The Regal Villas are located in Birmingham Gardens, Newcastle, near the University. They are appalling.
On arrival we found hairs on the sheets, clumps of hair on the towels, some half eaten noodles on the windowsill (along with several dirty glasses), a balcony littered with cigarette butts and a half eaten/half rotten jar of tomatoes on the balcony too. This place is filthy.
To boot, it is right above a noisy road, the mattresses are covered with extra comfortable plastic sheets, there is little hot water and the 'garage' is fully under construction despite being advertised on their website. It also advertises a 'full kitchen', which is code for fridge, microwave and a hot plate in the cupboard.
Several others have noted the management is disorganised. We got a call hours after we had checked in asking us what time we would be arriving to pick up to the key.
At 7:15am the next morning the cleaner opened the door, without knocking or waiting, waking us up and telling us 'But didn't you have an early checkout?'
But perhaps the best part we discovered when we got home. Overnight at the 'villas' I had left my laptop to charge on the 'kitchen' counter (don't count on the kitchen, by the way, it is a generous name for what they provide). When we got home, we found a cockroach in my computer....and we NEVER have cockroaches at our place. Twenty minutes later I was working on my laptop and a cockroach crawled out of it in front of my eyes!!!
Yes, the filthy villas had invested my laptop with cockroaches. At least a half a dozen came out before the stopped appearing.
Enough said, stay clear. You've been warned!!!
