We stayed here as part of a large group for a stag weekend in November 2011. We found the hotel to be of a generally high quality and if anything, better than expected!
Being a stag group they asked us to provide 1) a deposit of £25 per person and 2) sign a waiver form, with the money returned at the end of our stay. Our rooms were ready for us on arrival, and they were all furnished to a reasonable standard. Two of our group rooms had problems - one had a broken bed, and another had a leak from the ceiling during the night. The hotel acted quickly to sort these problems out for us, which was good. My room was relatively large, though I think a few of the others found their rooms a little smaller, but all were a decent size for a quick overnight stay. See photos for more information.
All the public areas, corridors and rooms were reasonably modern in their decor, and rooms included towels, tea/coffee, toiletries etc. There is free wifi throughout the hotel which was easy to use, and a nice extra. We didn't use the restaurant but we did make use of the bar, which was well stocked. There were a few parts of the reception area to sit and enjoy a drink, which was good.
All the hotel staff, from reception to the night security staff, were friendly and helpful. This is an area that people come for wild nights out, but despite the drunkeness the atmosphere in the hotel was friendly and reflected people enjoying themselves.
If I was returning to Newcastle for a night out, I'd definitely consider this hotel again.
