“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Room was beautiful, very spacious. The restaurants menu was most enjoyable for both dinner and breakfast. One observation, why do we have to pay for parking considering the room rates. Overall a wonderfully relaxing stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

It was our 34th wedding anniversary, Father's Day and as usual we have been incredibly busy so thought we would try something local rather then our normal option of going south. The Newcastle Novotel seemed an easy choice, being Accor members, and we were impressed last time we stayed. Booked "on line" and headed in, all on the same day

As expected the staff were great, parking convenient, the view beautiful, the room unusually large, very comfortable, especially the king size bed and the special surprise of a personalised card and gift in our room made it even more impressive and us feel very special.

The corridors are still a bit of a "rabbit warren" but not really a problem. Plenty of hanging space and your customary fixtures for an upmarket room. The bathroom was great with both a shower (has a water saving nozzle which I'm no fan of) and also a bathtub. A mentioned our room was large and easily could have fitted in an extra 2 king size beds.

We also enjoyed their gym, spa and steam room. Also ate in for the evening and had a great meal even if we couldn't use our Accor card. (Fathers day exclusion apparently). Also had breakfast there. An observation, not a criticism, is that their breakfast isn't near as impressive as other Novotels we have stayed at, even Ibis hotels, that still cost the same but suspect that is because it has a smaller clientele.

Decided we will become more regular visitors, even as locals, so it isn't just the tourists that enjoy staying there!

Room Tip: Make sure you get a view of the beach or harbour

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

All the staff were polite well groomed and very helpful. The hotel is in a great location close to the beach and cafes. The room was large with walkin shower and very clean. Very quiet hotel and great comfortable bed. Only place to stay while in Newcastle.
