« Newie »

The location is great for getting to Newcastle as well as the lake. The room was quite large and well equipped. the carpet needed a good vacuum and layout of the bathroom (toilet behind a folding door) could be improved but overall it is very good. quiet. the late night door situation is a little messy if you don't know.

« Good Location »

When arriving we were greatly impressed with the surroundings, the Check In could not have been faulted, the staff were very friendly, the only slight negative was the stairs up from the Car Park.The room was very roomy, well laid out and with a good view, all in all we were very happy with our selection of the Mercure Charlestown.

« Disappointing Return Visit »

After spending a pleasant night here last year on our way home from Queensland we decided to stay a couple of nights this year so as to look around Newcastle. As Accor members we booked through their website some 5 months prior to checking in. On arrival they did not acknowledge that we were members and was asked if we had booked the room earlier that day. Having stayed at dozens of Mecure Hotels throughout the world, this establishment did not meet the standard that we would expect from this chain

« Great restaurant...shame about the condition of the Spa Suite room »

Very 'tired' Accor property saved by a good restaurant! Room was very run down with rotted door and fittings in Spa area...shower hose leaked profusely and an attempted repair had been made with silver masking tape. No welcome amenity was provided as a Platinum Accor member (now the third time this has been experienced at this property...they just ignore loyalty customers it seems). Only stayed at the property for the restaurant but a nearby hotel (Non Accor) has offered a good business rate so may consider staying off site and eating at the restaurant from now on.

« Mecure Charlestown »

Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant food was good but we waited over 30 mins for our meal. The rooms are just a basic hotel style room, the bathroom are tired and in need of a uplift. For a one or two night stay it is ok

« Cheap and Cheerful stay »

Though we only stayed for a short while, this property suited our needs. Perfect if you just need a bed for the night, not a great property to hang out at.The rates reflects this. A little tired on the outside, but the renovations inside are great. Lovely well kept rooms. A little noisy during peak times of cars in and out as the room windows are just near the car park. A car is preferable as a good walk from anything.

« Great place to stay »

I read a few reviews and nearly didn’t stay here, but I’m so glad I did. The staff were all friendly and professional and no request to hard for them. The rooms were clean and contained everything needed. I stayed four days and the position was ideal, easy parking, and close to shops. Restaurant was outstanding.

Thanks for your lovely feedback and for taking the time to write your review - often it is only the very few guests who have an adverse experience that leave feedback which makes selecting a hotel difficult. I am so pleased every part of your stay was as enjoyable and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kind regards, Grant

Really nice hotel for all the family. Rooms and facilities were all very clean. The family room was oversized and very comfortable, 1 queen bed and 3 single beds and still very spacious. Lovely staff, very helpful.

Lovely set out of family room with 3 single beds & a queen bed. Very roomy. The food was delicious. My son loved the spaghetti and said it was the best! Small & efficient swimming pool. Cinema & shopping centre near by.

« Good solid hotel...nothing special »

The hotel was nice and had an added bonus of complimentary water bottles and mints in the room. The air conditioner needed dusting in a big way (could see the dust on the top and all over the vents - not so nice for breathing at night). The restaurant had really good food and a great breakfast,. The front desk staff on check-in not able to help with basic public transport info to the Newcastle 500 but try to see us outrageously priced shuttles for $30 per person (more than a taxi or uber). We found the information we needed online though. Great free wi-fi. Sheets and towels crisp and clean.

Thankyou for staying with us over the Newcastle 500 weekend and I hope you had a great time. I am so pleased you enjoyed the food and complimentary items and we will certainly will look into how your air conditioner was dusting given our regular cleaning program. We do look forward to welcoming you back again soon. PS: we were not trying to 'sell' the shuttle, there was nothing in it for us accept being able to give our guests options on this super busy weekend. Regards, Grant

« It's almost a new motel »

Wow. This motel has had a face lift and it looks great. The mouldy smell is gone and there is new carpet in the hallways. The foyer looks great along with some of the sitting areas. It isn't quite finished yet but a huge improvement. Staff were very accommodating to my needs. Breakfast selection was varied and I love the pancake machine.

« Excellent overnight stay »

Booked hotel on Accor plus private members' offer. Excellent value with breakfast included. Comfortable bed and had a quiet room in spite of hotel's location near the Pacific highway. Ample car parking spaces.

some how this motel lacked the little some things that make the difference, but could not put a name to them. arriving back after visiting daughter and wet from rain no towels in room did not help review.

« The worst Accor Hotel I ever stayed »

I have no choice but to call this hotel the worst Accor hotel I have ever visited in my life. I stayed in EXECUTIVE ROOM : the room included : cracked door, cracked basin, paint falling of the bathroom walls and ceiling, holes and stains in the carpet. Air-conditioning is so dirty that it causes serious danger to people’s health and it needs to be reported to NSW Health and Safety Authority. Carpet stained but what was more shocking, there were spider webs in the corners of that room. During shower, probably due to humidity caused by the water being used, the pieces of paint from the celling dropped on my head. I must admit, that was one big sickening, traumatic shower experience. I went back downstairs to check if I was really in the right hotel and if I was accommodated in the Executive Room. Unfortunately, to my disbelief, the receptionists confirmed that the room I was given was indeed the Executive Room and yes, this is hotel is indeed 4-star Mercure Accor Hotel. SERVICE : there was only one Receptionist, who seemed to be responsible for everything – she checked us in, she prepared drinks at the bar, she took our room service order and she also checked us out on the next day. This person gave us an impression that she was the only staff member in that hotel. RESTAURANT: open for dinner for only 2 hours, till 8 pm (room service till 9 pm). BREAKFAST: it was one of the worst we ever had anywhere. There was no single piece of fresh vegetables or anything fresh for that instance, no cold cut meats choice, no smoked salmon or even cheeses selection. Coffee in old jars which were so old and dirty that it was disgusting to even touch it. I ended up paying extra to have a coffee for breakfast. The overall feel was as if we stayed in a low-budget, shoddy motel, where our survival skills were being put to the test. Please note, this hotel is rated 4 stars on Accor website. Star rating is an agreement between you and your guests in relation to standards: your standards and standards expected by your guests. Having my comments and photographs to your disposal, please advise if this is indeed what you recognize as Le Club AccorHotels standard of 4 star accommodation? Dear Le Club AccorHotels, my humble advise, save yourself from all future embarrassment, not to mention misleading your members, please remove subjected hotel from your listing, or at least adjust its star ranking. You should be extremely ashamed to have this facility under your brand.
