“Very comfortable and modern!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

My wife and I chose this venue on previous tripadvisor comments and it did not disappoint! Rooms were very modern and comfortable and the restaurant downstairs is also very modern and with great food and service!

Room Tip: All of the rooms I'm sure are of the same quality, we stayed in room 9.

We booked in for 3 nights. This was going to be a short holiday to celebrate my wife's 80th birthday. The rooms are on the floor above a busy pub, and it was a bit diffcult to find the entrance to ths accommodation. We were checked in at the hotel bar and escorted to our room #7.
Then came the first shock. The room was tiny. A Kingbed occupied most of the room, leaving a couple of feet between it and the walls. Nowhere to park the suitcases, no wardrobe, no drawers, a 12 inch railing in the corner of the room with 3 clothes hangers.
The bathroom was fine, except that it had a see-through glass door. The decor was nice and modern, but overall the place was unlivable - not for a stay of 3 days.
I think it would be fine for someone attending a function in the hotel below and not wanting to drive home, or someone with minimum luggage, or a one night stand, but not for regular travelers.
I told Lucas, the manager, of our disappointment and he was gracious enough to not only return our money, but even arranging some accommodation elsewhere. By the way the price of the room was very reasonable, and I am sure the service would have been great.

Lukas did mention your visit to our Hotel and was truly disappointed that you and your wife deemed the accommodation unsuitable to your needs.

We are, as mentioned in most of our reviews, boutique accommodation at a vibrant cosmopolitan hotel that offers first class service.

The rooms provide all of the creature comforts, and the beds are like sleeping on a cloud. If you ever return to Newcastle give us a call, room 1 will satisfy all of your needs and more.

With Kind Regards

We liked the decor and the overall ambience of the hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient. Enjoyed the restaurant. The Junction provides a good base to explore Newcastle. We walked into the city, swam at Bar Beach and there are plenty of nearby cafes.

I do wonder if the 'see-through' bathroom door feature is also there in twin rooms.

So you would have been in rooms 8 or 9...these are our only two rooms that feature the glass shower area!

We totally agree that The Junction is a great base when staying in Newcastle with most of its offerings 5 mins in any one directions. If you come back to play in our city a little more make sure you try a different room...no one is the same!

Overnight at the Junction Hotel was an absolute winner. The boutique accommodation was fabulous. Compact, well designed with quality fittings throughout. The bed was so comfortable, the bathroom clean, well laid out with a fabulous shower . Wander downstairs for a great meal, up the road to Bar Beach, down the road to the eclectic collection of shops and resturants in Cooks Hill.
Fabulous value for money at a top location.
Highly recommended.

Normally not one to stay in pub accommodation, this was a nice surprise. Room was large, bed was comfy and bathroom was modern and clean. The hotel is nice and modern, and this is reflected in the rooms. After hours access is good. Only downside is cleaning staff were knocking on our door right on 10am. I know they have a job to do but give us a couple of minutes grace!! Overall, a great place to stay for a short visit to Newcastle.

So happy that you decided to give us a try..The Junction Hotel has the heart of your traditional pub but has been given a first class make over that we know our guests love.

The accommodation does only have 9 boutique rooms, so we do have a very high turnover rate for bookings, apologies that you feel like you were being rushed. Will be sure to discuss this with our cleaners.

Hope to see you again soon.

Stayed here recently after a night out. Staff will go out of their way to help you out. Our bags were carried to our room for us and Lukas drove us to our concert. The attention to detail in the rooms is way beyond what you would expect for the price! Won't stay anywhere else from now.. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

The room was fantastic, in a great spot for where I wanted to be. The only negative I would have to say is the corners of the shower had pink and black mould growing on them. Would probably be good if they cleaned them properly. Other then that I had a fantastic time!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 9 and it was lovely and quiet. There was a bit of traffic noise but that never bot...
