Quality Hotel NOAH'S On The Beach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Older style building but clean and tidy. Best position in town overlooking the beach on one side and overlooking the harbour on the other. Wouldn't matter which side you stayed as view is awesome. Walk into town in 5 minutes and just around the corner from a fantastic brewery.

This hotel is right next to Newcastle beach, and the location is also good for the shops in the main part of town. There is also free carparking under the hotel and several restaurants and cafes within walking distance. The rooms are quiet but the decor is a little dated. The water flow in the shower is weak. A great choice for a stay in Newcastle.

Oh Newcastle, such a lovely place. I lived here years ago and wanted to make sure I was close to the beach when I visited again this time as a tourist. Noah's arguably has the best hotel view in the city. We booked an ocean view room and even from the second floor it was fantastic. The rooms are suitable with comfy beds, decent enough bathrooms and enough amenities to make your stay worthwhile. This includes small but useful conveniences like free WiFi and few newspapers each morning in the lobby. We didn't use a hirecar but that was ok. You're within walking distance to plenty of nice beach walks and no shortage of cafes and restaurants. Enjoy. Keep the balcony door ajar to fall asleep to the thundering surf.

Thanks Nick for your cheerful,friendly greeting upon our arrival. Though quite small, the room was clean and well presented with an excellent view of Newcastle Beach from our balcony. We had a lovely afternoon watching the whales and surfers. We dined in the evening at the in house restaurant Jonah's. Special thanks to our waitress Crystal for her superb and prompt service all night. Her beautiful smile and friendly nature made us feel right at home. Compliments to the chefs for our mouthwatering meal. Everything was presented to an exceptional standard. Had a great sleep in a very comfortable bed and look forward to another stay in the future.

We recently stayed here for one night and had high expectations based on the photos online, but found it to be dated and tired. Check in had 2 ladies on the desk, one helped the customer who got out of the lift at the same time as us and the other was on the phone the whole time, so we waited for over 5 minutes. The view from the room is what you're paying for. We went for the mid-level ocean view, not sure how they can charge different rates for different floors as it's all pretty much the same... Room felt like a standard country town hotel, all dated wooden furnishings and old bath tiles etc. Photos make it to be something different, but it's not. For the $230 that you're spending, breakfast should be included but it wasn't. $1 was taken off mu credit card too which I'm unsure as to why, and we stayed 2 weeks ago but it hasn't been reimbursed yet. Would go somewhere else next time for this price.

The hotel is brilliantly located right next to the beach. We only stayed one night and opted for the cheaper city view room but I can imagine the views from the ocean facing rooms to be spectacular. Rooms were spacious and spotless although well maintained, the decor was more than a little dated. We loved the free wifi, free parking and the close proximity to both the beach and to town. It's worth joining the hotel rewards programme, as you can score a room with great rates. The rooms won't win any beauty contests but this rooms here have views, location and a price tag that are hard to beat.

This place may appear dated on the outside but is great on the inside. Good value and great location. Staff were wonderful and views were amazing of the beach and area. Parking available on site and variety of restaurants and cafes nearby. Good walking area as well.

Nice hotel with views of the beach and own balcony. Breakfast was nice, dinner was exceptional. Only annoying thing was spa was broken in my room so had the ordinary bath and taxi had to be requested through reception multiple times as didn't show up on both occasions which made me late to my meeting, although this is not the hotels fault I felt like the urgency of my request wasn't taken seriously.

This review is hard. The hotel is very ordinary. Think 1980 's. Apricot in all its glory. But it was clean and my room had the most amazing view. I felt like I was sitting on top of the beach. And what a beach. It was beautiful. So 10/10 for location and view if you get a room that faces the beach. Probably a 5/10 for the room it self. But hey how often do you get to wake up to the sound of the Pacific Ocean ??? If you can get a room that looks over the beach and you get up early for a walk along the beach you will quickly forget the apricot hotel room.

We arrived early and requested for an early check-in and we got it within 1 hour of arrival. The front desk lady was very helpful and checked us in quickly. We got an ocean view room and the view is just fantastic! The room and bathroom amenities are just adequate. The balcony was a bit small and did not have any chairs so you have to be standing to enjoy the views. I think two small chairs anchored to the floor (to prevent any accidents when strong winds come) might make the experience even better. The buffet breakfast was very reasonable and food choices were adequate. Over-all, the hotel's price per night is very reasonable and the facilities are just right for the price they charge.
