Stayed here for one night on business at the University of Northumbria. Very conveniently located 1 metro stop from the centre, and a 5 minute walk from the metro stop. Looks very new from the outside, and a nice bright welcoming foyer, with friendly staff at reception. Rooms are nicely decorated, not chainy-looking at all, with a bath in every one, comfortable bed, fast and free wi-fi and digital plasma tv.
After a great night's sleep, i was looking forward to my free cooked breakfast, but firstly they didn't have my room on their list, secondly they sat me down at a table that wasn't properly laid, and thirdly didn't ask me if i wanted tea or coffee and toast, when everyone else that came in was. There weren't any glasses at the juice station, and despite it only being 9 o'clock and 1 hour of breakfast service to go, there wasn't much choice of cooked breakfast at the buffet. The egg and beans dishes had the lids on and were too hot to remove, there was no-one behind the counter to take them off for you.
I only booked this for the Priority club reward points but i wouldn't hesitate to come again, (and get up a bit earlier next time!) There are so many hotels in Newcastle but if you can get a good rate here book it.
