“Peace and quiet in the city”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

A thumbs up to the Apollo. Large, re-decorated rooms in the family suite are clean, well equipped and most importantly quiet. For the two nights we stayed we slept well both nights in comfortable beds with no disturbing external noise at all. The service is professional and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. Well done

Room Tip: Certainly recommend the family suites for families

I had a very enjoyable stay at the Apollo. We were greeted by a friendly and efficient lady at the desk. The room was spacious and clean. The rooms looked out on a beautiful bush setting which made it a relaxing view, causing you to forget you were in a busy city. The breakfast the following morning was generous and delicious. Carpet was being replaced near our rooms but did not interfere with our use of the hotel.
Only complaint was the size of the beds in the twin rooms. Maybe I'm too used to sleeping in a queen size bed but I found the single sized beds a bit on the small side for an adult. Also the full-length mirror in the bathroom is embarrassingly located directly in front of you as you sit on the toilet. Not sure about you but I prefer not to watch myself sitting on the loo! Apart from those two things, the stay was comfortable and I would return to stay here again.

I can only send a positive message to everyone. We enjoyed our time at the Apollo. The staff were always smiling. Nothing was a hassle to them. The rooms have been re decorated . Lovely and fresh . The Apollo is central if you need to travel into Newcastle or out to Lake Macquarie. Great spot

Our recent stay at the Apollo was quite enjoyable. The rooms are spacious, clean & modern, with a nice bush outlook off our balcony. It is a very convenient location to Charlestown, with plenty of off road parking and despite being on the highway, there was no road noise. The pool in summer would be quite welcoming & there is a convenient little gym fitted with modern equipment & TV's. We had room service one night & the meals were delicious. This isn't a "luxury hotel" although it fitted with everything you need and is one of the best in this price range.Thankyou Apollo for providing value for money.

Room Tip: Choose a Ground floor room. Some rooms have parking quite close to building entrances for ease of mo...

Comfortable accommodation with good location. It was very close to Charlestown square mall and very convenient. One criticism if I have make is that we weren't allowed to get loyalty points and frequent flyer points because we booked through Expedia. Otherwise overall it was good choice.

Booked through wotif - last minute mystery booking - what a great surprise. Very comfortable, large rooms, staff were lovely - thanks :) Would book this room again. Would be nice to come in warmer weather and make the most of the lovely pool.
