thankyou for your review!

It was conveniently located for the purpose of my visit to Newcastle. It was clean and freshly renovated. Comfortable bed and having a sink in the room was good. On a fairly busy main road ... used to quiet location. NRL game meant a very full and noisy bar which remained so until midnight closing time. Would suit people of similar interests ... not my thing.

When booking this room, it was advitised as a hotel (not a room above a pub). On arrival, the light didn’t work, we had no remote (therefore we couldn’t use the fan). There was also no heating in the room so it was freezing! One thin blanket on top, no sheets or spare blankets. The shared bathroom didn’t even have soap to wash your hands with. One of the showers didn’t work. Eventually we got the remote for the room but it still didn’t work and it was after 0130 when we got back so we were unable to sort it out. Lastly, no power points to charge my phone. All in all, definitely NOT worth the money.

It was a clean comfortable room, which was fit for purpose and in a good location. The only things wrong, was that there was no airconditioning (and it was an unpleasantly warm evening), and no power point anywhere in the room, which meant I could not charge up my phone and had to rely on the bartender to do it for me. Otherwise, happy with the accommodation and service.
