"I'm very surprised to read previous reviews of the hotel needing a deep clean. We thought the absolute opposite. It was immaculate. This included our room, the communal areas, including a lovely lounge in reception with large screen TV, and the breakfast room. Our room was a small double (we knew this on booking) but it was plenty big enough for an overnight stay, was beautifully decorated, cosy, warm and had a great shower. There were two small wardrobes, a large wall mounted flat screen TV, ironing board and iron, hairdryer, portable digital heater (as well as central heating) and a large fan (catering for all weathers) . We managed to make the best use of parking at the back of the hotel due to other considerate guests and helpful staff. There is enough room for 6 cars so it is first come first served and it does say this on the website. The breakfast had a great choice of continental and hot food but again as it says on the website, they don't do any meat options so don't come here expected a full English. I ordered a freshly cooked omelette and it was lovely. Breakfast staff were very attentive and friendly. We would definitely stop here again over other hotels we have stayed in in the area. It is three stops on the metro from the City Centre taking 5 minutes and it is worth staying just outside of the city for the great location in Jesmond with lovely bars and restaurants (the number one restaurant in Newcastle is a 2 minute walk away and was amazing - please see my separate review of Saray). My son is at uni in Newcastle and lives locally - he says you could walk it from the city centre to the hotel in less than half an hour. It was excellent value for money. You definitely get what you pay for here and more in our opinion."
"We stayed here last night, it was OK, but looked very tired and in need of a good clean. There were signs of mildew in the bathroom, cracks and holes which had been roughly filled in. The floor boards were really creaky and we could hear next doors TV and the room above us. The fire doors to the corridors banged loudly, so it isn’t the quietest of hotels, despite saying that it was soundproofed. We chose the hotel because it had parking, however, because other guests had parked inconsiderately, we could not access the car park, in order to use one of the available spaces. Maybe this isn’t the hotels fault, but, the cctv was being closely monitored at reception, so it would’ve been easy to approach the guest to ask them to use the spaces properly, before they disappeared out for the day/night. We parked down one of the side streets, about a 2 min walk away, which wasn’t too bad. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable and the receptionist was lovely. We decided against breakfast, so can’t offer comments there. The location was ideal and the price was reasonable, but, you definitely get what you pay for."
"I had to come to Jesmond unexpectedly as my son was taken into hospital, so was a last minute booking ! The hotel was clean, warm and welcoming. The staff were so friendly and polite esp Kim Georgia and Mohammed for which I thank them all!"
