My girlfriend and I went out to enjoy the underground jazz night. Beers were well priced with fun and bubbly bartenders. Helpful and happy people! Jazz was excellent and a very happy and relaxed environment. Good times!

Stayed for a couple of nights. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room nice and clean. Good location in quiet part of town near beach and 15 min walk to Queens Wharf. You do have to climb a staircase with your luggage so may not suit some people. Enjoyed our stay but found the mattress too hard (room 5) and only...

Stayed for two nights (Fri and Sat) at the Grand Hotel. Great location, really close to the bus transfer from Hamilton Station, and just a few minutes walk down to beautiful Newcastle Beach. Stayed in a top floor room - it was super lovely! Clean, fresh, bright, airy, sunny... no balcony up on the top floor, but the sunshine flooding...

If you're looking for a budget stay in Newcastle and a quiet place, you should definitely choose the Grand Hotel. Not a busy street, not many cafes and bars there so there are no crowds, however, it's a short walk to the esplanade with plenty of cafes and bars. The room was clean and nice, very good value for money.

Stayed here for four nights with my teenage son this week. Great experience. The rooms are old, as you might expect from an old pub, but though small ours was perfectly adequate with a generous ensuite bathroom and good air conditioning. We had dinner here one night, in the cosy front bar, and that was good too. Didn't try breakfast...

My wife and I stayed at the Grand on a Saturday night. The room we stayed in was on the top floor, it had plenty of room, was clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The only grumble would be parking, but there is a parking station across the road.

We stayed on the top floor on a Monday night so it was extra quiet. Pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and modern decor. Great facilities for the price - air con, ceiling fan, USB connections by both sides of the bed, full size hair dryer, great big hanging cupboard, full size ironing board and iron, tea/coffee, mini fridge with wine...

I really enjoyed staying here. I am not sure why, probably mostly because the staff were friendly and the food at the bar and the restaurant was pretty good. The room itself is 'quaint' - on the small side and a bit dark. But it felt romantic and I found myself being very comfortable and happy. I really enjoyed its...
