VERY rude staff. No hot water for the 2 days I was there - when I complained all I got was grief. Didn't bother with the breakfast as it looked that bad. Was locked out of the hotel at midnight, had to wait ten minutes to get in and was received by yet another rude member of staff. I had... More

The rooms are all the same layout with two single beds a dressing table and a good size bathroom with a full size... More

Most hotel's in Newcastle were booked up so I ended up in this one... The reception area was nice but the rest of the hotel most definitely is not! However we were told to go up to the top floor where I was pleasantly surprised to find brand new decor and a complete renovation. Our room was beautiful inside with... More

The hotel has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Made to feel very welcome. No hassle or fuss and in a good location for some good restaurants. My girlfriend for her jewelry and the maid found it and handed it in to reception who rang us to tell us. Very honest staff. Thank you

I lived in Newcastle for 3 years as a student and during one of those years I lived in Jesmond and because it is a decent area I expected the hotels to be decent too. The only good things about the hotel were the location (city centre prices were sky high so Jesmond was the obvious 2nd choice), the receptionists... More

I was put off the hotel when reading the reviews but the hotel was already booked so there was little I could do. However, I am glad I didn't choose somewhere else as the prices were reasonable, the walk into the city centre is short and the staff are very friendly. I booked two rooms for 4 people for 2... More
