Staff & accommodation were great.. the fitout is new well done with comfortable decor, and, a friendly pub downstairs. Food is good pub food and the Locals?.. fun. Stayed on a business trip so didn't need street venues - it's all at the Tavern. Excellent value too. Will stay again.

Modern, well furnished rooms hide above this busy pub. Everyone was immediately welcoming (reassuring for a female travelling alone) and they even gave me a lift to the Entertainment Centre as the courtesy bus was being repaired. I had an excellent steak in the restaurant and enjoyed making myself proper coffee in the shared kitchen. For those without cars the... More

We are a removals company with very discerning staff and Its difficult booking rooms for them traveling up and down the east coast without first knowing the area. sometime you have a hit and sometimes a miss. The Sunnyside Tavern is most definitely a hit!! When they come back and tell you 'Best food ever' and 'great choice' which were... More

This is a nice place to stay. It is still quite far from downtown Newcastle and theres not so much in the surroundings (mostly businesses). But: the tavern itself serves really great food, so no need to go anywhere! The rooms are nodern and comfortable, good value for money. And being above a pub, it wasn't that noisy at all.

I stayed here recently with other members of my family and booked the two family rooms/suites. They have been renovated and are a real surprise in a hotel of this age. The rooms are really good, clean and fresh. Our rooms had ensuites but I am aware that other rooms share a bathroom. If I was to be really picky,... More

We stayed one night and had a great time. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. We were able to not only get a room upgrade upon arrival but also early check in without request. The room was new and very clean. Close to public transport and only a short drive away from the local shops. Would definitely stay there... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights mid-week by myself while my partner was in Newcastle Private Hospital for minor surgery. The rooms appear to have been recently renovated and are very fresh, but small. When booking I had a choice of twin beds or queen, which was the single beds pushed together. This is fine except there was... More
