Clean, comfortable and well appointed apartments in great location for our needs. Well priced for business purposes with hotel and meal options a short walk away. Would recommend the Larger apts for families etc and close to JH hospital.

Not impressed with the housekeeping. Booked 4 days over the Christmas weekend. The apartment smelled musty, the aircon was not working, floor cleaning solution filled in the dishwashing bottle, dirty oven and the beds had sand over the sheets. Had to call the main office twice to get the aircon fixed with the usual excuse of holidays affecting repairs. Have emailed on our displeasure and will be cautious when booking with Blue Gum again

Ok for the money
The apartments had everything we needed for our family gathering but is in major need of a good scrub and repair. I'm not sure if the owners just don't care because they are always booked out or if it's bad management. It can be noisy but that's to be expected in apartments. We had the two three bedders at the front.

I spent / endured 2 nights here for business. After having a terrible and unsafe experience across the highway at the Jesmond Villas a couple of weeks prior, I asked not to be booked into the same area (...my client was making the booking on my behalf) again. Unfortunately they just booked me in here.
The remote checkin process worked well and I got into my room. There was enough parking and the fact that there was a security entrance to get into the foyer for the block was an added benefit.
The room itself was actually an apartment that was a fairly decent size. (2 x bedrooms, 1 x bathroom, kitchen, and large lounge/dinning area). Thats about were the good points end unfortunately. The apartment was dirty and in need of repairs and refurb...although it didn't seem that old. The beds were flimsy and uncomfortable with various stains on the top sheet. There was a dirty used bandage on the shelf of the wardrobe. Half the lights didn't work and the living areas didn't get much natural light. The lounge was grubby but kind of OK. The towels were so worn that they were paper thin and mostly useless.
DO NOT STAY at any place in Jesmond. Although not the fault of the property managers directly, the location is very undesirable. After having to call the police when I stayed at the other local accomodation a few weeks earlier, I was a little concerned about staying here again. This time, when I arrived back at the accomodation from dinner by Uber, I was greeted by 5 police cars and a large group of police officers in the front driveway and car park. I was told that I would have to wait out on the street until they had dealt with whatever was going on at the accomodation. About 15 mins later I was allowed in.
In addition, there is nowhere to eat within the immediate area, so you will need to travel into Newcastle to find anywhere decent to eat.
Do yourself a favour and don't stay here or anywhere in Jesmond. There are so many better places within Newcastle.

Great property; close to shopp....
We spent 2 nights at the Blue Gum Rd property in Jesmond. I'd originally booked for 3 adults and 1 child but unfortunately due to illness there were just 2 of us,so we had a 3br apartment to ourselves. I was in Newcastle for my graduation and the university was only a few minutes away. Having a large apartment to ourselves, it was obviously very spacious and felt palatial! It was fantastic having the Stockland Shopping Centre right across the road. So convenient! Location location on 2 accounts. The only annoying thing about our stay was that a car was parked right at our front door and kitchen window the whole time. I have no idea whose it was and I felt like I couldn't keep the kitchen blind open incase someone coming to the car would see inside. The car was literally a few feet from the front door. If not for this annoyance I would have given 5 stars
