“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013 via mobile

Stayed here while we visited Newcastle. The location is great easy access to the city for shopping and restaurants. No parking on site so we parked in station car park for £15 per day which if you compare with London parking is quite reasonable (although having been to the metro centre where parking was free makes you think why not in the city). We booked a Penthouse room which was brilliant. Girls on the desk were very friendly and helpful. Found reviews on trip adviser to be correct which made us book this hotel and we will definitely return again maybe next time by train as its next door to the station. My only comment is that it would be nice to have a fan over or near the bed as the noise from the trains means you cant open the windows if you are hot . We still got a good nights sleep however as the bed was so comfortable it didn't really affect us too much.Would highly recommend staying here!!

I have stayed in some really fabulous hotels over the years but not really done the appart/hotel thing. Stayed in Newcastle rooms for 2 nights last weekend and thought it was great. Friar House is a lovely building and we were really pleased to see that Roomzzz had kept many of the original features. The hotel is really beautiful and yet very practical. Had a Grab and Go breakfast first day and made a cooked breakfast ourselves the next day. Very relaxing. The staff were really welcoming and helpful. Dined out in pub and a lovely restaurant on the Quayside. Despite the weather we had a really lovely weekend. Will try this apparthotel again as we love Newcastle.

Beautiful little boutique hotel! Couldn't believe how mod con it was. In a central location, right next to the train station and not too far away from shops etc.

Staff were really friendly and helpful. No cooked breakfast but couldn't fault it for an 'apartment hotel'

Wonderful!!!

We stayed here for 1 night in a superior apartment. The apartment was located in the basement and was spacious with a comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. It was very good value and would have got 5 stars but for one or two little problems. The sound proofing was not great, you could hear people walking around upstairs and there was a constant noise of water which could have been from the heating system. The bathroom complimentary toiletries were miserly, we had one small tube of shower gel and of shampoo between two people. Apart from that we had a very enjoyable stay.

We have previously stayed at Roomzz in Leeds and love staying in apartments rather than hotel rooms. This is very plush and much nicer than the Leeds one. We were greeted straightaway on arrival and checked in quickly. The studio was large with lovely plush interior. The kitchen was great, the oven was excellent and spotless. There was no oven glove or dish cloth which was a bit annoying. There was a bedside alarm clock which went off each morning at 9, which was annoying and we couldnt work out how to de activate it. The bed was lovely and comfy and great to lie and watch the large tv on. The thing that let our stay down was the noise from the room above. They stomped for miles around their room. It started at 7am both days for a couple of hours and at night before bed. It was very noisy and i was unable to sleep through it. So whenever they were awake we had to be too. Not sure how they managed to walk so much in that space. The grab and go breakfast was ok and there was still some left prior to leaving on Sunday to take with us, but it is very basic. We usually stay at Staybridge apartments in Newcastle, and I think I would choose it above Roomzz, but I would stay here again if Staybridge was full.

We booked this place on the back of the Trip Advisor high grades. Trust me that I would not award 5 stars unless it was merited if anything I was looking for reasons not to.

Check in was quick, easy and provided with a smile. The smile was shared by every member of staff throughout our stay.

We booked the Penthouse Suite which was huge, light, modern and fitted with every comfort you could need. We felt like Royalty in there. The location was perfect sitting between the Quayside and the city centre. We put our car in the train station car park long stay which cost £30 for 3 days. We could access everything on foot. The study with imac included was a great touch. We played our tunes and updated our social media feeds (cos thats what we like) on the imac and with 2 flatscreen tvs in the lounge and bedroom of our suite we relaxed quickly and easily

The only negatives would be the view which unless you are a train buff means you cant see too many pretty sights. I feel the grab and grow greakfast could include a bit more variety but that will improve over time with more feedback.

Roomzzz is an excellent alternative to the traditional hotel and I believe is ideal for those who want a great base for a city or business break.

Came here with my husband for Valentines day and when we entered our room I couldn't believe how big and spacious it was WE HAD A KITCHEN! I remember saying to my husband ate you sure we got the right room its nicer than our old flat! The bed was sooo comfy the rooms were stunning! Staff were lovely even when I slept In and missed breakfast they made us up a pastery and fruit bag! THE ONLY thing that was missing that I do miss that other hotels do is a cooked breakfast! But you may start doing that in the future ! On the whole I simply cannot fault this hotel ! Will defenetly be returning and to the people reading this wanting to stay on Newcastle STAY AT ROOMZZZ!
