My daughter and I stayed on 12th April 2014 (Gary Barlow at the Metro Arena! WOW !!). The hotel entrance was very spacious and welcoming. The girl on reception was also welcoming and friendly - a good start. Our room was ready although we had arrived before 2 p.m. It was a fairly small twin to the side of the... More

We stayed here on 4th April 2014 in order to see Dancing on Ice the final tour. After arriving by train it was a nice easy walk to the hotel where we received a very friendly welcome and were pleased to find our room ready even though it was only 1pm. We received a voucher for money off our first... More

I thought the hotel was central, brilliant location and staff were friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was also fine. The major downside for us was how thin the walls were and how noisy it was at night. We knew Newcastle is famous for stag and hen parties but didn't realise just how close this hotel was to the main... More

Four of us went along to the hotel, which on first impressions looks good on the inside. As this was a two course meal, we asked if we could have the main and dessert, to be told that we would have to pay extra for the dessert, the two courses being starter and main. Three of us had the mushroom... More

We stayed with a group of friends. This hotel is located close by the Newcastle central train station and walking distance to the quayside... The service was very average, rooms were noisy and the place needs serious investment.

Lovely old school hotel, great good and a comfy bed. I was on the fourth floor overlooking the train station and taxi rank. Peace and quiet In this town centre hotel on a Thursday night. Plenty of bars restaurants theatres etc close at hand, railway station merely yards away. Looking forward to my next stay.

Went here today on 23rd March on a living Social Voucher, as this was booked for 2.30 we were a bit early and was shown to our table, the waitress showed us the menu and drinks menu, she came back about 10 mins later and took our orders. After about 15 further minutes I had to ask for our bottle... More

Location: Directly opposite Newcastle Central Station and easy to reach from the South by road. Also easy access to Metro system for travelling around the area. Newcastle nightlife within a few yards walk - and it is lively at night! And about 10-15 minutes walk to St. James's Park for the football. Ambience: An old-fashioned railway hotel with two wings....

I stayed here recently for a single night. The service and manner of the staff itself are lovely, they are very friendly and happy to help. The room itself was not so good, I've stayed here a couple of times and every time the room has been weirdly hot without the radiators being on and I can barely open the... More
