaloo Resort is situated right on the beach. It is a little bit out of town, however you don't need to head in to the town centre for anything. The rooms are well appointed and are pretty big.

The hotel is on the edge of town - approx 4 kms from the centre so be aware if you do not have a car. The hotel fits in well with the surroundings and the rooms are well appointed and spacious. Beautiful fluffy towels and a large comfortable bed. The TV was dated. The beach is only metres away which... More

This hotel is generally up to the Novatel standard, but is still in 'completion mode' and bedding down its operation, so as others have mentioned, the staff sometimes seem a little unsure of procedures. But, hey, you're on holiday so cut them some slack. The property is 5 kms from town on the beach, and adjacent to a marina. Until... More

This hotel is located in the newcmarina of Exmouth. The marina is not yet finished, and there is little entertainment in this area. Within walking distance there is Whalers restaurant, the city center is 5 -10 minutes by car. But, there is not a lot of reason to look for food and drnk outside this excellent hotel. The bar and...

We visited Ningaloo in February 2014, on arriving to Exmouth we did not expect to find this modern, bright and airy hotel where the staff are so friendly and know a lot about the coastline. Although we didn't stay long we really wish that we did, but like everything you only have a limited time when on holiday!

We stayed here in two adjoining rooms for 5 nights. The hotel is beautiful, modern and well maintained so absolutely no complaints there. However I think they have a way to go before they can reasonably claim a 4.5 star rating. We are pretty relaxed travellers and I think it's fair to say it takes us a bit longer than... More

We stayed in Exmouth for three nights as a family of five (kids 5 to 9years) and Novotel Ningaloo definitely worked well for us. First of all, the quality of the staff is what stands out. Everyone was hugely helpful, friendly and the whole staff put many much more prestigious city hotels to shame. Very international staff too. The kids... More

While Exmouth has grown on me and is quiet and charming in its own way, it is not the prettiest of towns as in, there isn't much to see in Exmouth itself. However the Novotel has done a good job of making you feel like you a miles from nowhere and providing the creature comforts you may need and want,... More

We stayed at the Novotel Ningaloo for 4 nights and loved it. The location can't be beat and the staff go above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect. We had some issues with a/c not working in our room and we were taken care of right away and moved to another room whilst ours was being fixed.... More
