Stayed here for 1 night to sample the delights of the Newcastle night life. Clean rooms, modern hotel. Large car park. Lift access to the floors. A breakfast area which doubles as an Indian restaraunt on an evening - didnt try either on this trip. Perfect for what we needed. A 15 minute walk to the GATE.

Fantastic location for the town centre and the staff extremely helpful, couldn't do enough for us. We Had food in the evening at the hotel which was fantastic, but it seems if you read other Trip Advisor reviews this is always the case. Will certainly be staying again when next in Newcastle.

The room was comfortable and well equipped, with a large bathroom. The hotel is not in the centre, but it only costs 3 Pounds for a taxi to take you there. The lady at reception was really helpful and gave us the number for a cheap taxi company.

This was actually a pretty nice hotel. The receptionist was really good and very friendly and helpful (thanks!) Our room was comfortable and the bathroom very modern and clean, albeit a little small. The location is a little out the way, but we were able to walk back from Grey Street/the town centre in about 20-25 minutes so not really... More

Although about 10 minutes by car from Newcastle Railway Station the Hotel is easily accessible by car from the A1 J75. Pleasantly surprised. Lovely lobby and welcoming host. Nothing appeared too much trouble. Room was a suitable size and the bed was a full size king. Everything was clean tidy and linen, crisp. The Punjabi restaurant on site did not... More

We stayed at the Best Western for a few days while on a cricketing tour, staff was nice and friendly, although they seemed a little unsure about places nearby. The rooms were clean and comfortable, although some rooms were missing hair dryers- that was hardly a matter of concern. The complimentary breakfast lacked variety, but was still decent. I personally... More

After spending the evening in Newcastle we returned to our hotel around 2am in the morning. On arrival we found the main door (only entrance into the hotel) was locked.
