In my opinion a good airport hotel needs to be within walking distance of the airport...none of this 'get a shuttle it's 5 mins away' I've had some 20 minute 'five minute' journeys!
It took around 40 seconds towalk from Newcastle Airport to the hotel. I arrived early in the morning and my room wasn't ready but I was offered a coffee, a cookie and use of the Business Centre until my room was ready. Some 25 mins later a member of staff came to tell me that my room was ready.
I had a corner room, facing the airport but with excellent sound proof windows I wasn't disturbed by the landing and departing aircraft. More problematic was finding the switch to close the electronic curtains (it's under the pillows on the bed...I kid you not).
The restaurant is Italian and serves a good selection of dishes. The breakfast selection is adequate and the quality was good. Staff were very friendly and happy to help, with good tit bits of advice. Get the hotel to book you a taxi...don't walk over to the airport as those taxis charge a premium. All in all a great stay that all began with a warm cookie.
