Officially opening on 15 June 2021 Crystalbrook Kingsley will be serving a new level of sustainable luxury to the City of Newcastle, featuring 130 contemporary rooms and suites, with urban, park and harbour views.

Centrally located in the Cultural Precinct opposite Civic Park, Crystalbrook Kingsley is a transformation of Newcastle’s iconic ‘Roundhouse’ building, which started life in the 1970s as the City Administration Centre.

In an Australian first, Crystalbrook Kingsley will have 100% waste-free bathrooms, where all bathroom amenities will be biodegradable or recyclable. Other sustainable initiatives include the use of upcycled and recycled materials in construction, a single-use plastic free environment, keyless room access and paperless check in and check out.

All rooms and suites come equipped with technology sweeteners including tablet control centres to order in-room dining or a room tidy-up, STAYCAST by Google for video streaming and access to hundreds of recent release complimentary movies.

The hotel’s environmental stance continues through to the crowning glory of the hotel, a rooftop restaurant and rooftop bar, where 80% of the produce is grown within a three-hour radius of the hotel.

The name Kingsley is a tribute to Newcastle’s heritage and the city’s earlier name of Kingston, which dates back to 1804, with Crystalbrook Kingsley’s General Manager, Carl Taranto, explaining the importance they placed on weaving the city’s culture and history into the hotel’s personality.

“Championing Newcastle’s heritage and embracing the City’s shifting landscape is at the heart of the hotel. Locals and visitors alike will be able to see this threaded through the interior design, which is a contemporary take on our mining history, and in our partnerships, our restaurant and bar concepts and in our food and beverage offering.

“This is a significant and immensely exciting opening for both Newcastle and Crystalbrook Collection’s growing portfolio of luxury hotels and resorts.”
