The Ibis Hotel in Newcastle is well located, within walking distance of nice restaurants and shops. As has been mentioned here, the immediate surrounds are pretty run down, but it’s not a long walk to find some nicer areas. Wickham Station is just around the corner.
My room was very comfortable and a decent size. The bed was comfortable, the desk was actually big enough to work at, and the wardrobe is well designed. All the usual amenities are included. The bathroom was new and clean. All in all an excellent hotel room. Sleep quality was great – the train line passes behind the hotel, but the trains are quiet and they don’t run all night.
Inside the entrance is a restaurant offering breakfast and dinner. The place seemed comfortable enough. There was a “Discover Newcastle” terminal in the reception too – a touch screen unit that supplies information for tourists – an excellent idea.
