I am a regular visitor to Newcastle and my favourite, the Hotel du Vin, was full so I came back here again. Had a quirky little room in the roof which was quite fun and a bit roomier than one I had had on a previous visit. Only watch out is that I reckon it could get hot on a sunny summer day. This time I ate in the restaurant here and it was really excellent. I had the Garden menu, 3 courses for 27 pounds. Great steak, with well cooked veggies - Pak Choi-my fave. Varied cheese selection and the dessert that my friend had was delightful a little chocolate gateau. So a thumbs up, in this respect it edges the Hotel Du Vin where the food is not as good as it used to be. And one more positive, and a change from last time, they have free wireless throughout. On the downside, the service is a little bit stuck-up, not as friendly as it could be, and in-attentive in the bar area.
So next time, if I have a choice where will I go? ...... Hotel Du Vin. Two things swing it, firstly the location of the Hotel Du Vin and easy access to Quay Side and town centre. But most of all the team running the Hotel Du Vin are fabulous and make the stay. But if the Hotel Du Vin is full, I will look forward to a good meal and happily come back here!
PS Ilford road metro is only 5 to 10 mins walk away, closer that I had expected. So if you want to save some taxi fares from the airport or town it is quite doable
