Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable, but can be a little noisy if facing the main road. There is plenty of parking and most points of interest are only a short drive away. My only complaint would be the lack of restaurants within walking distance.

Good price and location. Bit noisy as on a busy corner; my window did not seal properly (worn out locking mechanism) so noise entered the room; as did smoke from the smokers below. Room basic but fine. Cleaning hit and miss; dead cockroach, old battery and cigarette butt behind the door of the room. QA not what it could be....

I was glad to find accommodation here at the time of the Rolling Stones Hunter gig, however our stay was disappointing from start to finish. When we arrived just prior to check-in opening at midday, there was nobody in attendance at about 5 minutes to midday and the automated check-in was not functional, despite the large queue of people forming...

Good place for 1 night if your on a tight budget. Rooms are super small but modern and clean. Close to town and we felt safe. Washroom was almost laughable as it feels like a port a loo toilet/shower. Very mini but the bed was comfortable.

Stayed in room 123. I could small cigarette smoke in our room at 10:00 pm. It was thick. I went out into the hall and found visitors holding the EMERGENCY EXIT DOOR open, and they were smoking just outside. I asked them to stop and threatened to shut them outside. They stopped smoking and came inside immediately. Same thing at...

Staff were pleasant and friendly, but the room was not! Very basic I could cope with but dirty and finding what appeared to be blood stained pillow and linen was not. Did I mention the noise? Maybe I was just unlucky but I won't be returning to find out. Sorry Ibis but you usually do much better.

I booked this hotel for one night as visiting the Hunter Valley on a wine tasting tour. Found it on Booking.com and was perfect for us and it was cheap, good location and was an easy meeting place for the tour guide. The staff were very friendly on arrival and the room was a little small but very clean and...

We stayed here due to a long drive during the day & wanted somewhere not too far into Newcastle and relatively cheap. It was cheap that's for sure and this is where you rate based on value for money or just the overall quality. Value for money was kind of there but not quality. I've slept in several minesite dongas...

I initially booked this hotel for 28 days on a work assignment. I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and friendly hosts. The room is quite small, but with a few alterations I am comfortable. It is in Wallsend a very friendly suburb, with a bit of a rural feel. Really close to shops and gym. All the essentials. Would recommend...
