Great night away

Check in staff were extremely friendly including the bar staff. The room was very comfortable with a great view but the robes could have done with abit of softener! No complaints though and would recommend to all.

Great views of the Tyne

We only spent one night at the hotel but really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is great for the Quayside area. When we were there the hotel was being refurbished, so one lift was out of action causing a few delays. The furniture in the room was also looking a little outdated and worn, but there was a letter in the room to explain that this was being looked at as part of the overall refurbishment.

Pluses outweight minuses

The hotel (which does need to be updated - as they are planning to do) is located right on the River Tyne. It is just a short walk (uphill) to the center of town but far better to watch the tide roll in and out on the river then be located elsewhere. There is a outdoor market on Sunday, two minutes walk, along the Quay. I was shocked that the hotel (that size) did not have a single converter from American plug to British. After purchasing one at the train station, I realized my computer's plug would not fit into the converter's "mouth". Colin, who I spoke to at the front desk, went way out of his way to fix the converter and help look for a telephone charger (which I had also forgotten). This made up for the fact that no one was able (or interested) in helping earlier in the day. I dined at the restaurant and, with low expectations, was pleasantly surprised (except for the pungent smelling smoker who served my dessert). Too bad they charge for internet access.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Side Gallery, just down the street, shows photographs and along with Amber productions across the alleyway has been promoting documentary work (photography and film) in the area for almost three decades. I learned there is a risk that funding will run out within the year - go support them!

Comfortable Room and Great Location

I recently spent four nights at this hotel. My room, which had a nice view of the River Tyne and Quayside, was a bit small by American standards but perfectly adequate. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large with a tub/shower combo, and the shower was powerful, not always the case in the UK. I was pleased that the hotel was quiet, too. I enjoyed the location on the Quayside, and the train station is only a 10 minute walk. I opted not to dine at the hotel, as the prices were a bit steep for me and there are several options within walking distance. Overall, I was pleased with this hotel and would certainly stay there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The Quayside pub is about a two minute walk from the hotel (if that) and offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is quite good, and I also enjoyed the atmosphere.
