We stayed at this hotel for the weekend when attending a wedding at another nearby hotel. It has been recently refurbished and looks modern, bright and welcoming. The staff at reception were very efficient and courteous and nothing was too much trouble for them.
Our room was great for our needs, typical for a Holiday Inn. The room was clean and of a usual corporate hotel size.They provided complimentary bottled water which was a welcome relief in the early hours, after a night out!!
The location was excellent if you are there to explore what the city has to offer and Jesmond itself has a good range of bars and restaurants.
We had breakfast on both mornings. It was standard buffet fare but was replenished frequently and there was quite a good variety.
We did not eat in the restaurant, Fratello's, but it did come highly recommended. The bar was definitely worth a visit. Zio bar is a destination bar as well as being in the hotel. They served great cocktails and there was a nice 'buzz' about the place.
On the whole it was very enjoyable stay and we would definitely stay there again.
