just back from two nights stay at the city road (millennium bridge) premier inn. room was comfy, clean and bathroom nicely fitted all with a new feel. we had a room to the back so nice and quiet but being newcastle we did have one lot of noisy guests on both nights (early morning!) the free parking was a real bonus and situation was great as we were attending concert at sage in gateshead so just a lovely walk over the millennium bridge! didn't eat at the hotel but restaurant seemed to be busy when we passed. someone mentioned walk into town being too long but the Q1 and Q2 bus leaving from the quayside will take you up town and even to the station at a competitive price. will certainly return to this hotel.
