Not prepossessing sitting in a rather dingy old port/ industrial area we find this hotel to be a gem for the quality of food and the exuberant hospitality of the staff. At first we thought the dining room looked a bit like an old fashioned railway waiting room but the the food appeared and we forgot about appearances. The waiters both morning and evening were very cheerful and energetic Aussie blokes with absolutely,no pretensions but amazing memories for your preferences. We tried a couple of their $12:00 specials (rump steak and John Dory fish) and they were amazingly good for the price.
Definitely a return if we ever get back to Newcastle.
