  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I liked everything about the place but did not like parking my car out in the streets because of insufficient parking for guests at the facility.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Lots of construction and maintenance going on that wasn't made clear to us at the time of booking. Outdoor spa was also out of use 2/4 days of our stay. Staff were really friendly, food in the Wests group was tasty, room was nice but the indoor spa seemed to keep draining the water from the tub. Had to park on the street when we checked in as the carpark was full from those at the NRL game so wasn't private parking for hotel guests only. Overall was a nice stay but not outstanding.

    Will have to improve before I stay again.

    Rooms very tired looking and corner room I have been given recently not ideal for staying in comfort or view from room not ideal, considering what I paid I’m not impressed as to how the club and Hotel used to be.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Very disappointing. I wasn’t aware that this is a Club Hotel. Shower was luke warm. Lots of needed renovations. One of the rare occasions that I wasn’t asked about my stay on check out. I don’t think they wanted to hear my views. Lots of other much better places in Newcastle.

    Dropped the ball

    Our stay did not get off to a good start when I couldn't even hear the receptionist due to tradespeople working in the foyer. Significant renovations are being done and there was no notice of this when making the booking. Further to this a notice in the room advised keeping the blinds closed to protect your privacy due to the work taking place. This was not our first time at the Executive. But it will be the last. Not even a complimentary wine offered to compensate for the appalling conditions. No way should a customer have to pay full price and then find you are staying on a worksite. Never again.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The cleanliness is unacceptable

    We found a cockroach in our room near the sofa bed at about 11:30pm. We wouldn’t want to scare our children, so we just slept together on the queen bed that night. It made all of us couldn’t sleep well. The cleanliness is terrible, have a cockroach in room is unacceptable.
