Rated 4 stars.... maybe one too many.
The carpark & complimentary wifi are excellent for the business guest, surrounds and pool are very inviting.
It is obviously an old hotel which has has somewhat of a renovation. It has good quality furniture in the rooms however some of the finishes let it down for example - I had a “Deluxe Queen” Room, the shower only has a shower curtain & does not have a moulded base so the water simply goes straight onto the bathroom floor and makes a real mess, I accidently knocked the shower head off the holder and it sprayed water all over the ceiling, walls and mirror!
On my first night I was rudely awoken at 2am by the clock radio alarm which had been set to go off at the highest volume (prank by previous room guest?) Not impressed... This sort of stuff should be checked when the room is cleaned between guests.
You will definitely need a car if you want to stay here, drive to Newcastle city is about 10-15 mins, and Charlestown Shopping Centre is a bit of a walk along a busy road.
