I stayed at the village hotel for a week on business. I had also purchased the 'Upperdeck' upgrade which gave me free access to the fitness facilities, sky in my room, complimentary bottled water and a complimentary Starbucks drink each day.
The rooms are nothing special compared to some other places I have stayed, and it is not significantly cheaper than some city centre hotels.
The location is great if you are travelling for work in the area and Newcastle city centre is about a 20 min drive away (so bring a car if you plan on visiting the city).
The hotel's bar, restaurant and gym facilities are frequented by non-hotel guest so it can be busy at peaks times and noisy in the evenings.
The restaurant closes quite early on a Sunday evening, which was frustrating as I had travelled quite far and there aren't many other options available in the local area.
The staff are really helpful and cheery! The staff in the Starbucks are particularly nice and make for a great conversation in the morning.
Overall my stay was enjoyable, but I wouldn't return unless it was for business in the area.
Tip: The staff in Starbucks love a good music quiz, come prepared with questions!
