NICE, QUIET AND ON THE TYNE

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 27, 2012


I found myself here on business and it was ok. Had I paid myself I might have gone elsewhere, but it’s reasonable. The hotel is kind of 'middle aged'. Not new and not too old for a complete upgrade. My room was nice with a great view over the River Tyne and my bed and pillows were excellent. The mini bar was cold, the TV worked, the bathroom functional and I had a nice table and chairs overlooking the river. You could easily work from your room.

The gym was old and worn out. It worked ok and the Jacuzzi was hot. Really nice. The pool was ok and the dressing rooms flooded.

The hotel is healthy walk to everything in the city, but just around the corner from the Castle itself and not far from the main train station.

Parking is in a chargeable car park that is not cheap.

Enjoy !

Unique Quality:
* Great views of the river
* Gym, pool and jacuzzi
* Ok restaurant
* Walkable to town
* Nice, but slightly dated rooms
* Expensive car parking

Great location by the river

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 22, 2012

This hotel has a great location on the Quayside, far enough from the lively bars etc for noise not to be a problem, but within walking distance (albeit up a steep hill or long flight of steps) of the city centre. We stayed here for five nights recently and were pretty pleased on the whole with our large room with a view of the river. We felt we had good value for money here, though with a little effort the hotel could be even more impressive.

Our room was in need of decoration (which I gather from the manager’s comments on Trip Advisor is planned). The carpet was threadbare in places and the furniture and bathroom fittings a little tired-looking for a four star hotel. The king-size bed was actually two singles pushed together and because of the age of the mattresses it was impossible not to have a gap between them. But for us the generous size and great view more than compensated for these issues. We had space to spread out (we both wanted to get odd pieces of work done during our stay) and to relax and watch some TV on a couple of the evenings.

We were also pleased to have onsite parking and wifi, but it’s a shame that the hotel feels it has to charge for these, especially the wifi which I think in a four star hotel could be included these days. At least the £5 per day for wifi is per room, not per person, so we could both work at the same time, but with the £5 per day for parking too, that added £50 to the cost of our five night stay.

We decided not to bother with the breakfast here at all. It costs a hefty £14.95 per person, and is served buffet style. If you’re someone who likes to pile your plate high you might get reasonable value from this, but neither of us wants to eat a large breakfast except very occasionally, and in any case these buffets are usually disappointing – eggs in particular don’t take kindly to sitting under a hot lamp for hours. So instead we went out to one of several cafés in the locality, which was only a minor hardship.

One bonus here is the onsite swimming pool and leisure club, although like our room, areas of this had also seen better days and would benefit from a spruce up. The pool though was well-maintained it seemed, and was never busy when we visited. We also made use of the steam room and I would have liked to use the sauna but that was closed for repairs throughout our stay as was the spa bath – a shame.

Despite the minor reservations above I can definitely recommend this hotel providing you don’t mind having to climb the hill or catch a bus when you want to go into the city centre. Personally I think that’s a small price to pay for what has to be one of the nicest locations of any hotel in Newcastle.

Unique Quality: The river views are the big bonus here. I love being by water and the Newcastle Quayside is one of the great cityscapes in this country.

Directions: There’s a map and good directions on the hotel’s website

Go on.....treat yourself!

Not exactly Newcastle's cheapest accommodation, but if you fancy a treat, it's worth it!! All rooms have a view of the river, and you're just a short stagger from all the nightlife on the Quayside.

Unique Quality: Views are superb, both from the rooms and from the swimming pool!
The bar is a pleasant place to relax after a hard day's shopping, before you head off out for the night!

Directions: Head upstream from the bridges, and you can't miss it!
