I was over in Newcastle with my daughters godmother for a surprise birthday treat so had booked a two bedroom apartment. Check-in was quick and efficient, we were then taken to our rooms by Alexandra who could not have been more helpful.

This is a lovely and luxurious place to stay, the apartment really had the wow factor and is as good, if not better than many 5 star hotels I have stayed in. The lounge overlooked the main road but you were unaware of any traffic or noise, all fittings were to a high standard and the kitchen fully equipped. The two bedrooms, both double beds, were tastefully decorated, very comfortable beds, lovely linen and lots of big fluffy towels. The bathroom had a deep bath, separate cubicle with rain shower, toilet and sink.

My daughter, who lives in Jesmond, collected us and we went out for dinner followed by the ballet. On our return they came in for coffee and enthused about the apartment as much as we did.

Free parking is available both at the front and rear of the property which are covered by cctv so I felt my soft top car was well protected. The lovely gentleman who was on night duty added to our feeling of security.

I highly recommend staying here, they also run a loyalty program so I will be coming back soon and staying for longer. Access to the city center is easy, there are numerous places to eat on Osbourne road and of course the fully fitted kitchen means you can eat in and watch TV.

Thank you to all the staff who made us welcome and added to a memorable birthday.

Room Tip: We were in appt 45, first floor, it was very quiet and a nice temperature.

Had a lovely stay in these beautiful apartments when visiting Newcastle with friend last weekend. For the price I wasn't expecting it to be as modern and well equipt as it was. I would defiantly go back on any future visit!

We had a great stay here whilst attending a wedding in Newcastle. The apartments were comfortable and really lovely to stay in but the staff were really brilliant. My husband left his computer in the apartment by accident and we had to arrange for it to be collected by courier. Ruth on reception was so kind and professional in our dealings with her and made what could have been a difficult situation very easy. I can't thank her enough for her help. We would certainly stay here again!!

the good: lovely accommodation. I loved the décor - smart stripes (with a Newcastle U theme?), gold/beige - great quality fixtures and fittings, very very comfy beds and bed linen. kitchen was well equipped and reception happy to supply milk/cereal/juice to set us up, and olive oil on request. two very good sized double bedrooms (one en suite, what a treat!) more than enough for our party (a couple, a granny, a baby and a 3 yr old). and nice open plan living area (though the extractor fan made tv watching tricky while cooking!). hotel located close to the main road (quick access to motorway) and jesmond metro station but still fairly quiet. the not so good: the radiator in our bedroom was not under the window, so our bedroom was chilly and drafty on the stormy winter's evening we arrived - not such a cosy and comforting welcome. there was a smear of some description on the bedspread. could have done with more shelf space in the bathroom, body lotion and tissues among the toiletries (have been provided in other four star hotels i've stayed in) and hooks on the bedroom and bathroom doors. the hallway cupboard was locked - needed somewhere to hang coats and scarves. that's being a bit picky though - overall it was a real treat to stay here and i'd recommend it.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. We are glad you enjoyed the majority of our hospitality. Unfortunately we cannot move the radiators if you had asked at reception we could have supplied a small heater for you. There are hooks on the bathroom doors for dressing gowns etc, in the bedrooms there is a wardrobe extra hangers are available from reception, all bathrooms are dressed with shower gel/shampoo/conditioner and hankies, we tried the lotion but found it was not popular. We will look at the bathrooms to see if we can add more shelving.
We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Kind regards

I stayed here in a two bedroom apartment with my son on the night before his interview at the University (within walking distance). It was perfect. Smart, quiet and clean, with everything we needed. There were plenty of good restaurants and bars within a short walk. However, there was also a nearby Waitrose where I bought some food and cooked us dinner in the well equipped kitchen. The reception staff were delightful, and couldn't have been more helpful. I am planning to return with a group of friends, as this would be a perfect base to visit Newcastle. Lots of parking outside - but we got the metro from the airport, very easy as Jesmond Metro station just across the road. Highly recommend.

We stayed here at half term with our two young kids. Our apartment consisted of a large living/dining room, a very well appointed kitchen, a master double bedroom with en-suite (shower) and a twin & family bathroom (bath) for the kids. SO much better than a family room in a hotel! Jesmond Metro station is directly across the road from the aparthotel (1 stop from town) and the Jesmond shops & restaurants are just a short walk down the road. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, as were the cleaners who kept the place spotless. Plenty of carparking too. We loved our stay and would definitely stay here again - ideal for families.

A great place to stay and very comfortable. I think management need to do cleaning checks as the sofa in the living room was very dirty. Apart from that I have stayed twice and would definitely return.

Thank you for your review, I regularly check apartments and discuss on a regular basis with housekeeping any issues, at the moment we are in the process of recovering/replacing settees, we are also redecorating apartments and in the near future the outside of the building, It is always helpful when guests bring things to our attention as it helps maintain our high standards.

We look forward to seeing you again in the future
