        Fantastic staff ”

        I stayed at this hotel as it was in central Newcastle, next to the station and lots of restaurants nearby. Unfortunately the reason for my visit was to see a relative who was seriously ill and in hospital. The staff were great, asked how she was following her operation, asked if she was still on ventilator, they were just so genuinely nice and interested. I will in the coming months be making many more trips to Newcastle and I will be staying here.

        Check-in process was swift. Friendly staffs, big and clean room, comfortable bed and pillows, conveniently located near train station, walkable to city center (Eldon Square, St James Park, etc) and breakfast is provided. However the lifts at ground level were down throughout our stay due to other guest misuse the keycard access for the lifts. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here and will come back again if we visit Newcastle.

        location

        The hotel is located just off the coach station (about 5 minutes walk away). It's basic, but it's clean and comfortable with friendly staff. The plus point was the free breakfast for the two mornings we were there. When I booked thru Agoda, it wasnt with bfast but apparently, bfast comes free in Express Inns. Chinatown isnt too far away either. The only con was that taxis were a bit hard to come by; the ones we flagged down didnt stop (not sure why).

        Very ordinary Hotel. Not worth the price”

        Neat and tidy. Well-known brand only.

        Well, I shouldn't say it's really bad. But the problem is it's not worth \. The location is fairly okay, just 10 mins walk to central station. It's good to have neat and tidy hall. The lift looks gloomy. Dim light. Light going to dungeon. The room is neat, but very ordinary. just a CRT monitor for such price! THe toilet is really....no toothbrush until i went to reception to get it. The "soap" and non-labelled ?shampoo seems the same. THe shower is weak. The only thing good is it's got free WiFi access in the main hall/cafe area. Next time i travelling to Newcastle, i definitely not choosing this, unless the price is halved.
