1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I booked early in the morning and it took them until 7pm at night as I was walking in the door to tell me I was not able to stay there because of the covid outbreak in Sydney, even though I had not been to any of the classified hot zones at the time!

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
It was conveniently located for the purpose of my visit to Newcastle. It was clean and freshly renovated. Comfortable bed and having a sink in the room was good. On a fairly busy main road ... used to quiet location. NRL game meant a very full and noisy bar which remained so until midnight closing time. Would suit people of similar interests ... not my thing.
