Advantages: On the Quayside, Romatic, Beautiful

As you walk in you are transferred to another place. The glass atrium shows off one of the spectacular features of the hotel, it's view. The River Tyne allows for a tranquel background for a relaxing weekend break.
When ever we go to Newcastle this is one of our favourite places to stay. The setting provides a rich and romatic setting that lets love blossom and the world around you to melt away.

We have stayed in two types of rooms, Junior Suite and Superior Rooms-Quayside.
These rooms overlook the Quay. They are very large with a king size bed and a complete sitting area. We also had the conniisseur service which included bathrobes, chocolates and mineral water. The bathroom was extremely large and relaxing. Romance definately can happen in this room.
This room also overlooks the Quay and the bridges. A King size bed and mini bar are nice touches in this room. The room is not nearly as large and the suites but large enough for 2 people to be comfortable.
All the rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean.
Resturants and Bars:
In the hotel there is Harry's Informal Bar, Harry's Resturant and Le Rivage.
We have only ever eatten at Harry's Resturant for Breakfast which is amazing! The choice of food ranges from continental to cook to order fry ups!
The hotel is located on the Quay side so nights out are within easy walking distance.
Other attractions are:
Theatre Royal 0.5 Miles
Metroland, Gateshead 3 Miles SW
Metrocentre, Gateshead 3 Miles SW
Newcastle Football Club 1 mile Newcastle Falcon's Rugby Club - Home of Jonny Wilkinson 10
1- Call and book before arriving! Tell them how the place was suggested to you and what deals they have on.
2- Also, weekends tend to be cheaper than weekdays because a lot of business men/women use the hotel.
3- Pack a bottle of champagne and a box of chocolates. You won't regret it!
Sometimes you just need to get away for a day or two. This is definately a place to take a break!
