Great location, clean rooms but the windows are a bit of a problem - don't open wide enough or allow enough air in the room. Had to change rooms due to broken toilet, situation unfortunate but unavoidable - Staff very helpful. Would defiantly stay here again!

We stayed in this hotel august bank holiday weekend, the hotel is in a great location especially if you travel by train. I agree with some of the previous reviews " their can be some noise outside at night" but the hotel is great and the staff are fantastic. The breakfast is very good, the chef will cook you eggs...

It is a functional hotel which is opposite the train station. Near to the city centre and Chinatown. Has a car park that you need to pay. Breakfast is box standard. Housekeeping could be more vigilant. We have to call reception to get toiletries and tea bags which should have been topped up.

The thistle hosted my best friends wedding last Saturday 9th August. It was a brilliant day. The staff were always smiling very friendly. Food was first class. I would most certainly recommend this hotel.

Stayed one night for a business trip. Staff very helpful and room was very good - Executive Rm 436. Electric shaving point is in the main room, not the bathroom but did not cause to much of a problem. The only issue was that there was a bar on the street opposite and that was noisy for most of the... More

There are road works outside and they start very early even on a Sunday. I would stay again as I did think it was... More

The hotel is located on walkig distance to the centre and near by bars and restaurants at quai side. Room is a bit small and noisy. Great large bed, for a good night sleep. The full english breakfast was superb!! Very friendly staff. Good choice for a stay in Newcastle Rob de Bruin from Holland

Had a very nice evening staying at the Thistle Newcastle City Centre. I was greeted by a wonderful team of staff, whilst enjoying my evening meal. Kim and Dave the Chef's were excellent cooks with Louise the waitress greeting us with pleasant smiles and helpfulness. The hotel it self - the bed was very comfortable but was not very happy...
