Wish I'd read other trip advisors comments on this hotel before booking as I would never have stayed. Smelt damp on arrival, dark and uninviting entrance experience improved marginally by the very pleasant and friendly receptionist (who probably felt sorry for us). The rooms were awful, small, smelly, badly decorated obvious signs of patched up damage on doors and walls.... More

Stayed here for a stag do, the £30 each bond was a bit steep but as we aren't a bunch of idiots there was no issue in getting it back and I understand that stag do groups expect this kinda thing. Room was clean, the hotel itself is a little dated but the staff are friendly and helpful. It's good... More

My husband and I were very disappointed with our stay at this hotel. The pictures tell the story really. The foyer and staircases smelt absolutely awful and when we got to the room, we found it was filthy. There was a thick layer of dust around the edges of the carpets, a disposable razor blade cap in the shower -... More

Great Location overlooking the Quayside and easy access to town. Free parking is a real bonus !! Good room, friendly staff. Shame for us that some building work was going on at the time and the smell of paint was not nice!! A really good place to use as a base to explore the history, beauty and nightlife of Newcastle...

Stayed in the waterside hotel for one night and what a pleasant experience it was. The room was very modern, spacious and clean with a large walk in shower. The staff were brilliant and the location was spot on, only a 5 minute walk from the city centre. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a perfect location and offers free parking (a rare thing for city centre accommodation), and breakfast was included in the relatively low rate of £55p/n (double room). As far as being a place to rest your head, it was okay. However, we didn’t have the best overall experience. The lady on reception was lovely when we... More

This hotel is situated in a excellent location and provides some parking but it is definitely not secure. The staff are very friendly but unfortunately the room was very tired and and the floor and top bedding were stained. The room we had at the front of the hotel was small (cramped) extremely noisy and we couldn't shut the windows... More

Stayed here for my son's graduation. Perfect location. Super, helpful, friendly staff. Very comfy beds, although decor tired. Smell in entrance & stairs is awful & flickering light needed changing. Advertised as free parking, but £5 charge enforced, although this seemed reasonable value & hotel gave us 24 hours plus.

I just spent the weekend here and loved the place. It's basic and tired but has everything you need, clean bedding, towels, tea, coffee, Tv, Free Wifi, bar and a lovely little Breakfast room. Staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast spot on. Great location to bars and restaurants and a 10 minuet walk into the town. There is... More
