Interior design was very nice and surprisingly upscale. Rooms had very nice amenities, such as a rain shower, heated towel racks, fridge, and microwave. Free and fast WIFI, too. Hotel is in need of some upkeep, especially for a place that is aiming to present itself as upscale -- e.g. small but visible water stain in the ceiling of our room and some other minor upkeep issues. Nothing unclean or dangerous though.
Checking out Everything
Breakfast was freshly cooked. Was difficult to find - situated in an area that 'has alot to be desired' Outlook was of a rail bridge and underneath it's arch's - the 'homeless' living. Not recommended for a saturday night stay - unless you like the noise/music until 3am of the pubs and clubs.
Situation of hotel.easy access to shops,bars.cleanliness
Location of hotel Had to stand and wait 25 minutes for soneone to come and book us in at the reception No heating provdided apart from mini desk heater which did not provide much heat at all mould on the bathroom ceiling and walls and stunk curtains were not big enough to cover the window which made the room cold and draughty. Waited 40 minutes for breakfast in the morning where we sat in a cold room because of the heating not working
Staff very friendly and helpful Public areas very worn
clean /comfortable room situation as it was very noisy until about 4am also they ran out of supplies for cooked breakfast
Requirements met for a one night stay.Good value for money-£45.
I like the location, the hotel is really near the centre. The bed wasn´t comfortable
the black mould all over the bathroom ceiling!!!!
people were very friendly
good facilities in room;very central for the city; clean; Disappointed that restaurant was not open on Sat.; unable to find entrance easily when on foot; steep stairs to haul luggage up from this entrance
The evening meal I thought the Hotel was shabby, noisy, my room smelt of smoke although it was non smoking. I thought the room was poor quality for the cost.
Staff were friendly and it was very central, outside noise minimal. Breakfast on Monday was chaos - items running out, lack of staff. Shower was dreadful. General appearance dreary.
Going to my sons graduation, only The state of the hotel was dire, cleanleness left alot to be desired, security appauling, the bar closed at 10:45, not good in a hotel. I was charged twice. The reviews were not brilliant, but they should be worse, I would not rate it 2 star let alone 3 star.
location very good parking charges
Excellent location of hotel, right next to the city centre. Twin room was clean, tidy and comfortable and the breakfast was also excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpfull, will definatley stay here again. Meal in resturant at night wasnt that nice.
the rooms were cold poor wall controls and no instructions made in a cold stay
Service and Food
closeness to northumbria uni
Everything was great.
Made to feel welcome and our needs as a family were responded to very efficiently and with genuine willingness Our room was too hot on night one although when I asked for a fan we were given a different and cooler room
Friendly staff. Good food. Value for money. Breakfast was poor. Some cheese would do the trick!
