Stayed with Wife, son 12, daughter 8 in Jan2017. Great location, close to beaches, good walking tracks (breakwall) and playing fields below. Balcony overlooks parks and river. Was great watching tugs bring big ships in/out of river.
Unit is a bit older but renovated and is clean and comfortable. Has full kitchen, and lounge room.
Modern TV and wifi in room. Accessed Netflix easy on TV, and they also have a large DVD collection to borrow from if required.
Easy to find and get to, and in walking distance to honeysuckle restaurants.
Manager was responsive and good to deal with.
As Newcastle is large and spread out, you have to drive most places anyway, so may have somewhere with a view and be a bit quieter than other areas.
There are a few stairs to deal with to get from car park to unit, but not too hard to manage.
Would recommend this apartment to families.
