4/10 Fair

The property has a great layout and was in a fantastic location for us. Was really pleased to see it had an ensuite and a bathroom, when we only expected 1 bathroom! However it was not clean, blankets had been shoved into cupboards, floors had dirty crumbs floating around, the courtyard was unkept, the bathrooms had not had the vanity wiped prior to our stay. The people running the apartments were rude. We got charged an additional $9 for a meaningless admin fee which we had not expected. We have stayed a few times in properties run by Newcastle executive apartments and found the customer service to be very below parr each time.

2/10 Poor

Trust the reviews!!!!! We were booked to stay at Blue Gum Apartments for 2 nights. We arrived at 4:30pm to find that our apartment was still being “cleaned”. We sat with our children in the car until 5:00pm waiting for the room to be ready. On entry to the property we noticed multiple shopping trolleys and used mattresses. Whilst waiting we witnessed cleaners throwing towels and sheets over third storey balconies onto dirty wet concrete below. There was no care given whatsoever! I believe we were quite patient considering checkin was 2pm. Once finished we had to step over towels and rubbish to enter the building. The room was basic. No bedside lamps, no artworks on the walls. Filthy! Our children even decided to put their socks back on after their shower. The bedspreads were dirty, the vanity is well beyond needing replacing, the shower was mouldy and there was not even a soap holder. The balconies and windows were putrid! It was just plain disgusting. We are so disappointed, as we have stayed with Newcastle Executive Apartments on multiple occasions at their properties in Charlestown, Hamilton and Wallsend, which were all excellent locations and we couldn’t fault them. We decided to leave after one night because to be honest we was appalled and disgusted with this property. We didn’t feel safe at all. It’s been a week and I still haven’t received any communication from the manager even after sending email and text message. Appalling!!!!!!!!!

Good TV. Overall dirty and in a poor state of repair. Lacking kitchen utensils and crockery, very noisy, less than friendly neighbours.
