What a lovely surprise ! Seriously whenever I find a little location like this I just have to tell the world about it! This is one of ‘those’ hotels which will be at the forefront of revenue income in the years to come purely because its good ! First the context – we went to Sleeperz as we were heading to the Bruce Springsteen gig at the Stadium of Light (which was legendary btw!). We needed a cheapish but nice place near to the train station so that we could get our head down or after the show for an early start back on the train to work the next day. The hotel is 4 mins walk away form the train station just head out of the mian entrance and turn right down to Westgate Rd and it is slightly tucked away so you have to keep walking a bit before you stumble on to it from the station. It was cold and wet and we needed to be heated and cheered before we headed off to see The Boss. Straight away we were greated with the Newcastle friendly charm that really, genuinely, honestly made us feel welcome. Even though there were tonnes of people in front of us we only had to wait a couple of mins and were checked in within 30 secs (nice). All information that you need to know about the hotel is given to you in the cover for the key card and the staff are very informative and welcoming. The place was rammed with Springsteen fans (seriously busy) who were making use of the bar facilities and at no time did we feel that the hotel staff gave us any thing except a warm and professional welcome. I have read the other reviews here where the Stag/hen night brigade may have gotten a rough ride by the staff. To be honest I don’t belive it – I don’t think that the staff are that kind of people – however this is NOT the hotel for the Stag/Hen night brigade. The reason for this is that the rooms are tightly packed together that any party in the rooms (loud noise in the corriders etc) would simply destroy it for the rest of the customers. That said the rooms are superb – yes this is a budget hotel but th double bed was so comfortable that I had a great nights sleep in it and the shower unit was not a pod (yes it was small) but it was a small shower etc. My only issue was that the frosted glass on the toilet door was not frosted enough so I had to suffer the indignity of watching my partner taking a dump as I tried to relax on the bed before the gig (jeez!) – but other than that I would heartily recommended this hotel. The only negative point about the entire trip was that we had to travel back to Birmingham on a Virgin train (which was hell - so will write a review about that in due course !)
