Helpful staff with recommendation for restaurant.
Also accepting an incorrect booking with the wrong date.
Clean & tidy & functional; though no character to the room or reception.

Having stayed at several Ibis hotels, I generally find the standard of rooms and furnishings consistent - only the room size and staff service (and, of course, whether the closet wardrobe has a door or not) varies!

I spent one night at Ibis Newcastle on business during May 2012, which was my first stay in this Ibis. The internet rate ($129 per night) was the lowest I could find for hotels near the centre of Newcastle.

The room I was given was somewhat larger than many other Ibis rooms I have experienced, and the bed was comfortable. The TV included digital free to air channels as well as a few free cable channels. I chose to have breakfast at the hotel ($18 when booked on-line at the same time as the hotel booking) and, in addition to cereal and pastries, the hot options comprised bacon, scrambled eggs, chipolatas, tomatoes and baked beans. The breakfast was fine. Check in and check-out were both easy and quick.

Parking was $12 per night (the hotel is located just a little too far from the city centre to walk easily) although, as noted by some other reviewers, it is not secure; however, I did not experience any problems. One thing for travellers arriving by car to note is that you can only enter (and exit) the carpark when travelling in an eastbound direction on Hunter Street as there is a traffic island in the middle of the road.

The only minor quibble was that the morning newspapers available the morning I stayed were the "Daily Telegraph" and "The Australian" - being in Newcastle I expected they would have at least had "The Newcastle Herald" available!

I would be happy to stay at Newcastle Ibis again.
