We were looking for somewhere to stay near Mayfield and were told about "Sunnyside." Who would have thought, we were glad we stayed there. It's easy to get to from the expressway and in the middle of the sports / entertainment precinct. The rooms were larger than expected and were very well presented, with a great ensuite. The area is...

We stayed just overnight but it was very good. The staff is very friendly, the room was nice and clean .

The cleanest most modern pub room I have ever stayed in, was recommended by a friend as we'll be coming down to watch son play for Knights and can't recommend it highly enough. Great facilities, great food, great service.

Nice clean small room with a very high ceiling. Train tracks out our window but did not hear any trains. Good food but a little overpriced. We could not find anthying interesting or any restaurant within walking distance.

This hotel is in an ideal position for the Entertainment centre. They run a courtesy bus service to and from the venue. The rooms are really comfortable with a kingsize bed and ensuite.A powerpoint in the ensuite would be beneficial and a small jug in the room to make a cuppa would save a walk to the end of the...

It is a long way upstairs, especially if you carry Luggage (but the Staff is very friendly and helpful, I'm sure they would assist). The Room was fresh, clean and very comfy. The en-suite was spacious and modern. For dinner we went downstairs and had a tasty meal in the Hotels own Restaurant.

As stated above, but far from the truth. Could not have had abetter room and the staff were fantastic especially Georgia and Manager. Close enough to Newcastle and only $10 in uber. Good feed as well!

We stayed here as we just needed a room to shower in and get dressed and sleep as we were watching a show at the Civic Theater for the evening. On arrival we were met by a friendly staff member and given all instructions regarding pin codes for the accommodation upstairs and personally shown to our room. The room was...

Appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We are a great local pub with old fashioned pub values... which means good personal service, great food and of course cold beer. Hope to see you again soon.
