We just stayed in this hotel in-between Christmas and New Year. We had a family room which had two double beds and was a really good size. There didn't seem to be a lot around the hotel but we were shopping and dining in Newcastle and used it as a base. The taxi into Newcastle in the evening was £6 which seemed reasonable. The hotel is also near the Gateshead shopping centre.
It was a lot quieter than staying in Newcastle so if you don't mind being a short drive away it might be a better option.
