Cons were, we didnt have the best of sleep bcoz the bed and pillows were super soft. But each to there own, based on price and location, food and staff, we would book here again.

        Quality accommodation at a great price ”

        My family stayed here, we found the rooms to be just what we needed, we ate a meal down stairs on arrival before putting the kids to bed. It wasn’t a busy night at the hotel so there wasn’t too much noise. The only concerns was the parking which isn’t secure, and the kitchenette hadn’t been restocked so we couldn’t make use of the complimentary coffee pods as no milk. We would stay again.

        A bigger carpark would be great or carpark just for the hotel guests. Pub is old but clean and staff are friendly. Room was small and tidy bed was a double not a queen. No fridge or kettle in the room basically a bed and tv. Good for the price and would probably stay again if I needed to be in the area.

        The room is small but with toliet inside. The hotel is close to the bus stop but far from the train station, where 15-20min walkinh distance. It is little bit noise in the night time as there is bar next the hotel and downstairs as well. However, overall is acceptable to stay.

        location, cleanliness, friendly staff

        From the outside, The Sunnyside Tavern didn't give us much hope. It looked like a typical pub and we were expecting pub standards, but boy were we wrong! The inside was modern with a fresh feel and the staff were super friendly. We were given a tour, 2 free drink vouchers and then shown to our room. The room was small, but exceedingly comfortable with free wifi and complimentary shower products. We had a really lovely night in the restaurant catching up with friends over fantastic food and a great atmosphere. I recommend this hotel for the budget conscious traveller looking for a comfortable all-in-one. Close to the city too, bonus :) I have to mention that the staff exceeded my expectations completely when they express posted my forgotten teddy bear. Looking forward to our next trip :)

        We were an overnight stay for a concert and the Sunnyside met our needs..Clean, quiet and courtesy bus chauffered to the Entertainment Centre.

        Our stay at the Sunnyside met our overnight needs, the room although small had ensuite, was very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. We were offered the services of the Sunnyside Tavern shuttle bus, which dropped us off and picked us up from the Entertainment Centre. The only downside was that we were unable to dine for breakfast, however there are many cafes very close to enjoy a cooked breakfast.

        Rennovated Tavern: Excellent customer service!”

        Staff was so responsive to our needs, especially late check-in and transport; cleanliness of shared common spaces; excellent communication

        Despite our very late arrival to Newcastle, we were welcomed by one of the tavern staff for check-in and given warm words for my son who is starting a university life in Newcastle. The tavern has a restaurant which offers very nice continental menu to satisfy your appetite, wifi-access and clean facilities for common shared purposes. We were also given useful advice for directions and service points.

        Great little pub hotel ”

        Lovely staff, great atmosphere, good hearty meals

        This was a great find in Newcastle for an overnight stay after driving up from Sydney. I happened to get there fairly late in the evening. The lovely restaurant staff were already closing up but they went out of their way to make a meal for a hungry and weary traveller. The rooms had been renovated and was tidy. The toilet didn't quite work as well as expected but it wasn't a big drama. The Sunnyside Tavern is worth staying at if you're in the neighbourhood of Hamilton.

        the people make the place great!”

        Clean, modern rooms in an old shell of a building

        The best part of this tavern and accomodation is the owner and staff of the place. They went out of their way to make a solo traveller fel at home. They even arranged tickets to sporting events when I expressed an interest in seeing the local soccer team. The facility has a great tavern, a nice resteraunt, and the rooms are very modern and newly remodeled. The shower in particular is amazing: strong pressure and lots of hot water.

        great rooms, nice staff, great food, great value”

        Really light and totally new rooms, lovely staff and fantastic food, great value

        The location is maybe a bit odd, since it is not close to the beach or downtown, but if you have a car, that shouldn't be a problem, because the great value for the money you get will make up for it. We even extended our stay by one night, because we really felt comfortable there. The young staff is absolutly lovely and helpful and always in a good mood. The restaurant of the place serves nice food and there is even a terrass. The room have high ceilings, a lot of daylight, are really clean and all brand new including the bathroom. We actually really liked Newcastle. It is worth to explore the city, beaches and cost line and the staff is willed to give yout some insider tips.

        The cleanliness of the room, the staff were very helpful, great value

        My boyfriend and I had a great one night stay at sunny side Tavern. Our room was upgraded upon arrival and the food at the restaurant was great. The location was perfect, close to public transport and a short drive from the local shops. Would definitely stay there again.

        Sunnyside Tavern great for access too university, above the pub and restaurant”

        For us the location was great - a short drive to the uni, not far from airport, shopping centre around the corner. Room was basic and small but clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Independent access so you didn't have to go near pub if you dont want to. Restaurant was top class. My daughter had family room. It was great. She had a fridge which we didn't. We didn't have a kettle either. There was a communal mini kitchen but I wouldn't have put my food in there. Overall for a couple of days fantastic. But not if you want to be in Newcastle city
