This is a very convenient place to stay if visiting Newcastle. We had a lovely greeting at reception when we arrived, and nothing seemed too much trouble for her. The room was spotless and well equipped. The only down side is the noise from the lorry park. The room was hot if you closed the window, and noisy if you... More

This travelogue is situated conveniently on the A1 M northbound for visiting Newcastle and surrounding areas. Very modern, room and bathroom spotlessly clean. Bed very comfortable. friendly staff who were very helpful especially Shirley who took time to phone before we arrived to explain the parking situation.

This is a terrific Travelodge, Jessica at the desk was fantastic. Very friendly and super efficient, she gave us directions to a local Italian restaurant which was fantastic, I have reviewed it as well. This was a better than usual Travelodge experience, it was clean, warm and friendly AND free parking. AND the superb Jessica.

Nice newly refurbished lodge but we had a lot of lorry noise right through the night. Notice other reviews mention how quiet it is here so must depend on room location. Tv wasn't properly set up. No guide working on tv and all channels on unusual numbers (eg bbc1 on 4) no locks on bathroom doors for some reason (blanked... More

Second time I've stayed in this Travelodge, and always got a really good price - maybe it's because people assume it will be really noisy being so close to the A1 - however it's not! Lovely big rooms both times I've stayed, and you don't hear the road at all. Rooms clean and tidy, reception quite welcoming and staff always... More

This must be one of the older Travelodges which have yet to be updated. The rooms are clean and tidy. The beds are the old ones though, so not as comfortable as the new ones. There is no option of being able to have radio on the TV as this doesn't work. This Travelodge is just off the A1 northbound.... More

A good price for a clean, very pleasant room and, though next to a motorway, quiet! The location is a little basic but the usual service area food is available or a couple of goo restaurants within a couple of miles of the 'lodge. One slight problem; the TV reception I had was poor so don't rely on it to... More

Visiting friends in Newcastle, stayed here for a night. We arrived just after midnight and were welcomed by a cheerful receptionist Ruth, who check us in and ensure that she will around if we needs anything in the room. She opened the door and shown us the right direction to our room. The room was very clean, newly decorated to... More
