Stayed here for my son's graduation. Perfect location. Super, helpful, friendly staff. Very comfy beds, although decor tired. Smell in entrance & stairs is awful & flickering light needed changing. Advertised as free parking, but £5 charge enforced, although this seemed reasonable value & hotel gave us 24 hours plus.

I just spent the weekend here and loved the place. It's basic and tired but has everything you need, clean bedding, towels, tea, coffee, Tv, Free Wifi, bar and a lovely little Breakfast room. Staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast spot on. Great location to bars and restaurants and a 10 minuet walk into the town. There is... More

We checked out on seeing and smelling this place. We had booked in from attractive but misleading photos on a website but on arrival the lobby stank, a sour, rancid smell; the place was run down so that letters on signs in lift (eg) were missing, dirty net curtain on bedroom window, reception poky with a door open showing laundry,...

Where do I start, ok the staff were very nice nothing too much trouble, food also ok. This is where it stops, the room was dirty and smelt. There were cobwebs on ceiling and dust everywhere. We only had hot water in the mornings and the shower tray was cracked, therefore water was coming through the floor into bedroom soaking... More

Great location - the pub downstairs is closed for refurbishment at the moment so we had no problems with noise. Really friendly helpful staff. A bit shabby in places - but we were seriously happy for the price we paid. Would stay here again

Situated on the quayside just a short walk to the city centre and waterfront. It's a bit shabby but fantastic value for money and the staff are super friendly and engaging. There is a free car park close by and the breakfast was lovely.

Hotel is located within walking distance to some attractions and restaurants. We had difficulty finding this hotel even with a GPS because it is located right at the exit of 1 of the 4 bridges nearby and no place to stop to try to figure out where the hotel might be.

Decided to visit "Sunny" Newcastle this bank holiday just gone and headed straight to The Waterside Hotel as we had such a good time last time, and yet again we really enjoyed our stay. We arrived a little early and we were given access to our room a little earlier so we could get ready to meet friends. Our room... 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
