Breakfast was the best part. Staff were lovely. Dinner was over priced and ordinary.. The room was the biggest disappointment, believe we were placed in a disabled room, no bath and when you went to shower you pull a curtain around to block the toilet. The whole floor floods, slippery as. You then have to place towels over the bathroom floor to be able to safely go to the toilet after someone has showered. Over $500, wasn't worth it. Breakfast and the staff were the only thing that saved the trip.

Soulless Event

Pros: Room size adequate
Cons: Everyone seems to come by car. Vehicular entrance to hotel is therefore critical.
Location: Proximate to what is available in Newcastle. At the moment Newcastle is re-inventing itself. Removal of the train divides the urban space.
Arriving by car I found there is no driveway to pull off a busy road. The hotel entrance is a short distance from a blind corner around which cars come at pace. There are 4 spaces as the front door to the hotel bound on each side by "No Standing" signs. Parking in the no standing zone near the corner is deadly. Getting out of the car safely is a challenge. I booked a harbour view room only to be given Room 118 - below tree line overlooking a very busy hotel family pool. So; nothing to look at. No reason to return. Stephen Goddard

Pros: Everything
Came up to Newcastle for a new year 4 day break. Hotel and staff are lovely. Had a leaking air con vent which leaked all over our luggage, but when notified of the problem, they were straight up to have a look and offer any help to dry our clothes and if we liked to more to a new room we could. Problem fixed , we didn't move rooms and they were most helpful with dealing with this instantly. Food in resturant was beautiful and all staff and even house keeping always said hello.
