We stayed here as we had a wedding to attend at a nearby hotel. Lily at reception is a gem and was very helpful throughout the whole process. The food was great and the drinks were reasonably priced. The bar staff were friendly also. The hotel is a little dated but reasonably clean and the room was a good size. I am a cleaner so I am probably a bit more fussy than some but I did find the bathroom needed more attention. The shower screens hadn’t been cleaned properly and some of the wall tiles needed going over and the tiles around the basin area could do with a good wipe over also. There is no parking on site and the parking station is about a 7 min walk but you can get your parking ticket validated at the hotel so it was $20 overnight. Would recommend for those on a budget and wanting to be in the central area of Newcastle without stretching the budget. We would definitely stay there again.…
My husband I stayed at The Clarendon and were so pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious and very clean. Nice big shower plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Bed was super comfy, the room was surprisingly quiet for such a central location. Staff were super friendly and extremely helpful when we were looking for suggestions on a restaurant for dinner. Due to the weather we were not able to do as much as I had planned so we will be heading back to Newcastle again and both agree would stay at The Clarendon again.
Had a great experience staying at this hotel. Staff were super lovely and helpful. Rooms were nice and comfortable. Our water pressure could have been better and the hot water took a while to heat in our room but my friends staying on the opposite side had great water pressure and temperature. Nice bar and restaurant below. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks to Lily for all the help and for being so friendly.
We stayed at the Clarendon as we were going to an event at the Civic Theatre, which is right next door. It is a lovely wee hotel and the room was very spacious and comfortable. The wine list by the glass was excellent and the beer garden a lovely place to sit out and relax with a drink. It was also great value.
Went to have dinner in the city and decided to stay so we could enjoy our night and have breakfast the next day. Its location is very convenient to local restaurants/ waterfronts and the well-priced parking on Argyle street. The staff were very helpful and nice, the room was spacious and the bathroom was very clean. our room had a balcony that went over the bars mezzanine and while the soundproof glass did cut down a lot of the noise from the outside bar it was still too loud to go to sleep ( and i like listening to music to sleep) - it is a bar so just be aware of this on weekends. The mattress in the room we were in was sunken and very uncomfortable but this could be just that room due for an update.
