Jesmond Executive Villas
Ranked #20 of 24 Hotels in Newcastle
Reviewed June 29, 2008

Stayed here for 2 nights in May as we needed to be close to our friend in the west. Great apartments, fully self contained. There is a shopping centre across the road as well as a pub with Chinese resturant. The apartment was clean and comfy and we had a spa in the bathroom. Would stay here again.

Stayed: May 2008
Thank bergrum

Stayed in an apartment in Newcastle. Although reception is a fair way away from the room, it has an amazing view of the harbour and it was humble and spaceious. I had a nice laugh with the bloke in reception too, haha.

I'd stay there again.

First arrived at the villas at Birmingham Gardens only to find there was no reception there.. We had to actually go to a separate part of town to collect our keys! Would have been nice to know this before hand!
We found the kitchen to be poorly equipped, brown smudges on the bathroom walls (gross) and just two tiny cakes of soap for our five day stay. We also were given only one set of towels for this stay - the room was not serviced at all. There was no garbage bin, in our room or in the lobby - so our weeks worth of rubbish gathered under the sink.
The hotel advertises that it has Foxtel television - it does not. It charges internet at a ridiculous rate - $20 a day! (most hotels offer it free these days!)
One of the worst things was reception staff kept giving out our spare room keys to other guests, and on 3 different occassions we had people walk straight into our room! Very unnerving. We alerted reception to this, but it kept happening.. we also found all dealings with staff to be quite rude.
Very unpleasant stay - we couldn't wait to leave!

Most of my family (four separate family groups) booked apartments with this group in April 2007. About 2 or 3 weeks before arriving in Newcastle to attend a wedding, we found out that our bookings had been cancelled as 'flood victims' were now occupying those apartments. However, we were not informed by the group by this, we were informed by a cousin who had rung up to book an apartment for himself!

We had originally booked with Jesmond Executive Villas as the bride and groom had pre-arranged with them that if they sent our business there, we would get a discount (which never happened)

It was all sorted out and a new booking made. However upon arrival we were told we were staying somewhere completely different than we were originally told. Another in our group had to even change apartments over their two night booking.

When we arrived to our apartment, we found two queen beds rather than one queen and two singles as requested. There were about 4 mattresses extra. We rang to inform them we needed an extra bed made up because of this.
When we arrived home that evening after attending the wedding, we found enough beds made up for 3 extra people!

The owner/host is very badly organised and I would never recommend staying at this establishment. Sure the apartments are clean, have all you could need, but the service is just absolutely terrible.

We booked this apartment at Jesmond from a reputable accommodation guide & when we arrived we thought the place was up to standard. We were told that some of the apartments were new which we could see for ourselves. The apartment we were given looked great at face value but when we got down to brass tacks: the towel rail was off the wall and in the wardrobe; there were no hangers in the wardrobe; there were 18 wine glasses but no bread board in a "fully equipped kitchen"; the TV & video were 2 metres in the air with no remote to turn them on; there was 24 hour video surveillance in the car parks but our car was broken into & trashed & no video tapes were made available to the police; no plug for the wash basin; we were overcharged on arrival but I have to say that this was rectified pretty quickly; the phones were not connected & I could go on and on . The attitude of management was one of couldn't care less and I would not recommend this place to anyone and believe me, we are spreading the word to anyone who will listen. The RACT is next.

Jesmond Executive Villas manage various sites around Newcastle. I've been to most of these over the last couple of years with very mixed results. The lastest debacle with bookings have confirmed that they deserve a wide berth unless you confirm and reconfirm. We booked the New York Apartments at 328/330 Wharf Road. These are on a busy road with the church children's mission across the road; no airconditioning, beds sag if more than one person is in the double bed. The key was not available when we arrived and they had cancelled one of our bookings. There are 30 internal stairs. There are no food stores etc close by. You must have a car. Overpriced. If you must stay in this vicinity, try the Quest Apartments up the road.
The Derby Street Apartments (Woolshed) by comparision are nice and cheaper. Do not get one on the street because of the constant traffic noise, but ask for one of the rear apartments. (No 9 I think). At least there are food shops and all the eateries you could wish for close by.
The Cooks Hill house is OK, being split between upstairs and downstairs. We had the downstairs and the garage. OK with plenty of room, and priced well.
However, the owning company seems poorly organized with reported troubles with the local council over zoning and usage in Derby Street and Wharf Road. They said our apartment had been cancelled because of an injunction brought by the council. However, it did have an occupant, and I reckon it was a long termer that suited their purposes better than we did. They cancelled it without telling us ONE day before the wedding we were attending.
The Jesmond villas are located well out of town.
