I've stayed here more than 5 times and everytime it has been without issue, rooms are clean and well maintained, amenities are great. Check-in and out is smooth and without hassle. I always stay here when I'm in Newcastle, the location is great and central, but quiet enough to be relaxing.

Room Tip: Select rooms with 1 bed as the multiple bedded rooms are a bit tight.

Easy check-in with friendly staff, helpful with all requests. Room was clean and the bed comfy, although the water-saving toilet and handbasin took a bit of getting used to! A choice of restaurants within easy walking distance and close to the bus route into the city. An armchair and a microwave in the room would be improvements. Thanks for a comfortable stay.

So many good things about this place, the location, nearby amenities, close to the beach.
Room to improve:
- Remove the automatic exhaust fan and water saving tap, very loud and annoying
- Swap the huge shower for a shower bath combination and there would also be room for a vanity in the bathroom (the vanity is where the kitchenette is)
- The bed was quite hard
- Maybe add a lounge chair
- Add some plates, bowls, 2 sets of cutlery for take away

But other than that it's pretty good for the price, it had the best wifi of any hotel we've stayed at and also lots of power points which is a huge plus.

Room Tip: Ask for downstairs near carpark if you hate stairs.

Family room at the Merewether Motel was a great option for us. Loved having the extra room at the 4 person table and the bigger bathroom. Chinese restaurant a few steps away and the Mary Ellen Pub the other. Service station next door and even a Celebrations bottle shop so everything there you need if you want to stay in. Parking is easy, nice little table to sit outside if you want and bikes to ride. Sparkling clean and lovely people. Early check in is no problem if they have the room.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the outdoor table downstairs each morning under cover.

Ordinary experience at the Merewether... Couldn't match the advertised internet price. Internet so slow it's unusable. The pros... Room was clean, bed was comfy and location suited me...
Won't be back...
