Overnight stay was good for value overall. Good size room with ensuite (pay more) bathroom a little small though. Bed is very comfy, clean room and new linen. Shared kitchenette is missing a bin and the sink area is awkwardly placed. Foxtel wasn't included on TV as advertised. Service from staff was awesome though and they allowed me to leave... More

My mother and I stayed here during a business trip. The price and location was ideal which was the main reason we booked. We spent alot of time running around with our luggage from Sydney to Newcastle that day and to walk into this establishment was a breath of fresh air and relaxation. The gentlemen whos name I have forgotten... More

Don't be fooled by the pictures - this place is a pub. That bathroom in the pictures is a shared bathroom in the corridor. However, if you're after a clean, cheap room, this place is ok. If you're travelling with your family, look elsewhere. Also, the kitchen closes early and there's nowhere else in walking distance to eat.

Hotel has a large seated and more causal eating area adjacent to the back bar (off Brunker Road). I usually go here for a quick lunch and a cold beer. It also does dinner in the evening but is busier then. Good range of meals at reasonable prices. Always has a range of lunch specials available. For a confirmed "meat... More

Had not been there for a long time so we decided to have Sunday lunch here as it used to be very good. Very busy mainly due to UFC but had no trouble in getting a seat for a meal. Meals were a mix of good to very average. Half the menu was not available which was a letdown, one... More

Had lunch here one Saturday. Was ok, perhaps a tad noisy for me, as most modern places with metal chairs and family areas are or can be. Fish and Chips was huge ....not 2 but 3 pieces of fish, chips salad. A bit overwhelming for me. Hate wasting food so would have preferred half as much at half the price.... More

A hotel above a pub, which means it can get a bit noisy from time to time. The room was super clean, fresh and spacious. We had one with shared bathroom which was ok, but not always super clean (mostly due to other guests than to bad cleaning). There is a small room with a fridge and micro and coffee... More
