Booked this as it was the cheapest room I could find in Newcastle and it was just a way of breaking up a long drive so I wasn’t expecting much. It was actually a surprise to see how nice the room was, we have stayed in other rooms that charge double the price and over all, I much preferred this over them. USB chargers in all powerpoints. Chromecast on the tv. Comfy king bed. Breaky included. Plenty of parking. Big shower. Close to public transport. This is our new go-to in Newcastle.

I arrived at the hotel a little early and was very well taken care of by the lady at reception. I had several issues that I needed resolved and she assisted with all of them. Room was great and breakfast was satisfactory.

We, a family of 4 stayed for 2 weekends and found the hotel and staff to be superb. Lots of parking [$20 per night], quick check in and comfortable well equipped rooms. Happy hour on an evening, good free wifi and adequate breakfast. Would certainly stay again as the staff were extremely helpful, welcoming and testament to the IHG brand - well done!

Had a overnight stay in Newcastle to catch up with friends. The hotel was very clean and modern. Front reception Staff were extremely friendly, a special call out to Linda who was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and quiet, beds were very comfortable. Would have preferred more restaurants nearby or even at the property to make the location more convenient. However everything was in driving distance. Breakfast that was on offer was simple, considering it was included in the room rate. Scrambled eggs, baked beans and bacon. Variety of breads and cereals with complimentary tea, coffee and juice. Would recommend for a quick stop off on Newcastle.
