Ibis Newcastle
Ranked #11 of 23 Hotels in Newcastle
Reviewed 26 September 2011

We had a weekend in Newcastle and were quite pleased with what Ibis provided us for A$111/night (Queen Room).

ROOM SIZE?

The Queen Room definitely wasn’t among the biggest ones out there, but we actually found that it created a nice sense of intimacy. Closet isn’t all that big either but big enough for a short stay.

BED?

Was quite comfy and very clean sheets. Extra blanket and pillow in the closet.

NOISE?

Our room was facing the main street but you could hardly hear anything from the road – unless you choose to open the window. We didn’t really hear the lift or our neighbours, either, being right next to the lift and emergency exit. I don’t think anyone is staying here for good views but the tree outside the window actually works well blocking any possible peekers outside.

BATHROOM?

Was also small of size but usable, good shower but no bath. It was rather clean and without smell. It was good enough for us but I’m guessing it may bring some difficulty if you’re staying with little children.

WHAT ELSE IS IN THE ROOM?

Iron, tea and coffee facilities, a small fridge, a closet, some coat hangers, air-con, a phone, extra pillow and blanket, notepad, alarm (which has an ipod/iphone docking station), bins.

SERVICE?

Yes as seen in many reviews the team were very efficient, friendly and professional.

LOCATION?

Two-min walk from Wickham Station and a little stroll to the city. About 25min walk to the beach or 4min on the train. Pizza Hut, KFC right next door and places to eat around the hotel. Shopping Centre 5 or 6 min walk away.

ANY HEADS-UPS BEFORE MAKING MY FINAL DECISION?

Well I would recommend this hotel if you’re going there for a short stay (like we did) and aren’t aiming for luxury, grand conditions. We honestly found nothing about this hotel that was too frustrating, and I do believe the promise of “solving your problem within 15min” would really help a lot if you do find things intolerable.

Sorry about the photo quality – taken by a mobile phone. Room light is actually pleasant except the bedside ones were a bit too bright. Bathroom well lighted.

My friend & I attended the Newcastle Jazz Festival. We have stayed at the Ibis on three previous occasions and find the hotel adequate for our requirements. It is in walking distance of the Town Hall and within the range of the shuttle bus at night. Our stay is reasonably short as we check in on Friday afternoon, we are out Friday night, all day Saturday until 11 pm at night and we check out at 9.00am on Sunday. The staff were very friendly and accommodating of any service we needed.

Pillows were uncomfortable and there was noise from trains. Double glazing on window would have been good. This was our first night at the Ibis and we found it appropriate for our nights accommodation. It was easy access to venues in Newcastle and the staff were very obliging.

Good well run hotel. Handy to the Civic train station and within walking distance to the waterfront. A basic well kept hotel. No draw space

Good clean hotel in CBD. Close to several Clubs and waterfront restaurants. Courteous and efficient staff. Revamped dining room. Great value breakfast. Parking is located on site and is at a reasonable rate. A very good base for exploring the city and indeed the whole Hunter Region.

The room was dirty, tiny and has cubicle like bathrooms. The quality is summed up by the fact that they didn't bother to carpet under the beds.
