I have stayed in Newcastle on business a number of times over the last year and have tried a number of hotels in the city ranging from large 4 star chains to boutique style smaller hotels. During this time the Station has been undergoing a refurb so I have stayed there while a large amount of work has been going on to bring it up to date, but now that the work is drawing to a close the Hotel is just outstanding value for a city centre hotel.
It has maintained its traditional feel with huge glistening chandeliers in the lobby, and the decor in all public areas are simialr but the rooms have been given a much more contemporary feel with flat screen tvs, modern bathrooms and large and very comfortable beds. a nice extra touch are the drinks and kit kats in the room fridge which rather than being outrageously overpriced as is normally the case, are instead complementary. It is literally right next to Newcastle Central Train but unless you are a very light sleeper it isnt an issue re noise. The upside is that everything in the city centre is walking distance away. I havent used the gym or pool so cant comment on those facilities but these really are a bonus with the hotel being such great value for money. Drinks in the bar are close to regular bar prices which makes a change and staff are friendly and helpful. Oh and there is free wi fi in all areas whcih when you are on business is really useful. At almost half the price of some of the 4 stars in the city its just great value for money and ideal for either business or a weekend city break.
