Stayed one night as had tickets for the Arena .... Great location as only walking distance to the concert. The staff were just lovely, genuine Geordie girls who couldn't do more to help. The makings are all there for a very comfortable hotel and all that needs doing is for the powers that be to spend a little time and...

We had a two night stay here. It wasn't the best three star hotel I've stayed in: uncomfortable bed, thin walls, tired decor and faint smell of stale cigarettes HOWEVER the staff were all fantastic, the breakfast in the cafe was great and the location is brilliant right on the river and surrounded by places to eat and drink. Fine...

My husband and I stayed here last night as we were going to a gig in Newcastle. We were going to book the Travel lodge but spotted this on a last minute 'secret deal' (it wasn't very secret, we guessed easily which hotel it was from the description) for slightly less and in a better location. We paid £45 room...

Centrally located close to one of the many bridges in Newcastle. The hotel is quite old style but clean. Very friendly and helpful receptionist that even fixed breakfast in the restaurant below at 6 in the morning so i would catch my train. A 3 star hotel but very cosy as such.

Receptionist was lovely and checked us in great and was exceptionally helpful. When we got to our room we were completely disappointed, the carpets were dirty, bed old and tatty, furniture...

Great location, right next to some fantastic bars & craft pubs. Don't stay in room 204 though. You can hear the next room even moving spoons for tea & coffee the lack of soundproofing is that bad! The black and red wires! are left open on the smoke alarm above your head. Rooms badly need a refurb. I've stayed before...

This little hotel is tucked in at quayside on the Tyne, just where the Swing Bridge joins the north bank. Very convenient location, particularly as I was finishing a long bicycle trip and it was right on the NCR 72 'Hadrian's Wall' route. Staff were friendly and helpful (they were happy to store my bicycle overnight in the manager's office)....

I was seeing friends play at the riverside club across the road from the hotel. It was a great location, lots of bars and restaurants around the hotel. Staff were friendly and efficient. The hotel room was comfortable and clean. Tea and coffee facilities.

Stayed for 2 nights for a hen weekend. The hotel is centrally located for getting about Newcastle but it desperately needs a refurb. The rooms were tired and could've been doing with a deep clean, or just refurbished completely, particularly in the bathroom as there was mould etc. It was ideal for what we had booked it for but I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated on Newcastle’s famous and picturesque Quayside and just an 8 minute walk to the city centre. The hotel occupies a handsome Grade II listed building steeped in history and includes free Wi-Fi, parking and the funky and lively late night bar "Jimmyz" open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays . The city centre plays host to an excellent choice of shopping and also plays host to the Theatre Royal, which brings in talents such as opera North and The Royal Shakespeare Company. The bar is located on the ground level or if it’s dancing you prefer, then look no further than Sea nightclub. The hotel aims to go that extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful stay.Each bedroom has a unique style; the layout of the hotel lends itself to well-appointed rooms with the privacy and intimacy of a boutique hotel. Rooms offer all modern facilities guests would expect plus some rooms have extras such as plasma screen TV and DVD player and air conditioning.At the Waterside staff believe it is important to start the day right with a delicious freshly cooked Full English Breakfast or tasty Continental Breakfast which is served every day from 7:00am – 10:00am Monday – Friday and 8:30am – 10:30am Saturday and Sunday. Although the hotel doesn’t serve lunch or evening meals the immediate area boasts an excellent range of restaurants and cafes in which to enjoy any variety of meal.The famous Jimmyz Bar has been a landmark venue in Newcastle since the major re-development of the Quayside in the early 90’s. The bar has recently had a makeover of its own and this opulent cosmopolitan venue now boasts an extensive cocktail list and the sort of hospitality which makes Newcastle a popular choice.Newcastle and the wider area is made up of a diverse variety of towns, cities, coast and countryside offering a huge selection of things to do whatever your tastes. From relaxing at the coast to soaking up world-class culture in the city centres, from getting back in-touch with nature at a woodland retreat to shopping at Europe’s largest indoor shopping and leisure complex, (Metrocentre). It’s rare to find anywhere so diverse that amazes visitors at every turn with its dialogue between ultra-modern and ancient, with award-winning dining, inspiring heritage, fantastic shopping and acclaimed architecture makes up a destination like no other. ... more   less
