Copthorne Hotel Newcastle

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's been around 26 years since last stayed here and I think it needs a makeover. Its not bad but there is something lacking. The hotel itself is very well located. Particularly for some excellent restaurant and bars nearby. The Orchid directly opposite is highly recommended. Its only a short walk to the quayside bars and a little further up the hill you will get closer to the city centre. Of course you can stop off at the many bars/restaurants on the way to break your journey up. The standard room was... well.. standard. Good size room and a river view. Tea and coffee making available. Decent Tv with good quality picture. Something not always the case in other hotels. Didnt use the bar as no doubt it would have been far more expensive than local places. The breakfast was a buffet style. We enjoyed it and it was good quality. Full English, croissants, fresh fruit and cereals etc. No issues with check in or out. Pleasant efficient staff. Parking was simple and take note. It is £9 for the night. To conclude, a reasonable place to stay depending on how much you get the room for.

Stayed for 2 nights and would recommend. Stayed overnight to attend a conference which was being held in one of the conference rooms. Great service during the conference and the dinner provided was great. The room was very spacious and overlooked the river with excellent views. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Would recommend.

Two nights here Hotel right next to the Tyne so a bit of a climb to town centre. Used the steps opposite but would not recommend at night as no lighting However room had excellent views along the river Slight noise early in the morning from the metro travelling over nearby bridge Good buffet breakfast Will use again

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night, and whilst there was nothing major to complain about, my overriding impression was that the hotel is wasting its potential. The room was a good size, with a nice view over the Tyne, I did however panic when I saw the hairdryer on the wall in the bathroom (how old??) but on further inspection I found a proper one in a drawer. As neither my husband are I like sparkling water, we were not impressed that one of the 2 bottles of water provided was sparkling, but this was a minor niggle. When we checked in, much to our delight, we were given 2 vouchers for a complimentary drink at the bar. Just a shame the choices were limited to John Smiths, Fosters or the house wine. The breakfast was fine (free with the room price) and the restaurant was nicely situated, it just felt a little lacking....but then so did everything. The decor is dated and certainly needs modernising, but they could also make so much more of the space downstairs. It's a lovely location, and it could be a lovely hotel again, currently it's just ok and sadly it wouldn't be my first choice when I return I'm afraid.

Fourth stay, great location for Metro Arena and town centre. excellent food and drinks, staff friendly and attentive. Great views of the iconic bridges and overlooking the Tyne. Sure we will return. Ideal for weekend breaks, easy access from the A1.

Loved our 1 night stay. Very clean and food was amazing in the restaurant. Breakfast I would have loved a bit more variety. The bathroom could do with an update. The views from our room were amazing as it was a clear sunny night and the reflection on the Tyne just out of this world.

Hotel situated at a great location on banks of Tyne with views of iconic bridges, Sage and Baltic from restaurant. Pleasant way to take Afternoon Tea especially if taking time to walk along quay side. The Tea itself offers nothing elaborate but has the typical finger sandwiches, cream scones and cakes. Voucher deal presumably setting the budget but a gin cocktail adds to the occasion. Well worth doing.

Spent a lovely couple of hours with my daughter having tea and cakes/sandwiches here, overlooking the River Tyne. Very good selection of goodies well presented and the Staff were friendly and attentive. I would recommend a visit.

This iconic hotel on Newcastle quayside was always deemed to be the posh 4 star hotel. This may have been the case back in 1991 but it’s certainly not the case now! The atrium and reception are very inviting but the second you walk into the bedrooms you are met with tired, outdated decor and furnishings and bathrooms that are too small, with chipped enamel and rust in the bath tubs. Desperately in need of a major overhaul!!!

Great quayside location, rates great, upgraded to Suite, breakfast good, food in bar was iffy, ordered steak sandwich for lunch - steak was tough grisly and cold... I would not let this put you off even if you don’t like the food here Newcastle is full of eateries.. would definitely stay here again
