I stayed at The Waterside for one night due to a meeting over run. I purchased my room from last minute. Com for £43.00 bed and breakfast, and for that money it was great value. The hotel is situated on the water front a stones throw from the magnificent Tyne bridge, free parking in a city centre is also a bonus.
I needed to purchased some over night stuff and a new shirt so had to walk into the city which took no more than 15 minutes to get to the centre, on the way I walked past numerous trendy bars and restaurants.
The room was clean and comfortable ( I was allocated a single) and was very warm. The double glazed windows protected the room for the sounds of the street and railway bridge close by. The room was a little tired with a patch of plaster missing from the ceiling and a laminate edges missing from the dressing table but it was okay.
The breakfast is cooked fresh to order and was good. Albeit not everyone needs to know the ins and outs of the waitress.s family life while discussing it at volume to the cook.
So all in all it's a comfortable hotel with a very friendly reception that was good value and in a good location. I would have been disappointed if I had paid the full hotel Internet rate.
And special thanks to the guest in the adjoining room ( interconnected un-soundproofed door) who didn't know how to switch the snooze off on their mobile first one went off at 4.50 !!!
