I had an overnight stay here courtesy of a company. Location close to Sydney airport and on the beach, so a bit nicer than the Sydney airport hotels.
Welcoming reception area but quite small, cramped lifts to rooms.
Rooms spacious with antechamber/living area, balcony window facing north to see Sydney airport and bay.
Bathroom had mould growing on ceiling over shower, fan insufficient to keep aerated. Modern looking flat screen TV but no HDMI ports (USB only). Parts of wallpaper peeling off. Bed large & comfortable.
Surprised that I had no benefits here despite being an Accor A/club member, this hotel is supposedly "independent" from Novotel chain despite its name - go figure that one. Both hotel staff and Accor help telephone line confirmed this strange arrangement.
Large breakfast served that should satisfy most despite the price.
Nice outdoor pool (about 15 m long) for swimmers like me, even if a little cold for this time of the year. Also had indoor pool but did not try it out.
I wouldn't stay here if holidaying in Sydney, too far away from city and no nearby train station. Most guests staying when I was there seemed to be Japanese tourists. As in title, this hotel needs to be refurbished to bring it into lone with its Novotel name.
