We stayed overnight on Christmas night after family get together in Newcastle. Overall the stay was disappointing. The only commendation was the lovely welcome given by front of house staff on arrival. The room was pretty ordinary, dark, even in daytime. It felt tired and not really properly clean. For the price we paid ($440) one would have expected better....

The room was bright and the interior design was aesthetically pleasing. The bed was absolutely comfortable and the bathroom was lovely. The breakfast buffet was delicious with a huge variety of food and the coffee was perfect each time. It was exactly what I needed for a two-day holiday away from the hustle and bustle of life. Not to mention,...

Overnighted here in order to attend a sporting fixture. While our room only had a view of another building, the facilities were spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed was enormous! There was a range of different pillows (some soft, some hard) to suit different preferences. Dining facilities are limited, but we were able to access a lovely bar next door,...

Very nice accommodation - the rooms were nicely decorated, very clean and roomy. We had a room with an ocean view and a balcony, shame the weather was horrendous as I'm sure we would have enjoyed sitting out enjoying the view. Great coffee down in the bistro and all the staff were very helpful and friendly.

We had a great 3 day break in Newcastle that turned out to be a surprise package. The hotel is in a great location and close to Newcastle beach (50m). The rooms are comfortable, quiet and clean. The breakfast is OK and cappuccino coffees are served at no extra cost. There are plenty of eateries around the hotel as well...

Our first stay in Newcastle for a very long time and we were pleasantly surprised. This is a great destination and place to stay for walking proximity to clean beaches, restaurants and bars in the city centre. The Novotel is a clean and comfortable Hotel offering parking underneath, daily papers and a cool outside lounge area at ground level. There...

We stayed at the Novotel newcastle beach in December 2015. The rooms were clean and spacious and the location is fantastic, within walking distance to newcastle beach, cafes and shops. The highlight during our stay was the fantastic customer service both during booking and at the restaurant. I had some dietary restrictions and the waiter at breakfast went out of...

Awesome service from the moment we entered the building. Even though we only stayed 1 night night and it was our first time there, they made us feel like we were long time visitors . Loved the special turning down if the bed and the little chocolates that surprised us after returning later that night . Would love to stay...

This was a good choice. The hotel was comfortable - we had a superior family room which was spacious and comfortable. The TV is a little small for size of room and could really only be watched from one of the beds. Hotel movies only last for 12 hours which is out of step with other hotels we have visited...
