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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family and I had a wedding in Newcastle and stayed at Cooks Hill Chalets for a week. Even before we arrived at the accommodation I felt very confident that we had chosen well, as Jacqui Harvey the owner was prompt and attentive with communication. With two young children it is always difficult to find the 'right' accommodation. When we arrived at Cooks Hill Chalets the house was great blend of character and functionality and was everything that was promised from the website images. The highlights for us were the location, very homey, backyard with BBQ and entertaining area, King size bed and having separate bedrooms for us all. As we no longer live in Newcastle but have many friends still living there, Cooks Hill Chalets was the perfect place to catch up, relax and cherish these special times. We wouldn't hesitate to return! Thank you, Jacqui!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was in Newcastle last week as Maid of Honor for a friends wedding. The bride, groom, groomsman and I (along with a couple of other friends) stayed at Cooks Hill Chalets for four nights over the duration of the wedding.We found the accommodation to be absolutely superb. The location was idylic with Newcastles best cafes and shops a two minute stroll away.The house and garden itself, also exceeded every expectation (and based on the great quality of the photos online, our expectations were very high).Every detail was catered for ... from gorgeous artwork, and flowers, and feautures throughout the house to MOR product gift bags for each guest, slippers, beautiful towels, luxurious throw rugs and even a drawer full of great DVDs for the kids.The venue proved the perfect location for pre wedding photos. It was was big enough to comfortably accommodate the scores of well wishers passing through each day to congratulate the happy couple (and had sufficient space for the rest of us to escape to a different part of the house when we needed some relaxing time out. The garden was perfectly groomed and house immaculately clean and sparkling. Each bedroom had all the comforts of home (even the study with an airbed as comfortable as a regular double bed).We found Cooks Hill Chalets to be excellent value for money (far cheaper and so much nicer than any hotel equivalent), and would thoroughly recommend it to any wedding party, or other special event. Cooks Hill Chalets could not have been more perfect and made our Newcastle visit so special from start to finish. A huge thank you to Jacqui and all at Cooks Hill Chalets for the wonderful service, and facilities you provided, we look forward to staying at your establishment again in the near future.Regards, Rachel, Elizabeth, Steven, John-Paul, Chloe, Matthew and all at the Saunders-Walker wedding September 2012.
