Located in central Newcastle a easy short walk from the station. Check in was swift and very friendly.
I had a room on the fourth floor which was well sized, comfy and clean; double bed, sofa, desk, TV, tea and coffee etc. Bathroom again a good size with a walk in shower (so much better than over bath) and quality towels.
Breakfast the usual Holiday Inn Express fare presented as a buffet.
Overall a very pleasant stay in a good hotel with friendly efficient staff at a good price.
