8/10 Very good

Wish I'd spent longer there.
Unfortunately, we only utilised the hotel for a one night stop-over travelling from Brisbane to Sydney. So; I cannot comment on the location and area, however the staff are friendly and professional, the hotel is clean and comfortable with excellent views from the rooms. Definitely a hotel to consider the next time we travel between Brisbane and Sydney.

Pleasantly surprised
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel for the price. Staff were great and the facilities were good. We ate dinner in the restaurant and food was good. Breakfast was good if you just stick to continental. The cooked breakfast not so good.

I would recommend
The hotel is ideally located for what I was in the Newcastle area for. Walkable distance to shopping and food. Large area for parking and staff more than attentive and helpful. The room he had this time was spacious and clean.

8/10 Very good

All the staff we encountered were really lovely. The room was clean and spacious, and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast and dinner at the convenient on-site restaurant, Babbington’s. The only negative was the dirty glasses and empty champagne glasses left outside our door when we arrived. It was obviously left by the previous guests and missed during room service, which didn’t create the greatest first impression.

A good stay
The hotel is clean and the staff were friendly and attentive. My room was well maintained and comfortable but basic, which was fine as it has everything I required. I will stay here again
