I stayed 2 nights for a hen weekend. It's a cheap hotel, very nice staff can't complain about it. When we arrived to the hotel we had a quick check in, rooms seemed clean but plenty of dust on the bedside table, next thing is coffee and tea tray I didn't like kenco coffee would rather suggest it to change...

I've come to Newcastle and stayed in the Holiday Inn Express Newcastle because it's really close to the Newcastle Central Station (NCS). You can walk from there and it's 5 mins. The hotel is very good, very clean, attendants were sympathetic and friendly. The room was good for the price, it had Cable TV, small desk, small sofa, great bed... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am saddened to read you would never stay at a Holiday Inn again. Whilst Holiday Inns are a full service hotel,we at Holiday Inn Express do not provide room service of food or drink. Kind regards Lee Anderson More

Easy to find in a good location from the city centre and various places to eat. Multi-story next door that's free over night or £5 for the day. Breakfast was ok, wasn't expecting much as it was inclusive with the rate. As we were staying with young children and it seemed a popular choice with stags/hens I requested an out... More

Modern hotel in a superb location (just 5 minutes walk form the central station). Staff very helpful, rooms comfortable and clean and the complimentary breakfast more than adequate. No hesitation in recommending

Stayed at Holiday inn Express for two nights when I was in Newcastle for a Newcastle match. Perfect location, only a 10min walk to the stadium, and even less for shopping. Free, simple breakfast.father&son (10)

Our double room was spacious and clean with everything you might need - including free wifi. Free breakfast had something (and plenty of it!) for everyone - cereals, croissants, cheese, scrambled eggs, sausages, baked beans, muffins.... Position... More
