Visited this hotel with friends after touring the Hunter Valley Vineyards. What a wonderful place and an excellent choice location, by the side of the river. We had a riverside room where we could see the tugs and river traffic. We witnessed a heavy thunderstorm at this time. The room was just wonderful. It had an entrance/kitchenette, with a lounge...

Stayed for one night, lovely hotel, valet parking and staff to help you with your luggage. Very small and unimpressive reception area, which is a shame as people can be backed up to the doorways and it crowds the space to get to the rooms etc. We were given a nice suite on the ground floor, but we couldn't really...

Just had two nights at the CP. Location is great, handy to all the touristy things along the waterfront. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Great view (room 429) over the river and out to Nobbys. The room was well appointed and the bed comfortable, however, the lighting was very ordinary (a common issue with upmarket hotels) and there...

Hotel is situated on the water and convenient to running or walking along the foreshore out to the lighthouse and also lots of nice restaurants and bars. Rooms are modern with small kitchens including fridge. Nice pool that is suitable for laps. Breakfast bar is excellent; egg station, freshly squeezed fruit juice that you make yourself and excellent coffee. It's...

Just have an overnight at the hotel. I could not fault the hotel or the staff. They could not do enough for us. Allowed us to check in early and after a friend had a stumble they patched him up. Great service by the night manager and his staff. Thanks

Always enjoy staying here. Love the location near the water and always busy. Rooms are comfortable and lots of space to spread out. Amenities are ok. Prices are high compared to other locations in Newcastle but convenient as an IHG member.

Quite expensive, and for that you get nothing special - we were in a 'city view' room.. The room was adequate, the bathroom ok in size but the water pressure was not good and the tiny bath made the shower experience poor. There were only sport channels on the pay TV and as mentioned the view was - well, non...

We went for our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised at how much more we enjoyed the weekend because we stayed here. The hotel is right on the river and the view from the window was constantly changing as cargo ships came, loaded and left. The river itself is beautiful as is the boardwalk along it. The service in the hotel...

Lovely Newcastle. I have been living in Sydney all my life and have only realised I haven't been to Newcastle so this Australia Day I took myself off for three days in the wonderful city.

Stayed last Sunday night in King Suite overlooking the water. There are some great food and bars close by if you want to get out.
