The Vermont Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Absolutely gorgeous hotel! My husband and I first visited for our 25th wedding anniversary a few years ago and we have returned lots of times. Our most recent visit was last week. Slap bang in the middle of Newcastle. Five minute walk to the town centre and the same to the Quays. Cannot fault it. Staff are fab, hotel amazing and the best breakfast we have ever had in a hotel.

Very good location in central Newcastle, near most of the tourist attractions. Room was comfortable. Staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was extensive and well-cooked to order. Parking is possible on site for no extra charge.

You can't fault the concierge or reception staff at the Vermont - all very kind and efficient however the rooms let the hotel down. They're particularly small with very little room to move between the wall and the bottom of the bed. There was also no air con so we had to open the window for the night and with the hotel being directly under the train bridge the noise was pretty horrific. Being a highly star rated hotel, I'd expect there to be more in the way of toiletries in the bathrooms too - there were only a shampoo, body wash and a half used body lotion. The rooms in general feel like they need updated - while I get the fact that the hotel is classic rather than modern, it felt a little tired

This was my fiancée and my second trip to the Vermont after staying in other hotels in Newcastle. Very grand hotel, excellent location, great food and very comfortable rooms. Arrived by car on both occasions and more than happy with the parking arrangements and the Concierge. Rooms very quiet even when facing the railway lines! All-in-all, great stay on both occasions and top tip is breakfast delivered to room. Well worth the extra fiver for two. Will definitely return!

I attended an academic conference in May 2018 in Newcastle. The conference was excellent but featured unappetizing food. Typically conference hotels are inexpensive and unimpressive. The Vermont Hotel was the conference hotel and was TOTALLY impressive. The rooms were large and comfortable. Wi-Fi was free and robust. The room amenities were excellent. One thing I missed was an in-room safe. The breakfast was 5-star. One could choose from a nice buffet or order a hot meal. A colleague ordered a traditional English breakfast and it was remarkable. My omelet was very good. The attentive staff supplied us with tea and coffee and were very courteous. The hotel overlooked the Tyne and was adjacent to Newcastle castle. It was conveniently located near the train station. The views were excellent. Perhaps the neatest thing was flanking Rolls Royces. There were two Rolls at the entryway, two NEW Rolls. The concierge called them hotel courtesy cars. Maybe not for an academic but nice nonetheless. The hotel is a luxury hotel but the room rates were not high. There are several bars in the hotel and I heard from friends that they were very good.

Stayed for one night in a twin room. Hotel looks fabulous from the outside and interior decor is gorgeous. Room itself was lovely with all facilities we required. It got very hot however and didn’t appear to be any air con. Room service was ordered through the night and delivered promptly and with a smile! Very clean and would definitely recommend. Good value for money.

Great afternoon tea the staff were really friendly kept us topped up with coffee and water. Explained the menu and asked about allergies. Food was fresh and we didn’t feel rushed, left mega full. Only reason I didn’t give it’s 5 stars was it was a red hot day and the restaurant was quiet stuffy & hot there was no windows or doors opened which wasn’t the case when I went for lunch another occasion, also one of the cakes was very dry & inedible. Pleasant visit & will return.

One of the very few experiences where everyone at hotel seem genuinely interested with guests. Everyone from reception, to restaurant, to other services, all were cordial and professional. It is one hotel definitely recommended to visit. The rooms are well presented and quiet. The hotel location is also incredible as many venues are within walking distance. Congratulations to all at the Vermont Hotel!

Stayed 1 night here and was very impressed. Very central with parking made it a big plus. The building and the public areas are grand with lots of comfortable sofas and seating areas. The staff are very friendly. Our room was small but clean. The bed was really comfortable. We particularly liked the bath and the huge, soft towels. We wanted for nothing. Tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits, a full size hairdryer and a mini bar which we didn’t indulge as the contents were quite pricey. We didn’t eat in the restaurant at night but the breakfast was superb. A good choice of hot or cold buffet or you could choose something a little more specialist from the menu. Plenty of choices with speciality teas too. The reason I rated this hotel a 4 instead of a 5 is it stands beside the railway line and the trains are passing by on a regular basis and are quite loud. However, I don’t recall hearing any during the middle of the night until about 7ish the following morning but we stayed over the bank holiday weekend. We would definitely stay here again but would probably request a room at the front of the hotel.

This is a hidden gem in the centre of Newcastle, I went to a work colleague’s wedding there and was amazed at both the venue and quality of service. I didn’t stay overnight but the people I talked to that did said the rooms were stunning, this coming from people that travel regularly through work is no small praise. If you get a chance to visit the roof top bar on a sunny day you definitely won’t be disappointed.
