When we first arrived outside, it was where are we and what have I done, this looks awful and in the middle of nowhere there was pressure from my partner to just drive away and findsomething else. Thankfully I said no lets look inside. I am glad I did It was very comfortable and quiet and we enjoyed our weekend...

I travel regularly to the Hamilton area to visit friends, and I haven't stayed anywhere other than here since I found Central Apartments. (Except for once when they were booked out.) The suites are spacious and comfortable, and while I generally only stay for a weekend they would be roomy enough to stay/work for a month. I can see why...

I have read the negative comments here and can't really understand those that have left them. I stayed with my partner and we particularly needed accommodation in the Islington or Hamilton area. The location was perfect for us. Yes, it does appear to be an old warehouse or similar, converted to modern apartments - but who cares what the outside...

I read the negative comments with some concern but all of these were alleviated when I checked in. Staff are friendly, helpful and professional in a casual, family way. I organised everything via email and phone and everything went smoothly - i didn't need to 'see' the staff. Getting in and out was no problem. Room was clean, tidy and...

I too feel like I have been let down by this place. It is no where near the beach and is in a very dodgy part of town. We saw the place and the "free off street parking" phoned our business clients that we were meeting with over the next 4 days and they advised to find other accommodation. so...

After we booked, friends said the area was BAD but the booking did not allow for cancellation. The area around is very rundown and questionable but the apartments are nice inside. The neighbours are anti and object to the parking. The photo of the "patio" is really a con as it is just astrip of tarmac some 3 metres wide...

We booked this "hotel" for 8 nights. The day after booking, an ominous email arrived saying we were booked but the terms were strict, ie no cancellations unless they can sell the room on! On arrival it was clear to see why! This was not really a hotel, it looks like an old factory/office unit in an indistrial unit that...

Thank you for your feed back. Newcastle residents generally have an out dated perspective on this old inner suburb. Statistically, it does not live up to its negative tag. Like many of our inner city areas it is slowly under going gentrification. There is ample free parking within 50 meters without taking up parking spaces outside residential houses. We are...
