We arrived at night and we're welcomed by a friendly lady. She helped me with a fresh cup of coffee with no charge. Also there was a fridge in the room and that's very welcome when it's 30 degrees outside. The Internet was perfect, fast and free. A very good deal for AUD 69,-

Our last hotel on our holiday and it was a shocker. While it is well located and inexpensive it didn't seem worth it. Got into the hallway towards our room; carpets were stained and gross as were the walls. The room itself was very small with only a cubicle style bathroom (sink is actually in the room itself) but was...

The motel is on a busy highway, so if your a light sleeper - think again! Motel is easy to find, and easy to get into Newcastle. Room is very basic, bathroom was like a cruise ship (P&O), only 2 pillows, no wardrobe and no phone, but other then that it was clean.

Although budget the room was very small, no where to hang clothes etc in bathroom. Clean room but bunk bed made head room limited. Staff were friendly. Location was easily accessible for a quick stop over but due to room size will not be back.

Great location and spotlessly clean and comfortable. Our Queen room was a little cramped but had all the facilities we needed and at the price a real bargain. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast more than adequate. Free parking is a bonus and it is very convenient to both major hospitals for visiting ill family members.

It was small but not cramped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Colour TV, tea & coffee making facilities and a small fridge. Reception staff were very helpful and...

Very cheap but for what you get it's a real bargain. It's bare bones but clean and comfortable if you need a quick over-nighter. The rooms are small but manage to include a queen size bed, tv, kettle, sink & bar fridge. The ensuite is TINY but includes a shower and toilet in one space - near impossible for big...

If the only other option is to sleep in your car then this place will suffice !! I can understand that these alleged ibis budget ( lightly refurbished)formula one properties are only 2 stars but at least keep the inside clean !!! Yuck bed sheets were sandy , fridge contained a pungent smell and was stained from the outside in...

At these hotels you get what you pay, they are comfortable enough and have the basic amenities you need, there is nothing flash about them, so if thats what you need to come expecting. could do with a bit of TLC, quite some way from Newcastle CBD but does have shops and eateries in walking distance.

Booked late and got a Fantastic Room Rate, Room was perfect for a Traveller with Tea and Coffee Facilities in the room, Milk and a Bar Fridge supplied. Bed was comfortable and everything worked well. They have great facilities for a late check in and staff were lovely. WiFi was good and easy to use. Will stay here again.
