We had to go to Newcastle to pick up my son's gear from Uni halls. I had wanted to stay with the YHA, but there isn't one, and TravelLodge would have charged me £160 for that night (with parking charges on top) whereas these room were £30.
It was cheap, clean, and quiet.
The building is a big stone Victorian pile around which a poorer 1960's neighbourhood has crept up. The bedrooms were plain, airy and clean, with interesting wiring as they couldn't bury it in the stone walls. The passageways were a bit of a warren, but it's an older building so you expect it to have some character. We shared a bathroom with an excellent shower. The common sitting room was pleasant, and the breakfast (continental) and breakfast room were good.
Parking was ample (and free). Straightforward location to drive to and from (not like the central Travel Lodge).
We got a taxi to the centre of town for £7 (no metro in this area).More
