Lovely and clean - with windows that fully open and decent view. However, very very hot in room, not lighter bed covers available in room. Also, had to pay £30 damage deposit for room (which was refunded upon checkout when no damage found) This just felt really unwelcoming and like they distrusted you. Especially when there was damage everywhere in... More

Overall the hotel was nice. Staff was very pleasant. Beds were okay - which is nice since the other beds we've had this trip to the UK have been bad. Here's the warning: Our room in the front of the hotel did NOT have air con. This is probably because it's a listed building and making changes to the front... More

Very friendly helpful staff. Excellent position close to The Sage and lots of restaurants and bars. Double glazing kept out street noise. Breakfast was good with a choice of cooked or continental. Not far from railway station and city centre.

We stayed here for the rugby Magic Weekend at my choice - the pictures and location looked fantastic! At least the location wasn't telling fibs... On arrival the woman on reception was so welcoming and even had the goodwill to tell us that for the same cost of breakfast we should go to the cafe downstairs (longplay cafe) for a... More

Staff were so nice upon check in. Breakfast area was a little confusing and what they offered wasn't clear. The room was nice and large with a really good bathroom.

We stayed here for one night, Friday. I was slightly concerned it would be noisy, being on the quayside, but it was in a quieter bit, just under the Tyne bridge, and we were able to have the window open all night without being too disturbed by revellers. Good job, too, as it was a very warm room - more... More

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
