This hotel was no doubt absolutely fantastic back in the day. Still a fine building today but needing up dating. Expensive for what you get from the actual hotel, ie the rooms are pretty small and the bed was rock hard and if anyone above walked about the floorboards creaked like a scene from a horror movie. The place had a bit of a stale whiff about it too, maybe I'm being picky ? but it is such a lovely old building and deserves better imho. Don't expect nice views, our window lifted 6 inches, most of the panes were cracked and all we could see were dimps and a slate roof.
What you do get is the location which is unbeatable when visiting Newcastle. Newcastle is a fantastic city for a weekend break, highly recommended for a husband and wife getaway. Straight off the train and in to the hotel. Loads of great bars and restaurants literally right outside and the shops a 5 minute walk away. We stayed for one night, a Saturday and the location was perfect.
