Another pleasant stay at the Apollo. Checkin/out was pleasant however was informed on arrival I'd been changed to a twin room as opposed to King (just myself and daughter travelling). The room was ok. The biggest issue is that there the door to the balcony didn't fit correctly so neither of us got any sleep due to severe storms and... More

Loved my stay at the Hotel, the restaurant was AMAZING!! The only disappointment was the photos on Wotif are the honeymoon suite and clearly not the room you get for the price. I feel its false advertisement but did think our room was extremely good for the amount paid. Staff were lovely and super helpful

Room was great nice and clean but dusting could have been better....food lovely but overpriced....staff helpful and knowledgeable... Not convenient to where I had to go...but will consider staying again....locked out of side doors after dark so had to go to front entrance if needed to go to car....swipe access should be on all doors

A very good property on the outskirts of Newcastle, rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. You wont be disappointed. As a business traveller the location is only five minutes from the city and walking distance to other amenities in Charlestown.

The hotel was excellent, rooms clean modern furnishings, staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms warm in winter with comfortable beds, well equipped gym, beautiful views of the forest. Short distance from Newcastle by car and close to the Charlesville shopping centre. Would recommend for business or pleasure.

Did not expect such a nice hotel, we stayed there as to be close to Lake Macquarie Private Hospital . From the minute we met Mark at reception , the visit was great . Rooms clean, warm and cosy . Not having to ask for a wifi code was good, most hotels you have to beg for the code. Local... More

I have been staying at this hotel yearly for 3 weeks stints and each visit the management and front desk remember me. Your thinking its just a neat sales gimmick and I would usually agree except when they mention key issues that where discussed in passing from previous years. The rooms are kept immaculate by a friendly housekeeping team and... More

The Apollo Best Western PLUS is a fabulous Hotel and always provides a comfortable and convenient place to stay. We had a short time to call-in and meet some friends and the Apollo gave us exactly what we were looking for.
