Second stay here was just as good as the first. We had one of the new rooms. We had to share the Bathroom but it was nice and clean. Was good value for money and it is noisy from the Nightclub downstairs but this finished at 1.30. Defenitley going back.

Just got back from staying at Manhattans and it was awful. The staff were friendly and welcoming but the rooms were not up to standard at all, 1 broken bed and a seriously dodgy tv......not great to start with but the worst thing was the noise, absolutely disgraceful. When I booked I could have never imagined that's would have been kept awake all night by the nightclub then to find everyone and anyone coming up stairs from the nightclub to carry the party on, at one point I thought It was a bloody brothel the amount of people coming and going. I will not be going back and I would really urge others not do do the same if they want to get NO sleep and piss and puke all over the shared toilet in the morning.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. You were made aware 3 times, twice from booking.com as well as when you checked in at our hotel that the hotel is situated on top of a night club and that noise will be heard, you had these 3 opportunities to cancel your booking but you never did so, neither did you express any concern when you arrived, you could see from our check in area that it was a night club, this is even stated on our website.
The bed you stated was broken was in fact a brand new bed, and im not sure how a brand new LED TV (as seen in our pictures) can be a dodgy tv!
Regarding customers coming upstairs, this is a hotel and they were guest just like you, coming in from their night out, it was the weekend after all. Our manager lives on this same floor and I assure you makes sure along with our onsite security that the only people staying here were our guests. The guests were all arriving back from their night out, they were not coming in and out as you suggest. No parties would be tolerated upstairs because as pointed out or manager lives there and would not allow any such goings on.
The toilet was NOT covered in urine and vomit as you stated, we know this for a fact because our manager uses these facilities as well and as she is in her 50s she certainly does not use a toilet that is dirty so she always ensures that it is kept clean. I think your review was nothing but a malicious one due to your failure of reading the notes on booking.com stating that there would be noise. Many if not all our guests always leave having a great night with us. Thank you once again for staying with us.

We arrived at 1am technically the day after we were suppose to check in. Luckily the bar downstairs was still open and a nice young guy helped us to our room. The room is quite spacious (3 beds when we only expected one). The rooms are very tidy and new. Obvious amount of restoration has taken place since the change in management.

The hotel is situated on top of a nightclub/bar. The area (wallsend) apparently is not the BEST area in Newcastle but for us, was good enough. It is about 5/6 Km from the actual city centre but well frequented with metro and busses. The hotel is located close to some essential shops (restaurants, bars, cafés and supermarkets).

The music was never overly loud however we only stayed 3 nights. The rooms are very clean and if we were on a major budget again I would probably return.
