“Great spot & friendly staff”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Loved it we had a corner room with two views. Harbour entrance and the beach across the road. I was impressed. Breakfast was excellent would go back that's for sure. Dinner last night was tops, we really enjoyed it. Staff very friendly , will be back. Room 418 is the best.

Stayed August 2014, travelled as a couple

Thank you for the review, the room you stayed in is one of two rooms that has the corner aspect and provide lots of light and lovely views towards the beach and the harbour. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the stay with us and hope to see you back again soon.

I was very impressed by the Novotel Newcastle. My first impression of our room was how clean it was and very spacious. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful. It was very handy to shops and beach. Would not hesitate in staying here again ;)

one of the best things about this hotel is the location. very convenient to restaurants and cafes. Spanish restaurant 100m down the road was a knock out. rooms where comfortable enough. we payed extra for an ocean view room which we didn't take advantage of and when we did look out was not that great. also they are constructing on the land next door so I don't know for how long they will have ocean view in the room we got as it will definitely obscure. staff where nice and professional and the bar down stairs was pleasant.

Room Tip: not really worth paying extra for ocean view.

Dear LuxCat,

Thank you for sending through your review of Novotel Newcastle Beach, we appreciate your feedback. The Spanish restaurant down the road (Bocardos) is really excellent we always get great feedback about their food and atmosphere. The construction site next door will have some impact on the long term views from the rooms on the Southern side of the building, we will of course re-classify these if they are affected.

We thank you again for your comments and hope to see you back again soon.

Kind Regards

Fantastic position overlooking the ocean in the centre of Newcastle CBD. We stayed on the 4th floor & had a balcony looking south towards the ocean baths. The room was large, clean and comfortable for a short stay. The staff were pleasant and helpful, giving us a map of the surrounding area & recommending places to eat. The hotel was difficult to find without a map as it is located at the end of a dead end street, but once there it was within walking distance of many of Newcastle's attractions.

Dear mellyg3,

Thank you for the kind review, we appreciate you sending through your feedback. In relation to finding the hotel if you have a GPS it can try and steer you to an alternate King Street, if you are driving to the hotel and coming down Newcastle Road off the freeway you can just stay on the same road until it terminates at the beach and you will find us there.

We hope that you will come back and stay with us again soon.

Kind Regards
