Bed was very nice. Plenty of space in the room. Could have used a bit more desk space. The pressure of the shower was not very high, was a little disappointed with that. The buffet breakfast was very good.

Spent 3 night at this hotel while in Newcastle. Located close to great shopping and a short drive to great restaurants in Newcastle. Beautifully clean, friendly staff and lovely views. We have tried the in house restaurant previously and it has always been lovely. Would recommend to anyone wanting to relax and unwind after shopping, sightseeing and eating.

Having stayed at Best Western on our trip and found 2 out of three very good, we decided on the Apollo International after reading the reviews. Very clean and very open reception, which was matched by our spacious room on level three. A balcony at the rear overlooked a quiet wooded area which was pleasant to relax and view after...

Rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable. Unfortunately the older section of the building can be a little noisy, but if you are fortunate enough to stay in the newly completed extension than a great nights rest is assured. Extremely clean, excellent service and very well located. I stay in many hotels throughout NSW for work and can honestly say...
