“Not a four star hotel”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is not a 4 star hotel!

The rooms are dated circa 1980s, the car park rooms need double glazed windows for the 5am garbage collection. Staff disinterested. Time to replace the mattresses :-(
Good location, shame about the price...cheaper to stay in NYC...

The room we had consisted of a double bed in an average sized room on the beach side.The cleanliness of the room and the hotel was spotless. The fittings and decor were nice and the hotel and rooms obviously maintained. We found some of the staff somewhat abrupt bordering on rudeness and others were very friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant, Jonah's, was exquisite but not cheap. The beach view from our room was magnificent. It is not every hotel where you can watch a whale going past your window. The room was quiet even with the window open and we enjoyed being lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean. Overall, we would stay again.

Room Tip: Get the beach side rooms. Even the lower one are have spectacular views

We enjoyed the view and easy walking distance to everywhere we needed to go. Hotel is a bit dated and could do with a makeover however it was clean. I thought it was a bit expensive considering no breakfast, no free wi fi, although that appeared to be the going rate for the region.

Attended an event at the hotel and decided to stay . Wife also impressed.
The decor was reminiscent of top late 80's hotels - a style that I personally enjoyed.
Staff were helpful and service was good.
The breakfasts in the Restaurant were good as were the teas and lunches at the event I attended.
Our lagoon view room had a good outlook - unfortunately we couldn't use the balcony as these are being upgraded to modern safety requirements.
The rooms were well appointed and the bed comfortable.

Room Tip: Ocean View near the top floor would have fantastic views.

Two adults and one child stayed on the second floor in an ocean view. One double/one single bed. This is not a hotel I would normally stay in. I did not realise how old it is. Very dated. Old style bathroom, beds, bedspreads so old fashioned. The bed was not comfortable. Very, very small rooms. We paid $239 with no extras. Hello this is Newcastle. This rate is ridiculous. If you read my reviews we stay at true 5 star hotels in many countries so I know what to expect from a hotel this is a 3 star at best. We were only here for 1 night, thank goodness.

We were booked here for a family wedding to find the room rate, which is comparable with a Sydney city Centre hotel providing leisure facilities, free WiFi and breakfast, included a view of the car park, no breakfast, a broken information service, a bar that closes at 10.30 and particularly pokey rooms. The rooms we found to be clean and included a well stocked mini bar, unfortunately this was kept in a noisy fridge which kept waking us up. We inquired about room rates on arrival because the wedding party had booked 10 but were told this could not be discussed and the reception intimated this was not negotiable. Unfortunately this has left a very bitter taste in our mouths of Newcastle value and hospitality in an otherwise pretty part of Australia. My advise to everyone would be stay somewhere else and travel to the view.

We have always wanted to stay, so..... mid weed prices allowed this to come true. What a lovely old place, it's a classic ! treat yourself to an Ocean View Room and dinner in the restaurant. The dinner was suburb the wait staff were excelled only by the food. We felt spoilt and totally looked after. I can't speak highly enough about the staff and the room was divine too, small but lovely and the VIEW... go on... treat yourself

Room Tip: Ocean View, Rooms are small but beautifully appointed, have a bath and not a shower (not good water...
