Booked late and got a Fantastic Room Rate, Room was perfect for a Traveller with Tea and Coffee Facilities in the room, Milk and a Bar Fridge supplied. Bed was comfortable and everything worked well. They have great facilities for a late check in and staff were lovely. WiFi was good and easy to use. Will stay here again.

After a 5 hour drive from my home town I was looking forward to a pleasant night's sleep before resuming my journey to Urunga (near Coffs Harbour) the next morning. The room was clean enough and a bit larger than Ibis Budget specifications but it was apparent that one or two of the walls in the room was in need... More

Be very careful you don't get a room fronting one of the busiest roads in Newcastle. Room 129 was a disaster. The traffic noise unbearable. Think I got about 4 hrs sleep the whole night. Finally got to sleep after midnight only to be woken up at 4am by a revving motorbike. Trucks and cars just went all night long,... More

The staff are very friendly and do try to help. The bathroom is very small. So font taje clothes into the bathroom with you to get changed. Otherwise they will end up wet. The tv reception is shocking. The bed is comfy. It's a cheap place to stay. So good for a night or 2. But. I wouldn't recommend any... More

Checked in late after the origin as we had booked online there was a bit of miscommunication with one of the booking staff members on the phone, but the manager Rob rectified the issue no problems. Clean and comfortable the only negative thing i can say is it can be quite noisy in the mornings from all the traffic. Thanks

Stayed here 3 nights and would come again. It's a 10 min drive to Uni Newcastle Callagan campus. The reception staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic as you would expect. TV and ensuite yes, but no iron or desk or dedicated spot for your suitcase. It reminded me of a ship's cabin. About 1km away from... More

I stayed one night as I was doing a night tour of Maitland Gaol. The check in was easy and the room adequate. The shower/toilet combo was funny - I felt like I was on a cruise ship. Be aware though, you'll need to close the door when showering as you'll need to foot the bill when the fire engine... More
