“Village Vibe: community vs creepy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

Unable to look out a window and the 'ensuite' conversion enabled by a locked door leading directly to the restaurant on other side of the wall were initially disconcerting. However, the sincere hospitality, cleanliness and VERY tasteful renovation /decor and I was in love with this 'pub' within hours, the food is fabulous and the area generally has a great vibe.
If you are a princess about toiletries like me, only two bars of soap provided which is ok if you have brought your own stash. Guys don't tend to be concerned and again I mention this for the ladies as a heads up not as a put off. The jazz on Thursday night was awesome. The only negative is the access for guests which we understand the options are very limited in a heritage listed building. Many thanks to Kaitlyn and other staff for your great work. We would definitely return.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

It is a nice hotel, with brand new furniture and nice, clean and tidy rooms. The staff is very kind and professional. There is a cool bar/restaurant downstairs perfect for wine tasting and enjoying the nightlife or a nice evening. The only con is that it is a little bit far from the city center, although there is a bus that stops almost in front of the hotel every hour that can take you to the city center. But anyway we enjoyed our stay there.

Great location close to city, excellent quality appointments even in the shared bathroom option. Quality food and friendly helpful staff.

Highly recommended for either long or short stays and represents excellent value for money.

My husband and I stayed here at the last minute while visiting friends in the area. The rooms were very clean and although there was a share bathroom it was great. Tea and coffee making facilities 24/7. Staff were great and extremely helpful. Off street parking and great meals.

Stayed here on valentines day, last minute booking, they were very accommodating considering the restaurant was booked out we were offered a late table, and the food was great. The rooms were nice and clean and modern, not in a tacky way, and there is a shared bathroom which i had no problem with, it was also very clean and well kept. Very pleased we chose this accommodation, the price was right too!

We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay at carrington place! The staff were very welcoming and the food is to die for! Beautiful rooms and very surprising for the excellent price! I can't wait to visit and dine, drink and stay there again! Great location and very close to Newcastle cbd. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to getaway and relax and spoil themselves!
