Great location for this hotel. About a 15 min walk to Jesmond centre and very close the The Metro. Staff also very friendly and accommodating. Good spot if you want to explore the sights of Newcastle.
We stayed for a long weekend to compete in the Great North Run. They arranged an early breakfast on race day and put spectator info in the rooms which was a nice touch.
My only gripe would be the exorbitant price charged for the night before The Great north Run. I realise this is not unique to this hotel but it did leave a bitter taste when settling the bill!
Interesting experience when I ordered a cream tea and got cream cheese instead of fresh cream, but we weren't charged for the tea and coffee (I sent the cream tea back) so I left satisfied and without the calories which I didn't need anyway!
My tip would be - don't eat breakfast in the The Hotel, not because there was anything wrong with the hotel breakfast, but there are some lovely breakfast spots in Jesmond (Arlo and The Fat Hippo)
