Typical HIE hotel – in other words, they’re all the same. Of course, that’s the idea. You know exactly what to expect for your money.

Clean, comfortable, quiet, well designed & pleasant rooms. We got all of that.

Newcastle has a reputation as a party town, with squads of marauding drunks (male and female) staggering around seeking sex and/or oblivion. As we were there over a bank holiday weekend (high risk, in other words) to try to avoid this, we chose an out of town hotel.

We did spot a couple of squads of drunks on their way out for the night (just as we were getting ready for bed), but we had no noise problems at all. Apart from my son complaining about my snoring, of course. We can’t hold HIE responsible for that…

The hotel is about 3 miles west of the city centre, close to the A1 (the main north/south road). It was 5 minutes to drive in and out. Its on a business park, also occupied by KFC, TGI Friday and Frankie & Bennie. Plenty of choice for food, right on the doorstep (if you eat that kind of stuff). There is a pub as well, but oddly, it was closed on Sunday night when I needed it the most!

Breakfast at HIE is always a limited cold buffet – cereal, toast, croissants. I could just about live with it, if only they could arrange decent coffee. Only machine made stuff available. Yuk.

The hotel has a limited bar service.

£55 on Sunday night. £65 on Saturday. Twin room, double occupancy. Both include breakfast.

Unique Quality: Reliable quality.
Quiet.
When I checked out, one reception person managed to deal with 3 check outs all at the same time, using 2 different PCs, whilst remaining poised and pleasant to all. Very impressive.

Directions: Exit the A1 at the A694/A695 sign posted for Blaydon, Consett & Newcastle. Follow the sign for Blaydon & Newcastle. Turn right onto the A1114, then left onto Clasper Way. Look out for the TGI Friday sign. Its behind TGI Friday.

Good hotel, a little off the beaten track

We stayed at this hotel between Christmas a New Years for 2 nights. Its a ten minute walk from the Metrocentre, however this becomes 20-25 minutes if there is a lot of traffic on the main roads between the hotel and the Metrocentre. With the sales on it was quite hectic on the streets.

The other thing to watch out for is the buses. If you buy an all day ticket with one bus company (e.g. Stagecoach), it is not valid on Arriva or Go-North East buses. We ended up paying a lot on the first day between bus companies and the Metro before we worked it all out.

Apart from all this, the hotel itself is very modern, new and clean. Worth a stay especially if you are driving (plenty of parking).
