The motel was well priced and the stay was comfortable with good rooms, easy check in and out, good facilities and very good meals. Mini bar items and some drinks at the bar over priced. The motel was well place near Charlestown shopping precinct and short drive to City of Newcastle and beaches.

I've only previously stayed in the new rooms here until this stay. The old rooms are definitely not as nice as the newer ones and there is no way I can see to only book the new rooms. Very disappointing.

Good hotel room, served our needs - beds a shower and place to leave gear while we were out and about. Daily clean and tidy, as expected. Pool was handy as well. Shame they jack up the prices so much for peak events, but that's supply and demand.

I regularly stay here for work, usually 1-2 nights and its perfect. Clean, quiet rooms with the same high level standard every time. Service is always very friendly and professional and can go the extra mile if required. (I have never needed) Pool, gym and room service available. Close to Charlestown square. I will continue to stay in future visits...

I stayed for 1 night on a short business trip. The room was a queen sized room with a balcony overlooking tree top bushland - very peaceful. I was very happy with the room. However, the walls are not completely soundproof. I could hear other rooms TV's and talking. My room faced the lobby, which I later figured out to...

I've enjoyed several stays at the Apollo Charlestown over the last few years and found it's in a great location for my business activities and also for it's reasonably close proximity to Newcastle and nearby shops and beaches. This time around I had a lovely upstairs room with a private balcony that faced the rear of the hotel (poolside). The...
