You cannot swing a cat in the rooms, we left without staying there because the shower / toilet cubicle had a terrible smell and my daughter was so upset about the cramped conditions. we could not even pass each other in the room without one sitting on the bed.

Get what you pay for - a clean comfy bed and good shower, if that’s all you need this place is perfect.

Hi Anonymous, Thanks for the review! We have made our rooms very basic with limited touch points due to the current climate. Please never hesitate to speak to the team for additional amenities and I hope you're staying safe!

Clean, comfortable and quiet. Value for money. Friendly staff. The downside is the approach and driveway entry.

Nigel! Thank you for the great review! We are working on the drive way and will be installing boom gates in the future. Unfortunately, this blockade was created as numerous people were using it as a way to race to the lights who werent staying in the hotel. Hopefully we can see you again as we continue to upgrade the hotel!

Hi Ken, Thanks for the review! I followed up on that room and had the showerhead and pressure addressed where possible!

Nothing wrong with the room. I’d get room for overnight stay, did exactly as advertised. Hotel location is the let down. Located on the road that I can only assume is the Newcastle burnout and street racing meet point. Not a lick of sleep. Unfortunate because this is obviously not the fault of the hotel.

Hi Anonymous, Thankyou for your reivew, we always appreciate the feedback. Unfortunately we are located at a crossroad and endeavour to upgrade and room move where we can minimise the noise as much as possible. We appreciate the recognition that the hotel can't control the traffic noise. Kindest Regards,
