First look inside QT Newcastle

QT Hotels & Resorts has unveiled the first look of the QT Newcastle ahead of its opening in April.

QT Newcastle is housed within the heritage-listed, 113-year-old David Jones building on Hunter Mall and will offer 104 guest rooms and suites, public areas and private function spaces and a yet-to-be revealed signature dining concept and rooftop bar.

“We look forward to being a part of Newcastle’s resurgence, and welcoming the community as a part of ours,” said Callum Kennedy, QT Hotels & Resorts’ Group general manager.

“QT Newcastle will live and breathe with the same energy and vibrancy guests love from the world of QT. The hotel will be championed by QT’s luxurious quirk from design to signature service. It will be unlike anything the local hotel market has seen before.”

Long-time QT collaborator and designer Nic Graham said they had “reinvigorated an iconic heritage building”.

“It’s a nice reminder of the human spirit, that we all come from something,” he said.

“We have created a cocooning interior through colour blocking and juxtaposing textures, which evoke the history of Newcastle.”
