    I was very impressed by your staff as they were very polite and professional. The size of my room and the cleanliness was was very impressive , I was also impressed with the amount of coffee and different selections of tea as I don’t drink alcohol and drink lots of tea and coffee. my bed was very comfortable as some motels/hotels have very soft and uncomfortable mattress’s but I had a great night sleep , Thank You, So next time I’m looking for a place to stay in the Newcastle area I know where I will be staying as without a doubt the best place I have ever stayed .

    We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Plus Apollo. It was clean and presentable the staff were very helpful. It is not centrally located so you will require a car to enjoy all Newcastle and the region has to offer. Dinner in the restaurant was ok. One small thing they never replaced the small tube of shower gel...we were there 3 nights.

    Relaxing getaway with great food”

    My partner and I snuck away for a night in the Honeymoon suite. The spa bath and huge bed were very relaxing, we enjoyed a cheese plate on the balcony overlooking the bushland listening to the native birds sing. The hotel is on the highway but you would not know it when sitting facing the bush outlook. 100% recommend having dinner in the hotel restaurant Babbingtons. It is some of the best food we have eaten and the service from the staff there was fantastic. Recommend the cocktails also.
