“Better Than All the Rest”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Decided to have a weekend away from the family, so chose the Hotel Indigo with a rating of over 9 out of 10 on the write ups. They were not wrong we could not find fault with anything, whatsoever, and i did try they deserve the best possible rating, staff where great, friendly and helpful from front of house to bar, restaurant room cleaners and door security staff.
We tried room service and we were not disappointed the order was delivered correct as order, although the soup could have been a touch warmer.
Free mini bar its yours to use soft drinks, crisps and water.
Also a good range of quality toiletries, and all the normal items you would expect with the hotel, room safe, hair drier, WiFi, large flat screen TV.etc . Breakfast was first class, no queuing plenty of room and a good choice.
Bar drinks a bit pricy but what hotel drinks are cheap these days
Parking adjacent to the hotel in a monitored secure area at £12 per 24 hours, fantastic hotel in the centre of this great vibrant city with Geordie hospitality.
Don't take my word try it yourself you wont be disapointed.

YES WILL BE BACK

Beautiful classy hotel in an excellent central location.Staff are very efficent and polite. Close to Eldon Square for shopping. We walked to Chinatown for a lovely meal before going to the metro arena which was a five minute taxi ride away. Loved our stay. Very very special.

Newcastle is a city full of decent hotels and when booked in advance can feature some pretty good prices. Hotel Indigo in terms of price range was just above market average thus I was hoping for a good experience and something different.

Location: about a 5 minute walk to the train station and 20mins walk to the riverside. If you are new to Newcastle make sure you have your smartphone map with you as the hotel isn't visible from the station.

Check-in: swift and quick, the ladies and gentlemen at the front desk welcomed me to the hotel and within minutes I was shown to the elevator. There were some slight issues with the key cards but this was quickly resolved.

Room: the room size is cozy (the bathroom even cozier) but everything was nicely designed and colour matched. The ambiance was comfortable and the complimentary refreshments in the mini bar (can of fizzy, water and crisps) was a nice welcome. I do love the Aveda toiletries too! However, some minor details let the room down; firstly, the bed sheets whilst comfy was getting worned out and this was very evident. Secondly, there were some stains on the wall (near the kettle) and coffee table. Perhaps a previous guest was too enthusiastic mixing the in-room tea & coffee.

Check-out: even swifter than check in

Final Verdict: I do like this hotel despite some details needing improvement. The staff provided great service including the night shift guys. Shall I return to Newcastle I will defo look at returning, though there really is quite a range of hotels to choose from.

In simple terms, one of the best all round hotels I've ever stayed in, and one of the best reviews I've written. ( in fact I'm writing this from the hotel. I had room 417 on 4th floor 18/dec)

Location. Excellent
Staff. Excellent ( super friendly )
Cleanliness Excellent
Room facilities. Better than most five star hotels!
Parking. On site £12
Value. Excellent. ( I paid £89 b&b exe room)
Wi-fi. Free everywhere in the hotel.
Bar area. Excellent(Think Funky wine )
Minibar in room. Free

This hotel is how every hotel should be. Clean , fresh, modern, quality. Even the small details , like stream free mirror in the bathroom, bathrobes, really good quality towels bed linen. iron, blankets minibar.

This week I've stayed in a Marriot,macdonlad hotel and other boutique hotel in three different cities. All supposed to be 4*. However, you are paying for the brand not the quality of the hotel. None come close to this hotel.

Would I stay again at a hotel indigo - Absolutely!
Could they improve? Perhaps better orange juice! , but frankly who cares . This place is as good as a hotel gets.

Arrived after a 27 hr trip from Melbourne and the staff were very friendly and welcoming, ensuring a quick checking for me. For the 2 weeks I was there all staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Meals were very good, the music and bar area very enjoyable.

Look forward to returning in the future

We stayed at this hotel for a friends birthday and was really impressed with the modern ,bright feel about the hotel.
The bedroom overlooked the tops of buildings so to compensate they had a photomontage of the Tyne bridge in the room which made you feel you had a room with a view. The bed was large and very comfy had the best nights sleep and did not hear any noise from the street.
There was a small balcony to enjoy the summer sun and when it got too hot the air conditioning was easily controlled and did make a difference when turned on!
The staff in reception, bar ,restaurant all were very friendly and helpful.
The location was perfect easy to walk into town do do some serious retail therapy.
I would recommend this hotel to all.

Room Tip: Cannot remember room number but one with a balcony.

Just home from a one night stay at the hotel indigo. The hotel and rooms are stunning and the customer service second to none, nothing was too much trouble. Every member of staff was fantastic but Colleen really stood out as exceptional. It was in a good location. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
