Stayed on a Saturday night and it is a good Budget hotel. Rooms are small, but clean and very comfy bed. Small bathroom but works and the shower was fine and powerful. Found the room hot and we had the option of leaving the window open which was fine but with the local yahoos walking past at 3am, it was a bit noisy. They did have air conditioning in the room but I couldn't be bothered trying to work out the control and our friends said they had there's on and it was very noisy. . Breakfast was fie but one two sliced toaster for everyone was just a pain. Was told the original toaster broke a few days ago. How hard is it to walk to the local shops and buy a few mor toasters or replace it with a proper catering one?
Otherwise not a bad place to lay your head.

We travelled to Newcastle to check out the area and just needed somewhere to spend the night. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor we asked, on booking, to have a room on the railway side of the hotel. I think that this was the first time ever that my 'request' was granted!! We arrived later than we anticipated so didn't get a feel for the area until the morning. I thought $12 for the car park was unnecessary, it's not as if our car was in a covered area. Receptionist was pleasant, although she tried to sell us breakfast, which from previous reviews, we declined! Our room was small but clean, it was really warm, but the air conditioner was too noisy to keep on overnight. Usual tea, coffee making facilities, iron, fridge. We were kept awake by the toilet, which sounded as if it was continually filling up, at 2am my husband flushed it several times and it finally stopped making a noise. Bed & pillows were comfortable. Disappointed there was no shower gel in the bathroom.

Bed: comfortable, Room: not luxurious, but warm and clean - what you would expect from an ibis hotel. Decor: simple, a bit dated, tidy. Bathroom: weird, circular design but separate shower, water pressure OK. TV: large screen and clear picture. Power outlets: only one available at desk, none beside bed. One in bathroom. Breakfast: nothing to write home about but probably what you would expect for the price. Check in/out process: slow - only one guy on the desk and he was not in any hurry. Staff: friendly. Car parking: $12 overnight to use the onsite parking - but I parked on the street right outside the hotel for free.
