We got a great deal of £45 per room per night inclusive of breakfast. Hotels in city centre were closer to £100 room only so opted for Gateshead. Taxi in to centre was about £12-13 each way but there were 4 of us so not a huge expense.
Hotel was clean, friendly and great location for Metrocentre which we drove over to in the morning. I daresay you can walk but you are next to main busy road so driving seemed the safer option. Never had breakfast so cannot comment but husband said it was adequate. We ate dinner at the Skiff Inn next door to the hotel which I can highly recommend. We travelled down from the North and the hotel was a breeze to find. Would definately return on our next trip down to the toon.
