Novotel Newcastle Beach

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband & I had a lovely couple of nights at the Novotel, we were upgraded to a great room with views of the harbour from 1 window & ocean views from the other. Our room was clean and comfortable, our stay included breakfast, it was a great breakfast with the basics of eggs & bacon etc with warm pastries & great coffee. Dinner in the restaurant was faultless fresh delicious food, I had the pork belly, my husband had the steak, all in all a wonderful couple of nights.

Lovely property in great position for a short break. Staff and services were excellent, great options close to hotel. I took exception to having to pay $25 a day for parking, consider that this should be inclusive.

My wife and I stayed last Friday/Saturday (three nights). The service was impeccable; the room was spotless; the breakfast was sensational and we would not hesitate to stay there again when visiting Newcastle. On our last night we didn't feel like eating much and asked our waiter, Craig, if it would be possible to just order off the lunch menu instead of the dinner menu. It was no problem at wife had a hamburger which was possibly the best she had ever tasted and I had a delightfully tender steak sandwhich on turkish bread. To show just what a couple of sophisticates we really were, we asked for a banana split! It was terrific. Probably one of the best hotels and hotel experience we have ever had. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our stay at Novotel Newcastle Beach. The location is convenient, with short walk to the beach. The room is spacious and comfortable. We made good use of the gym, the spa and sauna. Good family hotel.

The room on our first night was excellent and the service was great too. Swimming at the nearby patrolled beach was refreshing and so good we decided to stay another night. Unfortunately the next night wasn’t as good with sub standard room smelling like damp carpet. The bar doors were broken meaning we had to walk out onto the street with drinks. The service is great though. Recommend the short walk to the Customs Hotel for an excellent dinner.

Great location, great room and very friendly and helpful staff. Secure underground parking. Walking distance to city centre and beach. Close to cafes and restaurants. $1.00 breakfast and upgraded room a bonus. Will definitely stay here again.

2 night stay as a couple, enjoyed the attached restaurant Bar Petit amazing, and the lobby breakfasts were excellent with friendly service whatever you asked for, spacious, plenty seating and a great streetscape view. Underground parking most appreciated in CBD beach area. Balcony ocean view Q room was perfect, everything super clean and working well. Service all over this hotel was so friendly and helpful, can't fault it. Must mention housekeeping, front desk and breakfast staff as exceptional. Close to the beach and cafes and restaurants. Good one Novotel. Can't wait for a return visit and do it all again.

Building is new facilities are new (at least it seems to be) and just 10 seconds to the beautiful beach! Loved the location. We got discounted buffet breakfast which was good enough. Its pretty central walking distance to everywhere . Will definitely stay here again when in town.

Very pleasant short stay. Quite modern. Spotless rooms and good service obtained. Music in neighboring properties cpuld be annoying.. Bit too expensive for what you get. Close walking range to town and foreshore area. Room service adequate.

Had a pleasant overnight at this Hotel. I was given a upgrade and thankfully so. It was a basic room with balcony with narrow glimpse of the beach.(Query Superior Deluxe?) No full length mirror...or information brochure..(smart TV) The dining room without ambience however, the staff were professional and courteous. Disappointing dinner for me, breakfast was OK! Had issues with smoke detector at 3.20 a.m. again the staff were professional and resolved this issue. The gym and spa facilities excellent but NO SWIMMING POOL and a short schlep to the ocean pool..(bogey hole) and beach , lots of stairs to negotiate!!
