In a great location with a reasonably priced carpark next door.Pleasant rooms and a good breakfast buffet thrown in plus nice friendly staff. Newcastle seems to have a shortage of budget hotels so this one always gets booked up early I think.

Rooms were small but clean. Staff were great- helpful & knowledgable. Young waiter at breakfast was cheerful & industrious Only small problem was safe which couldn't open on the last day but maintenance solved the problem by prising it open. I'd stay here again

We had booked this hotel for a saturday night and when we were told on check in that ear plugs were available - we were geared up for a fitful nights sleep. How wrong we were - as we actually slept in due to the quietness of the corridor and had a great sleep in very comfy beds. My friend... More

Holiday inn express review The hotel room looked better than the cabin on the boat, so we were happy with everything a little more luxurious or bigger than the cabin. The bed was good to sleep on, but they were separated when we arrived here. We had to put them together ourselves. There was a door to our room from... More

Spent one night here for a business meeting the next day at St James Park. Plesently suprised by cleanliness, decor, size of room and facilities. Not sure why people have marked this hotel down. Would definitely recommend and use again. This is the 3rd HIE I have used this year. Pleased with each.
