“Business stop with convenience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

A stop that was required for business, booked by my colleague, the room was very clean and spacious. Being part of a club, the restaurants are good, Mexican a relaxing meal. Breakfast hard to find, when there average meal and service not good.
Would I stay again, yes, now I know more about the services.

Stayed July 2012, traveled on business

My fiance and I stayed here for one night when our footy team played the Knights, and we loved that it was only a 10-minute walk to the ground. We also liked that it joins onto Wests leagues club, so it was easy to meet up with friends for a few drinks before the game.
On the down side... the room was very small - definitely not worth the money we paid! Our "garden view" room on the 2nd floor actually had a view of the bottle shop next door. The bed was too soft (which didn't really bother me) but my fiance woke up with a sore back, shoulders, and neck. There were lots of tiny dead bugs on the window sill, and the bath tub had mould around it.
Overall though, it was a pleasant stay.

Stayed one night in a garden room on first floor( it was really the ground floor).
Room was spacious and comfortable with 2 T.Vs, one in small lounge area and one in bedroom.
I was travelling alone but room would be great for 2adults and 1 or 2 children as the lounge pulls out to a sofa bed.
I loved the deep bath but can understand why people have commented on difficulty getting in and out, luckily I have fairly long legs.
I loved the lighting in bathroom. Plenty of light to put on makeup.
Had room service at night. Very prompt. Chicken dish was ok but loved the steamed vegetables,nothing fancy but tasty.
Bed very comfortable and great black out curtains for sleeping in.
Having Wests Club adjacent to hotel an added bonus.
Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room on level 2 or 3, as I had to keep my door shut and locked all the time as it...

We recently stayed here for two nights to visit a family member living on campus at the University. It was a quick and easy trip to the Uni from the Inn. The rooms were clean, the bed very comfortable, the shower was hot. It was great having plenty of choice of restaurants under the same roof on a wet and cold weekend. It was also unbelievably quiet. We didn't hear any noise at all, either from other guests or road noise.

The only small grumbles were the pull out bed wasn't very comfortable for our other teenager, the TV didn't work in the lounge area, and the little freezer in the refrigerator didn't freeze. Overall though, we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here while doing some work at Uni of Newcastle. Was a very quick taxi ride to the uni. Reception were friendly and room was clean and nice. Access to the club next door which had restaurants + food court was good as I didn't have to go very far for a decent feed. Asked reception for best place to shop, they rang the taxi and it was very hassle free to get there. Their recommendations were good and honest. I would stay here again for my next visit to Newcastle as they provide all you want in a stay away from home.

We stayed as a family as it is very hard to find accommodation for 4 in Newcastle. The room was clean and comfortable, perhaps starting to show a bit of wear and tear. The breakfast buffet was OK nothing sensational though. Our main complaint was the noise from the other guests, from the bucks party who were proudly telling everyone they had been questioned by security at 3:30am for stealing alcohol to the hockey team playing hockey in the hall at 8am!! The staff let everything down by actually just walking past the hockey players. Check out was done by a girl who seemed far more interested in flirting with her male counterpart.
