“Great hotel and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

Great location for St Jame's Park. China town on your doorstep and within walking distance of the train station. Great bar beneath the hotel. New and still very well presented if you are a Newcastle United supporter it is the best view ever. Nice breakfast too. Vast choice and good value if you can get it into your deal price.

It is a pleasure to find staff who really want to make your stay a good one. We were only there because of the Olympic football but I wish I could have stayed longer. It is an unusual styled hotel very modern with a full size horse with lampshade sculpture in the hall. The rooms were not big but very functional and very clean. the bed and bedding were very good quality flat screen tv fridge tea and coffee making. Coffee and tea is available free in the reception at all times. and even to take out. Bathroom well equipped included nice fluffy towels and face cloths shampoo body wash and lotion (no conditioner) Lighted magnifying mirror. tissues and good lighting. Breakfast was very good with good quality produce and everything you need for a hearty breakfast if you order before the morning you can get a discount on the breakfast. The tables in the breakfast area are very difficult to use because it is part of the bar but the quality of the breakfast out ways the negative
The staff from begining to end were the best trained staff I have come across and they are a credit to the management. Will be my No1 stay if I am in Newcastle

spent two nights at the hotel and my wife and I were really impressed with the hotel and staff.The only drawback is access,not the hotels fault,the Olympics were in town and the football stadium was all cordened off which made it a bit tricky to get checked in but we managed it.
Excellent breakfast served in the bar,which is ok,rooms clean and tidy,lovely shower,the only thing I could fault would be the A/C unit in the room,if you were a light sleeper it would probably wake you up when it started up.
would not hesitate to use this hotel again

This hotel is beautiful - over looking the football stadium. I checked in 3 hours earlier than the usual check in time and had paid by voucher with british airways avios points. The room they had booked was not yet ready but the receptionist switched rooms so we could check in there and then. Great location with a taxi into town on saturday night costing £6 - one word of warning is that taxis come to the back of the hotel if you book one from reception so don't go standing outside the front of the hotel like we did. The reception is amazing with a swing that hangs from the ceiling and lots of lovely decor. The bathroom is lovely, and the shower really powerful. The aircon in the rooms wasn't too noisy and did the job and irons, coffee making facilities etc. means you have everything for your stay. Big comfy beds. Only complaint (not really a complaint though) is that the rooms could do with a bit of a repaint.

Check in was fast but they came across like they could not really be bothered, we would have upgraded but we were not given the option. Rooms were tiny - the leather chair and footrest in our room was stained. The sharks bar is nice enough for a drink.
We would not stay again.

The hotel room was a little strange, I had a junior suite that had a kitchen, desk space, living room, bedroom and bathroom. It was very small though to cram all those areas but done quite well so that they were all functional. The bathroom is designed as a wetroom, the shower is a glassed off area which was really nice and great shower but this meant the whole bathroom floor flooded and it took several hours to drain out of the bathroom so your feet got wet everytime you went into the bathroom for anything. The service was good, and the breakfast next door in the Shark Bar was excellent with the full a-la-carte menu available as part of the hotel breakfast.

The very helpful staff made me and my one year old very comfortable. I stayed for three nights and all was looked after very well. The rooms are well catered for in all respects including a microwave in the room which suited me for warming things for the baby, an iron and iron board which I used a lot. The breakfast in the rest was very sumptuous though for a charge. The temp control in the room was very useful. Not to mention the location. Perfect in all respects.

Room Tip: I tried both the king room and the junior suite. The junior suite for a little more is a great room...
