My partner and I spent 1 night here in August. We paid £70 for a standard double room.
Upon arrival we found the parking rate was £9 for an overnight stay which is ridiculous but there was no other parking nearby so £9 it was!
We got to reception and the young lady on shift got us muddled up with another reservation which just wasted more time and given you can't check in until 3pm, was quite annoying.
Our room was nice with a great view of the milennium bridge and river. The bathroom was very clean but the carpet in the room needed hoovered. And for a bottle of water it was £3.90 - I think not!
We had a great sleep and the bed was very comfortable. Check out isn't until 12 so it was nice to lay in and have plenty of time for breakfast.
We had breakfast in the hotel. It was a further £10 each for this and it was a fairly standard breakfast - cereal, yoghurt, pastries and a cooked buffet. We were seated quickly but when we went up to get breakfast, we came back to no table! We were then moved and given no apology from the waiting staff for their disorganisation. The food itself was fine but not quite £10 worth.
Our overall stay was good but I don't think we would stay here again on our visits to Gateshead. More
