“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Gr8 hotel lovely boutique rooms with stand alone roll top bath and Monsoon shower, 1st class welcome from reception staff member. Only downsides we did not like the conjoining door between the room and next door. You could hear people talking and moving around, luckily our neighbours went out to explore, same as us! Car park overnight (thought this was a bit steep) is £10 per night for on street parking when you can park overnight for £4.00 in an enclosed multistory car park nearby, only found this out on the walk back to the hotel. Nice bar, super comfy seatinge in lounge area. We would return.

We recently visited this hotel and were disappointed. The corridor our room opened onto had the most dreadful sewage smell - possibly from the nearby canal. In addition there was a fee of £10 per night to park in the hotel car park. This seemed excessive as the hotel is not even centrally located. We have visited a number of this chain of hotels and initially were very impressed. Now the attitude seems to be to make as much money as possible.

Stayed for one night on a special Sunday deal. Superior room was spacious and comfy with nice furnishings. Monsoon shower was nice and powerful. Cocktails were excellent but the food in the bistro was a little disappointing. Meals average for the high price tag. Overall nice for a special treat.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I had a single night here recently and was hugely impressed by the rooms. Wonderful comfy beds with tasteful furnishings. The room we had was also very spacious with air conditioning.
The bar area is very nice with a great selection of wines and beers to choose from.

My only gripe was the price.....not of the rooms but the breakfasts. £14.95 is a fair amount of money to pay for an english breakfast, especially when they are not exactly on the large size and their standard breakfast is around £12.95 which is a lot for orange juice, tea with a selection of muesli cereals and pastries.

Despite the minor gripe over pricing (heck, if you don't want it then dont order it) I would certainly recommend the rooms and the staff where all very friendly.

Room Tip: Mention if it's a birthday or special occasion as I think they will offer an upgrade

Beautiful hotel, good service, friendly, great location. First visit to Newcastle and it couldn't have gone better thanks largely to the choice of hotel which is positioned far enough from the city centre to provide a quiet night's sleep but close enough to explore the Quayside and shopping. Was sad to leave and cannot wait to return

I had a chance to stay here for one night for work. I found the hotel cozy and warm while the rooms spacious, modern, and well-appointed. I had a great night's sleep here and would go back if I am up in Newcastle again. I also dined at the bistro...loved the food, service.

Generally ok, but it did feel like they were trying to squeeze more and more money out of you. For example, there was a botle of red wine in the room, with an price tag (£16.95) in huge text. Not quite sure what they were trying to achieve but it just rubbed it in. They also try to charge you £10 for parking beside the street outside.

The service at breakfast was appalling; for example, one of the party had to wait 20 minutes for his kippers, another order was totally forgotten and I was never even asked. Reception only superficially interested when i complained and laughed it off.

Glad I wasn't paying for it myself.
