Beautiful location be sure to ask for a room with water views. Great apartment and well stocked in the kitchen. Nice and clean as well. The staff were very friendly and we recommend these apartments for couples or families.

Stayed here 2 nights while attending a Wedding in Toronto. We had requested a quiet room. Our 1 Bedroom Apartment looked out onto a side street and was very quiet. The balcony had a table and chairs. The apartment was cosy and we loved the delicious complimentary ginger crisp biscuits to accompany the tea and coffee amenities provided! Everything was...

Stayed here one night when we were in the area visiting friends. The Brighton is well-situated - very handy to two supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and Lake Macquarie. The location also allows easy access to other areas of the region. We were greeted warmly and found all the staff we dealt with to be friendly and helpful. We had interconnecting rooms...

Needed to be in area for relatives, but not to impose on them. This is a very clean, well located option. Only two floors, so not huge - some rooms look over the lake others the carpark.

This was our second stay here and we would come back again. The Brighton should be so happy to have both Jack and Shannon working for them - amazing service from both of them. The rooms are spacious and clean although you can here traffic if you are a light sleeper. Great walking distance to restaurants and the main street.

Stayed at The Brighton on business. I travelled down on Sunday and received a phone call regarding how to retrieve my key. Reception closes at a certain time. I did ask for a microwave in my Studio that was booked for me. No problems there!! Bed was comfortable, room and bathroom was clean. Decor is a bit dated, but everything...

I remember this being built many years ago and thought it would be good to stay there if the opportunity came. I did the other week and was disappointed at the lack of maintenance in the apartment. I did mention it on vacating, but felt it was not taken seriously

Shannon P, Manager at The Brighton, responded to this review

Hi John, Thankyou for your review of The Brighton. The Brighton was built in 2002 and you are somewhat correct in saying that certain areas could use some TLC. We are currently replacing beds with Commercial King Coil Mattresses and bases. We also plan on replacing the curtains, carpets and updating the kitchens and bathrooms.
