“Great Value for money”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Paid £55 for a double room, for that price we had a really large room (room 10) with a large ensuite also.
Not disturbed at all in the night very quiet, although we did stay on a Thursday so possibly louder over the weekend. Only complaint was the room was very warm in the night, but that didn't ruin the stay.

Overall a lot more than i expected for the price paid.

Room Tip: Room 10 is very large, street facing but no problem with noise.

This was my second stay at the Osborne in Jesmond. I had a spacious single room on the second floor.

My only quibble was that the shower cubicle was grubby which, with better cleaning, would be absolutely fine and the mattress a little soft. The rest of the room was spotless.

The staff were nice the area is good.

It was ok for a one night business trip.

The Osborne Hotel is largely a “no frills” operation, but as a result can offer very competitive prices for the area. Those prices include an excellent cooked breakfast and a fairly convenient location, just one Metro stop from the central area of Newcastle.

The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from Jesmond Metro station (although it took me longer than that the first time as the Metro station exit can be quite confusing, so even after consulting the “local area” map at the exit of the station I had to get oriented first).

The room I had was fairly small, with a shower, small flat screen TV and only a stool rather than a chair to sit on – but the bed was comfortable enough, and the room temperature OK. Although my room faced the road, it was far back enough to mean that road noise wasn’t a problem.

As long as people don’t expect the gushing sort of welcome they might get in some hotels they won’t have a problem with the staff, but there can be an issue if other guests aren’t considerate when they return to their rooms after a late night / early morning.

the hotel's about 20 mins walk from the city centre, or 10-15 if you walk to the local station and take the metro

it's on a busy road, but otherwise the area's very pleasant and there's a lovely restaurant next door

the room I had was small, but clean and contemporary - the bathroom was looking a bit dated, but was clean

staff were helpful and friendly, the cooked breakfast is also quite decent

for the money, I think it's good value

I was in Newcastle for 2 nights for business. I got a single room in this hotel. The was quite small but was clean and with comfortable beds. My room was on the front side, so there was some noise (nothing major) from trucks passing by around 7 in the morning on the adjacent road. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the Jesmond Metro station. There are a number of restaurants up the road from the hotel, mostly upmarket.
Breakfast was in the restaurant next door. There was cereal, some canned fruits and cooked breakfast at request (all included).
The staff were super friendly, courteous and helpful. Overall, a good stay.

Room Tip: choose a room on the rear side for reduced road noise

The hotel is situated in an excellent area with many great bars and places to eat. It's an ideal location if u are running in the great north run as it is only 10 mins walk from the start. Not a place I would stay with my wife however great for a lads weekend.
