The staff make your stay a pleasurable experience, they go out of their way to welcome you and make your stay enjoyable. We stayed in a 2 bedroom family room. The rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. Balcony's overlooking the pool and bushland are an added bonus. Room service is exceptional and would recommend as the staff catered to our dietary needs and the steak was cooked exactly as ordered. Breakfast from the menu has a good variety, is good value, fast service and was enjoyed by the whole family. Would recommend this accommodation to other families who are after a central location in the Newcastle area that is welcoming, comfortable and good value for money. - Jane - Tripadvisor 30/08/23

Clean, comfortable and well appointed room, friendly staff and convenient location. The restaurant provided a good choice of breakfast options and was conveniently located. Parking worked well and was secure. - Trip advisor user, 25/7/23

Great location. Lovely spotless room. Very nice and helpful staff. Had dinner in Babingtons restaurant. The meal was very good and again the staff were really informative and attentive. Would highly recommend both the accommodation and restaurant. - Trip advisor user, 18/7/23

Excellent food, great staff, very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent on site parking choices and location. We ordered room service after a very long day of driving, food was hot when it arrived at our room, very generous portions and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay there again.
- Trip Advisor user, 12/7/23

Really impressed with the hotel and facilities and the fact that they didnt charge us for our 7 year old to have a continental breakfast with us. Most other places charge you a full fee for your child, for them to only eat a bowl of cereal or piece of toast. This is the kind of small difference that wil make me choose to stay here again over another hotel. - Trip Advisor user, 9/7/23

So grateful we found this hotel in Charlestown. After suffering a car breakdown and needing an emergency night in Newcastle with my 2 children this hotel was amazing, room was huge, kids had their own beds and I had my own room with a king and was far cheaper and superior than the hotel we stayed in the night before. Can’t fault it and staff so friendly - Claire, Trip Advisor April 2024 - Booking.com user, 9/6/23

The staff at Best Western Apollo International were exceptional. I was limited in my walking ability and they met my request for a room on the ground level, and in fact had gone a step further by giving us a disability room. Our room was great! Well appointed, super clean, fabulous comfy bed, and everything we could possibly need. We had breakfast there which was delicious and well priced. - Michelle, Booking.com. 26/5/23

From check in to check out fantastic. Staff and food top notch. Bed very comfortable and showers hot. Would throughly recommend to all my friends. Free a long day of travel once we booked in we could just sit back and relax without going out again! - Trip Advisor user, 21/5/23

Great value, large very well-maintained rooms. Friendly accommodating staff. Hence I've stayed there more than once and will do it again at least twice more this year. Easy parking and easy access to rooms. A clean well-run restaurant & bar. - Trip Advisor user, 1/5/23

We booked this for a small meeting, overnight, not really sure what to expect. We were blown away. The room was really suitable for our needs, the motel rooms (and beds) very comfortable, and the food excellent. I was really impressed with the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks Apollo for a great stay. - Trip advisor user, 27/4/23

- Customer Service Exceptional - Rooms overlooking bushlands or the pool, makes you feel like you're in a rainforest, despite the highway out the front. Which you cannot hear at night or in the morning. - Gymnasium small but adequate for any Athlete or person who likes a morning or night workout on a work trip - Food is outstanding, whether you order room service or dine in at Babbingtons Bar & Grill - Easy location to get to, close to Newcastle CBD, Merewether beach, Redhead beach and Merewether baths. Merewether baths night swim - A MUST! - Close to all shops and other restaurants if Babbington's isn't tickling your fancy for the night - Beds are ridiculously comfortable and the rooms are perfect for anyone who is disturbed easily by the morning sun, as the curtains keep the light out. - Charlotte, Trip Advisor, 24/4/23

Room was amazing. We had the 2 x Queen room. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. It had everything that you would need for a holiday or business trip. The bathroom was large and very clean. The guest soaps smelt amazing. Some undercover parking, which was nice to not have to pay for. Our room was on the main road side, but we were unable to hear the traffic. Overall, great place to stay at!!!
- Trip Advisor user, 21/4/23

Friendly and professional staff were always helpful. The rooms are very clean. My room was very quiet despite being on the road side of the building- double windows make all the difference. The facilities are great. Had the breakfast there, good coffee! Would recommend. - Trip advisor user, 13/4/23

Stayed here on many occasions and never had one bad experience. Staff are always accommodating and polite. Spotless rooms and the beds are just so comfortable. Food is absolutely devine. - Norma, Google, 12/4/23

This hotel was recommended to us by the business we were doing custom with in Newcastle. The recommendation was well worth it. The room was neat clean and tidy, the restaurant was just great ( good quality food and wine and very reasonable prices) Far enough from the road that noise was not a problem and we had a very nice breakfast at a very reasonable price. Check in and out were smooth - Trip Advisor user, 8/4/23

What more do you want when travelling - a quiet room, a comfortable bed, and a hot shower. All were supplied and with no fuss. The check-in and check-out were efficient, the internet was fast, and the room service fast. Will book again when next in Newcastle. - Trip Advisor user, 29/3/23

