We stayed at the Novotel whilst in Newcastle for my son's wedding. The location was halfway between the ceremony and the reception. Although the hotel is very nice, I think at $249 Ocean view per night it is expensive for what you get, and the views certainly don't compare to those from Noahs.
The staff were very pleasant and very helpful. Both check in and check out were very smooth. It was a beautiful weekend weather wise, but we wondered how hot it would be in the rooms in summer. We had the air con on full blast and it was still too warm. We had a lot of family staying at the hotel and all the rooms were the same. The rooms varied in size, one of my sons had a huge room at the end of the 5th floor, great for the bridal party to get ready and have photos taken.
The bed was big and very comfortable. It was quiet, couldn't hear much street noise. Main problem we had was only 1 bulb in the bathroom, despite being reported it was not replaced - it made hair and makeup quite difficult as the only other mirror was behind the wardrobe door.
I would certainly stay there again, but would want a better deal. One relative had the same room as us on the floor below and had paid only $107 per night - booked 2 weeks before, where we booked ours 6 months earlier
Bathroom had a separate shower, which is good. I'm not even sure if there was a bath!! Everything was spotless.
I didn't work out if the bar next door was actually part of the hotel, but it was very nice, a good atmosphere, and the food was good.
Overall it was a very pleasant experience.
