Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Greys club, went into the toilets and have a bouncer jump to look over the door of the toilet when I had locked it. When I confronted him he left and Ignored me, the spray guy also ignored me after this. Unacceptable really, privacy invaded and he also saw my privates.

Grey Street is a magnificent street of Georgian architecture which forms one of the key parts of central Newcastle. This city has thankfully revived greatly from a significant decline in the 1960s and 1970s, and this is particularly nice since it really is a very lovely and striking city with beautiful streets and views beyond even the iconic scenes along the Tyne and its bridges. Grey Street is one of the most magnificent parts of the city. It is lined with a cohesive set of grand Georgian buildings and, with its gentle curves as it descends/ascends a gentle slope, this provides a particularly striking and scenic view. Moreover, it is partly pedestrianised and lined with cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops, with much nice outdoor seating along the street, the pedestrianised quality making it especially pleasant and peaceful. Grey Street is at the heart of what has to be one of the grandest sets of Georgian urban architecture in the country. This is a magnificent urban scene worthy of any great city.

Newcastle Upon Tyne is amazing. So much to see.

Grey Street is beautiful, full of history.
We stayed in the City for about 5 hours, roaming around Newcastle Castle, Grainger Market, Central Arcade, Dean Street & Newcastle Cathedral.

We used the Metro to get to Monument station, city is easy to walk around and worth a couple of visits as it has many hidden gems.

I maybe a bit biased but I love this part of Newcastle. During the day you can admire the beautiful Grey's Monument which overlooks this amazing Street. The architecture is breathtaking including the Theatre Royal. At night this brilliant street comes to life with great places to eat and drink. They say that a true Geordie is born on the banks of the Tyne, well include me in this because I was born on this street many years ago.

Grey Street is one of the main roads leading from the Grey Monument

It takes you down the hill towards the River Tyne. There are a number of art galleries and restaurants on the road.

The architecture on this street is stunning. The Theatre Royal is on the road and lots of other beautiful buildings.

Without a doubt one of the most splendid streets in the country. The way it sweeps down to the river is stunningly graceful. Particularly appreciate the improved priority for pedestrians. Stand at the top, just below the Monument for the best view.

This is probably Newcastle's best street in terms of architecture. There are a few pleasant independent shops and restaurants but these are only a side show. It is worth a stroll down here on the way to the quayside.

Grey Street in Newcastle connects the City Centre with the Quayside. If you get off the metro at Monument, you can just stroll down amongst the amazing buildings designed by John Dobson.
The Theatre Royal can be found there, and several good cafes, pubs and hotel line the street. It is a nice walk on a sunny day.

My boyfriend and I came here for the weekend. Its in a good location to Quay Side, Shops, Station and Bars. Hotel near enough to attractions but not right beside the noisey pubs either. The rooms are clean and fresh and the staff are nice. Good rate too for the Sunday!!

Lovely hotel, fab location for shopping, restaurants, bars and river walks. Check in was a little delayed but staff arranged drinks in the bar while we waited.
