Good but expensive”

It was $180 per night which is expensive. The room size a little small, especially for price. Staff very nice. Great location on the outskirts. Perfect if you are travelling through like we were. It is a hotel as well. Great bar with meals and live entertainment. Wasn’t noisy as the rooms are removed from the hotel a bit. Decent neighbourhood so there were no security concerns. I would recommend it, but be prepared for the price. Maybe there are decent deals. Worth checking out.

Great little find”

A wonderful surprise. Modern, spacious room, good restaurant, friendly staff. The bathroom wasn’t 100% clean but it wasn’t bad, just a bit of soap scum and some mildew in corners. Great to find a coffee machine and a large smart tv in the room having spent the previous several nights in other more expensive hotels with smaller crappier tvs and instant coffee. I’d happily stay there again.

One night Stopover”

I was arriving late in Newcastle for a 4.30pm work meeting . I checked in about 3.30pm and at first I was confused. There was not building with "Best Western" branding, just a pub on the corner. I went in and found reception and I was in the right place. I voiced my concern about staying above a pub and they said, as it was a Tuesday it would not be that noisy. I arrived back at 10.30pm found my room. Everything was spotless, clean and working. What more could you ask. So overall it was good but being above a pub is a concern for me all the same.

Terrible hotel with horrible room with cockroaches”

It was a terrible stay at this hotel. My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night over Easter holiday. The room looked newly renovated online, however it is dirty inside. We saw cockroach twice in the room which was extremely terrible. Also, the air conditioning was not functional and the room was super hot at night like a sauna room as the only window in the room was tightly sealed. Another letdown was the reception is tiny and is actually shared by a convenient store next door. The receptionist was not approachable when we would like to ask them to get the air conditioning fixed. It is actually quite far from Newcastle downtown, 15 minutes by car. Anyway, please avoid this hotel if you are expecting a clean and comfortable room and any helpful receptionists.