After 3 very big days at the Newcastle 500 supercars, this was a really nice place to come back to each day. The room was clean and serviced every day, the staff were great and the service was excellent. - Trip Advisor user, 21/3/23

Great Location Best Food EVER!! Best Service Ever!! Where Else would you Stay?? Staff are Number One including Management. ( Kat & Richard) The Only Place to Stay in NEWCASTLE!! I've being staying here every month from 2020 onwards!! - Trip Advisor user, 17/3/23

This hotel has excellent facilities, excellent staff and is well located. Staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the rooms are clean, comfortable and well worth the cost. They are willing to go that extra to make your stay memorable. - John L, Trip Advisor, 15/3/23

The stay was so comfortable - the salmon steak was amazing and very generous. All the staff are engaged with the clients from housekeeping through to restaurant staff inclusive. I have been staying at the Apollo every three weeks for work over the last few months and I love it. I’m going to miss the regular stays when my work schedule changes. - Trip Advisor user, 10/3/22

Clean,great service. Great value for money. Thoroughly recommend it! - Trip Advisor user, 3/3/23

Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel is a must stay if you’re travelling to Newcastle .

Great shower. There is nothing you could fault when staying here. The staff are always very HELPFUL, nothing is a problem for them. For us we will ALWAYS return to this great hotel when we are visiting, as not only are you close to everything, there service is AMAZING. Special Thanks to the staff members Jacob and Richard for your kindness. - Trip Advisor user, 4/2/23

Comfortable hotel and great staff and facilities. Beds were great and hotel room was clean and had all we needed for our break. The hotel front staff were very friendly and accomodating. Have stayed here previously and will continue to make this our preferred place to stay when we are here. - Trip Advisor user, 9/1/23

A very modern, spacious and clean rooms. comfortable beds. Ideally located as we were in the centre of places we wanted to go. Food at Babbingtons Bar & Grill was delicious and awesome coffee. The price I found very reasonable and I will be returning again. - Trip advisor user, 6/1/23

Best stay with family! We stayed on boxing day, on our way to Brisbane. Staff members really friendly and courteous. Room also very clean and comfortable. Easy to get around to town centre. Parking area very secured . We travelled with 6 yrs old child, hotel staff provide extra bed for us with no fuss. Excellent team! - Trip Advisor user, 1/1/23

Location, convenience and extraordinary value is offered by Apollo. Add the feeling of personal service, friendliness and attention to detail, especially in Babbingtons Restaurant and it is the complete package. Very happy! - Trip Advisor User, 24/12/22

The hotel is in a great location and is very clean. All the staff were helpful, friendly and provided flawless service. There was very good communication from the moment we booked until we checked in. We will definitely be staying here again. - Trip Advisor user, 28/11/22

Excellent - I travel all over NSW for work and the Apollo is my favourite - it’s like a holiday when I visit every time and I almost forget I’m there for work. The staff and service is absolutely incredible. I have just started to use the gym there as well. I’m excited to order my meal when I visit and always enjoy it whether I get room service or go ti the restaurant - Trip Advisor user, 1/12/22

From the moment I walked in to the moment I checked out I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was clean the staff were friendly and approachable with customer the focus at every request. The restaurant was wonderful with great food and wonderful service . The other amenities such as pool was wonderful and the fitness centre was clean and fresh. - Michael, Trip Advisor, 31/10/22

We had a group of about 20 stay for a netball tournament. The staff were so accommodating. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The Gazebo and pool are were perfect to get together and let the kids cool down after games and then have dinner together. Would highly recommend. - Zoe, Trip Advisor, 1/11/22

Very Clean in every part of the hotel, great service, comfortable bed spacious and quiet room, plenty of free parking and Internet, handy dining room and bar, well stocked mini bar Close to the City and Freeway. - Trip Advisor user, 4/11/22

Easily accessible with modern amenities including pool and gym. Kookaburras greet you each day and nestled in bush land makes this a tranquil place to stay. Staff are friendly and helpful and the food is amazing. - Trip Advisor user, 25/10/22

Well appointed rooms with all the amenities one can expect. Stayed for business and the room was nice and immaculately decked out and the restaurant was buzzing and food was out of this world! Would definitely stay again! - Trip Advisor user, 8/10/22

Such an awesome place to stay and staff are awesome. We stay at least once or twice a month for my cancer treatment with my husband and other times with friends. We recommend the Apollo to all our friends and family, we love this place. - Trip Advisor user, 14/9/22

My experience was great, stayed there for 3 days, friendly staffs nice location and walking distance to shopping centres. Ambience was great, big room and well cleaned toilets & room with all required amenities, internet connection with no disruption, great view from room. Overall a great experience and would recommend others too. - Trip Advisor user, 17/9/22

We love staying at The Apollo. It's a lovely comfortable place to stay. The staff are always welcoming and the best breakfast in the morning at Babbington a too. The king size bed is very comfortable and we love the balcony to sit and have a drink overlooking the bush. Definitely our go to hotel when we visit Newcastle - Trip Advisor user, 5/9/22

