This was a weekend break for a family occasion. The service and assistance provided by the staff was excellent. This was especially so in the case of the dinning / restaurant staff – were nothing was too much trouble especially when catering for a 96 year old. The rooms whilst your standard hotel room (slightly larger) were clean and well...

Modern, convenient location. Stayed for the dinner. The food was OK. Rooms were large and light. No coffee maker which is now an expectation of most 4-5 star hotels. Not really much more to say. Not really much more to say.

Stayed at the Novotel in Newcastle for a work function, but was surprised at how convenient it was to everything - close to the beach, there is a nice board-walk around the beach / harbour, great markets on saturday morning, the shops in the main street were quite good. Our room was clean and roomy, breakfast OK - the buffet...

The hotel is in a sort of a residential part town, lots of apartment complexes around the hotel. However there is beaches within 5 min walk distance and the Nobby's Lighthouse beach is a 5 min drive away. There is parking in the basement under the hotel (for an extra fee). The room itself is spacious with a large comfortable...

Walk up the hill and you are looking at the beach about 100 m away. On the edge of the city centre this hotel is clean, quiet and modern. The rooms are sparsely furnished with bare walls and only 1 chair, another would be an improvement and would avoid having to sit on the bed with two people in the...

The Novotel provided a great base for our weekend in the Hunter Valley and Newcastle. The location is brilliant - a stroll to the beach for a quick swim was a bonus and there are plenty of coffee shops nearby. Breakfast was a little bit crowded but it was a Sunday so I would expect that. We sat outside, which...

Newcastle is a hidden gem for travellers on the NSW coastline. The Novotel is located almost on the beach with easy access to beach, shops and restaurants. The service by Aaron, James and the rest of the staff was extremely helpful. Our room was perfect and we could have stayed all day in the breakfast area. Free newspapers, beach towels...

I stay at the Novotel regularly for work and am always happy with the standard and presentation of the rooms. It's a basic, clean hotel with good facilities and a 50m walk from Newcastle beach. The most modern and up to date hotel in Newcastle. Breakfast is pretty basic but there are a lot of great alternatives less than a...

We were on a driving holiday with no plans and arrived at the hotel early evening with no prior booking. We received a warm welcome from Front Desk staff, who were very helpful on booking a room and offered a rate I was happy with. The room was very clean (as were all areas of the hotel) and the bed...
