"Wife needs light"
19th September 2013, Birdynumnum45, Newcastle, Australia
Great service. Can be noisy if you stay on the harbour side. Complained on previous stay the bathroom lighting is totally inadequate for the wives, girlfriends or significant other to put on their make up. Nothing has been addressed in the year since then. Made mention of it again, so let's see if they really listen to their customers.
"Clean rooms with sea view."
18th September 2013, elicreek, Brisbane, Australia
Stayed a few nights on business trip. Clean and comfortable room. Shower but no bath. Staff efficient. Didn't have the breakfast as I had it at the cafe opposite (just didn't want a full buffet breakfast). Bed comfortable and slept well. Only issue was wind howled at night when a change came through. The windows didn't have a complete seal and therefore whistled a bit. Minor issue though in what was a pleasant stay.
"Great hotel, great location!"
18th September 2013, CMSydney, Sydney, Australia
Positive Stuff: This hotel was in a great location, very close to the beach and local cafes, friendly staff, quiet and clean room. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. Things they could improve: Parking was an extra daily cost and there was no free wifi (a standard in most decent global hotels these days). I also paid extra for an ocean view room however there was not much ocean to see from Room 413! Four days after check out and i am still waiting for my security deposit to be released from my credit card. Perhaps these are just teething issues...?
"Overnight stay and explore newcastle east"
18th September 2013, bob_harrison_hfa, Sydney, Australia
Apparently recently done up: very nice decor, in excellent condition.Top front desk service for checkin and departure from Rochelle.Breakfast was good variety, fresh and the Barista's coffee was tops.

unfortunately we could only stay 1 night but the staff were very friendly, curtious and helpful. they were all well presented and the accommodation was clean and tidy and very nice. The bed was soooo comfortable we didn't want to get out of it. The Novotel is very well situated so close to beaches and shops. Couldn't fault it.
"A very nice hotel"

The hotel was very well presented. All the staff are very friendly. The room was very clean, the breakfast and dinner was excellent. Location was superb. This was the second time that we stay in this hotel, me and my husband love this place.We'll definitly come back again.

The stay at the Novotel is Very Good. The only issue I have is the $18 per day parking.I think its excessive! I am not saying it should be free but I though perhaps $5 per day would be more appropriate.

I like an ala carte menu for breakfast , in addition to the buffet, for those that want a small breakfast. Otherwise, the buffet is superb. The rooms are big, clean. A short walk to the beach. Modern and new decor.
"Loved this hotel"
4th September 2013, helbob5719, Newcastle, Australia
The room was modern and clean, fantastic location. would definitely recommend.The only negative was that I rang re parking options and was told they had parking and to buzz reception on arrival, no mention of any fees!On check out was charged $18 for 1 nights parking. Would have liked to be told as I would have made other arrangements. The girl on reception in the morning when we checked out was rude .The girl on the previous evening was friendly, polite and informative (except the fee) and made us feel welcome.Overall would say this is a great place to stay!

Towel's were all starting to fall apart and the room was quite noisy being right near a kitchen. Great location though and nice to be able to walk down to the beach. Cant comment on food I didn't eat within the hotel.View management response »
Management responseDear goodtimesaussie,Thank you for taking the time to review Novotel Newcastle Beach, we apologise that your towel was damaged as a result we have conducted a stocktake of our toweling and replaced some of the stock. The towel should never have been placed in your room and we apologise that this was missed prior to arrival.Thank you for your kind feedback regarding our location and we hope you will stay with us again in the future.Kind RegardsSimon Glover

Friendly, helpful staff. Great room - large, comfortable bed, good being able to open windows. First hotel I've been in where the room doors don't slam during the night and the hotel was full. Close to beach so would be fantastic in summer. Easy work to Honeysuckle precinct.View management response »
Management responseDear 54Mouse,Thank you for taking the time to review Novotel Newcastle Beach, the hotel is located in a wonderful part of Newcastle that is being transformed with lots of new bars, restaurants, etc. We appreciate your kind comments on the hotel and hope to see you back again soon.Kind RegardsSimon Glover

As a frequent traveller and Accor Advantage plus member I have stayed at many Novotels around the world, on a positive this Hotel was very modern with clean with spacious rooms, location is reasonably good and is not to far a walk to the main restaurant area and boardwalk. The Superior harbour view rooms are not exactly what you may think, we overlooked the YHA hostel with the harbour in the distance. The gym did not have any water facility at all, which is a first time for me. We decided to dine in the restaurant, the quality of food was excellent, and service was quick but staff efficiency and professionalism, were a 1 out of 5, even though they seemed under staffed. Due to the design it felt as though you were dining in the Lobby area as the tables flowed through to reception in an open plan design. I would stay there again although would consider dining out next time.

The hotel staff were friendly and very professional. The rooms are modern. However our balcony had not been cleaned and there was cigarette ash on the ground. The view was not the best. We had more of a view of a building site than of the ocean but the location was great.View management response »
Management responseDear hennie87,Thank you for taking the time to review Novotel Newcastle Beach, we sincerely apologise for the cigarette ash on your balcony this should have been completely cleaned prior to your arrival. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention, we will discuss this with the room attendant to avoid a future occurance.Kind RegardsSimon Glover
"Kodak at Novotel Newcastle Beach"
16th July 2013, KodakBrandyHill, Brandy Hill
Novotel Newcastle Beach is in a fantastic location, right in the CBD yet quiet, seconds from Newcastle beach, easy to get to by car, rail, bus and only 30 minutes south of Newcastle airport. This hotel will not disappoint, rooms are a good size, lots of views, comfortable bed, spotlessly clean, modern decor, bathroom good. Breakfast was enjoyable. Dinner well worth having whilst staying here. Staff friendly, carparking easy to negotiate. Walking distance to many Newcastle attractions, Sea baths, Newcastle Beach, Christchuch Cathedral, Nobby's beach &lighthouse. Will stay here again. Kodak

We stayed only one night but could not fault our time there. All staff were friendly and helpful. The amenities in the bathroom were very nice, the bed was SO comfortable, the room was quiet and we had a great sleep. Breakfast was varied and delicious. Good location, very handy to beach and city. No swimming pool is the only negative.
"Service, Facilities, Location!"
1st July 2013, PhilippaLowe, Wollongong, Australia
Can recommend the Novotel Newcastle Beach. Nothing is a problem, even offering to bring up my coffee rather than expecting me to wait for it. (And it was good coffee!) The gym, though basic, is adequate with cardio equipment, a weight machine and some dumbells. The rooms are spacious and I slept so well, even on the first night which is usually a bit of turn and toss experience. And, of course, the location is wonderful with a short stroll taking you onto Newcastle Beach with great walks in either direction to Nobby's Head or King Edward Park.
