Wonderful stay at this new Newcastle hotel - check-in seamless, very friendly greeting from Hal, higher level room as requested. Stylish modern, colourful room fit-out, very good size room, large shower with good flow rate and very comfortable bed. A small chocolate box gift for my husbands birthday was also a lovely and appreciated touch. We also enjoyed a great evening dinner in the top floor Round House Restaurant. Staff again so friendly and accommodating, food (quail, kingfish sashimi, duck, snapper and then wonderful desserts) was glorious, all accompanied by an outstanding evening view over the city and harbour. And then there were the cocktails in the adjoining Romberg's Bar. All up, a wonderful stay at a standard worthy of any capital city.

Good but…
Overall we were very happy with our stay and will be back. Our main problem was with checking in. We were unaware that we had to park in the 5 minute zone near the hotel before checking in. But even if we knew that there were no vacant spots when we arrived mainly because several people were abusing the 5 minute limit.

Difficult check in.
This is our second stay here. First time I thought that service was a bit lacking but ok as the hotel was new. When we dropped our bags off this time I was told they thought I hadn't paid. I showed the staff member my booking as he said that was fine. When we returned to get our keys and dealt with a different staff member he asked the same again. I showed him my confirmation stating that it was paid in full. He said this wasn't enough and could I provide my credit card statement or transaction listing. Luckily I could find it! I said that maybe it was something wrong with their system because I have used a 3rd party booking each time and the same questions have been asked on each check in. The rooms are clean and well stocked but small. We ate in the roundhouse and the views are beautiful. We also used parking offsite which is a 5 minute walk. No valet parking available.
