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

We stayed at the Sunnyside Tavern in Newcastle for " Star Struck 2014" weekend. We were given exceptional service from the staff from the time we arrived and during the stay.The double room was modern , clean and extremely comfortable. Very limited noise. Entering and leaving the pub was easy and without fuss. An easy 10 minute straight walk will... More

Today we celebrated dad's 90th Birthday at our favourite local pub. We had 22 family members (including 2 wheelchairs and 2 highchairs) and all enjoyed the food and relaxed environment. The staff were extremely accommodating and made the day a fantastic celebration for all the family. Thankyou!

Travelling to Lithgow from Brisbane and stayed at this lovely hotel. What a lovely surprise! Lovely staff and the rooms were extremely clean and neat. It also had easy parking. We arrived quite late in the afternoon but was greeted with lovely service. Although it was a non-planned stop the staff were very accommodating and quickly showed us to our... More

Stayed here recently over a Saturday and Sunday night. Checked in at the bar about 2pm on the Saturday and shown to rooms by very accomodating staff. Had adjoining rooms which, although quite small, were spotless - as was the little ensuite. This is a very popular pub and on Saturday night the place was packed with diners / drinkers... More

Travelling down from Brisbane to Sydney, we decided to stay a night at the Sunnyside Tavern. In fairness, this is a great little place. 12 newly decorated bedrooms above a friendly bar and restaurant. We arrived at about 3pm, parked up (there is a large on site carpark or just park on the main road as we did - no... More

Stayed here for a night recently after attending a work-related function downstairs. Excellent service upon check-in and impressed that the staff member showed me to the room and explained security procedures and room features at the same time. Good sized room (recently renovated with air con that worked well) which was very, very clean and the queen bed was extremely... More

Quite new, very clean rooms with nice decor. Whilst this is an old fashioned pub, the whole top floor has been completely renovated. The food in the restaurant is top notch and the staff are really friendly and very good. There was a guitarist in the main bar one night and whilst she didn't keep me awake, friends in another...

This tavern's rooms were surprisingly clean, spacious and well kept. The location was ok for us, but not near the City Centre. It is ok for the immediate Broadmeadow area. A community kitchen for all rooms can be a shambles in the morning with a lot of tennants organising there own brekky. The hotel is good, but overpriced.

Although the room was clean tidy and bed comfy. When packing in the morning we discovered a cockroach which is gross for u but we had a toddler too which makes it worse. If you are a big person you would struggle in the bathroom. We had dinner at the restaurant menu looked delish but unfortunately failed greatly.
