The perfect spot on the beach”

Great views, comfortable room and fantastic service

Noah's was a great place to stay in Newcastle. The room was very comfortable, had a good minibar, lovely MOR bathroom amenities and a double and single bed, which worked well for us as it was myself, my partner and his sister staying for the night. The customer service provided at Noah's is fantastic, as is the restaurant/bar area that has floor to ceiling windows that overlook the beach. We had an oceanview room, which also has floor to ceiling windows/sliding door, which at the moment can not be opened fully due to the reconstruction/refurbishment of the balconies. It can however be opened slightly to allow for a sea breeze. The bedding was comfortable and check-in/check-out was easy and quick.

Ideal location ”

Located right across from the beach/ ocean baths, Noah’s is ideally placed for a quick dash across to the beach and easy to get to locations 1 hour or so out of east Newcastle. Housekeeping was exemplary and the buffet breakfast a treat for one day. Note there are no cooking facilities in room (at least not ours) and not a lot of room in the bar fridge for own drinks/snacks. The 2 cafes close by (liquid gold & Estebar) are really $$$ - take the time to find other eateries in the vicinity or surrounding suburbs such as Hamilton. A car is essential- Nelson Bay & close beaches are a must-see. Noah’s is highly recommended.

Hotel directly at Newcastle beach”

As a frequent visitor to Newcastle we stay always at Noah's. Even it is not a brand new hotel and the rooms have seen the very best times, it is the best located hotel in the city. The beach is just across the road. In walking distance are very good restaurants and pubs. Tip - pay the extra dollar for a sea-view room, it's worth the money.

Loved the views from our room, one morning we watched humpback whales playing around out the back of the surf. Newcastle beach has a very good surf break. Another simple but nice feature was the shower window that allows you to look outside, in private, great feeling watching the waves while looking at waves as you shower.!!!

Unremarkable hotel with great views”

The hotel itself is nothing special except for the fact that it's right across the road from the beach, giving it excellent views from the restaurant and some rooms. I had a harbour view room with a king bed. Fortunately I wasn't sharing the room with anyone because it had a very peculiar design feature; a clear glass window between the bed area and the bathroom. I wouldn't feel comfortable sitting on the toilet in full view of my partner. There wasn't even a blind for privacy! I had friends staying in the hotel at the same time and I checked out their rooms. They had twin rooms with an ocean view. Their rooms didn't have the strange window looking into the bathroom but instead had the ugliest artwork I've ever seen on a hotel room wall. They did have stunning views of the beach and ocean though. Other than that, the room was exactly the same as mine. The rooms were small for the price but they were spotlessly clean.

Fantastic proximity to great surf beach”

1: Across a quiet road from the beach; 2: In a quiet locality with a casual feel; 3: Clean and comfortable with pleasant staff

All up, a surprisingly good experience. This was my first visit to Newcastle and I did not know what to expect of the hotel or the beach. I was thrilled to see the setup; a very comfortable hotel across the road from a beautiful surf beach, but still close to the railway station and an assortment of restaurants. Given I was in town for a business trip, my stay was far better than I expected.

Quality and comfort framed by a stunning view”

View, service, quality.

We had stayed in a four star hotel in Sydney at the beginning of the week so we were expecting something similar in quality and service but were blown away by Noahs being noticeably better. From the check in experience to the incredible breakfast before we checked out, it was difficult to fault anything about this hotel. The decor of quality/antique was a refreshing change from the minimalist modern of a lot of hotels these days. The carpeted dining room made for a quiet enjoyable lunch with great service, food and that ever present stunning view. In the room there were extras like free scottish shortbread with our coffee, a fridge with a freezer for my mum's cool bricks to keep insulin - this is nearly always missing in other hotels. The beds were comfy with a choice of pillows and that wonderful view is something to be savoured. The bathroom is very generous but perhaps in need of a larger vanity area. This could be alleviated by placement of a cupboard in the vast spare space. A full bath is also a welcome change but the position of the shower is not ideal for elderly guests. We ordered room service and were pleasantly surprised by the generous serves and gourmet quality. The minibar inclusions were more than adequate with much better prices than Sydney. I didn't hesitate to have wine with my dinner where the cost was prohibitive in Sydney. The breakfast was far in excess of expected quantities and was the top quality we had come to expect from this hotel, including linen napkins. Also, our room came with free wifi - a definite bonus. Overall we loved this hotel and would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends.

Recommend Staying at Noah's on the Beach”

The Hotel is located in a good area and very close to the beach. At the time of our stay the hotel appears to be undergoing a much needed refit. The room we stayed in was comfortable and clean, however the carpet was fitted over uneven floor, this made it uncomfortable to walk on. Staff were friendly, however dining room staff appeared to be a little flustered and didn't know what was going on, we were seated by staff at an apparently reserved table that wasn't marked as reserve. A staff member then asked us to move while we were still eating. The guest that reserved the table was kind and asked the staff member to allow us to remain at that table and simply find another table to accommodate his party. The guest saw that the error was with staff and not with us and did not want the fuss, thank you to that guest. A simple mistake by staff that could have been avoided. Other than that minor issue I would recommend the hotel.
