“Newcastle Trip”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This Travelodge is the best one that we have stayed in and we use them a lot all over the UK. Everything was fresh and clean and the pillows were so soft and fluffy that we would have liked to buy some. It was within easy reach of the Metro Centre if you were going on a shopping trip, two of our party were going to a concert and it was an ideal location

After reading all the shocking reviews, I was worried about staying here. We didn't pay much for the room (£40) so I thought I'd risk it! We had an interesting view over the river and the train line didn't bother me at all. The room was clean although a little more time spent wiping small patches of dust would improve the cleanliness! The bed was comfy and the sheets were clean! I wouldn't bring my family here on a weekend due to the high number of stag and hen groups staying at the hotel as they can get VERY merry! But if you want somewhere cheap and in a good location (£11-£14 into the centre of Newcastle) then this is the place to stay. The carpark was good and there were plenty of spaces + CCTV.

This hotel is in a great location there is a fantastic pub the food is unbelievably good and a large selection there is a TGI Fridays opposite and a KFC you are right on by the river but please beware if you have children there is a level crossing to go across first there is a gate either side. The staff were very friendly and are willing to help you as much as they can they got me extra coffee for free all you have to do is ask.
The night life is only a short bus or taxi ride away or about 15 min walk.
Please check if you are booking in in the next few weeks as they are about to be refurbished soon.

We recommend this hotel for its excellent value and friendly staff. We booked in for one night and ended up staying for three. The Skiff Inn nearby is convenient next door for a friendly drink and Asda just two minutes away offers a very good value cooked breakfast. We heartily recommend it to those on a budget. The rooms are a decent size, showers excellent. The only downside was that the carpets were a little dirty.

Nothing really to say - standard Travelodge fayre. Staff were very polite, KFC nearby and also a buffet restaurant 5 mins walk.

Need a car really as cab fares are 10-15 pounds into Newcastle. Near to the metro centre.
