This was our third time at this hotel and whilst it has had a facelift there were a couple of concerns: the room was clean but dusty (not good for someone with hayfever), the queen size bed seemed to have sagged in the middle which made it difficult to get comfy.

Found the cleanliness not up to scratch. eg. the doona inside the sheets were disgusting. They obviously dont get checked regularly for cleanliness

laundry and linen is changed daily. Our house keepers are diligent when it comes to marks on linen but as we use House with No Steps as our linen provider, sometimes things get missed. Our utmost apologies

Carrington is a quiet and pleasant area of Newcastle with lovely old buildings, waterfront and parks. Carrington Place is excellent value if you don't mind sharing a bathroom. There are plenty of cafes within walking distance, none of which I have ever sampled as they are not open when I leave for my business purpose. The restaurant on site offers fine dining, with a fixed price for two courses on Tuesdays. There is a less formal option of pizza or other "tapas" style food in the front bar which I can also recommend from previous experience. Remember that light switches are hanging from the ceiling (pull a cord) - I have spent a frustrating few minutes trying to light the room running my hand over the wall beside the door. Also annoying - the many power outlets around the room are very low to the ground and may not fit your charger or laptop cord. Look up - the TV has a power outlet higher on the wall with a spare socket!

Hi Laan Thanks for the feedback - with the power sockets down low this is due to the Heritage listing of the building. When you stay with us just let us know you require a power board and this can be organised. We did initially place them in all rooms but found that they would go missing so this is the better option for us. We look forward to seeing you again. Regards LeeAnne

Toilet and Shower facilities are horrible

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: most certainly not in town
I booked this place online while we were on our way to Newcastle, the images looked great online so I booked and paid for it. Unfortunately I didn't take notice of the style of room and when we got there it was a Pub and the rooms were upstairs. The room I booked was a twin but, I kept an open mind got the key and went into the room and the beds were smaller than a single, if thats at all possible but, it got worse because the toilet and bathroom facilities were down the hall!!! I dropped the key back into the box and left the hotel and booked another room elsewhere which was new and beautiful with coffee and tea making facilities in the room but more importantly it had a bathroom. This simply taught me a valuable lesson to take note of what I was booking and check the reviews carefully.

The exterior of our building is an old pub - we are a restaurant / bar / guesthouse. We dont have loud music all night. We do advertise that we have shared bathroom facilities - this is due to the heritage listing of the building on renovation we were not permitted to have rooms with bathrooms in them. Our single beds are standard size - sorry you didnt think that they were. If you had spoken with the staff at the time we may have been able to accomodate you in a room with its own bathroom - we have one. Regards LeeAnne Webster Manager
