We have stayed at this motel several times now and have always found the staff friendly, the rooms clean and bright and what I love best is the good quality tea and coffee with real milk. It is close to Charlestown Square and not that far to Newcastle or the beaches.

I stayed here for one night on a work trip. I had a great room, newly renovated and updated ensuite. All the rooms face away from the busy road and even with the balcony door open the traffic was not disturbing. The balcony has a view of the nature reserve that the hotel backs onto, beautiful. The staff I experienced...

Quiet surroundings, clean, well maintained safe and secure. All staff and people are lovely and courteous at all times. The food is of the highest quality but not at the 2 hat prices. Close to everything.

Relatively clean but a little extra care could have been given. A couple of sticky marks but on the whole more than acceptable. Large spacious room with plenty of amenities. Small balcony with a view of the bush. Very tranquil. Breakfast was a big let down for me. The quality and selection was great but my whole meal was cold....

The Best Western Plus Apollo International is not in Newcastle proper, it is in Charlestown which is about 7 km outside Newcastle in what they call Greater Newcastle. The location of the hotel is great, its right next to a Hoyts cinema (walking distance) and Charlestown Square which is one of the biggest malls I've seen outside of Sydney. Staff...
