Stayed here during a mid-week business trip to Newcastle. Location is great and obviously very near to the train station (hence the hotel name). Inside it is clearly and old and established hotel and the lobby etc is Rey much in the tradition of old grand hotels. The room I stayed in was very very small (a small double) and subsequently a bit too hot for me but despite this it was quite a nice room and had almost everything I wanted. It had an iron but no ironing board which was a bit frustrating as I tried to iron a shirt on the laminated pine effect chest of drawers. I actually think that this not only annoying but a bit of a fire risk as I am sure the furniture was not designed to have a hot iron on it. There was room for an ironing board so not sure why they didn't supply one. Had a good nights sleep despite overlooking the station - couldn't hear trains so that was good. Recommended for anyone staying in the area but do check out what size of room you want.
