Myself and my partner have just returned from an overnight stay at the royal station hotel in newcastle and would be happy to return, when looking for a hotel in newcastle we had specific requirements including city centre location and a swimming pool, with not a great deal of choice of hotels fulfilling these needs we decided to book the royal but we were a little apprehensive as it looked like a very old hotel and we usually go for something more modern, we travelled by train and the hotel location was excellent, on arrival we were very impressed by the grand entrance and amazing chandelier that welcomes you, we both commented how you feel like you have gone back in time and submerged into the grand and ellaborate Victorian era which made a nice change from the cold sharp lines of some new hotels, reception staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable, the only downside was the room being very warm with no air con and the old sash windows cannot be openend so it did get very warm during the night, the leisure facilities were very nice with an amazingly warm jacuzzi and the staff again were very friendly, to our surprise this old lady of a hotel is a great place to stay and we will definitely stay again.
