The place comes with a wicked reputation not least because of the local United supporters, but the place, like the footy has been cleaned up and actually looks pretty good. On the first full day we took a bus to Durham and checked out the famous cathedral - burial place of St Cuthbert and the Venerable Bede. On the way back it was a photo-op at the …
Dave may have been underwhelmed by the fort Segedunum, but what makes the few remaining visible ruins so extraordinary is the surrounding industrial landscape, especially the shipyards. It's a wonder anything survived the intervening 1500 years at all!
Having been disconcerted by the lovely blue skies and warm day when we arrived, today has been overcast and drizzly. A true monochrome English day which has restored our faith in the English weather...
Ferry is definitely the way to go to Europe (saves that long drive South plus cost of fuel) providing you can go out of season and early in the week (price doubles nearer Friday)
Very relaxed at both ends, Wait in the queue, have a sandwich lunch and tea in the van and be guided in by ...
... a jar with some unusual buttons and had a chat to the owner before carrying on round to the castle. On the way there is a statue of Harry Hotspur, one of the Percy descents who own the castle. He's in full armour holding a sword aloft which is quite impressive but I couldn't get a picture of edward with it as he said it looked like a pig holding a lolly pop (!?!) Not sure what he was seeing but maybe the funfair rides has scrambed his brain. He wasn't too impressed by ...
... journey was fine and we stopped at the A34/M4 services to have breakfast. I took Edward to the loo and he marveled over the automatic flushes and taps. He then had to tell his mum exactly how to flush the toilet but exclaimed with horror that he hadn't explained the taps. Luckily she had worked it out and didn't return germ ridden. Last night I dyed my hair again but I left it a tad too long. I forgot how my hair takes the colour easily and left it for the whole ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Newcastle City Centre Newcastle upon Tyne
the hotel was in a great location, everywhere we wanted to go ie. the carling academy and the central station were literally round the corner.
Went to Newcastle to watch my team play up there. Have been to a few Holiday Inns and this was as good as i have stayed in. However, I e-mailed before arrival for a room not facing the road and was promptly informed this had been done. Also, i could check in at 10.00 as i had also mentioned that i would be arriving at 10.30. This was impressive!
Very nice hotel
I stayed here on business on a week night and was very impressed. The room and bathroom were both very clean and the room had individual air conditioning so you could get the temperature just right.
Great location 1/4 mile from the central station and short walk to restaurants, bars etc.
There is a building site opposite and my room was facing this but I left at 8:30am and there was absolutely no noise coming from it.
I really enjoyed breakfast - it might be fairly basic for some however it had all the things I needed which included cereal, toast, fruit salad, yoghurt, OJ & tea/coffee etc. Considering it was included in the price it makes this hotel very good value for money.
I would stay here again.
Breakfast not good.
this hotel is quiet new.
there is a buiding site opposite,but that wont be forever.i found the room a little small,but ample for our needs.
breakfast was a dissapointment.
we do rather continental,but there was no cheese the first day.
i did mention it,and after that,this was not a problem.
checkin was fast,but the receptionist was not so friendly.
parking is a bit expensive in the local unsecure park.
it has cameras,but no guarantee of your car being ok.
this cost 8 pounds per night. i dont think i would stay here again.
My g/f and I would normally look for something more individual but Newcastle didn't seem to offer that, so we checked here, found the favourite, and booked.
This is a new chain hotel in a very central location. Easy to find although there is building work still going on around the hotel at the moment so the immediate vicinity is not too attractive! There is also limited parking at the hotel so you will need to use the nearby multi storey at £8 per 24 hours.
Booked into this hotel as we had tickets to see 'Little Britain' at the City Hall, and rather than pay the £35 taxi fare home (we live quite local) decided to make it a special night.
Fantastic location , everything brand new
The staff were very nice , friendly and attentive. The hotel was the best hotel for value that I have ever stayed in.
I was surprised by the vast selection available at breakfast which was included in the price.
There are bew apartments being built opposite the hotel , when these are finished the view will be improved . This didnt affect my opinion of the hotel.
The Hotel is also just a stones throw from the cosmopolitan (gay) bars of newcastle and just opposite the new powerhouse nightclub. (fab)
I cant wait to stay there again.
Excellent new HI Express
I have stayed in theis hotel on several occasions since its opeing in July '05. The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk from Central Station, and a similar distance from the city centre. About 10 minutes walk to Quayside.
As befits a new build hotel, everything is brand new and spotless. The reception staff are efficient and friendly. Ask for a room away from the road, as the noise can be distracting.
On my most recent stay, I was allocated a disabled room. This was *huge* compared to the standard room.
My daughter is in the process of relocating to Newcastle and we had one day to view five potential properties. How relieved we were to be staying at a no fuss hotel. Booking was simple and instant online and at £65 for the room, the price was right. Reception staff were helpful and friendly. After a hard day, we were able to be in our room within minutes of arriving. The only drawback was the lack of car parking on the site. As the area is being developed, this may be rectified in the future. The room was well laid out with a super clean shower room and toilet. This had ultra violet, low level lighting to avoid disturbance in the night. The beds were comfortable, with modern and attractive bedlinen. Adjustable reading lights were useful. Storage is open plan, but functional and adequate. Tea making facilities were well poitioned and safe. Thechnological support, including Internet point, telephone and TV was good. The interactive system allowed quick checkout and gave the personal touch with an on screen welcome.
