Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything we were looking for We loved Cooks Hill Chalets, location was great and the house was just beautiful, four nights was not enough we will definitely be back. Lovely touches from the bath products to the library of books provided. With a small child the courtyard was fantastic so that we could relax while he was able to play outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just beautiful I am so thankful that I booked this property to stay prior to my wedding and to have my pre-wedding photos at. The house was amazing and just so beautiful. It was so easy to relax and enjoy the extra space whilst the hairdressers and make up artists made us us. The photographer loved the light in the house. My photos taken at Cooks Hill Chalet turned out stunning (they were my favourite). The owner was so easy and nice to deal with. The was nothing that I felt that she had not thought of to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable. I would recommend this to any brides or people staying in Newcastle. I hope also to be able to stay again at some stage even though I only live a short distance away. Thank you for providing such great accommodation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! We were a group of friends and colleagues staying at the Chalet while at a conference at University House : with six minutes walking time to the conference venue (including waiting for traffic lights to change) we were thoroughly spoiled. Unlike those staying in hotels, at lunch time most of us would saunter back home down tree-lined Dawson Street to sit in the Chalet garden and eat our own food made in the splendidly equipped kitchen, rather than queuing up in a café. (Although the cafés of Darby Street were very close and supplied coffee en route to University House in the morning.) The Chalet luxury and extraordinary attention to detail were a recurrent topic of conversation and delight. With so much space, we didn't feel on top of each other, the aerobed in the study option was highly acceptable, the furnishings were beautiful. We could only regret that we didn't have time to avail ourselves of the picnic set, the beach tennis set, the BBQ or all the kitchen equipment. Congratulations! We would highly recommend.
