Susan Friends - 19/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

As a gift to dear friends who live in country NSW I booked them a 2 night stay. The location meant that “walkability” to venues & great Newcastle scenic walks were a great bonus. I ensured that the booked room had a view of the harbour which was greatly appreciated by my friends.

Great restaurant and location

We enjoyed the experience and the staff and chef in the restaurant really made up welcome with their fantastic meal at 8 pm because we were on a late flight into Newcastle.

Gorgeous and convenient

We were greeted by very friendly staff . We were upgraded to room 426 it had a balcony overlooking the beach which was very nice. My husband and li enjoyed a glass of wine and a cheese platter sitting on the balcony enjoying the View of the beach. Breakfast was also very nice. An enjoyable night stay.

Novatel Newcastle Beach is a good hotel, especially for business travelers. Plenty of places to eat and drink around, good for a morning walk. Only thing I could suggest to the management would be to wash the windows. Being close to the beach, I understand they will get dirty quickly. The external windows were very dirty, to point that I ended up closing the curtains so I could not see them. I watched a guy swinging from a nearby hotel washing windows and hoped he would come to this one next. The only blemish on a very good stay.

Libby Families - 28/06/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The location was great however we were very disappointed in the location of our room. We stayed I'm room 216 and we had a baby in a pram which was clear from our booking and check in. To get to our room we had to go through multiple small doors which made manoeuvring the pram very difficult. We also noticed when we walked past to our room the kitchen door was frequently open and it looked untidy.

The staff have been great especially at the bistro. My only issue was with the ventilation in the room, it wasn't comfortable with the AC on and much rather prefer to have more windows to allow fresh air in.

This is a great location. Close to the beach. Some nice restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend and will return. The only negatives are - Our room wasn't cleaned one day , no reason or apology from the Hotel and Parking expensive.

Beautiful location

Room was clean and spacious. Beautiful location being so close to beach! Many pubs and eateries close by. Tram short walk to take you to many more eateries and locations in Newcastle. Perfect location really. Friendly and helpful staff. So polite and happy.

Birthday Getaway with Friends

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

dryder22 28/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

We booked the Novotel with friends to celebrate birthdays of 2 members. From the moment we arrived we were greated with a friendly smile and courtesy. We received an upgrade to a King room with a sea view and large balcony, along with a birthday greeting and a bottle of bubbly in each room which was very much appreciated and thoroughly enjoyed. Meals in the Dining Room were of a high quality and very competitively priced. All the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and a credit to the hotel. We would certainly recommend this hotel and stay there again.

Great base for a walking tour of Newcastle and using Knobby's and Newcastle beaches. Bar/cafe could open for longer hours. DInner meals at the restaurant are great value and tasty. There was some problem with the lifts and doors to the hotel when we were there as well.

Disappointing

Kim D 19/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

Booked the restaurant for Valentine dinner, when we saw it cancelled as more like a cafeteria. When getting our complimentary drink the attitude of the staff member was bad. In the room the bathroom floor had a lot of hair on it. Initially the spa wasn't working had to get reception staff to help, 1/2 hour later they had it working. Reception staff very good. Overall a disappointing stay.
