Stayed for two nights. Requested a quiet room and they did not disappoint. The front desk staff were terrific and Josh the concierge was really very helpful. Must admit it was perplexing as to why the televisions are so crappy. Dreadful grainy pictures and if I wanted to use my i Pad on the tv I had to contact reception... More

The room was clean, comfy and with a nice wharf view. Valet parking was excellent. There is a public car park in about 400m away from the hotel, so there's a freedom of choice. Great sunrise and sunset view of the wharf. Good for a morning jog or stroll along the wharf. There's plenty of restaurant/bars along the wharf. Its... More

My partner and I stayed here for a night last weekend. I've always wanted to stay in the heart of Newcastle and explore the surrounds, even though I have a holiday house 20 minutes away. Check in was fast and easy. We chose valet parking, as free street parking is something Newcastle does not provide. The rate was $29 per... More

I am a frequent guest at this establishment. I love the fantastic harbour view. This is a working harbour and watching the tugs bringing in big container ships is wonderful. Rooms are well set out, full of light and come in several sizes. I recommend you pay the extra for a harbour view. Staff are friendly and courteous and service... More

On business staying two nights and the rooms are actually well set out with the Tv and lounge separate to the bedroom which has a tv and the look out over the harbour is a quite a nice view and nice to look at when you wake up in the morning.

Stayed at this hotel with a friend mid-week. Loved the ambience, decor and the abundance of light in the common areas. Our room was on the first floor.

Stayed one night in superior suite. Would have expected larger room, definitely not for family. Suitable for a couple or business travel. Overall appearance and style of the hotel is nice and sophisticated.
