Better than usual Ibis - coffee & tea + hair dryer provided. We were in town for one night (a Saturday) to go to the theatre and the hotel is well served by rail and bus services. We were on the rail side of the hotel - definitely quieter than the hoons on the Hunter St side. The $5 muffin & coffee breakfast was a good option.

Room Tip: The railway side is quieter than the road side at weekends.

Thoroughly enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and interactions. Very helpful staff, like staying with friends. Comfortable room with obvious focus on a good night's sleep. Mission accomplished. Thanks, see you next time :)

We enjoyed our stay at the Ibis Newcastle, however, it was not the highlight of our trip. For clean and affordable, it was fine. It would have been nice to have free wifi like at our other hotels, and to be within closer proximity to everything. It is VERY close to the train station, which was a major plus, and earned it its 4th star in my review! Sadly, it's in a very depressing and abandoned part of town, and is quite a walk to any of the fantastic sights in the city. Had we not hiked quite a bit, I'd have no idea what wonderful galleries, boutiques, bars, restaurants and sights Newcastle had to offer.

Although the staff were friendly enough and the reception efficient and easy this place really feels like it was a budget painted up to be a higher end hotel. Very small room more like a ships cabin, a bathroom built into a cupboard, very claustrophobic environment. The rooms are cheaply fitted out, there is no carpet under the bed, which by the way is quiet comfortable. This is in a noisy part of town so opening the windows at night is not advisable, air conditioner certainly worked but it is large and noisy. The breakfast area is cramped and not worth visiting, it's only a few minutes walk to restaurants. Newcastle is a beautiful city, well worth a visit but unless you get a great deal don't stay here. .
