We have just returned from a 2 night stay over the June long weekend. Our package was for a harbour view room with breakfast included and it was quite good value. Our room (510) was a good size, clean, nicely furnished and the king bed was oh so comfortable! I liked the bathroom products (replenished daily) and the white bathrobes. The buffet breakfast was delicious each morning... plenty of options and coffee to order. The hotel is in a great location with everything within walking distance, in fact, our car never left the parking garage the whole weekend. Parking was $18 per night. The staff at this hotel are exceptional! Their professionalism and friendliness make you feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We didn't have dinner at Bistro Dalby or take advantage of in-room dining, preferring to explore the harbour foreshore precinct.

If I had to pick one negative, it would be the street noise (revellers and traffic)... one night it was particularly noticeable. But having said this, it's not the fault of the hotel (though double-glazing of the windows would help), it was a holiday weekend and the garbage truck was doing it's early morning run as well.

We will definitely stay again and recommend the Novotel.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms may be a little quieter than the harbour view rooms when it comes to street noise.

Great modern decor in room, comfy bed and large shower, harbour view rooms are a bit of stretch can see a bit of water in between buildings. Breakfast was good, nothing special typical buffet breakfast. Dinner was very nice.

Room Tip: Don't have high expectations of a harbour view if booking this room type

This is a very pleasant hotel with friendly efficient staff and clean and comfortable rooms. I'm not sure that any rooms actually have a view of the beach but it is nearby. We were only on the 3rd floor and looked out on a building site but it was still quiet.

Perfect location as I was attending the Newcastle SLSC Annual Surf and Turf Obstacle Race.Staff very pleasant and helpful, the spacious room top notch, great gym and spa. A very good buffet breakfast,I would like to have seen pancakes on the menu, the barista coffee is splendid.
A great weekend only spoilt by by an invoicing error,I was told I would have to wait a week for a refund.I found this rather odd,especially when it was not of my doing.
But I will certainly stay again,a great improvement from when it was branded Sebel.

Dear Brad M,
Thank you very much for the review of Novotel Newcastle Beach. We appreciate your kind comments regarding the hotel, breakfast in particular. We do rotate menu items so sometimes there are pancakes available on the menu. We apologise again for the error with the invoicing on departure, we appreciate your understanding.
Kind Regards
