The most important thing to say about the Premier Inn is that I was placed in a room directly across from the entrance to the night club opposite on a Friday night, and the hubbub was such that I didn’t get to sleep until approx 02.30.
If you have a hotel facing a nightclub like this, then you simply have to have better sound insulation.
Fortunately, I was in Newcastle for a 15.00 football match, and was therefore able to take advantage of the 12.00 checkout to claw-back some of my missed sleep – and the hotel gave me a full refund with very little question on Saturday morning, which is a large reason why this review is so positive, despite my issues.
The hotel is a large, hulking, Premier Inn convert, rather than a new build, perched on the edge of the city centre, up against the A167(M), a short walk from Monument Metro Station, 15 minutes from St James’s Park and the station, and a similar distance downhill to the quayside and Baltic/Sage in Gateshead.
The room was small, with little space around a king-size bed and a small, but functional, bathroom. As ever with Premier Inn, everything was clean and the fixtures and fittings were in good condition.
The public areas were well-lit and in good condition, with a large restaurant and 2 separate bar areas, and an integral multi-storey car park that offers free-parking from 17.00-08.00 (albeit the car park is locked 00.00-07.00) and a reasonable day-rate from hotel reception.
I would be happy to return on a weeknight or if the hotel could assure me of a room away from the nightclub at the weekend.
