This is a pretty standard hotel in the Premier Travel Inn chain and the rooms reflect that. However the standard is good and the rooms were clean with a good shower in the bathroom.
It's located on what used to be the A69 dual carraigeway through Gateshead, it's really only accessible by car, so it's a good location for getting to the Metro Centre, but not if you are intending to go on foot! Nearby there is a Frankie & Bennies and TGI Fridays, but even though they were a short distance away we had trouble getting there without a car, having to climb over fences etc!
The rooms themselves were the usual Travel Inn fayre, which I rate as very good, however when we stayed there they looked like they needed a refurbishment as damage on the walls had just been patched over rather than redone properly. I'd stayed in other Premier Travel Inn's a few weeks before that which had been redecorated, so perhaps by the time you read this Gateshead will have been done too.
Next door to the hotel is a Brewers Fayre pub, which serves nice, if a little overpriced, meals and drinks.
