Innovative new hotel is now Newcastle’s biggest

Little National Newcastle has officially opened its doors, marking the third Little National hotel in Australia. Canberra-based property group DOMA were excited to bring their innovative concept to the New city’s emerging waterfront entertainment precinct.

Situated at 44 Honeysuckle Drive, Little National is centrally located on Newcastle’s thriving harbourfront district, walking distance to the transport interchange and popular restaurant destinations.

DOMA managing director, Jure Domazet, says: “Little National Newcastle marks the third venture hotel in Australia, and stands as a testament to DOMA’s commitment to providing an affordable luxury hotel experience. We have had a presence in the Newcastle region for over 12 years now, so we were thrilled to be able to reconnect with local operators and contribute to Newcastle’s emerging hospitality precinct.”

General manager of Little National Newcastle, Thomas Craigie, says: “I am thrilled to join DOMA’s newest addition to the vibrant city of Newcastle and lead a passionate team dedicated to excellence and guest satisfaction.

Each bathroom is fitted with luxurious Byredo amenities.
