Very clean comfortable modern room. My toddler and I enjoyed the pool. The staff were super friendly and it was the perfect location. I loved the eco friendly toilet, saving on water use, and the large rain head shower.

After staying over 7 years here first time in a box room out back of building, also cockroaches in room and no mirror in bathroom was broken, guess gold customer has no relevance anymore. Disappointing.

Extra long weekend stay
Great communication from the outset, staff all very friendly. Location of hotel is very convenient, easy reach of Newcastle and beaches - we walked a lot and left car in carpark which was adequate despite motel being at full capacity. Room was clean and tidy, ac worked well, bed comfortable. Despite facing busy road ropm was super quiet. Overall a really really nice stay and we'd highly recommend Merewether Motel as a great spot to stay if spending a few days or a week around Newcastle.
