We stayed there for one night in Newcastle. It is above the pub, but you can barely hear any noise. Room and bathroom were pristine clean and we were even gifted drinks on the house. The restaurant was good too, the burger and the pizza were very tasty. The only minor thing was that wifi was not working when we...

The room was wonderful - clean, spacious enough and very comfortable. I had booked for a one night stay via Tripadvisor and the entire process of checking-in etc was extremely smooth. That night however, we were unfortunate enough that another guest at the tavern decided to smoke in their room and that meant that the deafening alarms went off somewhere...

We were looking for somewhere to stay near Mayfield and were told about "Sunnyside." Who would have thought, we were glad we stayed there. It's easy to get to from the expressway and in the middle of the sports / entertainment precinct. The rooms were larger than expected and were very well presented, with a great ensuite. The area is...

The cleanest most modern pub room I have ever stayed in, was recommended by a friend as we'll be coming down to watch son play for Knights and can't recommend it highly enough. Great facilities, great food, great service.

Nice clean small room with a very high ceiling. Train tracks out our window but did not hear any trains. Good food but a little overpriced. We could not find anthying interesting or any restaurant within walking distance.

This hotel is in an ideal position for the Entertainment centre. They run a courtesy bus service to and from the venue. The rooms are really comfortable with a kingsize bed and ensuite.A powerpoint in the ensuite would be beneficial and a small jug in the room to make a cuppa would save a walk to the end of the...

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.
