Stayed here for 1 night whilst in the area for business. Bit of a hidden gem! Parking is limited but it is right next to a council run car park with reasonable charges. Upgraded on check in. Great check in - no hassle. Lovely room, comfy king size bed, quick Wi-Fi. Meal in bar upstairs was really good and plentiful.... More

I was located in the new wing where the Rooms I was told were the best in the hotel. The room was lovely and clean although a bit depressing with a dark red carpet, dark red walls and dark furniture to match. This was not helped by very poor lighting and a very small window that let very little light... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am sorry that you were disturbed by the wedding party and that the room décor was not to your liking. These are our corporate colours but if you return we could arrange for extra lighting for your room. Kind regards Joy More

We booked this hotel on laterooms.com and couldn't have been more surprised, the reviews and pictures don't do it justice! Park right outside, 5-10 minutes from Newcastle/metro by car. We were instantly upgraded rooms for free and the hotel staff were very friendly! The room was newly refurbished, flat screen TV, king sized bed, modern bathroom, everything you need! Would... More

Very close to the metro, lovely staff and great room! We got upgraded for free which was even better! One thing I would say is for the curtains to be longer so they don't let the light in. Surprisingly quiet considering its next to a busy road. Definitely worth going

The hotel was great with extremely friendly and professional staff. The room was great but to be honest it was the largest Suite, which is on the back of the hotel so no noise. All in all i enjoyed my stay and would definately recommend.
