Guests are happy with the location of the hotel, describing how it is within easy walking distance of shopping, dining and entertainment. The Newcastle CBD is reasonably close, as are the beach and cultural attractions. Guests mention that the staff gave lifts to local venues. This is not guaranteed but is perhaps testament to the great service on offer here.

Negative Reviews

Loud music

Guests occasionally mention that they were disturbed by loud music in the bar. Whether this is an issue during your stay largely depends on where your room is situated and whether you plan to join in the fun. Better soundproofing could be needed.

Occasional parking issues

Reviews suggest that the secure parking on offer at the hotel is fairly limited, so you may need to arrive early to guarantee a space. Alternative public parking seems to be a little further from the hotel than guests would like.

Busy restaurant

Although many guests liked the ambience and atmosphere of the restaurant, a few found it a little too busy for their tastes. Several guests mention that the popularity of the Brasserie means there are occasional delays when trying to get breakfast.
