Had a weekend in Newcastle to visit relatives and stayed at the Falcons Nest Travelodge. Could do with a bit of TLC in the bathrooms but overall it was very clean, comfortable and basic. Tea and Coffee available in the rooms which was very handy, not always found in budget hotels.
The location was very good, handy for a quick trip into the city or to the airport, we drove up from Gloucester.
Bed was very comfortable, which is very important for a single nights stay, you don't want to be tired for the return trip of a 300 miles drive the next day!
The adjoining 'Falcons Nest' pub restaurant was very good.
