We stayed here for a night out in Newcastle. Gorgeous room (deluxe room) decor was lovely, huge bed, ample pillows and towels. Short taxi ride into the city centre, this cost around £8. The room was immaculate. Reception staff were friendly and helped us with our enquiries and booked a taxi for us. Would much rather stay here and pay for a taxi into the centre than pay the same price for a budget hotel in the centre that aren't as nice. Thanks gibside, we will be returning.
