Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a gorgeous property! We loved our stay! My husband and I and my parents simply loved our stay in the Cooks Hill Chalet! The house itself is in an incredibly handy location just one street and a stroll from Darby St and all its cafes and restaurants. There is off street plus a parking token for an extra car so none of the usual Newcastle parking problems either. Thank you! And that is before you even enter the house itself .. the property is simply gorgeous! A prime example of beautiful period architecture lovingly restored. Elegant furniture with a lovely neutral colour palette and timber throughout and every possible kitchen/entertaining appliance thoughtfully provided. Superb! Even beach towels if you wanted to nip to the beach (which we didn't as it was winter!) but, as we were chilly, ducted a/c made it simple and cosy to heat the whole property. There was even a little fire effect heater in the sitting room to complete the wrap-up and stay warm effect. Perfect! And not to forget the welcome packs of toiletries supplied for each of us. All little touches that made us know the team at Cooks Hill Chalets really wanted to ensure we had a great stay .. and we did! We would definitely recommend this property. We would definitely stay again. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A-mazing!!! We loved our stay at the Cooks Hill chalets! Our kids never wanted to leave. We stayed for the purpose of a sporting event at National Park which was an easy 900m stroll as was a Marketown. The location was perfect with Darby st restaurants and caf├ęs one street across. Too many things to mention - the large sunny office (we were there for relaxing but the kids loved playing board games out there), nespresso coffee machine and pods, the thickest and softest towels, amazing sheets, comfy beds, pillows and heated throughout. The BBQ and outdoor facilities and backyard are gorgeous but we didn't use due to the weather. It would be great to spend some time here in summer as the beach was less than 1km away. We were made to feel so welcome, nothing was a problem. Everything has been thought of here iPad docks by each bed, luxury toiletries the list goes on. Highly recommend for a luxury family weekend away with space for everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Class act I can't recommend this place enough. Beautifully presented home, perfect location, and exceptional service with all the trimmings. It has everything you could possibly need and then some. We had an early check in and late check out which was fantastic and nothing was a problem. You will not find better accommodation anywhere in newcastle. 11/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the perfect place to stay in Newcastle for any reason. Minutes to beaches, cafes and all Newcastle has to offer. The appointments in the accommodation are first class and the attention to detail for customers' comfort and convenience is outstanding. From the minute we arrived I knew that I had made the right choice, what a magnificent place for my daughter to get ready for her wedding. To Jacqui we extend our thanks, her professionalism. style and customer service is the best we have experienced. Many many thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We stayed at CooksHill Chalet for our daughter's weekend wedding. Not only did it give the girls an elegant setting to get dressed and have photos, it gave the rest of us (mum, dad, sister, auntie) a wonderful holiday experience. CooksHill Chalet made our wedding even more special--it made the whole event perfect.
