“A great service, but in a desolate location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

This was the best, cleanest and most comfortable stay I have ever had in a Premier Inn. I booked a twin room was on the 4th floor - it was spotlessly clean and everything looked very new with freshly decorated walls. It contained one full sized double bed and one small double bed. The shower was enormous with an integral seat and the jet was beautifully warm and powerful. There was a pump dispenser of imperial leather shower gel on the wall.

The hotel has a restaurant which is open from 5pm to 10pm. The menu offered a two course meal deal for £11.95 or an ultimate meal deal for £22 which included three courses, wine, beer or a soft drink – and included breakfast in the morning.

There is also a small horseshoe shaped bar in the reception area. The whole reception / restaurant area was well kept and compact – a very non-threatening place to sit. A variety of small tables and comfortable sofas and chairs were arranged in the reception area and there was a large flat screen TV.
Breakfast was expensive – all they offered was an all you can eat cooked breakfast for £8.50. I wanted a small breakfast so went to the Greggs next door. The café next door to Greggs also offers a smaller breakfast for £3.50.

30 minutes free wi-fi was a real bonus and there were clear instructions on how to access it. The signal was strong and the connection fast. I found that 30 minutes was all I needed to check my emails, the weather, the news etc. I could have staggered my 30 minutes across the day if I had wished to do so, or paid £3 for an extra 24 hours.

This hotel offered the lowest deal at £29 per night in the middle of the Jubilee bank holiday weekend. The location of the hotel may explain the availability of the cheap deal. There are many Premier Inns, Comfort Hotels and Travelodges in the centre of Newcastle or in more lively locations on the outskirts. As a lone female traveller, I did feel a little bit unsafe arriving and leaving the hotel during the evening and night – it seemed too deserted and bleak.

Team Valley Premier Inn is in the middle of a deserted industrial area. The building itself is in the middle of a small and bleak retail park, with only an HBSB, Greggs, small convenience store, café and lighting store to keep it company. There is a large gym next door to the hotel, but the whole place seemed completely lifeless during the duration of my stay. Opposite the retail park is a huge wasteland – obviously a building site, all you can currently see is acres of rubble, which gives the whole area a rather spooky feel. The drive through the industrial estate and the car park itself that made me a little uncomfortable.

We were meeting up with friends travelling from Essex so we only wanted a cheap room for the night. We chose this one because it was close to the Beamish Museum and we got a really good deal for 2 rooms. There was a plush looking lounge area and a bar/bistro. The hotel had been a Tulip hotel (Dutch) in the past hence the lounge area and the fact that the washbasins in the rooms were situated outside the bathroom, in the sleeping area. A bit strange but not really a problem for one night. The room itself was large and the bed was comfy, we had a good nights sleep. Parking was a bit of a problem as the car park belongs to the Team Valley complex so anybody can park there. People are coming and going all day and night so we didn't have too long to wait for a space. Close to the Metro Centre, Newcastle and Gateshead city centres and lots of attractions.

Stayed one night in this Premier Inn, good location just off the A1(M) and ten minutes from the Metro Centre.
Lovely hotel, very smart. The room we had was large, clean and comfortable. Very good breakfast.
Bath loungers will be disappointed only a shower in bathroom but this is large and provides a good shower. Would book again if in the area.

Stayed here for 3 nights to do course in Newcastle. Easy to drive to just off A1.Parked up car and got taxi into the city. Cheaper than car parks and less stressful than driving. Hotel extremely quite, clean, and friendly.
