The Clarendon Hotel
Ranked #5 of 24 Hotels in Newcastle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2013

We stayed for a night at the Clarendon hotel and wish we could have stayed longer! The room was excellent could not fault it in anyway. The receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly when we were checking in and out. The best part has to be the restaurant and bar which hosts great entertainment nights such as a trivia night which we had great fun at and was free to join. The food was really superb and extremely great value for money - thanks to the excellent chef Khynan! The waitstaff, in particular darren and kodie, were very attentive and went out of their way to help us, very friendly! We would definitely recommend staying here if you ever visit newcastle, great location, staff and value as well as a private underground car park which is extremely handy as parking can sometimes be difficult to find. We will be back soon!

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony are very scenic!

Thank you Sarah for such positive feedback! We really do pride ourselves on having some of the friendliest staff in Newcastle. Your compliments have been passed on to the wonderful staff you mentioned. It’s great to hear that you also got to join in on our regular Thursday night Trivia game. It is always lots of fun and very popular with the locals. Thanks again, we look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Newcastle.

I travel a lot and seldom I find staff members as dedicated! Loved the nice dinner, the great service. My room was a good size and the bed very comfortable. Only downer was the car park as I travel business with a lot of luggage. Overall I enjoyed my stay and the friendly atmosphere - and yes, I would book it again:-)

Hi there,

Our whole team would love to thank you for taking the time to review us and especially for your comments on our service. We really do pride ourselves on being able to provide efficient service with a smile! It's great that you also got a chance to enjoy our restaurant while you were here.

We understand that the car park is a little far for guests with a lot of luggage, in the future you are more than welcome to temporarily park in our loading dock while you unload your luggage. A staff member would be happy to help if required. Our reception staff can organise this for you.

Thanks again, we hope to see you again soon!

This room was neat, tidy, luxurious and crisp. I will definitely be staying here again. The room we had was facing the main street, which I personally loved, but some may rather a quieter room. The refurbishments where modern and interesting. Staff where beyond available and helpful

We had the pleasure of 8 nights recently. Location: excellent. Staff: very efficient, friendly and committed to their jobs and worked as a team. Hotel: exceptionally clean, with very nice newly renovated rooms. Meals: Fabulous breakfasts, great weekly specials and other meals great - very good value. 5 min. stroll to wharf for alternative restaurant meals, and site seeing. Nearby mall, picture theatre. Everything you wanted. We were extremely pleased we booked here, as it was exactly what we wanted. Staff went out of their way to interact. They really were great. For those that have left comments on the music - GET A LIFE. We were warned and the nights were NOT late. A Hotel that appears is a great spot for regulars as well. Thanks guys Wilma & Graham Trounce. Vic.

Room Tip: Just book. It is a Hotel - but offers plenty

I stayed at the Clarendon for one night at the end of the June. The rooms are very modern and very comfortable. The bathrooms are enormous!! The location of the hotel is excellent too and you won't find a more central location than the Clarendon. Reception staff are very friendly and efficient.

We chose to stay at the Clarendon based on a recommendation from a friend who lives in Newcastle. We've never stayed in a pub before so we were not sure what to expect. They had good rates on a last minute site so we decided to give it a go. And weren't we pleasantly surprised! Yes, it is a pub downstairs but with a classy Art Deco style bar and lovely restaurant. The whole place has heaps of character and the staff were extremely friendly and well trained. When we checked-in we were given an upgrade straight away which was surprising as often when you book on a last minute site you are not given these kinds of perks. The room itself was stylish and comfortable and the bed was incredible! Loved the linen & the shower head! Free wi-fi was another great bonus - apparently this is standard. Will definitely stay again when next in Newcastle and recommend it to friends who have been a little wary of pub accommodation. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: You can request a balcony for no extra charge.

We stayed here for one night mid-week. The location is great and is close to Queens Wharfe and good restaurants. The room was very spacious, modern, quiet and spotless. Huge shower with great, fast hot water. Special shout-out to the staff at reception. So helpful and friendly. Will certainly stay here again if we return to Newcastle.
