Holiday Inn Express Newcastle Metro Centre

Reviewed May 27, 2012

Stayed for one night as was attending family wedding . Ideally situated close to the A1 if travelling by car.Bus stop right outside only 10 minutes into city centre cost £2.50. Ample free parking at the hotel. Found the room clean and comfortable. The breakfast choice was good and you could have as little or as much as you wanted.We had three rooms and as it was a family booking all three were together which was good. The Metro Centre is about 10 minutes walk away. All in all a good hotel for a base at a reasonable price with friendly staff

The staff were polite and courteous and happy to help. I arrived early and consequently my room was not ready so I waited in the bar and was given a complimentary coffee. The hotel is just outside the city centre, but situated close to entertainment such as cinema and KFC, TGI Fridays and Frankie and Benny’s literally a short walk away. TIP: You get 20% of a meal at Frankie’s if you show them your room card.
The room was pretty big and clean, not sure what else to say. I had pleasant stay. The breakfast was included with the price of the room and consisted of scrambled eggs, sausages and beans. Which were look-warm, but to be fair I did arrive close to the end of breakfast. The cafe latte was nice.
In conclusion, if you are on business looking for a relatively quiet stay then I recommend this hotel.

I stayed here with a group of 7 others when we visited newcastle for a ladies weekend out. We couldn't fault the hotel as it was exactly what we were looking for which was somewhere to crash after a days shopping at the metro centre and the got ready for our night out in Newcastle. If your looking for a quiet hotel for the weekend then I wouldn't recommend it for that as there was lots of other groups staying there when we were there but that said I never hear any noise from any one else.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for two nights mid-week and found it to be very clean, really quiet during the night and all the staff were friendly. Breakfast was basic, you could eat as much as you like, but that is what you expect in the express hotels. We were visiting relatives so did not go into Newcastle but there were families staying who were visiting the City for shopping trips and the usual business people. Would stay here again.

1st class hotel chain.
We arrived to a very professional receptionist who checked us in (a party of 4) rooms were of a good size and very clean. Location is perfect. Good selection at breakfast, food was hot and freshly made.could not fault the place.

You could request either smoking or non smoking rooms and pets are allowed if you check at time of booking which is not very well advertised. This will be such a bonus for all dog owners as very few hotel chains offer this service. Hats off to holiday in express!
I have passed on this information to my parents who are dog owners.

We travelled to the Barbour outlet which offers good discounts and off course the metro centre for a bit of retail therapy.

Good location for shopping at the metro centre. TFI Fridays next door was really nice. Basic rooms but clean. Breakfast could have been much better. Reception staff very efficient and helpful. I forgot my toothbrush and was very pleased to find they have complimentary ones available at reception, as well as other useful things.
