Positive Reviews

Close to the city

One of the big advantages here is that Charlestown and all of its amenities is within walking distance of the hotel. Newcastle is not that far away either and is located just a short drive away. The hotel is easy to find as it is situated just off the main road yet it is surprisingly quiet and not blighted by road noise.

Home from home

Guests feel like this property is like a home from home and many return time and time again to be greeted like an old friend. The staff here are very warm and friendly and offer a truly personalised service; they simply cannot do enough for you. The rooms are quite spacious yet feel cosy and the beds are very comfortable. Housekeeping do a good job of keeping the rooms clean and the breakfast is offer is of a high quality.

Hotel facilities

The hotel boasts its own car park, a fitness centre and an on-site swimming pool.

Negative Reviews

Noise travels

One of the things that need improving here is the soundproofing. If you have a family with small children next to you or are cursed with noisy neighbours the sound will travel right into your room with you.

Bar closes early

There have been complaints that the on-site bar closes too early, especially on a weekend, and the hours could be extended slightly without giving rise to antisocial behaviour.

Food is expensive

If you are looking for somewhere that you can grab a cheap place to eat then the on-site restaurant might not be the best place for you to dine. The food is good quality but the prices reflect this. If you are trying to stick to a budget you may wish to venture out of the hotel and find a local eatery for half the price.
