nice, great location but!

I loved it but I hated the parking facilities and the rules at night, you can't bring in your car late because they close the gate, so you have to knock on the door and then they will open it to you!!!

Faded elegance

Posted 05-Sep-2014
The hotel is very central, and great for transport links and bars and restaurants. The gym and pool were great, but I found the rooms suffered from street and construction noise, and a lingering smell of cigarette smoke.

Good hotel, very central.

Posted 04-Sep-2014
Pros: Central location. Welcoming and friendly staff. Very clean, good facilities.
Location: Great location for access to city centre shopping, galleries and cathedrals. Next to Metro station to get to Coast or other attractions.
Welcoming and friendly staff. Hotel ideally suited for city centre shops or walk down to the Quayside. Next to central metro station made it easy to get about and out to the coast. Clean rooms and good facilities. Overall very impressive hotel.

A royal relic of a hotel

Posted 30-Aug-2014
Pros: The mini fridge and contents and the bathroom, as well as the fact that it's an old hotel which was visited by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
Cons: The room I was in could have done with a fresh coat of paint, and there were bad cracks in the ceiling, but to be fair, it is an old building.
Location: The location is right next door to the train station so is convenient for travellers and is near the Quayside, shops and night clubs.
I was in awe of the regal foyer and sweeping staircases. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. I was on the top floor in a single use room, which was cozy with a three-quarter size bed. The mattress was comfortable and not too hard but not too soft. The decor was a little tired. There was plenty of tea and coffee, including a mini fridge which had two bottles of water, two cartons of fresh orange juice and two kitkats, which I thought was a lovely touch. The bathroom had a great deep bath and the water was very hot. The shower was in the bath, and was also good and the choice of toiletries were plentiful. The tv was not very big but I was happy with that. The only downside of my stay was the roadworks going on around the Central Station, but that was not the hotel's fault. I had the choice of 24 hour room service if I wanted and there is even a swimming pool and gym. Excellent facilities. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone. The price was also fair, but did not include breakfast.

Overnight hotel stay

Posted 27-Aug-2014
Pros: Location
Cons: D├ęcor and noise insulation
Location: City centre
Good location. Hotel is a bit faded and in need of some renovation. It seemed to lack a sitting area in the entrance area. The room was good and the bathroom large and functional. However, the bed was made up poorly and the place was generally grubby from years of use. Unfortunately no double glazing so the noise from the station car park outside was persistent all night.

Relaxing Stay in the City

Posted 23-Aug-2014
Pros: I liked the spa pool and sauna inside the spa facilities, the hotel lounge, breakfast buffet and my hotel room bathroom.
Cons: The rooms could be a bit more quiet at night.
Location: The hotel was adjacent to the railway station and near to the "centre for life" science museum. Also a walk away from the main restaurants and shops.
The Royal Station Hotel was a nice elegant place to stay, with magnificent chandeliers and relaxing spa facilities. Also, the hotel was at a convenient walking distance to attractions and shopping centres.

Not for me.

Posted 23-Aug-2014
Seemed a bit like a Hotel for revellers. Lots of groups of people partying late into the morning and continuing their sessions in the Hotel rooms/ corridors. Staff were quite apathetic. Room was clean but insecure (window and door locks broken). Not somewhere I would stay again.

Good hotel next to train station

Posted 05-Aug-2014
Pros: Location next to the train station. You can enter and leave from the hotel without going outside.
Cons: Air conditioning. The windows don't open and it is very warm in the summer
Location: It is located right downtown next to bars, restaurants, subway stations and close to the Quays and the river Tyne.
We stayed 3 nights at the Royal Station Hotel in a Superior Double Room. The room was big and the bathroom modern. The free minibar was a nice touch. Unfortunately, during our stay, there was road work just in front so it was a little bit noisy in the morning. There was no air conditioning but they provided a fan. If you go during the summer and you are used to AC you might not be comfortable.

Horrendous

Posted 04-Aug-2014
Pros: staircase, staff and breakfast
Cons: omgoodness, air conditioning to rooms at the front, the noise was awful till 4 am. bigger beds, more lighting,
Location: good location, very central to everything 10/10 for that
Worst night ever we were in room 336, and supposed to have been upgraded, but if this was an upgrade id love to see the room we were in, very disappointing, it was so hot we had to leave the window open all night you couldn't breathe, being at the front it was the noisiest place we have been, noisier than New York...the sink leaked when you ran water in, to the bathroom, lights were that dim you couldn't read, and only half of them could be put on, the double bed was awful more like an oversized single.....and marks to the walls needed painting, .we were looking forward to this so much...we had both lost our husbands recently and wanted to enjoy our night away...it was a lot of money for us...breakfast was amazing well worth the money...and the staff were lovely....id never recommend this hotel at all....if we had stayed more than one night, id have asked to be moved to the rear, no air conditioning is silly...very sad, we had to sleep all day yesterday as none was there on sturday...im sorry but that's truthful
