I have stayed at this venue before, everything was as expected, it was the 1st time in 10 years since I have been back to this venue and it is the same if not better than before.

I would gladly recommend this venue to my colleagues in the future.

well done to staff and management for a great venue

Please can electric blankets be added for the winter months. Newcastle does get really cold. I really enjoyed my stay, the food was very delicious and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Thank you Nicola for everything.

Newcastle is the ideal stopover from Kruger Park to Durban or Drakensburg. Halfway between Richards Bay and Johannesburg.

For along time I was under the impression that Newcastle was about coal and steel mines. Newcastle tourists places and the warmth of the people.
