Traveling on a budget can be a challenge in a city like Newcastle, though not impossible. We’re here to give you the local’s knowledge of where to stay and what to do, and accommodation is the first step. For those traveling on a dime, look no further than Ibis Accommodation houses scattered in Newcastle. The big question is which Ibis best suits your agenda and tourist vibes?
Budget Ibis Newcastle
Budget Ibis Newcastle is located at Wallsend, located a 25 minute drive out of the CBD. An average night will only set you back $89, though being so far away from town has it’s draw backs. Budget Ibis is a great establishment for a one night stay as they have a huge car park at no cost. Unless you have hired a car or are willing to rely on Uber or Taxi’s, this choice may hinder your overall moments about town.
Dining options around this area are quite limited, though our choice would be Wallsend RSL. A walk around the corner of the Ibis will see you at the RSL for a laid back night of food and drink. A drive into town will cost about $35 to $40 in a taxi if you choose to drink, and you will be spoilt for choice when you arrive.
Confusing, isn’t it? Ibis Newcastle is located smack bang in the middle of town. Situated on Hunter Street, it is well positioned in the middle of the CBD with a short walk to cafes, restaurants and shopping precincts. A night’s stay is around $150, a reasonable accommodation purchase being so close to all inner city attractions.
If you were trying to get to the beach or see the beautiful harbour, you just need to walk out the front door of the Ibis turn left onto Hunter Street and walk a short ways to the Honeysuckle Precinct. There are plenty of dining and options to choose from, and an array of small bars to get that cheeky drink or two.
For Dining options, we recommend Darby Street – the central hub for evening and early morning eateries. Walk up and down the 1km long stretch and you will find handfuls of establishments ready to serve you well priced, great portioned meals and great coffee.
If you forgot that damn toothbrush you can always head over to Market Town Shopping Centre – which has Woolworths, Coles, Dan Murphy’s and other variety stores that you find in a small shopping centre.
