My wife and I stayed one night and selected Novotel for the location. Price was more than we would have expected, but we booked late and wanted to be close to the beach. Can't fault the hotel on our short stay. Reception staff were friendly and efficient. Room was well appointed, clean and quiet. King bed was comfortable. Location is...

Let's be honest. You'd never get over excited at a Novotel. You know what to expect. This one is small and perfectly well formed, with some excellent staff. Doesn't slap you in the face with excitement, but feels well, 'nice'. But the location is almost perfection. Less than 50 metres to a gorgeous ocean beach and miles of coastal paths...

I stayed at this hotel 4 nights during October and was very impressed with the staff who seemed keen to assist. The location was good and Newcastle has changed quite a bit since we last went here. There are now plenty of trendy restaurants around. The hotel rooms were modern and very neat and tidy. Some rooms are smaller than...

after being totally ripped off on our booking at noahs on the beach, we headed to the novotel, who were fantastic, as soon as i told them of my bad experience at the other hotel, they offered a harbour room upgrade which was great, the view was incredible, and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. within...

Always stay here on business. Great location and friendly staff. Ocean view room and spotlessly clean. Room service food and breakfast delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommended for business travellers.

Stayed at the Novotel Newcastle Beach for 2 nights in mid November. Hotel is well located, close to the beach and a short walk to many restaurant and pubs. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was excellent despite the ambiance being quite basic and cold. Breakfast buffet was a bit average and was not replenished regularly. Parking is $20 per night...

Stayed for one night and everything was very good. The staff were very friendly and professional. The biggest surprise was that I was called the day before and asked if they could recommend and book a nearby restaurant for me!! How good is that?

Great location a very short walk from the beach. If you are a runner or a swimmer bring your gear (or a surfer). Room was very nice. Standard Novotel modern decor. Kudos to the front desk for accommodating an early checkin when I arrived following international flight to Sydney followed by train trip to Newcastle. Their flexibility was much appreciated!

We stayed at the Novotel for our 41st wedding anniversary last month and we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel. The room was quite generous in size. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The room itself was very clean and quiet. As it was our anniversary we were also surprised to receive a bottle of sparkling wine with a...
