when Darren first booked the room he requested a parking bay outside the room.when we checked in our room did not have a parking bay outside, so we had to move to the otherside where the veiw was not as good. but overall the holiday was great and the staff very helpful. janice found opening the outside sliding door very hard to open, this was said to be a sucktion matter because of cyclones. however if there was a fire this would of made it hard for janice to get out of the room.

Stayed here several times since it opened - the only real top-end option in Exmouth. Apartments are spacious and modern - the single bedroom units can easily sleep a couple of kids in the lounge area. Pool is excellent, although gym is quite small. Restaurant is one of the best in town - though a little expensive (most are in Exmouth). Only drawback has been slow service with room issues when the hotel was full.

Nicely situated close to the sea and not too close to Town. Maintenance service, if when required, excellent and prompt, but restaurant expensive for class of service delivered as mainly backpacker (young travellers) staff utilised. For the prices charged you would expect a more personalised table service, especially when not too busy. You have to remember though this is a very isolated part of the World, which in itself makes the stay very rewarding. Nicely positioned for a day trip to the national Park and especially a trip up Yardie Creek.

After staying at the Novotell Exmouth my husband and I were blown away by this unique gem in a great area of Australia. The appartments were fantastic, in fact we kept saying we would like to live in one like this. The resort facilities were great, mu husband used the gym everyday and said it was one of the best gyms he had seen in a resort. All the staff were excellent, very helpful and friendly (including the housekeepers)

We would certainly stay there again (in a flash) and recommend it to anyone

Great hotel, the girls on reception were wonderful and on our road trip around Western Australia this was the best buffet breakfast. The variety and presentation of food was superb.

We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was pretty good, although a little pricey.
