“OK, but nothing special.”
Reviewed 19 June 2005

Booked this hotel as somewhere to stay whilst on a shopping spree in Newcastle. It's easy to find, right off the motorway.

The room was reasonable at £52 for a double (excl breakfast) booking in advance. Checkin was quick, and I was provided with a 1/2 bottle of wine as a platinum member of priorityclub (many holiday inn's don't recognise the status).

Only problem was that I had booked a room with a sofabed but was given a standard room without a sofa. Would have been nice to have the extra space, however the standard room was clean, well furnished and it seems the bathroom had been recently refurbished. The bathroom was a bit on the small side, but the room was spacious.

Included minibar + trouser press. Plenty of space to hang clothes up.

Don't get confused with the Holiday Inn Express, which is next door. The Holiday Inn is the tall building located between the Express and the Campanile, just off the A1(M). The location is good, and although the car park at the front of the hotel is almost always full there is a huge one around the back.

Inside, the reception doubles as a bar, and just off this is the restaurant where the food is good and "meal deals" are almost always on offer (for example, buy three courses for £10.) The staff are all extremely friendly, and the service is good.

The rooms are generally of a decent size but the hotel seems to be undergoing refurbishment. Some rooms are fabulous, whereas others look a little tatty. The televisions have the usual five channels, some Sky, pay movies, and there is also an interactive service where you can play Playstation games. You also have a minibar to keep you occupied.

A nice place to stay, then, but for a Holiday Inn I'd expect a little more in the way of facilties, hence the reduced score. To be honest, the only real difference between this place and the Express down the road is that this has a restaurant and a bar inside the building.

I stayed here on a stag do with some of my friends.

There was a broad age range so we wanted somewhere that was near the city - 8 miles and that was quite.

Just wanted to change there and sleep.

Staff were friendly, hotel was clean and breakfast was good.

V. Good Holiday Inn!
