“Best in Newcastle”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

This is a must stay when in Newcastle, good location and with various facilities i.e spa, casino etc, makes for a rest place after long working day. When travelling to the small towns safety is key and this hotel provides that.

The hotel offers everything we've come to expect from the reliable garden court brand. Clean, well furnished rooms, friendly staff, good breakfast and an overall comfortable stay. Was a bit expensive though.

Rooms clean, neat, TV set very dated tho with distorted screen, dinner & breakfast excellent, staff very helpful & friendly. Only bar that I could locate was inside the casino area with very limited selection of premium drinks. Overall, great for an overnight stay.

I had a wonderful stay at the hotel, the check-in staff were friendly and professional. The room was well sized and had all the basic amenities. The proximity of the hotel to the mall added to its allure, it was the perfect stop for a night of rest. The dinner served at the restaurant was superb and delicious, the room service was prompt. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. My only let down was the buffet breakfast which unfortunately has become synonymous with Garden Court Hotels.

The hotel looked rather kitch from the outside, and being situated at a casino, I was unsure. However, the room was perfectly adequate for two people and the food served in their restaurant was great. The bed was very comfortable too! We enjoyed our night in Newcastle.

I stayed at the hotel for 1 night on a recent business trip. it offers all the basic ameneties offered by a 3 start hotel. clean, friendly staff and decent sized rooms. problem however is that at R1200 it is overpriced when comparing to other Garden Court hotels around South Africa.
