I stayed in the hotel in a superior double for nearly 5 months when contracting in the region. The rooms were large and well furnished with a useful desk and fridge that was stocked with mineral water and chocolate by the staff each morning.
The hotel staff all seemed to be very happy and a friendly bunch and it showed in the service provided, that was always good from the manager down to the cleaners.
The location is perfect if you need to get to work or visit the city as its a real hub for trains, buses and the metro. Most of the decent pubs and other good restaurants of Newcastle are a very easy walk away from the hotel (e.g. in Quayside).
I had many meals in the restaurant on weekdays over the months and the food in the hotel is pretty good and of consistent quality. I particularly liked the soups and the lamb! The bar attached to the restaurant is quiet and comfortable.
A real bonus is the leisure club which includes a nice pool, sauna and steam room. Great for chilling out after a hard days work or sightseeing, followed by a nice meal. The restaurant takes orders until fairly late which is handy.
All in all they made my lengthy stay away from home very pleasant and I highly recommend the hotel.
