Copthorne Hotel Newcastle

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

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.
