Positive Reviews

Excellent sleeping facilities!

Most of the positive reviews pertained to the overall level of comfort brought by the beds. Guests commended the clean, soft, and highly comfortable mattresses, pillows, and linens which was one of the main reasons why they enjoyed staying at the motel.

Unique water-saving toilet design

Aside from the abundance of hot water and the lovely shower design, guests are also deeply satisfied with the water saving technique that uses the water used at the sink area to flush the toilet. It does not just offer unique bathroom design but also helps the environment which is highly impressive.

Convenient property location in Newcastle

Guests enjoyed travelling within the area due to the hotel's close proximity to the Entertainment centre, Merewether Beach, and shopping centres. Moreover, different dining options are also within close proximity.

Negative Reviews

Poor in-room lighting condition

Rooms were quite dark due to the poor lighting condition so guests had difficulty functioning normally especially on the coffee and taking making areas. Some guests even had accidents, since the rooms were so dark and they couldn't find the light switch. Furthermore, the overhead light was poorly lit.

Disturbing traffic noise

The loud traffic or road noise has been very annoying for previous guests especially when windows were open. The rooms and windows need double-glazing according to most guests so they can sleep comfortably during the night. Earplug usage is also recommended.

Rooms are small

Guests were disappointed with the small size of the rooms. The rooms were quite smaller than they expected and the vanity area was situated right next to the bed instead of the bathroom which was quite uncomfortable. The room size was also not suited for large group of guests but only for solo travellers or couples.
