We travelled from 5 hours away and requested if we can leave some food we have in our car in our room fridge earlier than check in time so that it doesn’t get spoiled. Manager gladly obliged. Room is clean, got all the necessities you need for a family of 4 it is spacious enough for our needs. Toilet/shower clean which is always a positive. Bed is comfortable and pillows nice and soft. Parking is free and the nearest convenience store is a 24/7 7 eleven! So handy, literally just a few steps. By car 15-20 mins top to go around sights of Newcastle (the one we visited anyway) like the famius Darby street, Newcastle beach and Fort Scratchley! Would definitely be back and recommend.
Dropping children off to the university so booked a night here. It’s a fantastic location for the uni, as take 7 minutes in the car. Also a 15 minute drive gets you to Honeysuckle and the beaches. It’s clean, spacious and well equipped with essentials for takeaway and washing (if you forgot) and tea/coffee too. Local coffee shop is 200mts away😁 Bathroom was smart and spacious and good storage for bags and cases in the room. Staff friendly and helpful too. You can park out the front of the unit’s or drive and park underneath with cover, but it’s a bit tight with bigger cars.
We stayed at the Citigate motel for 1 night to break up a 10 hour drive. We had never stayed in Newcastle and we were not familiar with the surrounds. This motel is too far to walk to the main action near the beach. The area didn't feel that safe to walk around so a car is definitely needed. The room was dated and clean enough but did smell a bit musty. We wanted to eat in after a long day but the room was stuffy and the plates and cups didn't look clean. Netflix was an unexpected bonus and the bathroom looked clean. Check in and check out was easy but we must have missed the super friendly service other reviews write of. Overall good for the price per night and ok for 1 night stopover but keep expectations low.
Great ! Management very friendly..NIce and clean . Value for money. Good Location. close to almost everything. Next to 7-Eleven which is very convenient. Though there is no swimming pool , which may add in future would make it more interesting!!
It was a last minute booking for a family of 3 on 22.1.21 (Room 4) for 1 day only and I wish I could stay much longer at this motel. Great value for money, very clean and a very friendly owner operated hotel. Hotel with big rooms, Aircon, Mini kitchen, WIFI and Netflix etc. Highly recommend.
