“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Had lunch with family members at the restaurant of the hotel. I often come here with family, friends and even on my own, when in town. There are so many aspects of this restaurant which make it a "must" for anyone visiting the city. Firstly, it is directly across from the beach and the view of the ocean is breathtaking. The service, too, is superb and leaves absolutely nothing to be desired. It is prompt, attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The lady manager is a study in unflappable efficiency and in genuine care for guests. She welcomes arriving guests by name. It's a small thing but highly indicative of the importance given to the personal touch. The delicious taste and eye-catching presentation of the food alone would put this restaurant in a category all its own in this seaside city.
It is always a culinary delight to break bread here!

Comfortable, stylish, and great service in a great location. Went to bed to the sounds of the ocean. Woke up with great views of the beach and rolling waves. Depending on the time of year you can even see the humpback whales migrating north or south - even from the restaurant. The bathroom was immaculate. The room I stayed in (101) also looked wheelchair/disability friendly.
There are a number of good cafes and restaurants in walking distance from the hotel in case you've already tasted everything from the restaurant. For fish and chips, and other ice seafoods, you can't go past "Scotty's" at the end of the street. Hit the Grain Store to taste some of the regions wonderful boutique beers or enjoy the classic bar in the foyer. Some (most?) of the balconies are locked, but that's barely an issue - just walk across the road and you're on the beach!
If you want to immerse yourself in Newcastle's beach/metropolitan/foodie vibe then Noah's is hard to beat.

Room Tip: The ocean views are great though if you want a quieter room get one further from the beach and roads...

Did a couple of nights here mid week and really enjoyed it. Rooms are well appointed with cable TV. The only downside was that the balconies look to be from a bygone era and so are not able to be used, with the balcony door on a deadlock that you can only open 10cm or so. We were there in winter, so it wasn't a problem and the views are terrific. Great array of options at breakfast too.

The location is good and we were able to walk to nearby Darby St to check out the Art gallery and the local cafe district.

Room Tip: We were on level 4 of 6 but it looked like all rooms had good views.

The location is perfect in warmer months. The bar is very nice and restaurant has a great reputation and deservingly so although pricey. The current peeves are that the rooms are dated and the balconies are not accessible due to concrete cancer. The reception ladies Denise & Louise were so efficient and friendly. They ensured me that new balconies are happening very soon. However in the interim if you are like me and like to have a balcony, ensure you get a good deal here to compensate doing "without" in the interim.

We have stayed at this hotel a few times over the years when up in the Hunter for family celebrations but I think it was better this time than previously. The room rate is quite reasonable and the quality and layout of the rooms are very comfortable, especially the bed. We chose the harbour view room which provided an interesting view rather than the beach view. We had drinks in the bar on arrival and then ordered a steak burger from room service which was absolutely melt-in-the mouth delicious and cooked to perfection. We'll stay there again.

Room Tip: The choice is the beach view or the harbour view? Depends on how much time you will spend in the ro...

My husband and I spent the weekend at Noah three years ago and we loved every minute of it. We decided to pop in again for just one night and I don't think we will be coming back. The room itself has seen better days but it was clean. The dinner at Jonah's Restaurant was a highlight - both the food and the service were spot on. Breakfast on the other hand was a let down - boring continental brekkie with limited options and instant coffee! Beautiful breakfast a la carte gone! Staff looking bored. Big thumbs down for not communicating to housekeeping which room has late checkout - promised sleep-in interrupted by housekeeping keen to clean up!

We enjoyed our weekend in this hotel which is right on the beach, with beautiful ocean views,
However it was somewhat spoiled by the inefficiency & attitude of staff at checkout.
We had booked online, 2rooms with Oceanview , to attend a family reunion .
On arrival , we paid in full ( staff request) for both rooms & were issued with a receipt .
On checkout, staff were insistent that we had not paid , despite presentation of our receipt, & wasted 30 mins of our time scrutinising their computer . They were terse, unsmiling, ungracious & unapologetic when the issue was finally resolved .
This was a shame, because until then we had enjoyed our weekend. The hotel is clean, comfortable & well appointed.
The only other small disappointment we had was that on returning to the Hotel following a function, at 2200, there was no food available in the restaurant. Apart from melted ice cream .
Considering this is a 4 star property , this was disappointing .