I have conducted events in similar venues over the past 30 years throughout Australia and internationally but the experience I enjoyed at the Apollo was absolutely superb in every aspect. It’s rare to have things flow so seamlessly which is why the Apollo will always be front of mind as the benchmark for how things should be handled. The friendly front-of-house staff, the incredibly accommodating Steve who was awesome with his flawless attention to detail (he should run courses for event managers), the fantastic food and kitchen/ wait staff service, the accommodation itself, all simply amazing. I couldn’t have wished for a better experience so thank you to all. - Leo Powell, 4/9/22

We had our 50th wedding anniversary party here last Saturday evening in the Functions Room. The event was a spectacular success, food absolutely outstanding and plenty of it, drinks reasonably priced and Function Room hire waived as we booked out many, many hotel rooms for our guests. Never have we been to a function where Canapes were so plentiful or delicious. The mains in particular were so well prepared and melt in the mouth, that many guests are considering holding functions here. Our guests were glowing in their praise of everything. Wait staff were courteous and attentive, a dance floor, microphone and table service all arranged for us. Steve, the Conference and Events Manager, was simply magnificent and nothing was a problem to him. Whomever hired him deserves a raise. Well worth the money and if we need to hire function facilities again, it will be here. - Jim, 30/8/22

From our very 1st visit this place has been fantastic. We have booked our 5th and 6th visit. Staff are always genuinely smiling. Rooms are always immaculate. Service is First rate. No regrets. - Victoria, Google, 6/8/22

Nice stay and excellent restaurant both for dinner and breakfast. Lovely outlook. The food was good and the chef knew how to cook a well done steak. The room was nice and bed comfortable. Did not want to leave. - Samson, Trip Advisor, 16/8/22

Stayed for one night due to vehicle modifications , great location, room excellent for price, facilities great, shower hot and great pressure. The restaurant on site was great as it was cold rainy and windy, excellent food. Service at reception and restaurant was great. I would recommend over staying in heart of Newcastle. - Gary, Trip Advisor, 13/8/22

Staff were wonderful and friendly. The rooms are well appointed, beds comfortable and the whole place spotlessly clean. the food is really delicious. I stayed with my brother who is in a wheelchair and it was so easy to manage. THANKYOU APOLLO! - Peter, Google, 1/8/22

I went to Newcastle to visit my 103 year old Mother who is in aged care. I asked my sister who lives in Newcastle to find a hotel which would cater for my needs as a wheelchair user. She checked out many hotels before settling on the Apollo International. This hotel had just refurbished and had four rooms dedicated to the disabled. My room was splendid, wider doors and fully equipped bathroom. The restaurant facilities were the best I have come across in many years. Great food and service. The other accommodation suppliers in the Newcastle area should take a leaf out of Apollo's book and make the same type of accommodation as they did as there are practically none of them doing this. Top marks Apollo! - Martin, Trip Advisor, 3/8/22

Free parking, check in easy because the staff are wonderful. The rooms are enormous- all with a couch, which is great. Impeccably clean. It is an easy walk to Charlestown shops and despite being on the Pacific Highway there is no road noise. There is no better place to stay in the Newcastle area than here. - Richard, Booking.com, 24/7/22

Great position for our stopover, very welcoming staff and reception area. Room was clean and comfortable. The on-site restaurant was just exceptional for dinner and breakfast. We loved everything. - Robyn, Booking.com

Exceptional service - staff are very professional, friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable, with everything needed, supplied... wifi was easy to connect, the environment was pleasant, easy to work in and easy to relax in for the remainder of the night. - Trip Advisor user, 20/7/22

Great staff, easy check in and spacious and well appointed rooms. We had a family room and a king room for our family, with rooms being far nicer than our standard motel. Bedding was as good as hotels twice the price. Onsite restaurant looked nice though we did not eat there. Easy parking out the front. Everyone very happy - we would definitely stay there again. - Trip Advisor user, 13/7/22

What a great team - Richard - Jane and the crew, Chef - Waitress and Room Service second to none!! The only place to Stay in Newcastle!! I could talk about this place all night long! - Trip Advisor user, 28/6/22

Best place to stay in Newcastle, highway location but very little noise. Stayed in a king room which was huge, with a couch which I love. Clean and tidy and cleaning was prompt and efficient. Good gym. Easy walk to Charlestown Square...great spot. - Richard W, Trip Advisor, 21/5.22

From the moment we walked in the foyer a first class experience begun. We could not fault a thing, staff friendly and accomodating, room clean and comfortable, dining was top hat quality, we would highly recommend the Apollo. - Trip Advisor user, 20/4/22

I had the pleasure of spending a night at the Apollo with a friend. As soon as we entered we were greeted with a friendly smile. The room was smart and well appointed with a balcony looking out on beautiful trees. It felt so relaxing and quiet. We had dinner in the restaurant and loved the food, plentiful and absolutely delicious. Do order dessert!! And, I believe breakfast is also worth staying for! I highly recommend the Apollo and will definitely stay there again - Trip Advisor user, 3/3/22
