My partner and I stayed here 3/12 and were pleasantly surprised with how clean, central and perfect it was for the price paid. Room was spacious though the bathroom was compact. The shower was still fantastic with an amazing rainmaker spout, so the space wasn't a concern. We also took advantage of the free bicycle hire and whilst it was... More

We stayed for one night in an economy room which was compact but perfect for an overnight stay. The room was spotlessly clean with good quality bed linen, and everything you could need, including toiletries. The staff were excellent and friendly. We ordered breakfast which was delivered to our room, was tasty and good value. We'll definitely stay again should... More

Dec 1: the vehicle entrance is behind the motel (don't confuse Railway Street with the one in nearby Newcastle). The motel has been refurbished, so the rooms are sparklingly clean and compactly designed with a brilliant wash basin/toilet design to save water. Bed is super comfy; sunrise creeps in through the top of the curtains so expect to wake early;... More

Only stayed one night, and staff were very friendly and check in was a breeze. We stayed in the economy queen room and it was very clean, comfortable and appeared recently refurbished. The aircon worked well. The photo of the room on their website is accurate and the rates seem reasonable.

Great motel. Will definitely return. Lovely people at reception. The room was great. Close to shops and town center of Newcastle. Entrance was from the rear so be aware when arriving as we had to do a loop.

We stayed overnight in a "family" room, and were happy with the room and facilities. The pool was nice (heated) and the kids enjoyed having a splash. The room was clean and comfortable, with a nicely renovated bathroom (great shower head!). Considering the busy location, the noise at night was very low and it is an easy walk to some... More

From the outside this motel does not appear much, its on a busy corner, and wedged between other business. But its surprising quiet, good value. The rooms are what you would expect for the price. They are not luxury, but not budget either. I have since booked in two more times since my initial stay. Its close to everything.

A welcome oasis for the weary traveller. We would definitely stay again. The room has been refurbished and is very comfortable. It has free Wi Fi plus Foxtel. Breakfast was given to us on a tray the night before so we can choose when we get up in the morning, not having to set an alarm is an advantage for... More

We stayed here the night prior to an Operation; The Receptionist was absolutely lovely, could not be more helpful or underdstanding. Room was good, all mod cons including a very state of the Ark Ipod Docking Station. When requested a microwave was supplied courtesy of the Management - Beds comfortable, etc highly recommend.

Had a double room, ground floor. Room immaculately presented. Shower awesome. Bed very comfortable and air con worked very well. Did not get the chance to use pool but looked nice. Only downside - parking - someone parked in our spot the whole time we were there.
