Good for pub AccommodationPosted 25/08/2013
Pros: On the plus. Amazing shower and bathroom.
Location: walking distance to cinema's. in the heart of the city.
I stayed three days for business. Way too small. Too inconvenient to park. They should state that it's in a pub!The lights required staff to work out how to use them. Next time I want to stay in a hotel I'll stay in an hotel not a pub.

A Pleasant StayPosted 22/04/2013 on Hotels.com
Even though the Clarendon is situation above a noisy, buzzy bar once we were were up in our room it was super quiet and peaceful. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating without being fake and the room was well appointed and clean. Mini bar prices were also reasonable. I'd recommend staying at the Clarendon which is well situated between Newcastle town center and not too far from Cooks Hill and Darby Street.

Surprisingly big rooms for pub accommodation. The staff are fantastic. Some nights the music from the bar can be a little loud. Overall one if th best pubs I've ever stayed in.

Nice hotel close to harbourPosted 27/10/2012 on Hotels.com
We had a really nice and big room for one night. We would come back again. We forgot 6 shirt in the room and we recognised only 300 km away. The staff of this hotel send us the 6 shirts by Australian Post to one of our next hotels in Melbourne. Really great service!!! Thanks again.

ABSOLUTELY NOT 4 STARS - TRY 2 IF YOU ARE LUCKY!Posted 21/04/2012 on Hotels.com
The description of the hotel on the site was nothing like the hotel. It's an old run down pub. Not a hotel. You have to walk through the acrid beer smelling pub to a little nook which is supposed to be reception and the lady who's just poured the beers for the drinkers is the one to eventually comes to check you in. Sorry, we ended up losing our money and checked in at the Crown Plaza Newcastle which was 4 1/2 stars and you could not even compare it with that pub. I could go on but I'm too annoyed at the misdescription of the place which ended up making us lose our money!

The Clarendon Hotel Newcastle - City ConveniencePosted 23/11/2011 on Hotels.com
The rooms are really nice, roomy, good quality fittings, clean and well decored. Convenient to the city with a great bar downstairs and a nice eatery. The place just has a great atmosphere and is surprisingly quiet in the room. I would definately recommend to anyone who is after a place to stay in the city.
