Fantastic customer service, the old style of caring for customers. Friendly, bright and vibrant office and well informed employees. Located in an excellent position. Internet banking and phone app are okay, but need a few improvements. for example, customers should be able to create new billers in the app and not only on the internet banking side. Highly recommend Newcastle Permanent.

Aren't a huge amount of fee's, just hard to deal

I feel like they're the only bank that think it's the 90's. Poor fraud investigations, high fee's, won't give you your money unless you call 24 hours in advance.

I love this bank because it is local and convenient. I live in the Hunter area and the university I attend has so many Newcastle Permanent ATMS, it's great. Since it's a proper part of the community, the Bank Tellers are always friendly. The cons are it's very hard to find an ATM or a bank outside the Hunter/Newcastle are.
