“"Great overall"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

My husband and I were very happy with our experience at Chifley.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, greeting you warmly when you arrive.
The rooms are adequately fitted out, clean, with a decent kitchen and comfortable bed.

The location is fantastic, just a quick walk over to the waterfront where you have an array of good restaurants to choose from.

Great place for a short trip or extended stay, and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay again!

Pros:
Location
Plenty of space

Cons:
Everything costs extra: wifi, parking you name it, add extra.
Parking was a pain because the room keys didn't open the garage door like they were supposed to.
For the price I expected a bit more high end finishing.

Dear Ozcanbyrnes,

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you had some difficulties with the car park access. I am aware this can be problematic and we have replaced the card reader at the car park entrance in an effort to minimise these issues. The room key cards contain a magnetic strip and can be sensitive to magnets so it is best to keep the cards away from portable electronic devises.

kind regards

Our stay at the Chifley Apartments in Newcastle was fantastic. Even though we checked in earlier than expected, it was no problem. The reception staff were professional and kind and made us feel very welcome. We asked for a specific room number and they juggled things to make that happen for us. The apartment was clean, modern, nicely furnished, with plenty of space in all the rooms, large TV, and a lovely balcony. I’ve read some comments posted on Trip Advisor from other guests who did nothing but complain, but I guess there just isn’t pleasing some people. I think the $225 we paid for the apartment was great value, especially with the 11am checkout. The location was a stone’s throw from the water front boulevard and cafes, and a short drive from Darby Street (lovely breakfast/lunch there!). Although the Chifley isn’t right on the water and we didn’t have water views, the view over the pool area was quite pleasant. The lap pool is great and very refreshing. It was a bit tricky getting to the car park – you have to do a blocky because it’s one-way, but once you know where to go it’s fine. The parking fee is $18 overnight, which I suppose could be less, but at least it’s secure underneath the building. A special thank you to Belinda at reception who went out of her way to make our stay very comfortable and pleasant - your manager is lucky to have you. We will definitely stay at the Chifley again.

Room Tip: We can recommend an apartment with views of the pool

We lived here for 16.5 months and loved it. Everyone there treated us like family, including the manager. The location of this Chifley is perfect. There were plenty of great eating places within walking distance, and we always felt safe. If you stay here, you have to eat at the Landing. It just opened, and the food is fantastic. The Dockyard is good, too, and if you eat there, you can charge it to your room.

Stayed one night for a conference meeting hosted by the hotel. Service was friendly. Had a 1 bedroom apartment with some view of the surrounding area including the city. It was very close to the train station, which was very convenient for me. Breakfast was basic, but not bad.

Great location in Newcastle, close to restaurants. We stayed in two bedroom apartment. The living area was spacious but the bedroom were a little cramped. Got a few bruises from the bedroom furniture. Other than that it was a nice place to stay.

The perfect location- Short walk to all the cafes and restaurants. The Rooms were clean, inviting and very modern- exactly what I was after. The Pool area was perfect for relaxing during the day and I would definitely stay again at this hotel. Thank you for an amazing stay!
