Staff were Very helpful, especially at late notice when we needed an extra room for my Brides parents who needed a bit earlier check-in. The room and amenities were very clean and neat, and we were close to the Merewether surf club and places around the Junction. Next morning we were served a hot breakfast we ordered from the menus which was fabulous. Great place to stay for an event in and around Merewether with very helpful staff.

We had a ten day stay (over Christmas) in a First floor standard room. The motel is well maintained with regular linen service during the stay. The check in was friendly and efficient. At the time of our stay, a Room Service, complimentary Continental breakfast was included. Good Covid-19 processes were in place and mostly adhered to by staff. All rooms are non smoking. We had a Standard room with a Pillow Top queen bed. The small bathroom is narrow rendering it unusable for wheelchair access. There is a small 'water saving' hand basin built into the top of the Cistern which run when the toilet is flushed. Unfortunately there is no where to put a soap. The normal sized hand basin is in the main room adjacent to the bed. A fridge, kettle, iron and ironing board were supplied. The room was clean, tidy and fresh with good quality towels and toiletries supplied & serviced daily. A kettle along with Milk, Tea, Coffee and Biscuits were supplied. We requested, a microwave, Wine glasses, Breakfast bowls and cutlery at time of booking, all were in the room on arrival. The room has good air-conditioning. If you leave the balcony door open at night for fresh air flow, you need to contend with the occasional noise of late night deliveries at the 24hr Service Station next door. We had a comfortable stay and will definitely return when next in Newcastle. The room phone to reception was not working.

Stayed only one night. Communication from the motel was excellent. Comfortable rooms and facilities. Location was superb, close to everything in Newcastle. I would certainly stay there again if I needed accommodation in Newcastle. Great value for money.
