It is a long way upstairs, especially if you carry Luggage (but the Staff is very friendly and helpful, I'm sure they would assist). The Room was fresh, clean and very comfy. The en-suite was spacious and modern. For dinner we went downstairs and had a tasty meal in the Hotels own Restaurant.

As stated above, but far from the truth. Could not have had abetter room and the staff were fantastic especially Georgia and Manager. Close enough to Newcastle and only $10 in uber. Good feed as well!

Our room was good a bit small; it was very clean; comfortable bed & quiet. Nice, friendly & obliging staff. It would be nice to have a fridge, kettle, & milk in the room to make tea, especially first thing in the morning & last thing at night, instead of having to walk to the end of a corridor And...

On arrival we were met by a friendly staff member and given all instructions regarding pin codes for the accommodation upstairs and personally shown to our room. The room was... More

Had an overnight stay and would stay again. My room was on the small and basic side but was clean and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice cold beer in the main bar and a decent selection on the menu in the dinning room. If you are passing through Newcastle the Sunnyside is worth a look.

I attended my brother-in-law's 70th birthday party at the Sunnyside Tavern last night and the whole experience was wonderful. They had the function room booked which also included an outdoor patio. The finger food was beautifully done and the staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. We booked a room there for the night and was blown away when we... More

Very quiet rooms and excellent menu and great staff made the beers in the pub taste better. I picked this hotel because of the price and it was good value. The rooms were large and had large new ensuites. I'd stay again.
