The Hotel is excellent for the price and our room (5506) could not be faulted (until we tried to go to sleep). The room is modern and very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Parking is easy and accessible. Having the club adjacent to the Hotel is very convenient as the club offers value for money meals, a...

An older hotel that has had an interior facelift. Next door to a football club if that's your thing. If you're staying for a while, there is a laundry which is helpful. I appreciated being able to get my own ice from a dispenser on the ground floor. Pretty conveniently located whether you're airport or city bound. For entertainment or...

The hotel is clean and services are good. Eating options were limited as we were there during the Christmas time.Plenty of open and covered parking. CBD is quiet far so only suitable for people travelling by car.

We booked a same day room on 29/12 after finding that our previously booked accommodation had double booked our room. Hubby, miss 5 and i arrived at around 9pm after a 12hr drive and were very pleased to find we'd been given a 1 bedroom spa studio. It was the most comfortable bed and pillows I've had in a hotel...

The Gateway Inn is one of the best hotels in Newcastle. Located about halfway between CBD and the Airport, it is ideal as a stayover location. The rooms are spacious, great sized bathroom and the double shower is a must have experience. With the Wests club right next door, its a stroll for a few quiet cool drinks and a...

Trip to Newcastle for a family event the Gateway Inn was perfect for our needs, the apartments were large and comfortable . Location not scenic but easy drive to the airport and into the beach. Staff friendly and helpful. This hotel is connected to a football club with club restaurants and entertainment .

Late check in with friendly staff. Easy to find and well located. Secured parking on site at the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and modern. 10am check out was a little hard to manage as most places offer an 11am check out. Overall a very happy stay. Try the Brazilian Restaurant up on level 6, certainly worth the effort.

Not bad all things considered. Attached to a club so food and gym readily available, off street parking and nice facilities within room make this a more than acceptable overnight spot for those visiting on business. Had room facing rear so sound from busy road frontage wasn't issue.
