Hubby and I stay here each time we visit family in Newcastle, normally no issues but this time there were a few. Being disabled I let them know I needed a room close to amenities such as the dining room etc. we arrived and were astounded to be given the key to a room down two flights of stairs? I... More

A thumbs up to the Apollo. Large, re-decorated rooms in the family suite are clean, well equipped and most importantly quiet. For the two nights we stayed we slept well both nights in comfortable beds with no disturbing external noise at all. The service is professional and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Well done

I had a very enjoyable stay at the Apollo. We were greeted by a friendly and efficient lady at the desk. The room was spacious and clean. The rooms looked out on a beautiful bush setting which made it a relaxing view, causing you to forget you were in a busy city. The breakfast the following morning was generous and... More

I can only send a positive message to everyone. We enjoyed our time at the Apollo. The staff were always smiling. Nothing was a hassle to them. The rooms have been re decorated . Lovely and fresh . The Apollo is central if you need to travel into Newcastle or out to Lake Macquarie. Great spot

Our recent stay at the Apollo was quite enjoyable. The rooms are spacious, clean & modern, with a nice bush outlook off our balcony. It is a very convenient location to Charlestown, with plenty of off road parking and despite being on the highway, there was no road noise. The pool in summer would be quite welcoming & there is...

Comfortable accommodation with good location. It was very close to Charlestown square mall and very convenient. One criticism if I have make is that we weren't allowed to get loyalty points and frequent flyer points because we booked through Expedia. Otherwise overall it was good choice.

Booked through wotif - last minute mystery booking - what a great surprise. Very comfortable, large rooms, staff were lovely - thanks :) Would book this room again. Would be nice to come in warmer weather and make the most of the lovely pool.

Welcoming was nice and friendly, they couldn't do enough for you. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Booked in earlier than expected so they went and checked if one of the rooms were available and it was so no problems, we had all rooms straight away. Was there on business so will definatley stay again. Jane from Sydney/Gong
