We found this at the second attempt, there is another Premier Inn a bit further along the riverside to the East. Beware of using a SAT NAV to find the hotel, it will probably take you on to the Tyne Bridge which goes right over the hotel, but does not give you access to it! You need to be down on the riverside. There is limited parking available, (about 30 spaces) and you have to book it in advance and pay extra for it (about £7 a night ). For the double room only we paid £62 in advance online.
We arrived at about 9 pm and were very quickly checked in. The bar was empty (Sunday night) and we were quickly served.
The room was quiet and clean. The bed was large and comfortable with extra pillows available. It was rather cold and I did not sleep well as a result. In the middle of the night I turned up the heating, but the electric radiator and thermostat were noisy (humming and clicking every few minutes), so eventually I turned the thermostat down and put my coat over the bed to keep warm. There were no extra blankets in the room.
The breakfast was self service, and we opted for continental for a fiver each. There was a reasonable variety on the self service counter. It would have been nice to have a few pastries, and a few pieces of fresh fruit. The fresh fruit salad was good though.
The free WiFi seemed complicated to set up, involving registration etc, and is limited to 30 minutes, so after a few minutes trying we gave up. It seems mean not to have unlimited WiFi, as it does not cost the hotel anything?
The staff were friendly and helpful, but the next time we stay in Newcastle I think we will be able to find somewhere just as good, with free parking, for less money on a Sunday night.
