Dining Experience

On our recent dining at Babbingtons we were delighted with the variety in the menu list. The wait staff was very friendly, well presented and the service was excellent . The food was delicious, presentation was excellent and the food delivery was prompt. We are regulars at Babbingtons and we were not disappointed in any way on our dining experience. The chef is definitely a master and we will be visiting again real soon.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Babbingtons and found the staff most attentive and friendly. The team at Babbingtons made you feel welcome and they had a great sense of humour and were keen to make you feel at home. The food was brilliant and was presented with professionalism. I would recommend everyone to try the Babbingtons experience.

Christmas Lunch

Over the last 6 years I have had a few bad experiences when it comes to eating out at Christmas. We found a good place last year and we were all set to go back there until it fell into the lake. So we started to look around and found this place. From the moment we walked through the door we were met by smiling friendly staff. The starter came to the table but the rest you had to help yourself. The drinks were included with the meal and all you had to do was raise your hand and order. Everything was cooked to perfection and there was quite a few options on offer. The one thing that you never get when eating out is plenty of gravy.Here this was not the case. All the staff from reception to the waiters were outstanding in making this a wonderful occasion and we would go back there anytime. Thank you Apollo, you made our day special and this from someone who just wanted to stay at home for Christmas.

Pleasantly Suprised

You don't always expect a restaurant attached to a hotel to be as good as this. Took my wife out to dinner for her birthday, so wanted to surprise her with something different. We were greeted by a friendly staff member who quickly seated us and brought water to the table. The waiter explained the specials and left us alone only to return to top up our water regularly until we ordered. There was a fantastic choice of all courses with the entrees arriving quickly, followed by the main course at an appropriate time. We were treated like valued customers with all staff very attentive. A desert menu was offered and once again the choices were very good. The ambience of the restaurant was very relaxed and we were seated in a spot that was out of the way and quite private. The quality of the food and the service was outstanding. I have eaten in restaurants all over Australia and Babbingtons have done themselves and Newcastle proud. I look forward to returning.

Great Value

Stayed here overnight on a business trip. From the start the staff were welcoming and friendly. Room was clean, nicely renovated bathroom and a big balcony. So nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the evening breeze. Room service was prompt and the food was delicious and well priced. The tandoori chicken with spiced chickpea and yogurt salad was perfect. Bed was very comfortable. This is certainly the best of the hotel choices in Charlestown. Will definitely stay here again.
