Great stay for 3 nights, only problem was only had portable air conditioning units (bit noisy, didn't cool all the rooms down) but they gave us a discount. overall great stay and would recommend, the location was excellent.
We stayed two nights in a two bedroom apartment which was spacious, modern and clean, it had a huge balcony with great views of the waterfront. The Chifley is in a fantastic, central location close to bars, restaurants and cafe's. We will definitely stay again next time we're in Newcastle :)
Clean very serviceable apartment. In good location. Close to lovely restaurants A few maintenance issues identified which reception assure me will be attended to. Drinking water discoloured. parking quite expensive.
Most of our cricket team stayed at the hotel for the Newcastle City Council tournament. We had stayed at this hotel previously and love the outdoor pool where the players can unwind. Unfortunately the lack of food service made the stay somewhat inconvenient which is such a pity.
For a quality set of apartments, the rooms require an overhaul. While I understand the rooms are designed to cater to those travelling and want a home away from home, the rooms could use a decent upgrade. Bedroom is nice, bed and pillows not overly comfortable. Air con was old and noisy. Lounge, uncomfortable, nothing a few cushions couldn't fix. Electrical was not great, bumped the lamp and the light constantly flickered. Tea and coffee were catered for, but no hot chocolate for the non tea/coffee drinkers. The accommodation is fine if its at a reasonable rate, but i paid $350 for a night and I could stay at a 4 star top quality hotel in Sydney for half the cost, just not justified for country NSW be it a business stay or not.
Service was great. But the rooms are very outdated furniture was broken and old. Mattress is so hard and lounge was old and hard. For the amount we paid we expected more from the room. The location is all it really has going for it.
In our room we found both alive and dead cockroaches. We found the price of parking, $25 per nigh was way to EXPENSIVE. We found our bed and pillows very hard and uncomfortable to sleep in. Either than that the staff were lovely
Very bad customer service. They don’t care about guests. Even called head office to have hotel manager call direct and still no callback. High speed internet NOT! That’s when it actually works. Apartment not cleaned. They state cable programming well free to air isn’t cable programming. Way expensive self parking. Nightmare hotel and wouldn’t recommend. Don’t think Gordon Ramsey could save the hotel if he came in.
No hot water in one room and no air con in the other for two nights. The room was clean and the staff were helpful BUT not having hot water is ridiculous and no air con on two 30plus days and nights is not acceptable.
I found the pillows too high and decorative pillows were emitting an unpleasant smell. When other guests / owners smoked on their verandah it wafted and we retreated back inside and closed doors. Yes we know this is outside of your control.
