“Stunning room and building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2009

Had a great time staying just one night. Lots to do in Newcastle with a lovely area under the byker bridge near the hotel in a redeveloped area. Stunning room with mezzanine bathroom. Lovely luxurious roll top bath and HUGE shower. Toiletries you're encouraged to take! Big comfy bed Free DVD library was a nice touch. Dinner was lovely although felt a bit pressurised to rush by staff (and I don't know why, there were lots of spare tables) Lack of breakfast for the price isn't great - even if it were just continental - seems a bit steep. Lovely lovely room though (although our bathroom did leak - reception said it was meant to have been fixed the week before - not much help to us though! v. apologetic though) Lovely seating area in the courtyard outside. A little walk into town, but not too bad.

Booked this because of the great reviews to celebrate our anniversary, choose a 2 night deal from their website which was £350 for mezzanine stlyle room with Queen bed, seating area, roll top bath and walk in monsoon shower, including express breakfast, one course dinner, glass of wine and wifi. We were disappointed to find our room did not have either a Queen bed or a seating area and mentioned this to a member of staff at reception, to be told, 'a seating area is just somewhere to sit' and ' what is a Queen bed? No other rooms were available as the hotel was full, so we were disappointed we could not enjoy the room we were expecting ( we hoped to have champagne, but didn't fancy sitting on the edge of the bed). We were offered a discount and our breakfast was upgraded. The second day we were moved to a suite ( with a seating area and Queen bed - thank you HdV ) this was lovely, however the hot water went off so we were unable to use the lovely roll top bath or monsoon shower !!
The food was very nice, and the bar is great , the hotel is a bit of a walk into town, but handy for the Quay side. A bus can easily be caught and a taxi is only about £5.
The hotel decor is beautiful, and I would still return despite our issues. A nice change from Malmaison.

Stunning Bedrooms - Stayed in one of larger rooms, with double shower behind the bed and large roll top bath, comfortable bed. large window seats
Fantastic Food - breakfast was great - choice of cooked options and fresh continental breaskfast. Ate in the restaurant twice in the evening and both times was fantastic
Helpful Staff - staff at the reception were always really helpful and keen to tend to your every need. Restaurant staff were also excellent
Ideal Location - only a 5 minute walk from the Quayside which has great restaurant and bars

To sum up I would reccommend for both business and leisure. One of the best hotels I have styaed in.

As with many other Hotel du Vins this is houses in an old wharehouse on the baks of the Tyne. The coversion was excellent and rooms of very high standard. We treated ourselves to a suite which had everything you could wish for, included four speaker CD player. The building was placed in such a way as the rooms to the front had spectacular view up river, including the Millennium Bridge and the older bridges beyond, the Blatic Gallery, the Sage Concert Hall and the restored Newcastle Quayside.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the breakfast substantial and with plenty of choice.

Having heard a lot about Hotel du Vin from friends that had stayed in various ones around the country we were keen to stay in one. We stayed on a dinner bed and breakfast deal in one of thier deluxe double open plan rooms. I have to say the deal was execellent seeing as as I have no doubt that the dinner we had would have cost around £90 excluding drinks (we both had steaks they were superb).

The decor is something that makes this hotel special it's certainly a refreshing change from some of the large chain hotels which can often be very vanilla. We had a double rainfall shower and a roll-top bath in the bedroom. The bed was big I usually suffer from my feet poking out of the end of the bed but the double sleigh must have been almost as wide as it was long and amazingly comfortable. The room we had came equiped with a DVD player and an i-pod speaker system. My girlfriend regreted not bringing a collection of old movies to play while she took advantage of the roll top bath.

As I say I couldn't fault the food and the wine list is pretty extensive along with a mind boggling amount of spirits. Breakfast was also of a high standard. The only slight quibble that I would have with staying there is a nearby pub which on the Friday we stayed started playing very loud bassy music (I think it is compounded by the being under an arch) which we could hear from our room from probably around 4pm through to 10pm. However we were in the bar and restraunt from 8 and it couldn't be heard from there.

Overall I felt it was an amazing deal and would hesitate to stay in this or any other Hotel du Vin. The extra money for the dinner deal is certainly worth it.

We stayed in the Mouton Rothschild suite for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish we could stay longer. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was a separate bed for our 6 year old son. The suite was a split level room with the double rain shower and roll top bathroom on the top floor and the toilet, beds and sitting area on the ground floor. We had fantastic views from our extra large windows with excellent view of the Millenium bridge.

Staff at hotel was friendly. Our room was extremely clean and well looked after. We opted for the valet parking which was not cheap but handy as there isn't really much parking around.

Food in the restaurant was excellent. We sampled their dinner menu and enjoyed it so much we stayed for lunch the next day! Also had one of their huge cocktail selection in the bar one night. A good place to have a night cap.

All in all, had an excellent stay here and would thoroughly recommend this. We could have easily stayed a week.

I stayed at this Hotel du Vin on the Quayside in July 2009, staying for a night to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We'd already stayed at the Malmaison, HdV's sister hotel, in Edinburgh on the 'Sunday Supplement' deal (which I think HdV do too), where it's £10 to stay for a night when you spend £75 in the restaurant. We stayed at this HdV on a similar deal which represented slightly less value for money - staying Monday nights for £79, with no meal.

Nevertheless, the hotel was exquisitely presented and well furnished. The room we stayed in was particularly luxurious, with a massive stand-alone bath in the bedroom and a double shower in the bathroom. We had an interesting view out of the window of a stream, the metro line and a scrap metal works, which wasn't conventionally attractive but really encapsulated the edgy, up-and-coming atmosphere of the quayside.

Two downsides were the location, which was a little bit too far outside the centre of town to really enjoy Newcastle's nightlife. The only restaurants on the quayside seem to be mainly chains. We ended up drinking at Pitcher and Piano then eating at the sister Malmaison, but we could have done that at home really. Secondly (and only a slight niggly point about the hotel itself) was the naming of rooms with bizarre and complex names, rather than numbers. Very trendy I'm sure, but I couldn't ever remember where I was staying and was a bit frightened that I'd be struggling with the key and some irate guest would open his door!

Newcastle itself is great. I'd recommend buying hundreds of stottie cakes (flat doughy geordie bread) from Greggs to bring back on the train, and taking the Metro down to South Shields to experience 'the best fish and chip restaurant in the UK,' Colmans, which is at 182 Ocean Road. Whole journey only takes about 35 minutes from Monument and is very worthwhile.
