Positive Reviews

Welcoming staff

Guests say that they receive a genuinely warm welcome from the staff at the motel and are made to feel at home. From checking in to checking out the staff cannot do more to be helpful, being happy to assist with any requests and offer up their local knowledge.

Clean and cosy rooms

You can expect to have everything you need for a comfortable stay at this motel. Rooms are well-presented, spacious and spotlessly clean and tidy. They have comfortable beds with fresh bedlinens, hot showers and plenty of tea and coffee.

Well located

Guests say that the property is in a great location, being close to shopping centres, sporting clubs and venues. It is easy to get around with free parking on-site, Newcastle Harbour being a 15-minute drive away, and the train station just a few minutes' walk away.

Negative Reviews

Décor is not the most up to date

If you are looking for sleek, contemporary style then this property may not be to your taste. Some guests thought that the décor was out of date. However, this was not found to be a real issue as the hotel is very clean and well maintained.

Some problems with the Wi-Fi

While guests appreciate that the Wi-Fi is free, some guests had difficulty connecting to it. It was also noted that there is a limit to the amount of internet usage each room can have and so it would run out after a while.

Not suitable for party animals

The area around the hotel is quiet on an evening, with guests reporting that bars for example would close quite early. As such, guests looking for evening entertainment nearby have ended up disappointed.
