Went here for my Birthday, the day was so hot that I think the air conditioning was struggling, and it didn't help that the large skylight in restaurant lets the heat in. I haven't been here for a long time, the restaurant needs a good decluttering/clean or total revamp. The decor seemed very old although the theme did suit the... More

We ordered mussels and chips and a salad to share which was all excellent. Little Creatures 'Rogers' on tap is always a plus.too. Only error was that the mussels come with chips, so we had a double serve which was too much for us. Note: The menu doesn't mention that the mussels come with chips

We enjoyed a memorable celebration for our son's 21st at this venue. Sara, the functions coordinator, was especially helpful, being very willing and cheerful in responding to all my requests as were the two young ladies serving us on the night. I loved the venue – the set up, décor, the balcony and the view of the beach. The canapes... More

Had not visited since renovations were completed (which incidentally will be paid for by subtle price increases), and we were pleasantly surprised at the result. The dining area is now bright and breezy and pleasant to be in. The food was good and the service excellent. I suppose when you're on a good thing, stick to it and I refer... More

We went here after a long day in the office. Wine is nice and resonable, view is nice and the premises are clean. Food prices are normal and service was quick. If you are after a pub meal with a view I would recommend. Plenty of parking out the front of the pub as well.

Took visitors to have lunch. Good to see the hotel has been revamped with new menu. Food was varied and good quality. Service prompt and friendly. Prices were good for the quality. To finish the day the view was to die for. A great experience for visitors to Newcastle

We had the pleasure of holding our 50th Wedding Anniversary Party in the Aqua Function Room Level 2 last. What a fantastic night. The venue room was excellent, with its views and balcony adding to the atmosphere. We have received many favourable compliments from our guests, some their first time at the Beaches. Sarah the function manager was exceptional from... More

If you like the beach and ocean, don't miss a visit to the Beach Hotel at Merewether. The hotel is a great facility for a drink or lunch and is very popular with many Novocastrians. Sitting to on the balcony gives you an excellent view of the ocean and during the whale migration season you can sit back with a... More
