Remember the story of Goldilocks? You know, where she broke into the home of a law-abiding family of bears and proceeded to eat all their food and sleep in their beds? Unfortunately, “that” was too “this”, and “this” was too “that”? Talk about being tough to please! Get over it, Goldie. It’s a chair, some oatmeal and a bed. Still, the pint-sized intruder had a point: When sleeping in an unfamiliar place, those types of considerations do need to be addressed.
You want a beach town that isn’t too laid-back, if that is even a thing. Or maybe a city that isn’t too metropolitan (again, is that even real?). Well, your inner Goldilocks or Baby Bear—or whatever—will find everything to be “just right” in Newcastle. And your Newcastle boutique accommodation will put you in the heart of this enchanted storybook village.
Yikes! Enough with the fairy tale analogy for now.
In Newcastle, you’ll have more beaches than days in the week, but enough excitement to keep you busy in between surfing sessions. Plus, downtown offers enough culture, attractions and nightlife without making you feel like an ocker from the Outback that just stumbled into the big city for the first time.
From watching the shark biscuits at Nobbys Beach to window-shopping at the shops and cafés up The Hill along Darby Street—and everywhere in between—you’ll find more than enough things to do to fill any itinerary. Get some quality time with the voice inside your head along the Great North Walk, or expand the conversation over pints with your mates at a local pub.
You can even take a dip in the Bogey Hole or the Newcastle Ocean Baths. But to be honest, you’d probably prefer the shower back at your Newcastle boutique hotel. It’s so much more…we think “refreshing” is the word we’re looking for.
There’s more than porridge to feast on during your getaway in Newcastle. The city serves up everything from fine dining at the Mereweather Surfhouse high on the cliffs overlooking the sea to casual fare at the intimate MoneyPenny. However—and you’re totally not going to believe this—there is a bistro called Three Bears Kitchen. They specialise in signature craft coffee drinks. And because there is cream in them, you can be sure that they won’t be too hot or too cold.
When you stay at boutique Newcastle hotels, everything is exactly the way you like it. You’ll receive impeccable service, be surrounded by stylish décor and take advantage of modern amenities. Here are some of Goldilocks’ favourite places to stay when she is in town:
