Great Location for downtown Newcastle, very central. Large clean rooms. Friendly staff and has a good restaurant. I had a $20 special dinner and it was delicious!! I was in town for a seminar at another hotel and was able to leave my car at the Clarendon and walk the 2 blocks to my course. The only little issue is...

Rude from the minute we walked in. The rooms were nice and the sofa bed was reasonably comfy. However, be wary as 2 of the bathrooms in the rooms our group stayed in did not drain properly.

I stayed for one night on business. The room was recently refurbished and in lovely condition but the air conditioning was noisy and the parking was not below the hotel but around the corner. Very central, nice staff.

The place was nothing fancy and I just don't understand why the staff thought they...

We had a twin room at the front of the building which was very quiet and had a small balcony overlooking Hunter Street. It is within easy walking distance of several nice restaurants and has a reasonable menu of its own.

I don't like to leave reviews but want to do this more as an opportunity for the business to improve. The room I stayed in overlooked the beer garden out the back. I requested a non smoking room as I had my two children staying with us but were given a smoking room. No dramas, not the end of the...

From first arriving to leaving the staff members was very nice to deal with. The room was great and has a modern look. Clean and a comfortable bed. Close to all the restaurants. Would recommend this place.
