Interestingly we read that the hotel survived the Newcastle earthquake and was a used response headquarters, the current owner is in the slow process of updating the hotel. It is perhaps quirky - and perhaps would be a great retro hotel if the rooms can be updated. The rooms are clean although the smell of air fresheners is very strong, fortunately we opened a window and went out for few hours. The hotel needs new linen, our bed was okay -what I expected that when we went entered the room, the single beds had been upgraded. We didn't order room service or eat in the restaurant - I didn't feel like going back in time and the weather was too beautiful to be in the restaurant. The reception gentleman was very helpful recommending a local italian restaurant for dinner and helped us with secure parking for our car underneath the hotel.
The location is great, but we paid way too much for the night however there was a concert in town that weekend. It is very close to the beautiful old heritage buildings and beach so we certainly paid for location. I hope they manage to do the upgrades soon because you would be better off at another hotel or stay out of the city area.
