My wife and I have just returned from a five day break with Alfa Travel during which we stayed at the Caledonian Hotel in Newcastle. The good impressions started as soon as we entered the hotel. The reception was bright and welcoming. Instead of queuing at the desk to register, addressed envelopes were passed to our group with a key card in. Straight up to our room then. The room was spacious, a small coffee table and two easy chairs near the window and still plenty of room to move round the bed. Room maintenance was excellent. Towels replaced on request, (when left in the bath) and instead of the tiny and almost useless tablets of hotel soap there was a dispenser of good quality liquid soap both above the bath and hand wash basin. The supplies provided for making drinks in the room were of premium quality and could easily be replenished at reception if extra supplies were needed. Although our room was on the road side traffic noise was not intrusive. A friend who traveled with us had a single room and this was also a good size instead of the usual cupboard that passes for a single room.
Food was well prepared and plentiful with good choices of menu items. Breakfast is buffet style with a large selection of both hot and cold items. Dinner was served at table.
The staff throughout were friendly and very helpful.
The hotel, at Jesmond, is only 10/15 minutes from the centre of Newcastle by bus, the stops being very close to the hotel. For those travelling by car there is ample parking at the rear of the hotel where there are also patio areas with outdoor furniture.
Would I stay here again? Certainly if I was in the area.
