Very nice modern hotel, located just next to the football stadium (something to be aware of on Saturdays if Newcastle are playing at home). Nice central location, but no underground car park (one available across the street that is half public/ half available to hotel guests at £8 per day).
Amazing reception area, very classy and modern design. Excellent 24 hours service available, nice bedrooms with tea making facilities but lacking attention to detail in terms of expectations from a 'posh hotel' (shelf tilted in the bathroom so things slide off gradually, very noisy heater, had to wait 5 minutes for hot water to come in the morning to shower, biscuits not replenished next day etc.)
Would recommend, but not if you are a perfectionist.

Hi MaiaM256

Thank you for taking your time to write a review on your recent stay here at the Sandman hotel.

We have such a central location to the city centre and it is brilliant if you are a football fan! Our reception area is pretty spectacular and always catches peoples eyes!

Our bedroom facilities are handy as well for making a nice cup of tea and we can always replenish as many biscuits as you like! Reception will always be happy to help.

We hope that you can stay with us again in the future!

Regards

My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel last night as we were attending a function at St James Park, this was a treat as we live local but as it's nearly his birthday I wanted to book the hotel as a surprise for his birthday. I booked it several weeks ago and requested a room on the higher floors with a view of St James Park. We got just that, the room was lovely although small, very clean and well presented, the gentleman on the desk wished my fiancé happy birthday for when it arrived and was very friendly. To our surprise there was a complimentary bottle of champagne chilling in ice in the room as a birthday wish from the hotel which we were over the moon at. We both would recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there again - thank you to all at The Sandman Hotel for making our visit an enjoyable one.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking St James Park have a great view.

We booked to stay as a large group for a weekend away .

Location is literally across the road from the football ground, 3 min walk from tiger tiger bar area and 5/10 mins to the shops! Perfect!

The booking process was very simple and all rooms were put on the same floor. Check in was quick and simple and the staff were LOVELY. :)

First impressions of the hotel are fab the main reception area is so stylish yet inviting!!!Great free hot drinks machine in the reception!

I had booked a room for 3 adults however there was two of everything ( common problem in hotels I find) but this was quickly rectified.

Room included a microwave, toaster hob with all pans etc that were needed should you want to cook - we didnt-.Main advantage was the fridge freezer as it meant we could store all the drinks :) & Ice machine and ice buckets were available.

Due to it being a room for 3 adults we had a double bed and a sofa bed. I have to agree with others the sofa bed was not very comfy :( i tired the actual beds which were bliss but il be honest and say i struggled to get a good night sleep on the springs! Also due to the sofa bed we had no room to move about and getting to the desk meant climbing over the bed. I know we could have packed the bed away but it was a hassle to get it out again in the early hours when we returned to sleep

The main problem was the lack of privacy with the bathroom. The bathroom door is a frosted glass sliding door which sits right by the head of the bed so if someone is in bed or sitting on the bed they can see/hear when you are in the bathroom which is just not ideal at all. All of the girls mentioned how off putting this was..... Also, the door didnt seal shut -1cm gap between the door and the wall- so you can see straight into the bathroom from the room....

We had drinks in the shark bar and the cocktails although a tad expensive were lovely. again the staff we met all made us feel welcome and helped with enquirers about the best bar to go to later!

we had breakfast in the cafe/bar behind the hotel - i cannot remember the name you simply go out of the hotel via the back door - as it was much cheaper than the hotel.

Didnt manage to use the gym but like the idea of it :)

To conclude I would 100% return to this hotel with a partner or just one other person as the staff and location were fab just wish they would have designed the bathroom door better or replace the door with solid wood? The staff are all an asset to this place!

Hi LuciePop

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us. I'm happy to hear that your group had a brilliant weekend!

Our suite rooms are really handy for groups looking to cook a quick meal before a night out on the town!

Sorry to hear that there weren't enough items in the room for the three adults, but I'm glad to hear that it got rectified quickly.

The frosted sliding door leading to the bathroom is a modern design feature of the hotel, unfortunately this cannot be changed but I will pass your comments onto management.

It's so lovely to hear such fantastic comments about our staff members! We really are lucky to have such hard working passionate staff here at the Sandman. I will be sure to pass your comments on.

We would love to see you here again in the future!

Regards

Good Hotel- great views and terrific shower. Bar is excellent for sports and parking good. Could be better for wheelchair users and wheeled luggage. Would go back and excellent values for money. Smallish rooms but well appointed.

The hotel was brilliant and the staff amazing! You were treated like an individual customer and nothing was too much trouble. All such lovely people. Well situated for train station and town centre. Breakfast was superb! couldn't fault the study overall, one of THE best hotels I've stayed, will definitely be back. Made my families stay and dads 75th birthday even more special particularly helping to get tickets to the Newcasykd match!
