There's a lot that's right about this hotel. £5 a day parking in the attached multi-story. Decent, spacious standard room with plenty of storage and decent facilities, albeit that our view was obscured by grubby windows. People on reception delightfully helpful . I was a bit apprehensive since I'd inadvertently booked Sunday of a Bank Holiday weekend and expected some noise along the quayside and even in the hotel, but despite the place being full it was seemingly quiet. Breakfast was fine, though best to pay for it within your room rate since otherwise it is pretty expensive. And its in a great place- right on the quayside at its quiet end and walking distance from Newcastle's shops (though there's a hill in the way) and the best bars, and restaurants as well as The Sage and Baltic Gallery/Gateshead Millenium Brridge. We thought the rate of £102 including tax and breakfast was pretty decent for its position.
So what pulls it down? Just the fact that its getting older, needs a refurb and an injection of visual charm, thats all. Its just not a visually attractive place to be, and certainly not as overtly pristine and smart as it was when we first stayed there. It now looks dated.
