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

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.
