Look inside Newcastle’s first 5-star hotel before next week’s opening

Crystalbrook Collection has transformed Newcastle’s iconic Council Administration Centre into a sustainably-considered 130 room luxury hotel.

Opening on June 9, Crystalbrook Kingsley will also feature all Crystalbrook’s environmental practices including a single use plastic free environment, a 100 per cent waste-free bathroom, upcycled brand items and the use of technology, such as in-room tablets and mobile check-in, to create paperless environments and experiences.

The rooftop space will open with Roundhouse restaurant and Romberg’s bar boasting panoramic views of Newcastle city and Nobby’s Head.

Guests arrive in the original heritage elevators. The elevator doors open to Romberg’s featuring a lowered 10-metre marble bar allowing uninterrupted views.

Roundhouse restaurant features full-grown olive trees that line the rooftop’s central corridor.
