Smart, well designed hotel. Spacious room divided into sitting and sleeping areas overlooking a harbour with interesting activity. Staff unfailingly politely helpful. Great location for visiting Newcastle with a harbour side promenade giving car free access to some 20 or so different places to eat along Honeysuckle, and within a short walking distance Darby Street with twice as many restaurants...

Great location overlooking the harbour service was poor when it takes over 15 min to serve a wine its poor. The meal was good but no way was near enough to be great, the chef obviously thinks his better than what he is

Asked for a quiet room and got the ground floor room 025. It was comfortable and clean. Nothing new about this place but the rate was fair and the room worked well. Interesting to be woken by tugboats during the night! The location is very good for food and access to the city center. I will be back there again...

Thank you for your review of our hotel. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

This is one of the upper market hotels in Newcastle, located in a convenient spot on the water's edge. The hotel has its good points: the room doors don't slam like they do in other hotels, the windows seal well, the air con is quiet, and the bedroom is positioned nicely around a corner separated by heavy doors.

Preferred place to stay when in business. Located on water front with extensive walk/jog/bike ride opportunities. Many restaurants in walking distance. Rooms are clean, fresh, modern & comfortable. 24hr valet parking is a dream when working late or starting early. Staff are friendly & efficient. Windows open (yippee ) for lovely fresh sea breeze.
