Had a fantastic time in Newcastle. The Waterside Hotel was an excellent choice. Reasonably priced, great room and superb breakfast. Well worth a visit. Will definately be back. Staff very friendly and could not do enough for you. Hotel very centrally placed for the town centre. Bit of a hill to climb to get there, but well worth it. There... More

Good value for money hotel in great location on the Quayside with plenty of restaurants on the doorstep as the hotel is only bed and breakfast. Girls on reception and in the dining rooms are very friendly and the quality of food is okay. Rooms beginning to show signs of wear and tear and need a little tlc. However the... More

We arrived at The Waterside on Saturday afternoon having read some bad reviews on our drive down and feeling a little worried. The Hotel is well located for the bars and City Centre but is above a Jimmy's bar which we had read was the cause of noise and distrubed sleep for other people. The receptionist was really lovely and... More

My first trip here was as a teen back in the 90's and I returned here for a recent weekend break with my wife. The hotel has become a little jaded in the 15 years that have passed and is in dire need of a bit of TLC. There is a distinct smell of damp in the hallways but fortunately... More

We stayed for 2 nights last week. We recieved a lovely warm welcome from the receptionist, who instantly made us feel welcome. I strongly believe this hotel is fantastic value for money; we don't know anywhere else in Newcastle that you can get a room which includes breakfast, free internet and free parking for around £55 per night. We felt... More

We stayed here for one night. Our room was bright and had a good view. Good supply of tea, coffee and hot chocolate, as well as shampoo etc. Agree that furniture had seen better days, but bed was comfortable and breakfast was good. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night. The place was good altogether, but there were some problems when you looked at the details. The room we stayed in was bright. The view from the window was great, with the Tyne Bridge right in focus - really awesome. The bed was really comfy and big, which was also good. And there was... More

I checked in around 6 pm and was given a twin room. The room had a pungent smell. The toilet was broken. the tiles of the bathroom were coming out. There was no toilet paper. WHen I sat to watch TV, the cells had leaked which is poetntially poisonous. I asked for an Ironing board and got a burnt Ironing... More
