Novacastrian pride well justified


Five years later... Sustaining standards is one of the key challenges for a hotel. The Apollo has absolutely managed to do that since I last visited in 2012. 

A warm and welcoming experience with excellent cleanliness, sound and solid service, furnishings and fittings. Good nights sleep in a spacious room. 

it was mid-week and a very late check in but the restaurant - Babbingtons - takes orders till 9pm and had a mix of diners: a couple, a business group, some families with well behaved children. Food is completely fine - a bit boring on the flavour spectrum but beautifully cooked. Service is warm and enthusiastic. 

Don't stay anywhere else in Charlestown and is only 10 minutes maximum to drive to Newcastle CBD.

Simply... The BEST


Absolutely fantastic, fuss free, professional, clean, helpful - Just some of the words I can find to describe our recent 3 day stay. We will definitely be coming back on a regular basis. And I say that after staying at many different accommodations in Newcastle over the past two years. I think I've finally found my 'home away from home'. HIGHLY and TOTALLY recommend to anyone who wants a great bed and a hot shower as just the basis of a great stay when travelling.

Great food, brilliant service


Travelling alone I had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The food was truly delicious, lamb cooked perfectly and just enough, the pann cotta just melted in my mouth. The best however was the service, my wonderful waiter Blake made me feel very welcome and quite at home, genuinely interactive and attentive.

Always top quality


My wife and I have been to dinner here a few times. The menu does not have a great number of dishes, however those on offer are of the highest quality. A colleague of mine recommend Babbingtons as one of the finest restaurants in Newcastle and I would have to agree

Impressed, great standards


First time in Newcastle, didn't want to stay in the city centre. Great welcome and simple quick check-in. Lovely spacious room really high standard. Great location easy to get around. Large shopping centre nearby and plenty of eateries handy to lake and beaches. Although it's on a main highway there was no traffic noise. Excellent for business or leisure.

Great place to stay


Great value for money, breakfast was included in room cost Staff were very friendly couldn't have been more helpful Location is not far from Newcastle beaches and shops and is a short walk to Local shopping centre.

Absolutely Amazing


We stayed here throughout the Easter long weekend. It was a last minute idea and this hotel had only 2 rooms left so we jumped at the chance for a little weekend getaway. Booked the room at 11.30 am, drove up and checked in by 2.30 pm. The room was spotless, has everything you need. Very clean and easy to access. The location is perfect as we had family on both sides of the hotel, and we were central to everything. Had such a relaxing weekend, coming back to this hotel made things so much easier. The room was great, had a beautiful view, clean and modern and the staff are lovely. We are looking at coming back over the long weekend in June, looking forward to staying here again. We also had the breakfast buffet at the restaurant in the hotel - was beautiful, and extremely reasonable. Highly recommend this hotel! Absolutely amazing place to stay.

Excellent Place to Stay


I would highly recommend staying at the Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel. Why you might ask, well the service I received was absolutely outstanding, the reception staff were always friendly and courteous, and always willing to help out in anyway they could, the overall cleanliness of the room I stayed in was outstanding, and the restaurants meals were to die for. Overall I had a great weekend while in Newcastle that was definitely made better with my accommodation, being so close to shops and other food outlets, you can't go wrong while staying here.
