I stayed here for the night with my Dad, overnigthing at the Holiday Inn Newcastle - Jesmond after the Bruce Springsteen concert at Sunderland's Stadium of Light. The hotel is in a fantastic location, just off the A167M, the main trunk road through Newcastle, roughly 100 yeards from Jesmond Metro Station, meaning Newcastle City Centre is only 5 minutes away, and the Airport, Coast and Sunderland are all within half an hours reach by public transport from the hotel - Perfect location. The hotel is on a busy main road, but I didn't see this a problem (although I did request upon booking a quiet room). Plenty of parking spaces too!
The hotel is very modern and clean, and reception was very inviting. We arrived at half 12 and were told our room wasn't ready, and were told to come back roughly an hour later. We made our way to the bar opposite reception, and inquring about more drinks than the rather limited selection they had at this bar, the man behind the bar told me of another bar further down the corridor, again which was great, and incredibly cheap for a hotel bar - £2-3.50 for a pint (depending on which you opt for.)
Upon check in we were given room 243, a twin with two single beds, plasma screen TV hung on the wall, safe, iron, ironing board, hairdryer, and although we didn't use it, I felt the media centre and Ipod docking station was a great touch. Bathroom was a little on the small size, yet this didn''t bother us, everything was very clean and modern, cannot grumble in any way! Breakfast service was fine, good selection, once again cannot fault it.
This is the 4th hotel I've stopped in in Newcastle and probably the best, service, comfort, quality. Good transportation option and the rest of Tyne and Wear is easily accesible. What more could you want?
