Newcastle Heights Motel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Charlestown
Reviewed 17 March 2013

The bathroom was clean and the sheets were clean, which was great. But there were small cockroaches everywhere, including inside the kettle - so we couldn't even have a cup of tea. Also they turn the lights off outside at some point which is very unhelpful and dangerous. We came back at 11pm and their sign was not lit up so we missed the driveway - twice. Also there were no lights on at all in the driveway or carpark and as it was a steep walk down, really quite dangerous. Wouldn't stay there again. Not worth $124.

I stayed two nights. The manager was friendly and helpful and check in went smoothly. Yes the rooms are a bit tatty but they were clean and everything worked. The WiFi was cheap at $10 per 24 hours with a good download allowance. I had a room service meal that was adequate on the first evening. Breakfast was good value and served on time. Keep in mind that this is not a five star hotel. Suited me but it may not suit everyone.

Just stayed one night in Newcastle. Got a free room upgrade. Place was clean, well equipped and well priced. Reception was friendly. Shops, restaurants and yummy pub in walking distance. Would stay here again.

This motel is not worth $95.00 per night and totally agree with others it should only be $50.00 per night. The queen size bed was disgusting - you could feel the springs, it was that bad my husband and I left the next morning at 6am...it was not worth sleeping in. This motel needs a 360 degree make over...If you want a good nights sleep and a decent looking motel then look elsewhere as this motel is not worth your money...sorry, just being honest.

The motel is clean, the beds are comfy but we didn't get much sleep because it is located on the Pacific Highway. We had the room located closest to the road so heard almost every car. It was central to where we had to be though and the price was reasonable
