This is about the sixth time to this hotel. First time we booked a small double, my bathroom at home is bigger. Definitely avoid room 320, I'm not sure what is above whether it is another room but the ceiling creaked all night. Very central so expected some noise but not someone walking about all night above us. Possibly stay...

Dear Lynn2207 Thank you very much for your review, I am so that your stay did not live up to expectations. Due to the age of the hotel they layouts in bedrooms do vary from one to another, however we have just started a full refurbishment programme for the full hotel, which will incorporate the bedrooms. Can I please ask...

traditional hotel with comfy room in city center and what's not to like. Shower was amazing and location the best. The parking was secure and reasonable, right outside the back. I went for a wander and had dinner by the river very nice!

Booked a Sunday night at the hotel for a work event as it was a lot cheaper than getting a taxi home to Durham. The location, value and service was first class..would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone.

Stayed here on a Tuesday night. The room was perfectly suitable for a one night stay but the photos are quite misleading because the decoration was very tired. My duvet cover was ripped a bit at the side, as was the actual bed. There was also a relatively constant tapping noise from one of the pipes, which would keep any...

Not stayed here for a few years and it has obviously had a major makeover. No problems at all, clean, tidy, nice furnishings, helpful staff and ideal for the town and station. Great value as well. Recommended.

We had to stop in Newcastle unexpectedly due to the weather and decided to try and make the most of it. We enquired about family rooms and were shown a number of options. The lady from the hotel couldn't do enough to make sure we were happy with what we chose, even bringing extra hot chocolate sachets up for our...

I had an overnight stay in this hotel as I was visiting Newcastle on business. The room I was given was a small one on the 5th floor. It was warm and clean with good facilities, but I do wonder how a couple might have managed in such a small room. I may have been allocated this room because I...

Very well located for several amenities - O2 Arena, Life Centre, Metro Radio Arena, a Metro stop just outside.Walking distance to Eldon Square for shopaholics (of which I'm not!) Attended a course yesterday to begin with, and yes, the conference rooms can get cold but just dress warmly - no doubts this...

Just returned from a 1 night stay at the county hotel Newcastle. I've stayed at this hotel 3/4 times when it was the thistle and it used to be great, the rooms are nice and the hotel location is second to none! This time round I was taking my wife for a surprise midweek stay. To treat my wife I...
