The reception desk at this modern brand new hotel sets the scene for what is a really enjoyable well situated hotel in Newcastle's city centre. The people who work here are really exceptional the Australian at the reception desk and her colleagues all couldn't do enough for us and this hotel is brillantly managed so that everything runs like clockwork.
We stayed for two nights over a weekend to visit our son who was working there for a few weeks after a long stint abroad.
This place has a number of huge plusses.
1. The rooms are delightful, very well appointed with beautiful Egyptian cotton bed sheets, excellent television and lovely bathroom.
2, The convenient car park is really a huge asset - on two levels - suggest you enter by the first entrance rather than the lower second. The parking spaces are wider and this level is more convenient for the hotel.
3. The foyer is lovely and has an array of very comfortable luxury seating
4. The restaurant is a real treat with an exciting practical menu. Low cost eating of the highest order.
5. The position, very close to riverside and to the main railway station.
We also ate at No6 in the Baltic across the river with its stunning views. Hardly cheap, but good value for money with an excellent wine list.More
