It's only 5 mins drive to metro centre and only 10 mins into centre of Newcastle and about £10 in taxi so perfect for a night out without staying... More

Right from checking in we couldn't fault this hotel. Fast and efficient service meant we were in our room in minutes, room 405 was large and spacious, with a soft and comfy bed, contemporary design with views through the trees over Newcastle. It was clean and well maintained as was the rest of the hotel. Food was delicious, hubby had... More

Spent 2 nights in this hotel, clean, friendly staff but the stairs were a bit of a problem. The drawers in the bedroom which we mentioned on departure kept opening bit unsafe in the night I kept bumping into them!! The views were fantastic, the bar very friendly. We opted to breakfast in the nearby pub The Bridle Path 1/2... More

We went to the bar that over looks the centre and then had an amazing meal at pacos! The belly pork starter and the steak main was amazing! Room was lovely and clean and... More

Could hear the dj and recognised most tunes!!The base was booming through the floors / walls. Tried to turn up the telly to drown out the noise, no joy! Not good for a family staying but ok for younger people who are out on the town.

Situated just outside of Newcastle, this was a bit quieter than the hustle of the town centre, which is fine by me. There are a few car parking spaces outside if you get here early, otherwise there is a pay and display opposite, but it is only £1 per day to park. Room was fine, clean, large bathroom, extra large... More
