Handy to Beaumont St, Gregson Park and to public transport, this small oasis is a real gem. The entrance is through the shared living/breakfast area which has limited kitchenette facilities, to the stairs up to the rooms. There is one guest room off this communal area which, according to the guest that I spoke with, is unlikely to be disturbed... More

Overall I would thoroughly recommend Chaucer Palms for couples weekending away or business travellers in Newcastle more than one night wanting a more homely feel. The room was beautifully fitted out and also the bathroom - every feature had been well thought through. We stayed here before hot air ballooning in the Hunter Valley. Location was good. We had booked... More

We will be back! Lovely hotel very clean and welcoming. Great place to relax for our parent weekend away. The owners were wonderful and made breakfast each morning. The price was great which is what we loved and also close to the main street! Definitely a 4 star hotel!

Stayed here twice now on a saturday night when visiting friends in the area. Excellent space, comfortable bed and a really great bathtub. Location is very convenient and the little touches like the complimentary pre dinner cheese with a drink, and the handmade biscuits make it a really lovely place to stay.

Superb design with both elegance and function in mind. We could not fault the facilities or the welcome. We walked to central Newcastle and the Beaumont Street cafe precinct. The breakfast was superb and the bed comfortable. What more could you ask from a B&B. Oh yes, value for money? Absolutely. Can't wait to return.

We recently stayed midweek for two nights at this B&B. The room was spotless and the bathroom modern with a very generous 2 person spa bath. The neighbourhood was quiet and close to Beaumont Street which has numerous restaurants and pubs. There was a sitting/breakfast room with tea and coffee making facilities. The only criticism that I would make is... More

My mum and I stayed overnight at Chaucer Palms and were very happy with our stay. Breakfast was delicious - particularly the yoghurt parfait - and the coffee was fresh and wonderful. Bed was very spacious and comfortable and Julie and Peter were kind and accommodating. Definitely recommend!

Really enjoyed our stay which came about because we cancelled a booking at another location. So a quick call and we were able to get something at short notice. Early check-in was appreciated. Room was very spacious and well appointed. Bed was very spacious (ok, it was a king sized bed) and very comfortable. Breakfast was the best ever (yes,... More

Recently stayed at Chaucer for an overnight stay in Newcastle. Hosts were extremely accommodating with anything we needed. The room was modern, facilities were excellent & the bed was extremely comfortable. Great location, central to the hub of Beaumont Street. Would highly recommend.

On arrival we were made to feel very welcome after a lengthy drive, lovely beer for my fiance and wine for myself with complimentary cheese and crackers. Loved the mod cons, our room was cosy and impeccably clean. Quiet and in a convenient location. As we are required to travel here every 6 months for appointments at John Hunter, we... More
