Ibis Newcastle
Ranked #10 of 24 Hotels in Newcastle
Reviewed 14 June 2012

The Ibis Hotel in Newcastle is well located, within walking distance of nice restaurants and shops. As has been mentioned here, the immediate surrounds are pretty run down, but it’s not a long walk to find some nicer areas. Wickham Station is just around the corner.
My room was very comfortable and a decent size. The bed was comfortable, the desk was actually big enough to work at, and the wardrobe is well designed. All the usual amenities are included. The bathroom was new and clean. All in all an excellent hotel room. Sleep quality was great – the train line passes behind the hotel, but the trains are quiet and they don’t run all night.
Inside the entrance is a restaurant offering breakfast and dinner. The place seemed comfortable enough. There was a “Discover Newcastle” terminal in the reception too – a touch screen unit that supplies information for tourists – an excellent idea.

Great for the disabled, good location as its close the restaurant strip. It's a run down area of Newcastle but the staff were friendly but you feel safe in it. It is a comfortable room, good bed, nice facilities in room. Fridge is a bit noisy and air con can be. We stayed on bottom floor near front road, surprisingly not much traffic noise but there was plenty of people walking by making loud sounds. As you can imagine, you don't get much sleep. Overall, it was fine for a one night stay, nothing more. The breaky was great! $15 per person on a special, worth every dollar.

Room Tip: Don't get bottom floor near road, too much noise.

Have just returned from an Overnight Stay at the IBIS . In short - a clean comfortable hotel . The rooms contain all you need , the bathroom area is fine yes its a bit small but for the single traveller its fine. It was very quiet , the beds were comfy and the front desk staff were all exceptionally polite and helpful , check in and out was a breeze . I wouldn't stay here with a family but for the single or couple travelling its perfect - about 10 mins walk from the restaurant strip and the Hunter st main area so its close enough to everything . Parking out back $12 overnight . Nice little cafe area - which I didnt eat at but saw plenty of others at both dinner and breakfast and the food looked fine , Some foxtel channels and i managed to connect to free cable on the phone . All in All this is a quite acceptable hotel and if I was travelling to Newcastle again on business would definitely stay here again.c

Room Tip: Try to avoid the ground floor rooms and maybe also ask for a non st view room to cut down on some no...
