There's no getting away from the fact that this brand is of the more basic variety. However I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a) clean b) had everything you wanted. As someone who suffers with a back and hip condition I was dubious about the beds. How wrong I was this was a firm and comfortable bed that... More

I booked this last minute as a weekend shopping break hotel. I arrived at about 17:00hrs on Saturday and was greeted by a friendly, professional lady on reception, she instantly made my family feel welcome. The first impression of the hotel was good as the exterior was well maintained as was the reception area. The lady direct us to our... More

Stayed here on Sunday and Monday night in August. It's in a busy area - but the views from the back are over fields. There is extra glazing in the windows to keep the road noise out which worked really well. Staff are very nice and welcoming. Room standards and hygiene were very good. The breakfast is a buffet which... More

A lovely hotel, room was really spacious and welcoming. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Great check out time so you aren't rushing to be out like most other hotels. Would definitely return.

I get to stay in lots of premier Inns due to work travel. I stay in them as you know what you are getting, wherever you are they are all the same! No they are not. The restaurant next to this one is a taybarn which is just a giant chav buffet of all you can eat. Now the problem... More

Great location for access to the metro centre and Beamish museum. Staff helpful and friendly and Taybarn Restaurant was excellent value for money. My only major complaint was that the twin room I occupied provided a king size plus single bed, the latter being extremely uncomfortable.

Stayed in this hotel twice as my and some friends were going down too Newcastle for the weekend. staff were friendly & very helpful! Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting near the city centre but just outside, it's a 5 minute taxi journey! Shopping is also only 5 minutes along the road.. Got Frankie & Benny's, TGI'S across the road... More

I was in the area on business, and booked a night's accommodation at this Premier Inn. I have stayed once before, about 6 years ago. There are several nearby hotel chains nearby, but i am glad I chose this one. I was warmly greeted by the friendly chap on reception. He told me that as it was a hot day,... More
