Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Holiday House As two families, we stayed for 4 nights and the house catered for our every need. The bedding was extremely comfortable, the house clean and tidy and every little thing you think you need, you'll find. Jacqui was extremely helpful prior and after our stay so thanks again Jacqui. I highly recommend this property to anyone seeking accommodation in Newcastle, with Darby street less than a minute walk the location just tops it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in the country! My work requires my family and I to travel around the country and we have just got back from the most perfect time at Cooks Hill Chalets - Grande Chalet. Right in the heart of Newcastle, it is a spacious, modern and BRILLIANTLY designed home. The photos don't do it justice! The stunning attention to detail was made it is as luxurious as a 5 star hotel, but with the comfort of plenty of bedrooms, office, kitchen (with everything!), dining, a nice open living area and a HUGE master bedroom. We have stayed all around the country, but this has been the best stay yet! Response to emails was efficient and everything was very dealt with very professionally. I would recommend it to anyone if we weren't so keen to keep it all to ourselves!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC!!! Our stay at the Grande Chalet was perfect. We went for a competition and the location was awesome. The accommodation was homely, yet felt like an expensive hotel. We all received a toiletries pack each, which was a lovely added feature. Will definitely be staying here again and recommend friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully appointed, heritage holiday experience We felt instantly at home staying in this gorgeous heritage cottage. Great if you are looking for a luxury experience with load of extras and attention to detail. If you must bring your work with you there is a fully fitted out study that's private but part of the home. We started most days with coffee in Darby Street just a few steps away and everything we needed was in walking distance. The sunny backyard with outdoor setting was a bonus. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Luxury! My Mum and I stayed at the beautiful Grande Chalet for a week around the wedding of my daughter. The chalet was perfect for the dressing, preparations and importantly the photos of the girls on the day of the wedding. Everything you could ever want was in the house from luxurious linen, beautiful furniture to amazingly equipped kitchen, laundry, office, bathroom and bedrooms. The outside area was very pleasant and relaxing. Also the car park was super convenient in this centrally located area with great cafes, shops and the beach close by. Communication with Jacqui was great and we felt very welcome. A lovely touch was the Orange (my home town) sparkling wine on arrival. I would definitely recommend this beautiful accommodation and will stay again. Thanks Karen.
