Excellent location! The staff that greeted me on arrival were wonderful. The person that did my check out was clearly not focussed on customer service. The most disappointing aspect was the cockroaches located in the kitchen cupboard and under the sink.

Great location, friendly staff - $19 a night parking. pretty good. Be sure to book dinner on honeysuckle drive as it was so busy we couldn't get a table for 6 on Saturday night anywhere! Rooms were nice and clean, can complain.

Dear Michael, Thank you for your review. We do have a great location situated on the honeysuckle foreshore but I agree that reservations for dinner are a necessity as the restaurants and bars can be quite busy on a Saturday night especially now we are heading in to the festive season, reception staff would be more than happy to assist...

The location of this property is excellent with many restaurants/bars/cafes to choose from. Our room 1 brm appt was spacious however there is very limited shelf space in the bathroom. Bed was comfortable, service was good. We would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I have stayed at the Chifley twice now, and on both occasions we have found the staff to be polite and helpful. On our last stay with stayed in the Penthouse Apartment, but it needed a good dust. Nevertheless, it was comfortable, and apart from the dust clean.

We stayed the weekend and they had a weekend special inclusive of breakfast. Our room on the 3rd floor was sunny and looked out to a courtyard with lush plants and very quiet.

You could not ask for a better location for a w/e in Newcastle. There are plenty of options for dinner or drinks within walking distance, or you can hire a bike and head to the beach or into town. Rooms were tidy enough, could perhaps be cleaned a bit better, but overall our stay was very enjoyable.

We enjoyed a lovely night here in a very spacious apartment. The apartment was clean and well appointed. The staff at reception were friendly and the price very competitive. The apartments are located close to a few nightclubs so the only negative we found was that the street was a little bit noisy outside late in the evening. If you... More

Good clean hotel in great area near to good restaurants. Great views of water from some rooms. Trains can be noisy at night, but that is infrequent. Secure parking is avail as parking outside is timed and difficult to find in business hours.
