Best value for money in Newcastle. Close to the Quay and all amenities. Staff are very helpful and the rooms very clean. This is definitely a great place to stay. Will be back real soon. Also met really nice locals in the Witherspoon pub just across the road.

Dated, dirty, not like the photos on the website! Even the staff apologise for it! No excuses can be made for appalling rooms with sub standard beds and bathrooms it's less than hostel standards! Don't be fooled by web pics

Stayed for a couple of nights on the third floor. Room was clean and tidy, no issues with noise even though there was a full on karaoke in the bar on the ground floor. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Location is great for going out in town as well as mooching around the waterside (Sage, Baltic etc).

Very impressed with staff, room and breakfast especially for the money. Arrived at 9pm and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. There was a bar that you could take a beer and wine with glasses and ice to your room. The room was a good size and washroom nice large shower stall. Limited toiletries but tea and coffee in...

I booked the waterside on Thursday and noticed that the Hilton was &£119 for the night and the waterside was £105 for the night and in a good location so thought it must be half decent. When I arrived with my boyfriend whose birthday it was, he just laughed and said it was like faulty towers, I didn't see the... More

I agree with what others have said about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Also that the hotel is a bit shabby in places. Subsequent to booking I had a bad fall and needed a hip replacement about 4 weeks before our stay. When I phoned the hotel they were very helpful and offered a room with walk-in shower.... More

A good budget priced hotel. Yes room is a little tired but clean and bathroom looks like it was recently redone. Close to city centre parking available ( as for clear instructions on how to get to it! ) very pleased with breakfast choice and all included. Lots of restaurants veryy close.

The hotel is situated in the heart of the night life at the quayside, its approximately a 10 minute walk from central station. Staff were friendly and the room was spacious and clean and had a good walk in shower with plenty of hot water. The breakfast was also very good. I would definitely stay again.

This hotel is near the tyneside so had a lovely view. Receptionist and staff are polite and very welcoming. Breakfast is good although the second day we didn't get toast or black pudding with no reason as to why not. Room needs updating. There was dent in wall, carpet needs updating and was stringy. Light is the room and bathroom... More
