Very simple but convenient accommodation. we were attending a family funeral so was not a pleasure trip. But would stay there next time to visiting family. Convenience store and bottle shop next door. Restaurant down stairs had simple decor but the food was well presented and fresh we had lunch and dinner there it was that good.

It's a great little place to stay, cheap as chips. Quite basic, was clean and friendly. Does not have a mirror in the bedroom only in bathroom, it's only a small thing but they could pop one somewhere. Bonus that they have good size mugs to make a cuppa not tiny cups.

Didn't know this place was above a restaurant and bar. I checked in late at night so it was good that they have a 24 hour check in time which was perfect for me. I stayed 3 nights on Queens bday long weekend. Checked in on the friday night and was hoping for a early night after a long congested...

Basic hotel and basic rooms. Very impressed with how friendly the staff! Just stayed for one night and I was happy with my stay. Rooms are much nice than the impression you get from outside and very reasonably priced.

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...

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...

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...

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...
