“Hen Weekend”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Very centrally located staff very nice and hotel bar livello is lovely. Had a room on 10th floor and the view was lovely. Was given 241 cocktail vouchers on arrival which was a nice touch. Cannot comment on food as did not eat in hotel. Some of our group used the Spa facilities and the hotel have a local beautician come in and the girls had some treatments done which they were very happy with. Overall was a lovely stay in Newcastle.

A stay with my partner was a gift from my parents at Christmas, much appreciated as working for myself means very little time off. The gift included a free bottle of wine if eating in the hotel in the evening, and breakfast. We ventured out in the evening instead (to the Fat Buddha, 5 mins walk) because the hotel food was quite expensive - nothing out of the ordinary there for hotels though so not a complaint.

The staff were very attentive, nothing too much to ask. A bit of noise the next morning as we were staying above a room being refurbished but that's only temporary and didn't disturb our sleep. We had the cooked breakfast each (also included in the gift) which was very nice, additional toast was no trouble.

The building itself is very nice, well located for the city centre, and parking outside was easy. It didn't bother us but the only issue some people may have is the regular train movements on the bridge above, you know the type when a huge East Midlands mainline train rolls into the station nearby...

The room had everything we needed, decor slightly dated, but well presented. Bathroom was immaculate, albeit a little short of toiletries so was a good job we packed some of our own. A little more attention to housekeeping would have secured a higher score - I dropped my phone at the side of the bed and actually had to wash it; the carpet was very dusty as if only the main walk-through areas have ever been hoovered.

A very firm 7/10.

Not so easy to locate with satnav once in Newcastle & then had to drive round again to get to main carpark where main entrance is. Needs better street signs to Hotel. Room not ready on arrival but offered refreshments while waited. Dissapointing staff gave no information in the event of fire alarms going off (went of 4 times thro night) or given the choice of morning calls/papers/breakfast times.Room quiet clean (some dust on lamps/bed headboard/top doors). Very sparse with tea/coffee/milk/biscuits in room. Tv does need replacing as does the decor & pillows. Feel some staff in need of further training in customer care. Over all had lovely stay dispite the ongoing refurbishments.

Room Tip: Go for room 1012 great views across the Tyne. Very relaxing!!!

Stayed here with my girlfriend on Valentine's and thankfully we weren't disappointed. A wonderful location and even though it is close to the railway, also incredibly quiet. It was ideal for us who would tend to pop our and back regularly during the day. The staff were typically friendly and welcoming. You won't likely be disappointed staying here. Check lastminute.com for great prices.

We stayed on a Friday night cheapy so value very good. Decor a little tired but squeaky clean. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast and great location (traditional pub opposite). Evening meal not too much choice but excellent quality. Would book again
