I stayed at the Apollo International in Newcastle with Mum and Dad in February of this year.
We were given a good-sized, freshly-refurbished room on the top floor at the end of a long corridor, with brand-new EVERYTHING in the room which made us so happy!
The quiet room with balcony was fresh and clean, and the linen crisp.
The balcony offers a breathtaking view of the lush valley which is abundantly covered in native trees, and which - we were reliably told - was home to a couple of resident kookaburras!
However, what REALLY impressed us most was the staff - the wonderful people running the hotel!
They were genuinely friendly, warm and happy that we were there.
And the one who stood out was Danny the Night Manager at the front desk who helped us with everything from finding a nice cruise at Port Stephens to exploring the macadamia farm in Medowie which I had no knowledge about.
Danny completely went out of his way to make us feel comfortable, and very welcome; and for that, we could NOT thank him enough!
Needless to say, we look forward to our next stay in the very near future!
