We stayed one night for my husband birthday , and we loved it.
Looks that the hotel was recently renovated, room has a beautiful view to the beach , great amenities and impeccable clean.
There’s coffee machine which for the ones like me addicted to coffee is a great plus.
Breakfast better then expected, specially the fresh made pancakes

We stayed here in April, our 3rd stay at this hotel. We booked an ocean view room and the views were stunning. A balcony wrapped around two sides of the room so we were treated to awesome views of the beach and also up to the mountain behind Wollongong.
The hotel is comfortable, great beds, good bathroom and shower (no bathtub), and basic coffee/ tea facilities.
The best part is you can put on your swimmers and run across the road to the beach! Also the city centre is a short walk of less than 20 mins.

Stayed here recently with work.

I found the Novotel to be lovely. Staff were very friendly and helpful, even when my workplace mixed up the purchase order.

The used the restaurant every night. We didn't try the buffet, but the meals ordered off the menu were delicious and absolutely huge.

I would definitely stay here again.

We have recently visited Novotel North Beach during a weekend in August. We were group of 4 families with kids ages between 2 years and 12 years old.
We have enjoyed the stay alot. the hotel is clean (not very much but acceptable). the views are superber. i was on the 9th floor ocean view. the staff are very friendly and helpful. they have offered a room upgrade for one of us (free of charge) although he forgot to add his special request during booking.
the location is beyond all the measures. right on the beach with cafes and restaurants and parks within walking distance.
the buffet breakfast was very good. they also offer barista coffee with the breakfast.
the only missing thing, is an indoor heated pool. (they already have an outdoor solar heated pool).
will definitely come back again.

Room tip: choose higher levels (9th floor) for a fantastic ocean views

Poor sleep quality. It feels like sinking while sleeping as the mattress is very old and very plushie. No back support at all. We will have to get a Thai massage to fix our back.
Parking and wifi are not free. This is a rip-off.

we changed rooms twice still the same terrible mattress.
Will not be staying here again even for free. I wish we stayed at the Sage hotel.

Dear MElkhodr,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay at Novotel Northbeach.

Please accept my sincerest apologies in relation to our bedding. I do understand everyone's preferences are different to the firmness or softness of a mattress. In relation to parking our prices are $15 per day which is very reasonable for the area we are in.

We do have the offer of complimentary WiFi when signing to our free membership. I do apologise if this was not communicated to you on check in.

We do hope you can give us a second chance to redeem ourselves.

Kind Regards,

Rebecca Blackwell
