This place is perfectly placed but do not bother for breakfast! Dreadful menu and ridiculous music that is more suited to an evening venue. If the management put any effort into the breakfast market they could own it - locals want to support this venue but they make it hard with average food. Staff is friendly, atmosphere is great, decor... More

Can't ask for a better location, right by the beach and handy for local coffee ships and restaurants. The hotel is clean and friendly, very comfortable rooms. Loved the food and the hotel bar area.. a great buzz

Before booking at the Novotel Northbeach, I had read a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor, and was aware that only half the hotel had been refurbished. The general consensus of the reviews is to ensure you a) book directly through the hotel and b) request a refurbished room - both of which I did. I also called the day before... More

Hotel is partially renovated, and not before time. The room I was allocated had a good view of the ocean and coast north. Inside it was well below par. The carpet was lifting and raised. the paintwork on the blue wall was extensively chipped and scratched, two light globes were blown and hadn't been replaced (lazy maintenance). I stayed here...

Staying at the Novotel Northbeach is a really pleasurable experience. With a great beachside location and very spacious, well appointed rooms the hotel is great for a short break from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Some floors have been recently renovated and are much improved compared to the original look. Only limited choices for eating inhouse however there are... More

Second visit to hotel, great location across the road from beach. Cafes and restaurants within walking distance. Hotel feels a little dated but well maintained. Rooms very comfortable, the room i stayed in recently appeared to have had bathroom renovated. Nice breakfast area and car parking available under the hotel. Would stay at this hotel again.
