Easy parking , close to the stunning beach and it has a beach pool if your not happy in the surf. Breakfast was perfect we ordered poached eggs , and hollandaise sauce,fast and no trouble. Bed was comfortable and the room was well sized, we had a double and two singles plus a rollaway and there was still space.

This hotel is set back from the beach surrounded by other apartments and cafes Comfortable not much of a view We booked harbour views had to be moved to get a long distance harbour view. Staff friendly , We were looking for a hotel with beach views.

A well located hotel, reasonably priced for Newcastle. Harbour view rooms offer glimpses of the harbour but quire good views of Nobbys. Parking is available for a fee and is in high demand. Typical of the chain in Australia.

We stayed here for a mini-break from Sydney and as regular Accor customers would have to say this relatively newly built Novotel is right up there with the best! In a wonderful location and just a few minutes stroll to the ocean beach it also benefits from the cooling sea breeze on the hot day we were there. The hotel... More

The is a very funky style hotel situated at the top of town right near the beach. Rooms are small but very modern and with nice decor. There are a number of unusual restaurants close by for both dinner and breakfast. Again as I have come to expect, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Great for a weekend getaway.

A comfortable hotel that is clean and tidy but lacks that edge of character. Nothing jumps out at you and begs for you to want to return. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are basic but almost clinical, there is definitely room for improvement.
