:) perfect very clean and tidy close to Westfield Kotara, John Hunter Hospital. The Restaurant down stairs is fantastic great food defiantly worth going back. The rooms are a little small but are clean and tidy and being on a busy main road it's not noisy at all

I booked this accommodation through Qantas website. I don't know what went wrong, but my booking was made for week before. So, obviously, when I arrived I did not have any booking. After a long drive it was not exactly the news I wanted to hear. Plus it was some mess with credit card payments. I was very stressed out....

Originally there was a mix up with the booking but that was soon sorted out, much to the embarrassment of the person on duty in reception.The room was great, well laid out, bed comfortable and shower good. There was a lift so you didn't have to trudge up stairs to the rooms and secure parking at the back which could...

This was our second stay and again we were very happy with our choice. With free, secure parking and a pleasant area for walks, the Inn is a friendly place for drinks, coffee or a meal. It is located in a small shopping precinct which is always handy. Because it was a weekend we asked for a quiet room and...

So we booked online the general area we needed to stay a couple of days. Pulling up our hearts sank because it is accommodation over a pub and we've had some horror experiences. But this was so much better than expected. Layout and furnishings modern and classy. Bed comfy, bathroom as big as you need. Great shower pressure. Everything worked,...

Myself and my family attended this pub for lunch on Sunday 18th Jan and this is only a rating of the resturant and not the hotel. I ordered the calamari and chips for my 5 year old, the Chicken Parmigana with chips and veg for myself and my partner had the pumpkin and proscuitto pizza. They were prompt with the...

We stayed here and dined in the restaurant the rooms were clean and amenities were perfect the bed was very comfortable. The food from the restaurant was fabulous and very large servings. There was a great band on too so it was a one stop night out for us.

Was a bit concerned about sleeping above a pub which advertised live music at the weekend, but thankfully we had a room at the farthest end from the bar and we heard nothing. Staff were pleasant and attentive - room was clean, quiet, secure and offered very good value for money.

All staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. Rooms are tidy, clean and very comfortable. Great central location, close to all shopping centers with westfield Kotara just up the road and not too far to the beach. Great atmosphere in the bar and great food.

I was driving interstate and booked a night here where I could rest up before driving off to Melbourne the next day. I had my life packed into my car and they let me park my car safely in the staff part overnight, which was great! I found all staff very friendly, the room was modern, clean and tidy! Ordered...
