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

We travel a lot with work across the country, and found all staff very friendly and helpful, our twin room 3 was clean and modern, as were the shared, individual toilet/shower bathrooms. Off street car park, good security, free Wi-Fi and real coffee, all add to making this the best pub we have stayed in. We will be back....

Stayed with my adult daughter at Sunnyside Tavern for five nights while visiting my son in Calvary Mater hospital. From the time the courtesy van collected us from the station at Broadmeadow we were looked after like VIPs. Our first room was rather noisy overnight, from the refrigeration units outside the window, so we were moved to two adjoining rooms... More

I was a bit concerned sleeping in a tavern with the kids but it proved out to be much more than I expected. The room looked new clean and quiet even though on the floor below there was music. The free espresso machine was a real nice extra.

We can't fault the friendy and helpful staff, comfortable and clean room and enjoyable meal. But, after travelling to Newcastle for a series of medical appointments we needed a good nights sleep and we got absolutely none. The live "music", which began just as we were about to dose off, had everything in our room reverbarating and the windows rattling... More
