Although often way overpriced on weekends the ibis Newcastle is generally my fallback option. It’s an older prefab style ibis but rooms and bathroom are obviously much bigger than the ones in the ibis Budget brand. The bar area is quite ok and they have no restrictions on the choice of welcome drink with Accor Plus etc which is nice.
We had some issues this visit. When we arrived at our room we opened the door and the bed wasn’t made up. They dealt with this well and offers us free drinks in the bar. Also, although I said we’d have a late check out a note wasn’t made of this so of course we had a knock on the door around 10 from housekeeping. I also couldn’t find a “Do Not Disturb” sign.
So this stay wasn’t quite as good as other stays we’ve had there but it’s an Ibis it’s in a good location in Newcastle CBD and you get what you expect. As long it’s not too expensive a rate (<$150) you’ll be reasonably satisfied. More
