On a business trip down from Sydney I was recommended this place after my first option of accommodation was booked out. I wasn't keen on the setting is it fringes an industrial estate. As it happens this is a benefit because after five it's very quiet. Additionally it's only a 10 minute drive back into Newcastle if you have to...

Not far to all Newcastle has to offer. Good clean rooms and a tea and coffee making area at end of hall with fridge. Very friendly staff and great bistro. Free bottle of wine with room. Had a great night with trivia and drinks with the locals until close. My second stay and will be back.

Very nice room in an old pub that doesn't look much from the outside. Don't judge a book by its cover. Brand new rooms inside, quality food and well priced beer. Perfect weekend stay. Good job. Could use more parking though

Thank you for sharing your review. We do have a carpark but it does tend to get busy during the evening with locals in for dinner, however there is ample off street parking that is not timed. Always a great weekend here at the Sunnyside when the footy is on, hope to see you again soon. The Sunny

The rooms have recently been refurbished and were really nicely done. The linen was classy and the bathroom was small but very nice. It certainly was far superior to what I expected of pub accommodation. When I enquired the staff member offered to show me the room to help me decide if it was "up to my standard"! I expected...

The staff there are very inviting and bright. The rooms are very well looked after, neat and spacious (really wasn't expecting anything like that for the price). Food was incredible. Would recommend the chocolate brownie for desert! Would be great if there was a mini fridge in the rooms but overall 10/10. The location is perfect - 5-9 minutes from...

I was looking for somewhere to stay close to the entertainment centre for one night as we were going to a concert there, and found the Sunnyside Tavern which was great as it was close enough to walk.

Looking for a Cold Beer and Clean tidy Pub Accommodation in Newcastle, then Sunnyside is perfect. We were going to the football at Hunter Stadium and the pub is a short walk from the ground. Thanks Roley and rest of the team
