Diamonds from coal

A travel blog entry by wernicki


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 …

...Happily Ever After

... appetites further and we are already thinking about our next adventure to Scotland. Edinburgh and the North of England have been very interesting and provided the cultural and historical elements to our trip. All that remains now is to thank you all for reading and commenting on our blogs and to Len for providing the taxi service between Taunton and Bristol and of course a very large pile of washing! Until the next adventure... ...

Day Twenty Six (18.9 miles...cum 496.7)

A travel blog entry by jogling-noyes


... as we put the world to rights in a very good natured way. As Robert is at Newcastle Uni, he is considered local and as a result has already been invited to house and dog sit when they go away for w/e's! I am very envious as the house is lovely, set in a beautiful setting, looking down the valley. So an average day's walking that ended on a high with great company from Peter, Jo and ...

Up and down (and up and down) the Coast Road

A travel blog entry by needlemind


... felt very long indeed, as though we would never get there... But eventually we did. The road across to the island was dry, and we parked up in what appeared to be the only car park on the small island. Leaving the car behind we set off on the one mile walk to Lindisfarne Castle. With the clock ticking - we had less than an hour before the road of the island became completely submerged - we rushed around the (admittedly quite small) castle at breakneck speed. Actually it was quite ...

The Lambton Worm

A travel blog entry by craigandrea


Today was all about Sunderland and my cousins there. For those that don't know, my mum was from Sunderland. She had a brother and two elder sisters. This meant quite a few cousins. We normally went down to Sunderland every year, and some of them would come up to stay with us too. It has been many many (too many) years since I have seen them, my fault for which I am sorry. I got in touch with my cousin Dorothy via FB and asked if she would ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Newcastle City Centre Newcastle upon Tyne

    Spotlessly clean!!!


    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.

    Great Position for Nightlife/NUFC


    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.

    Efficient and friendly


    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.

    Great location, clean and good service


    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.

    The way all hotels should be !!


    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.

    State of the art


    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.
