I was unexpectedly required to stay over a couple of nights in Newcastle on business. I booked in at late notice at the Gateway Inn and discovered a little piece of luxury in Mayfield. I occupied a Hotel/Motel style room. The room was a good size and more than adequate for a pleasant stay.
The establishment is very modern and has everything that a business traveller could ask for. The room was squeaky clean, the sheets crisp and the bed comfortable. Shower and toilet facilities nwere ultra modern and again very clean. The double shower was an unexpected novelty.
The staff were very pleasant and extremely helpful. Just across a courtryard is the very well appointed Wests Mayfield Club where restaurants and entertainment, (including Pokies if one is so minded) may be found.
A breakfast in the Mayfield Club Bistro turned out to be a pleasing surprise. The doorman suggested that I try the Spanish Omlette and it was excellent; a nice change from the usual bacon, egges, sausages and tomato of most places.
I was there on a business trip to the CSIRO and it is literally just down the road. For anyone having business with the industrial businesses in Mayfield, this establishment is ideally located.
I will certainly be staying there again when I visit Newcastle.
