the place was so bad that we left after only ! night of our stay there. I contacted Newcastle Executive Apartments and the person on reception was very good, he gave me his managers email so I could let them know what was happening at their complex. I wrote an extensive email but after a week have not heard anything back from the manager.Very disappointed, would not recommend

Have never reviewed before but this was the worst place I have ever stayed. Filthy floors, walls, towels & carpets. Beds lumpy and almost unsleepable. No doors on wardrobe and no coat hangers. Half vertical blinds missing so had outside light shining in all night. The only thing this property had going for it was it’s position. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else

The quilt on the main bed was dirty, there was food on the floor under the beds (could be seen by just standing in the room). We killed 3 cockroaches. Very dirty hand and face prints on the door. No iron. It’s a very basic unit, which is fine, the price was good but it was no where near clean enough. Security could be better as well.

I didn't receive check in details until after arrival and had to contact to get them. Arrived 2 hours after allowed check in time, and the location still wasn't ready. Had to wait another hour after arrival to gain entry. Furniture dumped on nature strip, rubbish around precinct. Microwave didn't work, however was replaced 7pm that evening. One set of batteries between two remotes (A/C and TV).....

The apartments are in a great location. They have been recently painted and were clean and tidy inside. The area around the apartments is dirty with rubbish in the garden beds and broken furniture out the front of the apartment. Overall we had a pleasant stay.
