4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Stayed at Novotel Newcastle for one night recently with 9 other couples so had 10 rooms all up. Hotel is in good location and easy walk to bars and restaurants on waterfront. Rooms are good quality and decent size. Only concerns for me as a Accor Platinum member are that no Platinum benefits were granted ie upgrade or welcome drinks on arrival. Therefore they need to look at taking better care of their members on high loyalty status. Breakfast was of the standard expected at a Novotel.

Dear Paul V,

Thank you for your review, we sincerely apologise that your Platinum Le Club benefits were overlooked when you arrived. We will make sure our Front Office team have refresher training as this was a lost opportunity to look after you as a very loyal Accor member. We hope that you will return and stay with us again in the near future so we can rectify our oversight.

Kind Regards
Simon Glover

The hotel was in a great location! We had an ocean view room, which was very limited in seeing the ocean with no balcony. The décor & furnishings was just a basic room & needs meet. Nothing special. Although the bed was comfortable & staff friendly.

Dear Trish S,

Thank you for your review of Novotel Newcastle Beach, we do have a limited number of rooms that have balconies on the Southern side of the building although these are very popular. We appreciate the comments in relation to our team, they work very hard to please our guests every day.

Kind Regards
Simon Glover

Four nights in well appointed and spacious quiet room, well serviced and with ocean view. Staff excellent, particularly in dining room and on one occasion extremely helpful to a guest for lunch, who has a disability. Greatly appreciated. Very secure and good lift service. Novotel for me for the future. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room was on top floor (of five) and lift was never a problem.
