Freezing cold rooms!!

Room was freezing on arrival, asked cleaning lady whether we had operated the heater (very loud unit next to window) correctly. After 90mins of no increase in heat we asked to move rooms. Reception were very accommodating and moved us to a room with a kitchen area. This was equally as cold and took over an hour to increase in heat with blowers up full. It is so loud and impossible to keep on during the night. It was freezing and only 12'c when we awoke. The ceilings on the rooms hadn't been painted and you looked up at cement! Bathroom was clean but very cold and good facilities if you wanted to cook yourself. Reception area is very nicely decorated and a complimentary tea/coffee machine available. Would never go back due to the temperature of the rooms and lack of heating system, never encountered one like it in any hotel before. A budget hotel would trump this establishment everytime as noone wants to endure a night in a 12'c room sitting with coats on!

Dirty weekend

Great two day stay at the Sandman, it's not our first stay there but we normally stay in the junior suite, however the king room is for me more suitable as it is more compact and I don't use the kitchen in the suite and the room still has the walk in shower.

Disappointing Birthday Treat

We stayed at this hotel for one night; when we arrived at the hotel the knowledge of local parking facilities were not fantastic thus we had to call up the car park and pay at 8am over the phone (this took 10 minutes). Once in our room; although it was a lovely room, the bed was shoddily made on the right hand side. Upon further inspection during our stay we noticed that the finish of the room/ bathroom left much to be desired from a 4 star hotel. Post concert that night we went to get drinks from the lobby drinks machine (which was free for guests) unfortunately to realise that it was out of Coffee. Breakfast was not an option to add at payment, I naively thought this would be fine as the bar downstairs provided this amenity,however we refused to pay £18 EACH for us to have a cooked breakfast and took to Newcastle in search of breakfast which was not especially fruitful on a Sunday morning and ended up in Costa. In total: the lack of correct finishes and the expensive details made for a highly disappointing stay, for what was supposed to be a 4 Star Hotel. Sadly, I feel this hotel either needs to up their presentation/ attention to detail or drop their star rating.

Pricey but worth it

Top experience, great staff, modern rooms with 2 plasmas mini kitchen was great with hob and cooker (no fridge though) great wet room with rain shower. Only complaint was showers were only warm on day 1, and didn't even get warm on day 2. Other than that, perfect. Highly recommended...

Great hotel and location

This is the best hotel I have stayed at in the UK, the location was perfect (close to shopping, food, train station), and it was also very clean and nicely decorated with good value for money. Only minus for me was that breakfast was not included, but tou could buy it from the club/restaurant which was in the same building. Would definately recommend it to anyone travelling to Newcastle!
