Caledonian Hotel Newcastle
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I booked the caledonian via a third party company clear cut weekends for my stag party. I have to admit I have stayed in some less than desirable places when travelling as a group before and I was expecting the same here. However this was not the case. The hotel seems to be in quite a trendy/upmarket area and seems to be popular with groups, however I would still stay here as a couple. There is quite a few amenities in the hotel room and a good hotel bar which operates a happy hour. In the immediate vicinity you have a waitrose/tesco and quite a few restaurants to choose from including a good pizza express within a minute walk. The service there was faultless. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking as staying as a group and visiting newcastles night life.

A group of us stayed at this hotel last week. Accommodation was good and the rooms were clean although some of us had rooms at the front of the hotel and the club opposite was rather noisy into the early hours. The food however was dire. We had the same vegetables for three days and the roast potatoes were unrecognisable. After 3 days we complained en masse and for the remaining two days of our stay the food improved. We had several tables allocated to us but the hotel insisted that we sat in the same seats for our meals! We have never heard of this in any other hotel and complained, but complied with their request. This prevented us from mixing with other members of our group as we like to interchange our seating to keep in touch with everyone. A rather strange and unnecessary request.

Room Tip: Choose rooms away from the main road as the hotel/club opposite was rather noisy.

The hotel has plenty of bedrooms and although the road and bars outside (as well as the one inside the hotel) are full of people enjoying themselves especially at the weekend we have never suffered any noise problems in the bedrooms we have used there. There are also decent restaurants opposite. It is also convenient for the city centre.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back and on the 2nd floor

Stayed at the hotel following a wedding celebration on 22nd June. The room we had was on the second floor looking out on to Osborne Road, it had a huge bed with white bed linen which was immaculate - ver comfortable with many pillows. The bathroom had a double shower with plenty of hot water and nice white fluffy towels plus the usual complimentary toiletries for an overnight stay. The only fault with the rooms, if any, was they were very warm even with the windows open. There is adequate parking at the rear of the hotel for those guests arriving by car.
The food was good and the waiting staff were very pleasant and efficient.
The breakfast was good with the usual fruit juices, cereals, hot selection of back bacon, sausages, mushrooms, beans, fried and scrambled plus hash browns and then to finish Danish pastries, croissants and toast.
All in all very good value for money and a definite recommendation for a good three star hotel close to the city centre for anyone travelling to Newcastle. Plenty of taxis are regularly outside the hotel and it is only 5 minutes away. It must be good as it was fully occupied the night we stayed.
On a final note if you are considering having a wedding here just ring and speak to Christina, the wedding planner - she is a star and excellent at her job.

I stayed in this hotel quite a few years ago, and was a bit apprehensive to be booked into this one again from work. However, I was very pleased with how it is nowadays. The hotel itself is very comfortable, had free wifi which was good for catching up on t'internet and email etc. The bar has a pub feel to it, and had public as well as private custom, and football and sports on. also Jesmond is now quite trendy and OSborne Raod has a good selction of eateires to choose from within walking distance. It's close enough to all these, but quiet enough to not be disturbing. I would quite happily stay there again

We came here on our "Golden ticket" deal from The Peel Hotel Group, we go with friends every year, The Caledonian didn't let us down. The upgraded room was so comfy, huge comfy bed, fridge, drinks cookies and even a pack of crisps for those late night munches. The bathroom was extremely well fitted out with a range if very nice toiletries and cotton ball, sewing kit etc. the hotel staff are so efficient and friendly nothing was too much trouble, pointing out attractions and the best places to shop etc. the food selection and quality were also very good.
we will certainly go back for another visit.

Room Tip: Either use a golden ticket deal from the chain or pay the extra to upgrade, it's well worth it.

Stayed in this hotel for a weekend with the girls!! Had a bit of refurb going on and they failed to mention you got white paint on ur clothes for free when booking a room lol! Good location to few wee shops n easy to get taxi to the party central! But be warned if ur out of ur room the crazy hotel manager aka uncle ben will come charging up the stairs and chase you to ur room or your in the corridor the crazy bar manager will phone the cops on you and push u to shouting "get into ur room"!! Think at one stage he was actually causin more noise chasin us up and down corridors like kids on a school trip!! Absolute mental case bunch or girls ipod dock on and met few other people from the hotel enjoying ourselves but the hotel manager got on like we wer commitin a criminal offence by being young and makin a bit of noise! If you tickle his baldy head he mite make u a toastie but after 5 minutes he will find you!! You think liam neesons good i was staying n floor one n went up to floor 3 n he was ther before me waitin on me hahahha! Think he was a bit bi polar after ten minutes hed be shouting again chasin us up n down the corridor!! So if ur ther for a fun weekend to have a laugh dont stay here he will get you but he wont ruin ur stay youl just ruin his day :)

Lots of love from the party starter, the girl who never sleeps and the other 2 belfast babes haha :)
