All travellers have different priorities when selecting where to stay in a new city. One thing that most of our guests have in common is their love of a great location. Our guests know that a convenient, centrally situated hotel can save both time and money when it comes to navigating and exploring a city. The Clarendon Hotel is both central and convenient - found right in the heart of Newcastle, NSW.
As direct neighbours of the Civic Precinct, Clarendon Hotel guests find themselves just a minute's walk away from the historic Civic Theatre, the Newcastle Town Hall, the Newcastle Conservatorium of Music & the Civic Playhouse. These venues host the best, funniest & most critically acclaimed entertainment in the city.
If shopping is on the cards, then guests will be delighted to discover the unique boutiques on fashionable Darby St and in the renewed Hunter St Mall. Featuring local designers and exclusive brands, savvy shoppers will walk away with treasures not found in any other city.
When beaches and the waterfront are the Newcastle drawcards, then guests will enjoy the harbour walk that begins just metres from our Hunter St front door and ends 15 minutes later at the iconic Nobbys beach. The free bus that stops across the road will have guests whisked to Newcastle beach in minutes. And for those that brought their car, any of the six city beaches are just a few minute's drive away.
But what makes a visit to another city truly memorable is the wining and dining experiences. Clarendon Hotel guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting where to eat. Both the Honeysuckle Foreshore and Darby St are less than 5mins walk away. These modern dining strips feature delicious food spanning many cuisines. Here guests will find the ideal settings for long lunches, intimate dinners and big nights out.
Of course, we know that some visitors are simply seeking a great night in. Luckily for Clarendon Hotel guests, the ultimate Newcastle experience awaits without ever leaving the hotel. How does fancy cocktails in the Art Deco bar, followed by wine and an incredible dinner in The Courtyard Brasserie sound? Top that off with dancing to the weekend entertainment before retiring to a boutique hotel room upstairs and you've just had the perfect night in!
A visit to Newcastle and a stay at The Clarendon Hotel is full of endless possibilities.
