Copthorne Hotel Newcastle

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

In a great location for metro arena and the city centre , bars and restaurants very close by , the hotel is very nice , large rooms and very specious , our room was at the back we had a lovely full length window in our room and a small table and chairs so we could sit and have a drink and watch the world go by

Special occassion sunday lunch for my mother in law, setting overlooking the river in a large airy dining room was perfect on a sunny day. 5 or 6 choices for each course, our group sampled most of them and all were good particularly the beef which restaurants seem to struggle to get right. Service good, neither rushed or unattentive.

This is not a review for hotel accommodation. I have stayed at the hotel and its lovely so is the food, drink and breakfast and staff. This is a review for afternoon tea using the Woucher deal I bought and really sorry to say but it's the worst afternoon tea I've ever had. I have had afternoon tea in a few locations (Fenwick, Hilton, Whitworth Hall) and I have had afternoon tea here before. It was a Christmas afternoon out with work (fizzy one) and it was really nice but this one was just poor. Unimaginative sandwiches, mass produced cake, not even butter supplied for the scone etc. Everything on the plate looked like it had been made in bulk to feed lots of people quickly. No effort, nothing special. I have to say though our waiter John was lovely and helpful and my g and ts were nice on such a hot day. Sorry Copthorne but I'll be giving the afternoon teas a miss in the future

Public areas are fine but bedrooms starting to look tired. No guinness in bar, that's a first for me!! Smell in bathroom as if someone had been smoking, very unpleasant to a non smoker. If booked for breakfast there is plenty of choice but some of the hot food was not that hot.

Once again, staying overnight at the Copthorne made our visit to the Sage a complete experience. It coincided with my wife's birthday on the 24th so the position and improved weather ensured a lovely trip.

The location is brilliant with a lot of (possibly all) with a river view, once in your room its bug enough (i never need a suite) and peaceful and whilst I didn't use the bar this time I have previously and its very good / reasonable prices. The breakfast is spot on, although if you there by yourself do be careful of too attentive wait staff removing your coffee :) this was quickly rectified so no harm no foul

Lovely location overlooking the Tyne and good views of the Various Bridges. City Centre and Quayside within easy reach. Rooms are very dated and worn, with air con. difficult to set. breakfast was average but edible. Staff in the main very polite and friendly.

This is the 2nd time my friend and I have visited the hotel for afternoon tea and it was a lot nicer than I remembered it to be . The service we were given couldn’t be faltered in the slightest and the food was lovely (I’m a really fussy eater) but the gentleman who served us (sorry I can’t remember his name) but he had fair hair ,was really understanding and listened to everything I asked . Lovely view of the river ‘we’ll definitely be back ‘ Thank you

Very clean, well equipped twin room. Beds very comfortable and the breakfast was very good. The staff were all very pleasant and welcoming.It is right on the banks of the river. I will definitely stay again. Good value for the money.

Stopped here for a couple of nights. Quick check in from a friendly member of the staff. One reason that I chose this hotel was the fact that it's quite near the railway station. If you do plan to walk to the station just be aware that a very steep uphill climb is involved. Decent sized desk in my room, so good for working. Good speed from the free WiFi service. Ate in my room with the food arriving quite quickly, tasty and piping hot. A bit of noise from the nearby Metro line - when the trains cross the bridge. The fabric of my room was OK but slightly dated and a bit 'tired'. Not many mains power sockets in evidence. Folks expect plenty of these to allow all the devices, that travellers now carry, to be kept powered/charged. If I'm in the area again I would consider making a return visit.
