Once again Troy and Fi at the Blackbutt Best Western looked after me on a Go Kart weekend at the Newcastle Kart Club. The rooms are always clean and tidy. The staff friendly and the Bistro is the hub of the local community with it always being very busy. You can book fro a party and can accommodate large groups... More

We booked last minute as family member had emergency surgery at John Hunter hospital. Staff were extremely helpful and let us into our room early as we had been up all night with no sleep. Rooms small but everything was clean and well presented. All the normal extras - coffee making facilities, bar fridge, iron and board etc. Ended up... More

Our house was being recarpeted and furniture removed so an alternative nights accommodation required. No shortage of options but where to stay. Knew a good band was playing at the blackbutt hotel and that their accommodation was relatively recently renovated and well priced made it a pragmatic decision. Booked over the phone got direction to the rear entry car park... More

There was a bit of a stuff around and as they got a new system my booking was deleted. To fix this problem they booked us another hotel which was more pricey but they insisted they pay the difference. Impressed with the service. Thank you, recommend this hotel :)

Has good dining and bar facilities and staff are very friendly. Rooms tidy and fresh, I will be back for my next business trip. It's very handy to Newcastle suburbs which is where I am working. Food at the restaurant was very good value.

Let me first say that I expected a motel, not a hotel, as I associate Best Western with motel type accommodation but this is definitely a hotel. My partner had to go to Newcastle Private Hospital for heart surgery so this motel was very close. I mentioned this when I booked but luckily I'm not superstitious as they gave me... More

Stay was horrible. Came back late at night to the hotel after a concert, only to find bugs everywhere. Running up the walls, a couple in the bed when we pulled back the sheets, behind furniture. Tried to ring the front desk, no answer, tried to walk down to the front desk, only to find it closed and the lights... More

I live in the next street but I stayed here because my floors were being sanded. I wondered if it would be good for overflow guests. It is part of the Blackbutt Hotel which is a popular family destination in this suburb of Newcastle. The restaurant has good specials and a children's playgym. It's about 10 minutes drive from the...

Stayed here for one night during January. It took a bit of finding as I did not realise it was a part of the hotel, ended up driving past it twice.

We stayed here for four nights recently, and the room, though small, was clean and neat. The hotel was really quiet, which was something I was concerned about with staying at a hotel/motel. It rained the whole time we were there, and the car park was outside at the back of the hotel, but that was something that could not... More
