Stayed one night for work. Reception efficient and friendly, all clean and pleasant if slightly characterless. Double room was an ok size, TV options etc were good, you can plug in your own devices for the entertainment system thoug I didn't investigate this.
Room very clean and nicely decorated in a dark colour scheme. Choice of pillows. Bathroom good, shower worked well. Juice /water provided. Lots of lighting choices but none very bright, e.g. Full length mirror near the door in a dark corner, but no way of lighting it up. I dried my hair in a fairly dim desk light.
Breakfast fine, reasonable amount of choice and hot food seemed fairly fresh. Tiny quibble that only sugar available is in lump form thwarting my (childish, I know) habit of sprinkling sugar in my cereal.
Location wise, I walked with my case from Jesmond metro, not too far and easy to find. However there's not a lot in the immediate vicinity, it's not in the heart of Jesmond with its shops, restaurants as such. I guess that is probably walkable, just not visible.
So, small quibbles but I would be happy to stay again.
