Jurys Inn Newcastle
I have stayed at The Jury's Inn twice recently for business as it is one of the favoured hotels of the company I work for. On my first stay I was placed in the family room which was really spacious considering it was just me in there and the second time I was placed in a double room. Both rooms were nice and clean, quiet and had good facilities.
The room has a flat screen TV with some free view channels, a hair dryer and a kettle with complimentary tea and coffee. The bathrooms were a good size with a bath and shower. The shower was really powerful and the water was always hot. The pillows were comfortable and the heating was really easy to control. You could hear the odd noise from downstairs if someone was talking loudly but other than that the room was really quiet.
The hotel does not offer complimentary parking. There are two car parks really close by. The first is a multi story which is across the road from the hotel near the concert arena. This is the more expensive option but your car will be under cover. The second option is the car park favoured by the hotel. It is just behind the hotel and looks like a car wash. Drive into the car wash and you will see the sign for the Jury's Inn parking. You drive down a small slope and park up. It costs £8.00 for 24 hours of parking. They are quite relaxed, I told them I had to leave be car an extra hour and a half due to a meeting and I wasn't charged any extra. Both times I parked my car there.
The hotel offers a breakfast buffet with everything from sausages and bacon to cereal and yoghurt. Tea, coffee and orange juice were also offered. The breakfast was really nice and the restaurant area was pleasant and comfortable.
The hotel also has a small costa coffee near the main entrance.
Unique Quality: The hotel is across the road from the metro concert arena so if you are heading to a concert in Newcastle this would be a really great place to stay.
Directions: Near the Metro Arena
You'll know you're in a party city!
We booked a room here for three nights on a recent weekend visit to Newcastle as there was a good deal available on Booking.com. We had a bit of a mixed experience, with some plusses but also some downsides, although not all of these of the hotel’s making.
The good points were the fairly large room and bathroom, good location about five minutes’ walk from the Central Station (note, not the one or two minutes they claim on their website and in publicity), free WiFi and general state of décor and cleanliness. The less good aspects were a rather small and slightly saggy bed and some really noisy guys in the room next to ours. OK, Newcastle is a “party city” and you can expect some disturbance on a weekend night wherever you stay, but these two were exceptionally bad, and although someone came up from the front desk to ask them to keep it down, it made little difference. They were noisy around 1.00 am, went out again and returned still shrieking with laughter at 5.15 am. In fairness to the hotel, when we asked at the front desk the next morning whether these two were checking out that day (planning to request a change of room if not), the manager on duty was very apologetic, assured us that had already gone, and offered us free breakfast on that morning and the next, which we were pleased to accept. The next night, a Saturday, was only marginally better as, while we didn't have noisy guests in that adjoining room, there was a succession of them passing along the corridor and frequently stopping to talk very loudly, with shrieks of inebriated laughter, apparently right outside our door.
So if you’re looking for a decent quality hotel near the station, do consider this one. But if coming at the weekend, bring your ear plugs and be prepared for potential noise even so.
[The breakfast by the way was OK – reasonable cooked selection, cereals and fruit, juice, toast and pastries, teas and coffee.]
Directions: Turn left out of the station and walk towards the Life science centre. Walk across the centre’s forecourt, cross the road at the lights and you’ll see the hotel in front of you
On Gatesheads waterfront
This is rather an ugly looking hotel on the south bank of the Tyne next to the Baltic. Great location and near the Millennium Bridge for a short walk into Nrewcastle city centre. A 10 minute downhill from Gateshead centre and the nearest Metro stop but there is a local bus with a 10 minute frequency.
Inside the hotel is far better than its basic outside design and rooms are of a good standard but with my usual complaint about Jurys nationwide - no free wi fi, no biscuits in the room and no room extras such as a bedside clock.
However the hotel is recommended - the restaurant is fine and the breakfast buffet excellent. Book in and out is easy but the restaurant is overcrowded when the hotel is full and the bar has to be used for the overspill.
Directions: Next to the Baltic on the south bank of the Tyne.
Quality hotel in busy location
I stayed here for just one night but it is hotel with a great quality feel to it. The rooms are well appointed with comfortable beds and a good quality bathroom. There are tea and coffee facilties too.
If there are faults it is that the room was rather cold but the restaurant was too hot in the morning for breakfast and was virtually unbearable.
The food in the restaurant is very good though. In the evening I had a lamb terrine for starter with a salad and then pork with mashed potato and vegetables for a main course at £14.95 (09/12).
The hotel is close to the station but in the middle of some dubious looking pubs and a busy road system. The views from the rooms is not good.
However this is a quality hotel with friendly and efficient staff and very good value for the price charged.
Directions: Turn left out of Central Station and then left again into St James Gate - the hotel is on the right.
a nice place to stay
i had a fine stay here, bearing in mind i only came in drunk and went to bed. accomodation was good. kettle in room leaked badly and they had no replacement, other than that no probs. i would stay here again. short walk and taxi ride from big bars etc
Unique Quality: nice modern building
Directions: tucked in out of sight!
We needed to deliver a car to AVIS, and arrived in Newcastle almost at closing time. Trying to find the hotel, even with a map, we didn't succeed. With the time urging, we drove to the rent-a-car stand, but arrived 15 minutes late. The employee was still there, and, gently, accepted the delivery out of time. Then we asked for the way to the hotel. We knew it was near, but didn't know if it is was near enough to walk (with the luggage) or needing a taxi.
The guy didn't hesitate. He invited us again to enter the car, and drove was straight to the hotel's door. It is in a secluded square, and that´s why, passing in the adjacent streets, we couldn't find it. Later we noticed that the hotel is well identified in the top of the building. But, coming by car, it would be better a sign at street level.
Well, once inside the hotel pleased us. It is a good mid price hotel, well located, and the service was efficient and nice.
City Centre Hotels
Never stopped in these hotels but these are 4/5* hotels in city centre. They will be a bit pricey but if u r comin for a one off stay with friends it might not work out too bad if you share rooms. Apart from hotels mentioned above, the nearest hotel to all the action would be the Swallow hotel on Newgate Street . This hotel is near Eldon Square shopping centre for through the day and right amongst the main bar area of Newcastle`s Bigg Market and
Quayside for night time.
Unique Quality: If you want fancy hotel with all features of pool,sauna views and amenities then the Copthorne or Malmaison hotels down by the Quayside are the ones for you, but they come at a price.
Jurys Inn will be better priced as it is approx 0.5 mile away from bar areas, but this is a newly built complex.
Swallow hotel has recently been refurbished but 3*prices may be high because of its location near all amenities.
Directions: Quayside/Bigg Market
Don't award the architect any prizes
A competently run three-star hotel, with good sized rooms and nicely decortated rooms.
Jurys Inn's began as an irish company but are now expanding in the UK and the US. They can generally be relied upon to come up with the goods at a reasonable price. It is however always worth looking at their website for special offers. They tend to come up on a fairly regular basis.
My only complaint with the hotel is the general design. It is sited near the LIFE centre and Central Station, but very few rooms look out over the Tyne valley and it's bridges.
In addition the rooms at the rear of the hotel suffer from road noise from the nearby road bridge.
Avoid the bar - the food is distinctly uninspiring.
Unique Quality: None as such, but it is situated on Scotswood road which is at the centre of the gay Village. (if that is any use to you)
- To be fair this consists of little more than a few bars with names like 'Switch' and Sven's adult bookstore. Rather surprising to see the England football manager flogging dirty books I thought.
Directions: From central station, cross over times Square at the LIFE centre. Head down Scotswood road - it's then on your left.
