This is a newly built and modern hotel in the city centre. Our room was brilliant with a very comfortable king-szed bed (it was a King Room) and an amazing bathroom and shower.
The staff were all lovely although we were woken by a knock from room service trying to deliver someone else's food to our room.
BUT...the hotel "bar" is a noisy sports bar. On the Saturday night we stayed it was full of loud music, loud people, sticky floors and was seriously understaffed. There is nowhere at all for guests to relax with a nice drink after an evening out or indeed instead of an evening out.
Breakfast is served in the same beer-scented bar and costs £15 per head so we passed and went off to the Fat Hippo in Jesmond for a superb full english!
It's not a cheap hotel and this is a major flaw. As a veteran of umpteen city centre hotels this is a shortcoming which will prevent me from booking here again.
What a shame..!
