From the moment we walked in with a lovely warm welcoming and an early entry into our room, we knew we booked the right place. big spacious room and bathroom. Exceptionally clean and tidy. Double glazed windows to block out traffic from main street below. We chose to pay the $10 for secure underground parking instead of risking street parking...damage... More

Not sure what to expect upon arrival at this hotel due to the building works beside it. However the room was great, the staff were excellent and extremely helpful (we had a problem with our room lock), The room was quiet due to good soundproofing, well fitted out and the bed was comfortable. Good location. If ever in Newcastle again,... More

I stayed at the Clarendon for a few days and the price was very good compared to the quality of the room - clean and friendly. The only negative was the restaurant - the food was poor and it could really use a good clean - I do suggest going somewhere else to eat. It is a typical Aussie pub... More

Great Value for money. Friendly efficient service. Convenient Parking option. Large comfortable rooms. Good beer on tap Downstairs! We were very happy with our stay and will definitely stay there again when in Newcastle.

This was our first time staying at the Clarendon . We were in 201 and while there was construction going on it didn't seem to bother us. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. Would most defiantly stay here when next in Newcastle . Avoid the travelodge..

We have stayed at The Clarendon at least 5 or 6 times now and it is always our number one choice when visiting Newcastle. When it was first recommended to us we weren't too sure about the whole pub scene but this place exceeded our expectations from the beginning and has not disappointed on each of our returns. The rooms... More

The hallways and room smelt both musty and of too much cleaner, luckily there was a door onto a balcony for us to open. The bathroom is tiny and poorly set up. Everything was very outdated feeling. The lift smelt of beer. Good location close to Darby street with cafes and boutiques and river front dining areas. Felt it was... More

The room was average for the price as well as the noisy construction work next door. The room/bathroom was clean and tidy and we had chocolates on our pillow. We had the room cleaner an hour before check out knocking on our door to see if we were still there. There was no mention of the construction work when selecting... More

Really enjoyed our stay - the room was well proportioned, modern, quiet with a huge shower recess and the check in receptionist was very welcoming and attentive. The parking was a bit away from the building but we think it was as building nearby was taking place. We had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and we were just after a... More

We (couple and baby) Stayed in room 209 on the second floor of the building at the end of the corridor facing the main road. We heard very little road noise and considering there was construction happening at the back/ side of the building, we didn't hear a thing. Lovely staff were very welcoming and accommodating and were happy to... More
