Newcastle’s first five-star hotel unveiled

The details of Kingsley, the first five-star hotel in the Australian city of Newcastle, have been unveiled by developers Crystalbrook Collection.



Set to open in April 2021, Kingsley aims to bring a new level of luxury to Australia's seventh-largest city and the gateway to the Hunter Valley.

Situated in the heart of Newcastle opposite Civic Park, Kingsley will transform the city's former Council Administration Centre into a 130-room hotel. 

“We are so pleased to unveil the interiors for Kingsley," said  Geoff York, interim CEO and group director of hotels. 

"The hotel celebrates Newcastle's rich history while looking forward to what the emerging city has to offer. We are honoured to now be a part of Newcastle's cultural landscape.”

Kingsley's interiors, designed by Suede Interior Design, make use of curves and rhythm. 



Layers of different textures of ivories are carried throughout the hotel and into the space from the exterior, creating a neutral palette that is broken up by hints of yellow of varying shades.

The rooftop restaurant and bar will boast views across the city and is themed around Newcastle's olive groves. 

# The name Kingsley, is a tribute to Newcastle's heritage and the city's earlier name of Kingston, dating back to 1804.
