Next to station

Posted 05-Jan-2015
Pros: Attractively priced in the city centre.
Cons: Some areas ready for refurbishment
Location: Near City centre, close access to both metro and rail stations.
Well positioned, a Victorian building with many original features. Next to the station so can suffer from a little noise from announcements however these do stop later in the evening. My 2nd stay and I would stay again, nice breakfast on both occasions.

Grand old hotel, very central.

Posted 11-Nov-2014
Pros: Situation. Grandness/character.
Cons: More drawer space in the bedroom. Provision of face flannels. Soap dish.
Location: Very central. Plenty of exhibitions, theatre, etc.
Pleasant enough and conveniently situated. Could have done with drawer space in the room, as well as hanging space.

Period Hotel, massive room

Posted 05-Nov-2014
I've read some of the bad reviews on this hotel and became a little worried. I was really surprised on how big, clean and pleasant the room was. The period touches on the staircase were beautiful. Would stay here again

Reasonable central hotel but a bit tired & noisy

Posted 03-Nov-2014
Pros: Good location. Leisure centre was ok. Nice toiletries. Nice touch to have juice & snack in room fridge instead of extortionate minibar.
Cons: The decor. Sound proofing. Better leisure centre facilities.
Location: Central Newcastle with everything the town has to offer (lots of bars and clubs in particular!)
I stayed for business over the weekend. The hotel is fairly old and the decor is a little tired. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was ok although again the decor was a little tired. The main problem was noise - from outside the hotel predominantly but also the hotel itself was quite noisy throughout the night. I understand that a central location will always be noisy, but it is worth bearing in mind if you want some peace and quiet. My earplugs were a necessity in getting to sleep. The swimming pool / leisure centre was in a separate building outside the hotel and was quite small and a bit poky - it was very odd having to walk up and down stairs to be able to get to the wet area from changing rooms. Having said that the facilities that we used (pool and jacuzzi) were fine.

Great overnight stay

Posted 31-Oct-2014
Pros: Comfort, beautiful decoration / structures.
Cons: Happy as it is
Location: The hotel is straight in the centre of Newcastle and there's plenty to do around there within a short walk distance.
We checked in in late night after a long flight and the staff was really welcoming, friendly, delivered quickly all the due information and processed my check in smoothly. The Hotel looks great and the rooms are really comfortable. All the facilities that we used were top notch, but we didn't have time to use the swimming pool and the sauna, as the day after we had to leave, but we were really sad that we had to miss that.

Business Trip

Posted 27-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is a great location, right next to rail station. I was upgraded to a suite which was great. Didn't eat in hotel, due to its central location went out to seek better value. I had 1 of the worst nights sleep ever at this hotel, due to on-going road works which were outside the hotel & went on all night!!!

Old and in the way

Posted 27-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Nice old fashioned hotel - the room was well furnished and the bathroom seemed to be recently renovated to good standard. The wifi was non existent - never really properly connected and the TV handset was held together by electrical tape and only worked with RSI inducing compression.
