Stayed with my boyriend on a Saturday evening for a belated valentine weekend away in Newcastle. We only booked the room and breakfast- the valentine package offered was too pricey!
Arrived at hotel on the saturday at 2pm to check-in. Location of hotel is perfect, minutes from the station and surrounding bars and restaurants, shopping area.
We had to join a queue to check in which wasnt very efficient. And then we had to wait in the bar until 3pm for our room, which was a pain, but this reason was because we were upgraded to the Bridal suite through our loyality card...which turned the situation into amazing!! We had a complimentary mini bar of beers, wine, water, soft drinks and snacks. The balcony with "sunbeds" was awesome, and it just so happened to be sunny which was a bonus..
The room was a corner suite so was very spacious, lovely modern decor with black, white and bright oranges. The bathroom was fab, 2 sinks, and very large walk in shower, all with complimentary lotions and potions!
The bar area was waiter service which was nice, although slightly pricey with a 10% service charge added! We did get some nice nibbles of wasabi peas, peanuts and vegetable crisps to go with our drinks.
Before hitting the town on the Saturday evening we noticed the hotel was really busy and the ambience in the restaurant / bar area was buzzing. There was a live singer which seemed nice. We didnt eat there for dinner but did have the breakfast in the Marco Pierre White restaurant which was yummy!!! Continental and full english....good quality food - the black pudding and sausage was very tasty.
Overall this hotel was superb, and we would definitely go back there!
We were extra lucky to receive the upgrade, as Im sure the other rooms were just as nice.
