ABOUT THE HOTEL
This is a decent sized hotel, it has 274 bed rooms ranging from double to family rooms. One plus point I have found in the past with this hotel is that they do offer several triple rooms, that are available to 3 adults sharing. All rooms have a bathroom complete with complimentary toiletries. Flat screen tv's which all have freeview on them. Tea and Coffee and a kettle. Wifi, not sure on current pricing but it's not cheap unfortunately. Air con for those really hot summer days lol. And a rarity in some hotels these days, a hairdryer! Gasp Horror lol.
The hotel does not offer room service, however there is a decent restaurant and bar which now also sells costa coffee.
The lobby of the hotel is really smart but the rooms are a little more generic and basic, however they are comfortable and clean. The beds are quite firm but I am yet to have a bad night sleep in one.
I think the best thing about this hotel is it's location, it is visible from the station and take no more than 1-2 minutes to walk from the station. This is a big plus if you are on a budget and do not want to rely on taxi's.
This hotel is also only minutes walk from the Newcastle Arena, so perfect if you are attending an event there.
The main city centre is about a 5 minute walk to the main shopping streets.
It is located in an area with several bar's and near the rail lines, however I am yet to have a night disturbed by noise from outside.
Pricing at this hotel can really vary drastically so shop around , I have paid as little as £39 on a Sunday to over £100 when something is on at the arena.
This hotel will let you check in early if they have the rooms ready and they will also have the option for late check out on a Sunday.
Various pillows and bedding options available upon request.
