Nice clean room with everything you need at a good price. The only let downs are no bacon for breakfast and the noisy stag & hens dos echoing out the front of the hotel in the early hours of the morning.

As expected this hotel was of an acceptable standard, a little formulaic but you know what you are getting as all Holiday Inn Express hotels are the pretty much the same. The room was comfortable, a generous size, and the breakfast selection quite extensive although the eating area was a bit like a nice canteen. The staff were pleasant but... More

Overall this hotel is a great value hotel, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the only niggle was that the kettle in my room didn't work. The hotel advertises free parking, the parking is only free between 5pm and 8am, so if you are checking in late and leaving early its not an issue however if you arrive before 5pm... More

This hotel was more than comfortable, staff very helpful and friendly, very well kept rooms, lovely decor, bed was extremely comfortable, with extra pillows. Nice view from our room. Breakfast was brilliant, more than you could ask for, full buffet. Would most definitely stay there again. And highly recommended to family and friends.

This hotel is AMAZING?! Me and my friend came to Newcastle to watch the Dreamboys and the hotel is right round the corner! It's also just a 10minute walk to the monument or a £4.00 taxi. The breakfast is brilliant with a choice of traditional English breakfast or continental - especially good after a heavy night drinking!
