Just have an overnight at the hotel. I could not fault the hotel or the staff. They could not do enough for us. Allowed us to check in early and after a friend had a stumble they patched him up. Great service by the night manager and his staff. Thanks

Always enjoy staying here. Love the location near the water and always busy. Rooms are comfortable and lots of space to spread out. Amenities are ok. Prices are high compared to other locations in Newcastle but convenient as an IHG member.

Quite expensive, and for that you get nothing special - we were in a 'city view' room.. The room was adequate, the bathroom ok in size but the water pressure was not good and the tiny bath made the shower experience poor. There were only sport channels on the pay TV and as mentioned the view was - well, non existent. The drinks at the bar very very very expensive. For this price we would stay at the Quest next time.

We went for our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised at how much more we enjoyed the weekend because we stayed here. The hotel is right on the river and the view from the window was constantly changing as cargo ships came, loaded and left. The river itself is beautiful as is the boardwalk along it. The service in the hotel was excellent, our room was great and clean. A memorable weekend.

Lovely Newcastle. I have been living in Sydney all my life and have only realised I haven't been to Newcastle so this Australia Day I took myself off for three days in the wonderful city. The foreshore is a great walk around the harbour up to Fort Scratchley and over to Nobbys Beach. The baths at Nobbys Beach are great as is the beaches further south like Bar Beach. There is a fabulous sky walk from Shepherds Hill all the way to Bar Beach which is a must do. There are plenty of great places to eat as well and coffee like the bigger cities.

Stayed last Sunday night in King Suite overlooking the water. There are some great food and bars close by if you want to get out. Room is well appointed, although a few upgrades could help out (TV to digital for instance) but bed was extra comfy and ability to draw black out curtains for a sleep in was handy. Check in staff were great and helped with the Japanese restaurant recommendation nearby - try it out for sure! Also go for a late check out and then its easy to go for a walk along the wharf up to the beach.

We visited for a short family stay.. the rooms didn't have a balcony.. and the lift was dated.. not much to do with was okay. It would have loved to have a balcony and if the pool was warmer. The breakfast was good. It's a decent hotel but for the price you would expect more.

Great staff / Great facilities / Great atmosphere --- worth it! Try their FULL breakfast - it's fantastic! We had a couple of trouble makers playing knock and run one afternoon. We mentioned it to the staff who went out of their way to track them down and deal with the situation. We were impressed with their professionalism and follow up too and we're thankful for the effort. In all, we'll certainly be back!

Right from check in the staff were welcoming and friendly and helpful. Our car was parked via the valet, or on street was available. We were upgraded without asking to a harbour view room. The staff acted quickly and efficiently to deal with some feral unsupervised kids who thought it was a great game to play knock and Run on our room all afternoon. Each duty manager and front desk staff were so apologetic for the kids behaviour. Room service and house keeping was great. The restaurant was also Lovely. Food was amazing. Breakfast was so good and filling we didn't need lunch. Great location for relaxation. But not really that close to anything else.

Great place for a holiday, staff were great, Restaurant top class and room view overlooking the Harbour top class. Prices over New Year very reasonable. Great Restaurants in walking distance and good pubs, a lot of good beaches in the area, ideal place for children We will be back
