With all the consistent positive reviews, the accommodation and service was disappointing. The room small, the floor noisy with construction work, power outages, and terribly slow WFI. I'm using my own data to write this review because I'm so disappointed in the service and accommodation. I would not recommend a stay here unless there was no alternate accommodation in Newcastle....

Despite the heritage facade, the rooms inside the hotel are modern and renovated. We were very comfortable here for two nights and the location was very central to beaches and cafes. Only downside was metred street parking only (free after 5pm) which did mean we were moving the car a bit and constantly renewing our parking tickets (2hr and 4hr...

This hotel was just OK I'm afraid. It is currently being renovated so there were unfinished sections we had to walk past to get to our room. The room itself was nice, with a big bed and newly renovated bathroom (which did need some extra work to finish). We went out to a wedding, leaving the AC on. When we...

I stayed here for one night on my way down to Sydney. I really wanted to experience one of these old inn hotels I saw all over Australia. It was reasonably priced and the room was great, very comfortable bed, modern en-suite bathroom. I also had dinner here and it was probably the best fish and chips I had in...

My girlfriend and I went out to enjoy the underground jazz night. Beers were well priced with fun and bubbly bartenders. Helpful and happy people! Jazz was excellent and a very happy and relaxed environment. Good times!

Stayed for a couple of nights. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room nice and clean. Good location in quiet part of town near beach and 15 min walk to Queens Wharf. You do have to climb a staircase with your luggage so may not suit some people. Enjoyed our stay but found the mattress too hard (room 5) and only...

Stayed for two nights (Fri and Sat) at the Grand Hotel. Great location, really close to the bus transfer from Hamilton Station, and just a few minutes walk down to beautiful Newcastle Beach. Stayed in a top floor room - it was super lovely! Clean, fresh, bright, airy, sunny... no balcony up on the top floor, but the sunshine flooding...

If you're looking for a budget stay in Newcastle and a quiet place, you should definitely choose the Grand Hotel. Not a busy street, not many cafes and bars there so there are no crowds, however, it's a short walk to the esplanade with plenty of cafes and bars. The room was clean and nice, very good value for money.

Thank Unmean
