We stayed in Newcastle for three nights for a meeting connected with my wife's business.
This hotel is quite literally only 3 minutes walk from the train station on the edge of the Graingertown area. It is ideally located for shopping, for the football or for visiting the pubs, restaurants and clubs of Newcastle.
Our first impressions were very favourable. A light, stylish reception area with helpful and knowledgable staff in colourful uniforms. After just a few minutes, we were on our way to our rooms.
We had a room on the first floor at the back looking out on the car park. Other colleagues had rooms on the road side but they found those to be noisy due to the clientelle from the nearby club. So our recommendation as a result would be to ask for a room on the car park side.
The room was fantastic. The bathroom was very good with a wet room style shower instead of one of those shower over a bath things which I never find pleasing. It has a fixed rainfall shower head as well as a hand-held shower head. While I liked the bathroom, the only two faults I had with the hotel room were in here. A towel rail was slightly loose and the shaving mirror was loose and therefore totally useless for shaving with. Come on, fix these. Room 109, they need fixing!
The remainder of the room was excellent. A lovely, large, comfortable bed. Plenty of space in the wardrobe both for hanging clothes and drawer space for smalls. There was a room safe and a mini bar stocked with gratis soft drinks, water and snacks.. The TV was excellent and there was even an iPod docking station. Oh, and did I mention the free wifi. I'll say that again. FREE WIFI!
The thing that frustrates me most on trips away from home is the ridiculous charges for wifi yet his inexpensive chain has wifi included in the price. This is the future but it is here right now.
We only ate breakfast in the hotel. All our other meals were taken out as Newcastle is blessed with a great choice of eateries. Each day we had a fantastic full english breakfast served at our table.
We know we want to return to Newcastle and we know that when we do, we will stay in Hotel Indigo.
