I stayed here recently with my partner as it was very close to the Newcastle Entertainment Centre and was very surprised by the accommodation. It has been recently renovated and is a very nice, clean and tidy little establishment, even though a few of the rooms share the bathroom and shower facilities it was still a great place to stay...

This is a colorful place with hotel rooms, restaurant and tavern. The tavern is a local establishment and we enjoyed it. The restaurant was ok as we did not feel like driving anymore the first night there. In our room, a small but adequate place, we could easily hear the downstairs noise (all rooms upstairs).

Such an awesome place! I stayed there for about a week during the Asian Cup 2015. It close to a lot of places and it's very very clean and tidy. The guys at the bar downstairs are very friendly and awesome! Even though there is music downstairs but I didn't hear a thing from my room! Really recommend it!

We stayed in room 11, and although it was small room it was very modern with good facilities - air con, ensuite, tv etc. Staff were friendly - Zach in particular was very helpful and accommodating. Unfortunately the only downfall was a few unwanted roomies... cockroaches. We saw one come from the bathroom drain, so blocked it off with the... More

I stayed in room 11, a small, very clean double with a new en-suite. The food was good and well priced. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I stayed on Monday and Tuesday nights, which were quiet.

Clean very small room, staff was very helpful. No sleep at all you think your bed strands in the middle of of the pup downstairs. If you would like to party go for it. If you are looking for a over night stay (rest sleep) do not go there.

Dear Mika, Thank you again for bringing this issue to our attention. We are sorry that you felt unhappy with the amount of noise that you could hear from your room. Whilst we endeavour to satisfy all of our guests, the fact is that we are a busy Pub, and sometimes it can be noisy. We try and ensure that... More

Traveling with two youngsters , we needed to have an overnight stay and the accommodation at Sunnyside was just perfect and it was good to not put the kids back in the car to find dinner , the pub grub was beautiful. The complimentary beer on arrival was a nice touch!

Stayed here on Fri night as we were attending a Festival at the nearby Newcastle Jockey Club. Room was very modern, clean and bright with a separate bathroom. Small kitchen available to use for coffees etc. Staff very helpful. Nice visit.

Stayed here with a work colleague. Both our rooms were spacious, clean and tidy with all the right amenities. The pub being right beneath isn't a problem as you cant hear whats going on downstairs. As for the tavern itself, they serve good food, service is good and the place itself is nice with plenty of space. Take advantage of... More
