Novotel Newcastle Beach
Ranked #4 of 25 Hotels in Newcastle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This Hotel is average for Newcastle, The restaurant is below ordinary and very selective when they will let you use your advantage plus discount card . It is much better to dine in the small café next door. Windows and balconies are covered in salt with no view (lower floor), charge for parking which is not good as there is no parking available elsewhere. As I said average for Newcastle as there are no decent hotels available in this region.

Dear prb48,
Thank you for your review of Novotel Newcastle Beach. We are sorry that you did not enjoy the stay with us, we have recently had all external windows at the hotel cleaned, unfortunately with our proximity to the beach we do get salt spray. We appreciate you taking the time to provide this review.
Regards
Simon Glover

With no return flights to Brisbane that evening, I took advantage of my "Free Night" with Accor. Having already booked on line, the check-in went smoothly and I was soon settled in with a good book. I then realised I hadn't packed my phone charger and after a quick call to the front desk, they returned with several different models. What great service.
The only issue I had was that I had nominated a "Harbour View" room, however from the third floor, there was very little of the harbour visible.

Great location, the rooms were quite modern and I liked that you could open the windows to get fresh air in. The water pressure in the shower was a little lack lustre, as was the basin space in the bathroom. Otherwise, a lovely hotel which met our needs for our stay. Loved Rustica restaurant!!

What a great find-this is the place to stay in Newcastle! Staff esp Rochelle and Olivia were really helpful and I loved the valet parking. The location is fantastic, just a 1 min walk to the beach! The room was sparkling clean and spacious, the steam and spa were lovely. I can't wait to go back and will always stay at the Novetel, strongly recommended.

Room Tip: Always the top room with ocean view!

A great , convenient place to stay. Hop, skip and a jump to the beach and sea pool. Slight road noise - garbage trucks in the early morning but nothing that closing the window doesn't fix!
Reception staff were so accommodating and helpful with information about the local area, eateries etc.
Buffet style breakfast keep us all satisfied. Purchased Novotel parking is a must as there is no free parking close by.
We will definately be staying here on our return visits to Newcastle!!

me and my husband loved every bit of our stay.
the hotel is close to everywhere, the only down side of it was the hotel does not have its own pool, but does have its own spa, steam room and gym
but 5 min walk is an ocean pool wihich is heaps good as it is connected to the beach
westfields are only 10 minz away.
i highly reccomend novotel newcastle beach to everyone loved every minute of it didnt want to leave.
our room was soooooo clean and beautiful as we had the superior suite
very comfortable!
and loved the housekepper cleaning room every morning as some major hotels do not do that.
