The rooms at this accommodation are smaller than tiny. There is very very little space for luggage storage. The floor space around the bed is almost non-existent. Very very low budget accommodation. Could not recommend this accommodation for more than one occupant, extremely small and cramped.

The room was very functional; and surprisingly spacious. We were 3 adults and one child. The bathroom was enormous! Clean, tidy and staff were friendly....although busy at certain times. The staff showed a personal care and attention to service needs as best they could and were very helpful with recommendations and tourist knowledge. Most guests are short one-night stopover and...

It's not the Hyatt, but you get what you pay for. My room was very clean and tidy. Bathroom and shower are a fiberglass room. Just like a setup you'd find on a large boat. It's fine to sleep there for a night or two and for the money it's great value.

Really affordable price for a two night stay, rooms were clean and comfortable, small but they're only designed for sleeping and showering in. Enjoyable stay with nice and friendly staff, quick check in and check out no hassles at all. Will come again if needing accommodation in Newcastle.

The after hours check in was fast and simple. The bed was comfortable and room was clean. The breakfast was good with plenty of variety. The room was a little bit Spartan but for a night to sleep over it can't be beat. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I have stayed at an Ibis Budget before and found the rooms to be naturally small and quite basic, but this found the rooms visibly dirty. Between the two single beds was what looked like weeks of built up dust, debri and who knows what. My pillow was in a disgraceful state and I preferred to use a clean towel!...

I stay with the Ibis Budget brand a lot and must say this location is running in last place. The room needed more cleaning and the staff were indifferent to say the least. WiFi was appalling (need to go to foyer). Got a different room type to what I booked online. There is an issue with a number of rooms...

The rooms were tiny. There was a strong musty smell of wet carpet throughout not just our room but most of the hotel. We saw a cleaner wearing HAZMAT gear in one of the rooms and my daughter found a small zip lock drug bag in the corridor, I told management but they didn't seem fazed. The toilet and shower...
