We stayed here over the Easter weekend on our first visit to Newcastle. First off it's right on the river Tyne in front of the bridge, our room had this amazing view!!
It's five minutes uphill walk into the city centre and Gateshead is just over the Tyne Bridge.
Our room was a decent size, with a sofa and coffee table and a very comfortable bed. It also had a fridge but there were holes in the wall where the trouser press had been, and the wallpaper was dated but to be fair there was a letter in the room from the management stating that they were in the middle of refurbishment which should be completed soon. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and a full size flat screen tv on the wall, wifi in the rooms which I had no trouble connecting straight to. Bathroom was a decent size, again the shower was a bit dated but we also had a bath, and there was loads of hot water and white company toiletries.
We didn't eat in the hotel so we can't comment on the restaurant, but the bar was really nice and comfortable, with average hotel prices.There is also a cocktail bar with an outside courtyard which was very busy both the nights we were there.It also has a 'Sky Lounge' on the 12th Floor but we were disappointed to hear it was for private parties only, shame, the view up there must be really good!!
All the staff we dealt with were friendly and efficient, we really enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it for a city break in Newcastle. We liked the fact that it was independently owned, we thought it was lovely!
There is a Wetherspoons on the riverside 5 minutes walk away called the Quayside, with outside seating, and loads of bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity, yet we found the hotel to be quiet even late on Saturday night, so you definitely get a good night's sleep!!
