When Mrs.Trouserpress and I checked in for our first-ever stay at Indigo on Friday 4th July I was resigned to another sleepless night in a Newcastle city-centre hotel. The reception desk is right next to the bar, and by 6pm it was busy and noisy. Once we had checked in (Mrs Trouserpress nodding and smiling at the Receptionist's friendly chat without really hearing any of it), we were very pleased by our room (204) despite its dismal view over a bookie's shop. It was very attractively decorated and furnished, and well equipped; the in-room fridge even containing a few complimentary snacks and soft drinks. Unusually for a hotel the free wifi worked consistently well. But best of all, after a pleasant evening in town, we both enjoyed a good night's sleep without any of the wooping and screaming from the streets below which often plagues city centre hotels at weekends. Breakfast was delicious too, freshly-prepared and cheerfully served.
So our first stay won't be our last, and I won't need to resort to the old Trouserpress trick of stuffing my ears with wet bog paper and jamming a pillow over my head to get some rest.
