On Wednesday night I stayed at the Novotel in Newcastle upon Tyne. This hotel has some good features, as you enter your room you have an internal door separating the toilet area from the rest of the room, this also helped cut out the noise of other residents, walking up and down the corridor outside. My door did not actually fit in the frame so it did not quite work for me, but the hotel was not busy and therefore quiet. The bed was fairly new and very comfortable and the room had good quality blackout curtains. There were some shortcomings one was the lack of a good reading lamp, I like to read and catch up on paperwork when staying away. Another was the rather bad smell from the basin (could do with some bleach) and the bath mats were available on request from reception, given that the bath was slippery when wet I think they should have been available in the bathroom. The last point was the lack of a deadbolt on the door; I had to use the chain.
Unfortunately, I did not get time to use the spa area with fitness suite and small heated pool which looked very inviting and was open from 6am until 10pm.
There is a £5 per night charge for car parking, which was quite surprising for hotel well outside the town centre, but the car parking spapces were good.
Despite a few problems my overall stay was good due to the comfortable bed, blackout curtains and the good buffet breakfast in the morning, and I would consider staying here again.
